Call for Papers: Bibliography and Textual Criticism Panel
SAMLA, November 8-10, 2013
Atlanta, GA

The annual convention of the South Atlantic Modern Language Association will be held this year at the Marriott Atlanta Buckhead Hotel & Coference Center, Atlanta, GA.

The Bibliography and Textual Criticism panel welcomes 15-minute papers related to textual studies, bibliography, the history of the book, authorship, rare books, paratextuality, publishing history, circulation and reader reception, and the study of archives, books, or texts as material objects. The convention theme of "Cultures, Contexts, Images, Texts: Making Meaning in Print, Digital, and Networked Worlds" is particularly relevant to this standing session, so papers addressing the theme are especially welcome.

By June 1, 2013, please email a 300-word abstract and short biography to Jeffrey Makala, University of South Carolina, at
