Thursday 20 July 2017

Dr Elizabeth Savage, Lecturer and British Academy Postdoctoral Fellow in Book History and Communications, has been named as a juror for the Association of Print Scholars' (APS) grant programme, 2017-19. Dr Savage will be one of three leading members in the field who decide which of the members’ projects to fund for the next two years. 

Dr Savage says, "I’m delighted to serve this international scholarly society’s aims to advance research into the history and practice of printing and to facilitate knowledge exchange between researchers across the disciplines and practicing printers and printmakers. It’s thrilling to be able to advance the interdisciplinary, object- and practice-based approach to the history of the book and printed communications, which the APS fosters, for which the IES is a national research centre in the UK, and which is central to my own research, through this new funding scheme to support innovative print scholarship around the world."

The APS is a non-profit organisation that encourages interdisciplinary methodological approaches to the history of printmaking. It welcomes innovative scholarship on printmaking and collaboration among the print community. To find out more information on APS, follow the link to their website here.
