CALL FOR PAPERS:

SOCIETY FOR THE HISTORY OF AUTHORSHIP, READING AND PUBLISHING

FOURTH ANNUAL CONFERENCE

WORCESTER, MASSACHUSETTS, 18-21 JULY 1996

	The fourth annual conference of the Society for the History of 
Authorship, Reading and Publishing will meet 18-21 July 1996 in Worcester, 
Massachusetts, under the auspices of the American Antiquarian Society and 
its Program in the History of the Book in American Culture.  SHARP 
welcomes proposals for papers dealing with the creation, diffusion, or 
reception of the written or printed word in any historical period.  
Conference proceedings will be in English, but papers may deal with any 
national literature.  There are no limitations on topics, but we may 
organize special panels on comparative histories of the book; the book in 
the Americas; the collection and description of archival material and 
statistical information on printing, publishing, and reading; and future 
agendas for the field.

	Submissions are encouraged from academics, graduate students, 
librarians, professionals in the book trades, and others with a special 
angle of vision on the field.  Proposals for either individual papers or 
full panels may be submitted.

	Proposals (one pages maximum) and inquiries about the conference 
itself should be sent to: SHARP 1996, American Antiquarian Society, 185 
Salisbury Street, Worcester, MA 01609-1634 USA, fax 508-754-9069, e-mail 
cfs@mark.mwa.org.  Although submissions by e-mail and fax will be 
accepted, original hard copy is *greatly* preferred.  The deadline for 
submission of proposals is 20 November 1995.  For information about AAS 
and its Program in the History of the Book in American Culture, contact 
John B. Hench, the Society's director of research and publication, or 
Caroline F. Sloat, as above.

	SHARP is an international organization of book historians.
