Previous keynote speakers have included Alysoun Owen (Editor, Writers’ & Artists’ Yearbook), Bridget Shine (Chief Executive, The Independent Publisher’s Guild), Mick Rooney (The Independent Publishing Magazine), and Angus Phillips (Oxford International Centre for Publishing).

Publishing in a changing media environment
New products, new organizations and new research models
Villa Finaly, Florence
The European Publishing Studies Association (EuroPub), founded in 2016, aims to foster the exchange of knowledge around the contemporary book trade. By the Book5 brings together industry professionals, educators, and scholars to examine key issues around the digital transformation of the book, as well as to discuss the developing field of publishing studies. Presentations will take different forms to accommodate the range of academic, professional, educational, and independent voices that make By the Book, now in its fifth year, such a unique conference. In previous years we have discussed topics ranging from the evolution of cultural habits (‘Building audiences’, 2016) to the development of publishing skills (‘Curation’, 2017).
