The thirty-first Print Networks Conference on the History of the British book trade will take place at the University of Chichester on 23rd-25th July 2013. Due to the proximity of the conference venue to the south coast, 'Travel, Topography and the Book Trade' has been chosen as the theme for the conference. The theme is broadly defined, and any papers relating to the production, distribution and reception of texts and images about travel, imagined and real, from the Middle Ages to the modern era will be considered. Papers on travelling and migrating practitioners of the book trade, the physical movement of texts and travelling printing technology are also welcome. The geographical scope for the conference is Britain and the Anglophone world. Papers should be of 30 minutes' duration.

An abstract of the offered paper should be submitted (preferably via email) by 31st January 2013 to: Catherine Armstrong C.M.Armstrong@mmu.ac.uk

Or by post to: Dept of History, Politics and Philosophy,Manchester Metropolitan University, Geoffrey Manton Building Rosamund Street West, Manchester M15 6LL
