Submission on any philosophical treatment of printmaking are welcome, but papers addressing these topics are especially welcome:
  • Is printmaking an essential part of the art-historical narrative, Western or otherwise?
  • What are the implications of the relationship between print artists and master printers for issues of authorship and artistry?
  • What are the descriptive or evaluative implications of the practices of editioning, proofing, or plate striking?
  • What are the implications of printmaking practices for print ontology–whether prints are best construed as repeateable works, single-instance works, or something else entirely?
  • How do issues of originality or authenticity for printmaking compare to those for other forms of visual art?
  • What are the implications qua art (if not also qua print) of digital prints (for example, laser C-prints or inkjet Giclée prints)?
