Topics may include, but are not limited to: * Production: audiobooks in publishing workflows, the rise of audiobook- only publishers, rights management. * Consumption: demographic analysis, usage patterns, divergence between ebook and audiobook consumption. * The economics of audiobooks: subscription services, infrastructure costs, pricing models. * Materiality: formats, standard bodies (e.g. W3C/DAISY), media choices (CD/cassette/MP3). * History: precursors to audiobooks, forgotten/alternate histories and media archaeologies. * Geography: variation of uptake across nations, licensing/rights, audiobooks in non-Anglophone contexts * Accessibility and inclusivity: text-to-speech engines as audiobooks, libraries for print-disabled users, representation through narration. * Genre: adoption of audiobooks by genre, born-audio publications, interactive audiobook publishing.
