Society for the History of Authorship, Reading, and Publishing (SHARP)

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?

Teaching the Eighteenth Century (deadline Jan 30)--Vancouver, 14-17 October 2015

updated: 
Saturday, January 10, 2015 - 12:13pm
Canadian Society for Eighteenth-Century Studies

Panels and roundtables on teaching book history, on innovative course design, and on teaching, technology and digitial humanities in the 18C.

Excellent teaching is what invites the next generation of great scholars into our profession. Perhaps because of bad high school experiences, many students expect the 18th-century to be a period of dry treatises, hard-to-understand poems, and repetitive plays full of in-jokes. We know differently, but what is the best way to teach the brilliance, wit, complexity, and conflict of our period?

Building upon the models of MLA and ASECS, CSECS 2015 will offer for the second year a cluster of panels on teaching the long eighteenth century.
