REBPAF - Re-mediating the Early Book: Pasts and Futures

Re-mediating the Early Book: Pasts and Futures (REBPAF) is a large-scale Marie Curie Doctoral Network coordinated by the University of Galway. It is funded by the European Union, the Swiss State Secretariat for Education, Research and Innovation, and UK Research and Innovation. The network brings together academic partners in the Universities of Alicante, Antwerp, Bristol, Vienna, and Zurich.

REBPAF focuses on the ways in which 15th- and 16th-century book producers (scribes, printers, entrepreneurs) negotiated the dynamic relations between the manuscript book and the printed book and adapted to the evolving challenges of the market, and it demonstrates the continuing relevance of these cultural and economic negotiations to the modern world. To this end, REBPAF unites the interests of present-day organisations that re-mediate the early book (e.g. publishers, book dealers, museums, and other stakeholders in the creative and heritage sectors) with those of academic scholarship.
