Call for Papers: “The Printed Weird”

48th Annual APHA National Conference
“The Printed Weird: Book History from the Margins”
Austin, Texas, October 12–14, 2023

Deadline extended to June 1. 

The American Printing History Association is pleased to announce a call for papers (PDF) for our 2023 annual conference at the Harry Ransom Center of the University of Texas at Austin. This year’s broad theme invites submissions that raise questions about established printing and book historical practices, knowledge, and objects, particularly those that present the odd or alternative, the apparently exceptional or idiosyncratic, the out of the mainstream, the contradictory to received wisdom. Proposals for individual presentations, panels, and posters are due Friday, June 1.

    Dear colleagues,

    I am a Ph.D. student at the University of Belgrade, and I’m researching Serbian printing books during the Enlightenment age. I would like to send my paper to the Conference

    The pdf says to email

  3. Only today (10/13) I learned of “The Printed Weird” conference. I understand that the Saturday presentation on Walt Whitman is free. Is there a way to view Saturday’s presentation virtually? It sounds fascinating. Thank you.

    I’ve forwarded your query to our programs VP.
