Historiography of the Print Media: A global-cum-Nigerian perspective

  • A Odorume


The print media as we know them today have developed over a number of centuries. Any discourse on its (print media) evolution without recourse to the means of communications that preceded it, would not appreciate the long strenuous stride it had made to this present day. The print media evolved through three historical discoveries or milestones. These are the evolution of language, the evolution of writing and the invention of the printing machine. While this evolution is beyond the scope of this paper, I x-ray the events that culminated in the evolvement of the print media, chronicling their historical progression in Nigeria.
