The Center for Middletown Studies held a conference devoted to the
theme of “Print Culture Histories Beyond the Metropolis.” The
conference took place on March 15 and 16, 2013 in Muncie, Indiana.
The animating idea of the conference was to explore the ways that printed
material was produced, consumed, circulated, and encountered in smaller cities,
provincial districts, rural settings, colonial outposts, and comparable
contexts. The chronological focus for the conference was the modern world
(primarily since the eighteenth century) and it included papers examining print
culture in Europe, Asia, Central America, North America, and
Australia. A conference program is available here.
Streaming video of the conference sessions will soon be available
through the Ball State Digital Media Repository. Check back here for details.
