Book Trade History Conference 2017

 26/11/2017 – 27/11/2017 This year’s annual conference on book trade history will explore ways in which gender
has shaped the organization as well as the output of the trade from the early modern
period to the recent past. Issues relating to the management and practice of printing
and bookselling will be set alongside shifts in the patterns of demand, ownership and
readership, as men and women maintained or redefined their mutual roles in business
and employment, as well as in society at large.
