Since 1992, the Center for the History of Print and Digital Culture has promoted the interdisciplinary study of text, technology, and culture through lectures and colloquia, biennial conferences, short-term research and long-term postdoctoral fellowships, a book series, our Ph.D. minor, and as a home for campus research and interest groups. We encourage scholarly work on the authorship, reading, publication and distribution of print and digital materials, produced by those not only at the center, but also the periphery of power. wiscprintdigital.org
