*Workshop description*

### Tales of Interrogated Type (Parallel Publishing)

In the publishing business, the term 'parallel publishing' is used to
describe the production of the same content or information in more than
one medium (typically paper and screen). In this workshop, OSP would
like to test out how to work collaboratively on a document that is
produced simultaneous with a conference, and how its content might
change in the transformation from live event to publication.

Together with participating students, we will set up a temporary
workspace (virtual and physical) from where we can respond to themes
brought up in the conference. As a point of departure, we will bring
with us some of our favourite anecdotes about the creation, production
and distribution of 'engineered' typography. During the workshop we
would like to gather a collection of stories and tales that interrogate
the practice of norms, formats and supports. Performative exercises,
experiments, interviews and visual comments will be gathered in small
publications, launched every conference day.
