History of Books and Publishing

The Research Group in History of Books and Publishing focuses on analyzing, understanding and describing publishing products issued in print and/or in electronic format, whether they are periodical or not, from a material and cultural point of view. The Research Group also studies the processes, industrial or artisanal, that have made and still make public these products, the role of the professionals involved and the social and economic impact of products and of the broader publishing sector as well, during modern and contemporary ages.
