Publishing and the Changing World - By the Book8, 21-23 June 2023

University of Porto, Portugal

The European Publishing Studies Association (EuroPub) aims to foster knowledge exchange around the contemporary book trade. By the Book brings together industry professionals, educators, and scholars to examine critical issues around the book publishing industry and take forward the developing field of publishing studies. Presentations will take different forms to accommodate the range of academic and industry voices that make By the Book, now in its eighth year, such a distinctive conference. In previous years we have discussed topics ranging from curation to the development of publishing skills.

By the Book8 will focus on changes in the book trade, past and future. Whether these are based on technological, economic or sociological phenomena, they invite us to reflect on the behaviours and practices amongst the book industry, commercial and cultural actors in the field of books, and readers. We will concentrate on notable trends in publishing, crossing different sectors from consumer to academic publishing. Of particular interest this year are the challenges for industry personnel around securing their resources, whether this concerns talent, IP, paper, or investment funds.
