What becomes of our understanding of "graphics" when we dislodge the prefix "typo-" from its long-dominant position and place it alongside those of "chiro-", "xylo-," "litho-," "mimeo-," "xero-," "seri-," and other methods and technologies that have shaped the early modern and modem eras in profound ways? This conference will track the dynamic interplay between technological change and non-typographic printing in those parts of the world where typographic printing was considered ill-suited to local writing systems and script cultures, including South Asia, East Asia, the Middle East, and North Africa. Conference speakers will examine the vitality of non-typographic publishing networks from the early modern era to the present.www.
