Share Reading Communities and the Circulation of Print: Australia, China, and Britain in the 19th Century

Event Details

This conference investigates the production, circulation and consumption of printed material in Australia, China, and Britain in the long 19th century, when technological improvements in printing, engraving, papermaking, and transport made the production and distribution of texts easier and increased opportunities for education led to rising literacy rates. Over the century, the proportion of travellers to and migrants from these three areas also increased. How did the movement of people across space and culture influence publishing and reading practices? Is the nation a relevant framework for examining histories of print culture and its circulation in this period? In what ways have histories of reading and print culture in Australia, China and Britain intersected? How has the relationship between reading and its contexts been theorized and researched?
