UCLDH guest speaker: Paul Conway, 'Word and Image in 19th Century Photographically Illustrated Books: Toward Enhanced eBooks'
Publication date: Nov 27, 2013 03:11 PM
Start: Dec 02, 2013 05:30 PM

Paul Conway is Associate Professor, University of Michigan School of Information and Visiting Senior Research Fellow at Kings College, University of London.
