CFP: Making an Audience (Ireland) (10/27/06; 4/18/07-4/20/07)

Making Books, Shaping Readers

The First International Making Books, Shaping Readers Conference
University College, Cork, April 18th - 20th 2007

Theme: "Making an Audience"

which derives from the Latin audenita, "a hearing, listening", from awis,
"to perceive physically, to grasp", and from the nineteenth century
transformation of the sense of the word to "readers of a book", reflects the
way in which technologies of the word have changed throughout history, from
oral, to manuscript, to print).
