Papers are invited for the Society for the History of Authorship, Reading, and Publishing (SHARP) affiliate session at the 2015 SAMLA Convention. Potential topics include print culture, history of the book, authorship, publishing history, ephemera, illustration, publishers' archives, circulation, and reception. Papers addressing this year's theme, "In Concert: Literature and the Other Arts" are especially welcome. What connections can be made between print culture/book history and the areas of visual art, theatre, and music? How has the relationship between print culture and the arts evolved from the manuscript age to the digital world of the 21st century?

Verge: Studies in Global Asias is a new journal that includes scholarship from scholars in both Asian and Asian American Studies. These two fields have traditionally defined themselves in opposition to one another, with the former focused on an area-studies, nationally and politically oriented approach, and the latter emphasizing epistemological categories, including ethnicity and citizenship, that drew mainly on the history of the United States. The past decade however has seen a series of rapprochements in which, for instance, categories "belonging" to Asian American Studies (ethnicity, race, diaspora) have been applied with increasing success to studies of Asia.
