>       The sixth annual conference of the Society for the History of
>Authorship, Reading and Publishing will take place 16-20 July 1998 at
>Simon Fraser University's Harbour Centre Campus in the heart of Vancouver,
>under the auspices of the Canadian  Centre for Studies in Publishing.  In
>the SHARP tradition, we will entertain proposals from researchers
>interested in a variety of topics.
>
>       To take advantage of Vancouver's position on the Pacific Rim and
>of interests on the west coast of Canada and the US, we would invite those
>interested in traditions of the written word in the Pacific Rim and the
>Americas; in interactions and boundaries between print and oral culture;
>in book arts (text and image); and in books in Ancient, Mediaeval and
>Renaissance periods, to submit proposals.  It is not our intention,
>however, to limit the breadth of topics addressed, a particular strength
>of SHARP conferences in the past.  We welcome suggestions for organized
>sessions.  Session submissions should include the session title, paper
>titles and abstracts of no more than 150 words for consideration by the
>programme committee.  A brief biographical note should accompany the
>abstract.  Graduate students may request a subsidy of $250 provided by
>SHARP to four (or more if possible) students who require financial
>assistance.
>
>       The Vancouver committee welcomes your participation in planning
>the conference; please contact us if you would like to join our planning
>group or if you have any suggestions.
>
>       Please submit your abstract for consideration by 31 October 1997
