The American Printing History Association welcomes proposals for Impresos: Printing Across Latin American and Caribbean Cultures, a virtual conference to be held October 22-23, 2021. The conference is sponsored by the American Printing History Association and will be hosted by the Grolier Club, New York, NY.

The conference will focus on the study of printing history and practices of peoples and cultures related to Latin America and the Caribbean. Proposals may examine the role of printing, from Mexico City in the early sixteenth century to fine-press printing and book design in the present. Papers that center the experiences of Indigenous people, Afro-descendants, Hispanic, and Latina/o/x groups are welcome.

Proposals may be made for individual papers, panels of speakers, or half-day pre-conference workshops (by practitioners of the printing arts). The deadline is May 1, 2021, for receipt of proposals, which may be in languages other than English. The 2021 APHA Call for Proposals is available at and in English, Spanish, Portuguese, and French.

The Grolier Club will host an exhibition in fall 2021 with the Hispanic Society of America, in connection with Impresos: Printing Across Latin American and Caribbean Cultures.
