Many new digital resources are now becoming available to the book trade historian, from Broadside Ballads Online to new work on the Stationer's Company archives. The English Short Title Catalogue, for example, is undergoing major regeneration; image-recognition technology is being applied to cheap illustrations; presses and their trading networks are being mapped; and the potential of ‘big data’ is already being explored by economic historians. This is, therefore, an exciting time to consider book trade history in the context of the uses and potential of digital resources.

The One-Day Workshop will be organized on 24 July 2015 at Chetham's Library, Manchester.

Abstracts are due 30 April 2015.

The University of Reading will hold a symposium on Modernist and early twentieth-century publishing houses on the 26th of June 2015. This one-day symposium will offer an opportunity to focus on the publishers and publishing houses who also helped to make and produce modernism. Papers are invited from scholars and groups of scholars working on any global publishing house related to modernist writing. The organizers hope that the day will offer an opportunity to explore some of the multifarious connections between these publishing houses and the writers, illustrators, press workers, managers and editors with whom they were associated.
