We warmly invite proposals for an edited collection on print culture's shaping of, or contribution to, the regional and national identities of the British Isles in the handpress period. We are particularly keen to encourage dialogue between media history, book history, literary studies, cultural geography, and gender studies. By drawing on these approaches, we aim to extend book history's engagement with the spatial turn. This collection will deepen understanding of the development of regional print cultures, highlight the agency of print personnel within that development, and interrogate the contribution that print cultures made to the formation of regional identities.
