      Before & Beyond Typography: Text in Global & Multimodal Perspective

      Building on the landmark 2017 event, Face/Interface, Before & Beyond Typography is an international conference at Stanford University that will explore the global history of reproductive text technologies and graphic communication from before and beyond the dominance of typography. The conference will take place April 24-25, 2020. REGISTRATION The conference is free, open to the public, and does not require registration. However, due to space limitations, we highly recommend pre-registration so that your spot is guaranteed should we reach maximum capacity (a situation which did happen in 2017 at Face/Interface). Further benefits of pre-registration are: - early access to full conference schedule- early access to potential hands-on workshops- additional information about the speakers and event OVERVIEW What becomes of our understanding of “-graphics” when we dislodge the prefix “typo-” from its long-dominant position and place it alongside those of “chiro-,” “xylo-,” “litho-,” “mimeo-,” “xero-,” "seri-," and other methods and technologies that have shaped the early modern and modern eras in profound ways? This conference will track the dynamic interplay between technological change and non-typographic printing in those parts of the world where typographic printing was considered ill-suited to local writing systems and script cultures, including South Asia, East Asia, the Middle East, and North Africa. Conference speakers will examine the vitality of non-typographic publishing networks from the early modern era to the present.  ORGANIZERS Thomas S.
