Paper proposals are welcome by Sept. 15, 2009, for the panel I am organizing on "Empire of Print" for ASECS, March 2010 in Albuquerque, New mexico:
"Empire of Print" will explore the role of print culture, production and circulation on the imperial frontiers and peripheries during the Enlightenment era. Through what channels, material and social, did European print culture travel to and from the metropolis and periphery? How might we challenge the metropolis/periphery opposition by examining the unique cultures of print that emerged far from European centers of calculation? What innovative forms, local resistances, or divergent developments can we discover by integrating the outposts of empire into our inquiries of Enlightenment-era print culture? This is a multidisciplinary and comparatist seminar (to be conducted in English), open to any aspects of print culture regardless of disciplinary tradition.
