Primarium project: free Herb Lubalin lecture

June 2023

How is handwriting currently taught in Latin-based education? What are the differences around the world, and what do we do with these insights? We will answer those questions in this FREE online lecture streaming 12 June 2023.


We’re delighted to announce that Veronika Burian and José Scaglione will present TypeTogether’s global handwriting project, Primarium, online as part of Type@Cooper’s Herb Lubalin Lecture Series on Monday 12th June. Save your spot now!

The lecture is available to view online here.

In early 2022, TypeTogether started a groundbreaking research project to examine the state of Latin script-based handwriting education in primary schools in over 40 countries in the Americas, Africa, Asia, Europe, and Oceania.

The end result will be to publish a free and public resource later this year for the typographic and educational communities. As the first of its kind, it will be full of insight and practical ways to use the information on a daily basis for teaching, learning, and further research.

This online presentation will provide a snapshot of our ongoing research, marking the beginning of our efforts to share our learning with a wide audience.

The free online lecture is part of the Herb Lubalin series and will be streamed on Monday, 12 June, 12:30–2:30 pm Eastern Standard time.
