Don’t Press Print Conference 02 – De/Reconstructing Photomechanical Reproduction (9-10 Sept 2021)


Registration is now open for Don’t Press Print, De/Reconstructing Photomechanical Reproduction  

DPP is an annual conference organised by the University of West of England’s Centre for Fine Print Research and the Royal Photographic Society

In 2021 Don’t Press Print will take as its theme the history of photographic and photomechanical print reproduction and processes from both an historical and contemporary perspective. 

DPP02 will offer a vibrant programme, including addresses from two keynote speakers, oral and poster presentations, networking opportunities and a panel discussion.  

Keynote speakers: 

Professor Kelley Wilder, Director, Photographic History Research Centre at De Montfort University and Professor of Photographic History.  

Dr Geoff Belknap, Head Curator at Science Museum Group and author of From a Photograph: Authenticity, Science, and the Periodical Press, 1870–1890 (Bloomsbury, 2016).  

The conference will be conducted in English. We are hoping to hold an in-person conference with live streaming for those attending via Zoom, but should COVID-19 restrictions return or we don’t receive sufficient numbers of delegates wishing to attend in person, we will hold the conference online via Zoom only. You will be notified via email as soon as the decision is made.
