Hartley Suite Staff Social Centre University of Southampton

Event details

Dr Mary Hammond (English) has been awarded £2,191 by the University’s Internationalisation Fund to host a symposium which will launch an important new international book history project called ‘Printers on the Move: Transnational Migration, Identity and Printing Skills Transfer in the English Speaking World, 1840-1914.’

The symposium, called 'Ports of Departure', will take place in the Hartley Suite, Staff Social Centre, on the 9th October 2010 to launch the ‘Printers on the Move' project. The project aims to bring together archivists, museum curators and scholars from a minimum of seven countries and a range of disciplines in order to investigate the global movement of skilled print workers and their equipment in the 19th century, with a view to understanding how international relations were moulded through print culture in this period. Southampton's symposium will focus on the main ports of departure used by these printers and will include speakers from Edinburgh, Wellington (New Zealand), Calcutta, London and Southampton. It will follow a project planning symposium on ‘Methods and Resources' held at Queen Margaret University, Edinburgh Sept 30-Oct 2, funded by the Gladys Krieble Delmas Foundation.
