This PhD project originates in the contradiction between how multi-national publishing companies rely on questionable labour and environmental practices while publishing texts that promote sustainable and socially equitable values. How far back this contradiction between published ideologies and real-world practice goes is the research question at the heart of this PhD.

The candidate will develop an interdisciplinary overview tracing the environmental impact of publishing in any period from the beginning of the Anthropocene (c. 1610)  to 1900 and contrast this material history with the claims of selected publications that advocate conservation of the natural and social egalitarianism, especially concerning women and working-class writers.

The PhD candidate will also work closely with St Bride’s Foundation making use of its exceptional printing archive to develop their research and to support/increase the profile of the Foundation and its project-related activities. 

The research topic would be suitable for researchers in:

  • Literature
  • Publishing/ Media History
  • Material Texts
  • Environmental Humanities
