[BKARTS] Call for Discussion Session Proposals

We are currently soliciting proposals for Discussion Sessions for the
Action/Interaction: Book/Arts Conference in June 2007 at the Columbia
College Center for Book and Paper Arts.

We are interested in proposals to lead guided discussion sessions that will
engage the audience on topics of interest to book artists. The goal of the
Guided Discussion Sessions is to provide conference attendees a chance to
actively participate in conversations that reveal the many different
perspectives in the book arts and help shape the discourse of the field. We
encourage proposers to define book arts broadly and consider related fields
such as poetry, installation, performance, experimental literature, etc.

Proposals should briefly outline a discussion topic which is likely to
elicit lively conversation with multiple points of view. The proposer should
be prepared to lead the discussion session by preparing a 5-10 minute
contextualizing presentation of the issue; keeping watch on the time;
appointing a secretary to take notes; and facilitating discussion by asking
questions and prompting participation. After the conference, the discussion
leader will be responsible for writing a summary of the session for
publication in issue 22 of JAB: The Journal of Artists Books. Discussion
leaders will receive a $150 honorarium.

Proposals are due March 1st and should be sent to what.garden@xxxxxxxxx with
a subject line of 'Conference 2007 Discussion Proposal.' Proposals need be
no more than one page and should outline the topic, its relevance to the
book arts community, and its potential for sparking an engaging exchange. We
especially encourage proposals from students and new practitioners in the

The Conference Program Committee will review all proposals and send
notification by March 30th.

Thank you,
Elisabeth Long
