In the first few centuries after the advent of print, manuscript and print cultures existed side by side. Paper proposals are invited on any aspect of manuscript and early print interactions in any language, on any kind of text (i.e, literary, medical, scientific).
Papers might consider, but are no means limited to:
– Attitudes to, and anxieties about, early print in comparison with manuscripts
– Manuscripts copied from prints
– Joint manuscript and print codices
– The influence of manuscript mis-en-page on printing practices and vice versa
– The cultural cachet attached to manuscripts after the arrival of print
– Surreptitious manuscript copies of seditious or private texts after the advent of print
Please send abstracts of no more than 250 words to email@example.com, by 14 September 2013.
