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
