SHARP 2004 :
call for papers

Lyon (France)
20-24 July 2004

Deadline : 30 November 2003

The twelfth annual SHARPconference will be held in Lyon, from Tuesday 20 July through Saturday 24 July, at the Ecole normale supérieure lettres et sciences humaines, one of the members of Institut d’Histoire du Livre, with Ecole nationale des chartes, Ecole nationale supérieure des sciences de l'information et des bibliothèques (enssib), Lyons City Library, and Lyons Printing Museum.

All through the year more details about transportation, accommodation, visits… will be available on this web site. The main topic of the conference will be “Crossing Borders” : cultural transfers between the old and the new worlds, on both sides of the Atlantic and Pacific. Presentations of European archival sources for the history of the book are also encouraged. As always, SHARP welcomes proposals for papers dealing with the creation, diffusion, or reception of the written or printed word in any place or historical period. Proposals for individual papers and entire sessions are welcome. Each panel lasts ninety minutes and consists of three papers ; each paper should last a maximum of twenty minutes to allow for discussion. Proposals for individual papers, 400 words in length, should give the paper title, a short abstract (if possible in English and in French), and biographical identification of the scholar. Session proposals should include a cover sheet explaining the theme and goals of the session, with separate abstracts for each paper. Both proposals should indicate their audio-visual needs. The conference languages will be English and French. A limited number of travel grants will be available to PhD candidates now engaged in writing their theses, and to independent scholars (those unaffiliated with institutions which normally support travel to conferences). If you wish to be considered for such a grant, please so indicate at the end of your proposal.
