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.
Early Modern Exchanges
The Centre for Early Modern Exchanges (EME) is dedicated to the study of the diverse cultural, historical, economic and social exchanges between England and Europe, European countries, the Old World and the New in the period 1450-1800. Our work focuses on the complex intercultural interactions underlying the emergence of national identities and vernacular literatures in this period, interrogating labels such as 'England' or 'Britain', 'East' and 'West', the 'New World' and 'Europe'.
