[BKARTS] Call for papers: SHARP annual conference 2004

Society for the history of authorship, reading and publishing
SHARP annual conference
Lyon 2004

The twelfth annual SHARP conference will be held in Lyons, from Tuesday 20
July through Saturday 24 July under the auspices of the Institut d'histoire
du livre.
It will take place at the Ecole normale supérieure lettres et sciences

The main topic of the conference will be "Crossing Borders" : cultural
transfers between the old and the new worlds, on both sides of the Atlantic
and Pacific. Presentations of European archival sources for the history of
the book are also encouraged. As always, SHARP welcomes proposals for papers
dealing with the creation, diffusion, or reception of the written or printed
word in any place or historical period.

Proposals for individual papers and entire sessions are welcome. Each panel
lasts ninety minutes and consists of three papers ; each paper should last a
maximum of twenty minutes to allow for discussion. Proposals for individual
papers, 400 words in length, should give the paper title, a short abstract
(if possible in English and in French), and biographical identification of
the scholar. Session proposals should include a cover sheet explaining the
theme and goals of the session, with separate abstracts for each paper. Both
proposals should indicate their audio-visual needs.

The conference languages will be English and French.

A limited number of travel grants will be available to PhD students, and to
independent scholars (those unaffiliated with institutions which normally
support travel to conferences). If you wish to be considered for such a
grant, please so indicate at the end of your proposal.

All through the year more details about transportation, accommodation,
visits. will be available on the Institut d'histoire du livre's web site:
