Print Modernities is an interdisciplinary graduate conference co-organized by the UBC departments of English, History, and Art History and Visual Art at UBC.
It seeks to bring together scholars from a wide range of fields to explore the role of print production and publishing in the experience of modernity (ca. 1845 to 1945). During this period, dramatic changes in the technologies, products and uses of print and printmaking were linked to major transformations, including revolutions in the nature of authorship and audiences, the development of a transnational print market and the visualization of modernity through mass-produced imagery. As literary modernism moved from small presses and little magazines to more commercial outlets, new literary styles and narrative techniques touched a larger audience.
Prof. Mark Morrisson from Penn State University will give his keynote address on May 2 at 4p.m. at the Green College Coach House.
Date: May 2, 3
Place: Green College
