The MAPP team are delighted to have been part of the SHARP (Society for the History of Authorship, Reading and Publishing's) annual conference at the University of Reading 1-5 July 2024, hosted by Reading's Centre for Book Cultures and Publishing, with a collections session on MAPP and the Hogarth Press archive held in Special Collections.

We also had our first in-person launch for the new Edinburgh Companion to Women in Publishing, 1900-2020 - with many of our contributors and interviewees present. And we met as an editorial group in person for the first time.

On Tuesday 9th July, MAPP's Alice Staveley will be giving a keynote address at the launch of the new WoolfNotes digital resource at King's College London, with an afterward by  Nicola Wilson. We are grateful to the WoolfNotes team for inviting MAPP to be a part of their launch event and excited by the generative possibilities of these open access resources that can now be aligned to give us a more composite sense of Woolf's writing, revising, notetaking, publishing and editing.
