Publication beyond Print: a Leverhulme Doctoral Centre

The Leverhulme Doctoral Centre Publication beyond Print seeks to challenge the dominance of the printed word in the study of human culture and society, by examining other media used before, alongside and after print. It will question the assumptions that self-expression, political community and intellectual progress are best served by printing. To do so, it will range across both historical media (some still in use), such as inscriptions and handwriting, and new digital media. In this way, it will ask how past methods of publication without print help us to understand future ones, and how emerging technology helps us to think about cultural history. It brings students of communication into dialogue across differences of time, language, discipline and technology, from the humanities to social sciences.

The Doctoral Centre has been awarded funding for three student cohorts, starting in 2018, 2019 and 2020. The Scholars also take part in shared training events and seminars dedicated to interdisciplinary reflection on that theme.
