Typography always will be subjective and like almost all kind of visual communication system, can adopt abstract ways to communicate intentions.
That said, look for communication and graphic design history. A books like "Meggs' History of Graphic Design" is a good timelined source of information that you can synchronize with your project's historichal time. Research about the typeface history. For instance, when you know that Trajan Typeface is related with ancient roman columns, you will think twice before using it to project a communication piece about ancient England history.
Cultural contexts can be target with some vernacular typography research. You can make your own research, going out and looking for facades, posters and billboards around community area your project intent to achieve, you can look in sites like Vernacular Typography Project, or others like this.
