Surely origami represents a great intersection in the social life of
paper, print, and art!  So I hope that someone will be moved to send in a
proposal.  [Dard Hunter wrote a classic history of papermaking. KMR]

The American Printing History Association (APHA) and the Friends of Dard
Hunter (FDH)  welcome proposals for their joint conference on October
25-27, 2018

The Social Life of Paper, Print, and Art

At the University of Iowa Center for the Book
Iowa City, Iowa | October 25 to 27, 2018
Proposals are due March 31, 2018

APHA and FDH invite proposals for presentations, demonstrations, and
workshops that explore the technological and cultural matrices of art
printed on or made from handmade paper. Today’s practitioners and scholars
have a rich archive of historical production methods and societal uses of
art on paper to draw from in their work and research. Be it decorative,
instructional, devotional, or functional artwork, how can this matrix of
origins and innovations be retrieved, shared, and developed? What have we
brought forward to fit what we make and use now, and what might we embed
for future makers and researchers?

We welcome presentations that consider developments worldwide from the
earliest printed images on paper in Asia, to the technological advancements
and expanding cultural engagement with art and illustration in the
Renaissance, to current uses in one-of-a-kind artworks, print editions, and
artist’s books.

Proposals are encouraged from practitioners and scholars across a range of
disciplines including papermaking, printing, printmaking, art history, book
arts, graphic design, book studies, history, religion, and material culture
