Publication date: Feb 12, 2014 11:40 AM

Start: May 08, 2014 06:00 PM
End: May 09, 2014 06:00 PM

Location: Conference Centre (Eliot & Bronte Rooms), British Library, 96 Euston Road, London, NW1 2DB


An event to celebrate the 450th anniversary of Ivan Fedorov’s Acts and Epistles (Apostol) and the 440th anniversary of his Primer (Azbuka). Fedorov is usually regarded as the father of printing in Russia and Ukraine. Supported by SSEES, the Centre for  Eastern European Language-Based Area Studies (CEELBAS), UCL European Institute and UCL Centre for Early Modern Exchanges, the conference will challenge the narrow national views of Fedorov's heritage by offering a transnational approach to the history of early printing.
