The conference will bring together scholars from a range of disciplines who share an interest in the role played by printed matter in the history of urban societies. It has created distinctive economic and social networks, contributed to the definition and production of specific urban identities, and generated new urban identities , and generated new experiences and understaning of urban life. We are interested in exploring the myriad roles of printing and publishing in the history of European urban cultures from the invention of printing to the present day.
