Typographic Landscaping

A Marcus Wallenberg Symposium

University of Gothenburg, 17-18 June 2013

Organizer: Johan Järlehed, johan.jarlehed@sprak.gu.se

This symposium brings together scholars from different fields (linguistics, graphic design, art, and urban/cultural studies) and practitioners of typographic design for an open dialogue on cultural, political, economic and technological aspects of typography. In particular, the invited papers deal with how typography is used in the urban landscape in order to construct and contest identities, communities and power relations. This is addressed by looking at a variety of issues in both specific local places and from a more general or theoretical perspective. These issues are ranging from the cultural, economic, political and technological conditions of typographic design and choices, over the reception and meaning attributed to specific letters, typefaces and scripts, to form- and design-historical aspects of the typographic landscape.
