“One Press, Many Hands: Diversity in the History of American Printing”
Registration Now Open!
University of Maryland, College Park October 25-27, 2019
APHA invites you to join us for our first conference expressly devoted to the rich history of printing and publishing in America from diverse groups. Our 2019 annual conference will join the conversation on intersections of printing history, the book arts, bibliography, and print culture studies with gender studies, queer theory, ethnic studies, Black studies, Jewish studies, and Latin@ history. Through lectures, panels, and workshops, participants will have the opportunity to engage with a critical exploration of the history of printing among America’s underrepresented communities. The full schedule includes keynote addresses, panels of presentations by scholars and practitioners, workshops, and visits to University of Maryland collections and Pyramid Atlantic book arts studio.
Keynotes and artists:
Colette Gaiter, multimedia artist, graphic designer, and writer, Professor of Visual Communications and Visual Studies at the University of Delaware’s Department of Art & Design and the Department of Africana Studies
