Join Print Exchanges – a collaborative network

This may be of interest to those of you who work on incunables and early modern print.

Alex da Costa (University of Cambridge), Aditi Nafde (Newcastle University), Devani Singh (Université de Genève) and Kathleen Tonry (University of Connecticut) are launching a network for print scholars, called Print Exchanges.

In a nutshell: Print Exchanges is a network designed to facilitate research into incunable and early modern print culture and to support early and mid-career academics, especially those who may be marginalised. It aims to help scholars make their current research more visible to others in the field through its website and to create world-wide opportunities for collaboration.

It’s unique in its emphasis on collaboration and supporting work in progress.

You can find more about it here:

Join Us
We’d love to have you on board if you’d like to join us. If that appeals and you want to add your details to the website, please send Alex at

• 100 words stating your affiliation (if relevant), broad research interests and current research project; and
• a picture of yourself (jpg or png) OR, if you prefer, something relevant to your research

Launch Event
We also have an informal launch event on 31st March by zoom, 3-4.30pm BST:

This launch event is a chance for network members to meet each other virtually and share work in progress. After a brief welcome, we will split into 3-4 breakout rooms based on attendees’ broad interests. Everyone will have 3-5 mins to introduce themselves, their latest research, and research goals for the next 6-12 months, before continuing with informal conversation. We hope this ‘cafe’ might help members to:

• clarify research questions
• share experience and knowledge
• connect with scholars working in similar areas or methodologies
• provide a motivational boost to research plans
• generate writing partnerships

If you’d like to attend please register by 25th March:
Relevant research areas: Medieval, Renaissance
