"Emerging Trends in Book History and Print Culture Studies"
During this conference series, graduate researchers will explore what it means to study book history and attempt to identify emerging trends in the field.
The Book History and Print Culture (BHPC) collaborative program at the University of Toronto and Le Groupe de recherches et d'études sur le livre au Québec (GRÉLQ) at the Université de Sherbrooke (Qc) are inviting proposals from graduate students whose research pertains to Book History and Print Culture to join in a series of two-day conference and workshops. Aiming at identifying emerging trends in book history studies as well as providing a platform for exchange and networking, the series will bring together graduate researchers from universities across Canada.
Over two instalments, one to be held predominantly in French at the Université de Sherbrooke and one to be held mainly in English at the University of Toronto, graduate researchers will explore what it means to study book history in Canada and attempt to identify emerging trends in the field. To support cross-discipline and cross-language collaboration, one panel in Sherbrooke will be held in English, and one panel in Toronto will be held in French.
The organizing committee is interested in innovative book history research currently underway in Canadian institutions and pertaining to all subjects, periods, regions and stemming from all disciplines.
Proposal must be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org
Deadline to submit proposals: October 31 2012.
