'Print Culture and the Novel: 1850-1900'

A One-Day Conference, English Faculty, University of Oxford

No longer was it possible for people to avoid reading matter; everywhere
they went it was displayed - weekly papers at a penny or twopence, complete
books, enticing in their bright picture covers, at a shilling, and all fresh
and crisp from the press. No wonder that the fifties, which saw the spread
of Smith's stalls to almost every principal railway line in the country,
were also the period when the sales of books and periodicals reached
unprecedented levels.

Call For Papers â€" Edited Collection:
Telling Tales: Visual Design and Narrative in Contemporary Culture

By identifying an innovative and neglected area of research, this potential
edited collection proposes to bring together academic works, which seek to
reveal and analyse hidden and implicit narratives within a design context.
>From the world of high fashion to the thrill of the theme park, this book will
explore the notion of alternative narratives embodied within an everyday lived
 experience of design, radically forging together the disparate spheres of
screen and visual studies with those of art and design.
