The interdisciplinary conference Format Matters. Theories_Histories_Practices took place on 7-9 December 2017 in the historic auditorium Atrium Maximum at the campus of the Johannes Gutenberg University of Mainz, and on the premises of conference center Erbacher Hof in direct vicinity of the Mainz Cathedral.
The conference attracted scholars of all career stages from across Germany and beyond. We thank the speakers for their insightful presentations and all attendees for the very engaging and fruitful discussions which, notwithstanding the eclectic multitude of approaches present at Format Matters, molded the conference into a coherent and exciting network of thought.
