I have proposed the following panel for the upcoming meeting of the
Northeast American Society for Eighteenth Century Studies (9-12 Nov.
2006, in Salem, Mass.) and am soliciting proposals for papers:

Chapbooks and Knowledge in 18c Britain

How did references to, and/ or knowledge of, chapbooks figure in 18c
redefinitions of knowledge? How did those participating self-
consciously in "Enlightenment" describe chapbooks and their readers,
and how did such descriptions figure in the production, consumption,
and assessment of different kinds of print products?

If you have anything suitable that you would be interested in
presenting in this session, please send me a short proposal (one page
or less) by April 15, to jones_at_unbsj.ca.
