The Typographic Hub is a busy centre for the study of printing and typographic history, theory and practice. It welcomes postgraduate research students from home and abroad who wish to register for either a MPhil or PhD in typography and its allied fields. Throughout their studies, students are supported by knowledgeable supervisors and a specialist library covering all aspects of typography and graphic communication, including the social and economic aspects of printing. Regular typographic conferences and other events are organised by the Hub aimed at typographic academics, practitioners and students with an interest in the historical, contemporary or empirical aspects of design, or technical and practical approaches to typography. The Hub maintains an active publishing programme, and articles on all aspects of the history, theory and practice of typography, printing and the allied trades are frequently published on-line and in the academic to the popular, which are of interest to anyone with either a professional or passing interest in the subject.
