Research Conference led by the universities of Paris, Oxford Brookes, HTWK Leipzig, Ljubljana, Milan

30-31 May 2013, Villa Finaly, Florence, Italy

Going digital: merging booktrade organizations

The purpose of the conference is not merely to analyse and question the book market and its economy but most of all to try to understand the evolutions led by the transformations the book is undergoing as an object, on a European scale.

En quoi les technologies numériques nous invitent-elles à repenser les métiers du livre ? Telle est la question à laquelle nous entendons apporter des éléments de réponse dans le cadre de la rencontre scientifique qui aura lieu à Florence les 30 et 31 mai prochains lors de l’université des métiers du livre rassemblant les universités de Paris Ouest-Nanterre-La Défense, Oxford Brookes, Leipzig, Ljubljana et Milan.
