Digital Projects Poster Session (11/25/07; SHARP 6/24/08-6/28/08)


Society for the History of Authorship, Reading and Publishing
International Conference
Hosted by the Oxford International Centre for Publishing Studies
Oxford, England
June 24 - June 26, 2008

This year's conference theme, Teaching and the Text, is an
appropriate opportunity to highlight SHARP's commitment to digital
humanities projects, tools or techniques or work in progress. The
session also encourages proposals from any college or university
digital humanities program, center or group to present a poster that
overviews their program. Posters may include a demonstration,
traditional printed poster or a combination of both.

A brief bio and short abstracts (250-300 words) should be submitted
to Katherine D. Harris (kharris_at_email.sjsu.edu) before November 25,
2007. Please include any technical requirements (e.g., Internet
access). This panel will undergo the normal review procedure by the
SHARP conference committee. One participant for each proposal must be
a member of SHARP prior to the conference.

Founded in 1991, the Society for the History of Authorship, Reading
and Publishing is a global network of literary scholars, historians,
librarians, booksellers, and publishing professionals. With more than
1,000 members in over 20 countries, SHARP works in concert with a
number of affiliated scholarly organizations around the world to
encourage the study of book history.

The conference theme, Teaching and Text, reflects the historical and
contemporary position of Oxford as a seat of learning and a centre of
academic and professional publishing. It will be developed through an
opening plenary lecture by Professor Juliet Gardiner (author of
Wartime Britain 1939-1945), by a panel on the History of Oxford
University Press led by Professor Simon Eliot (Chair in the History
of the Book at the School of Advanced Studies, University of London),
and a final plenary panel chaired by Professor John Barnard (Emeritus
Professor of English Literature, University of Leeds), and featuring
as panellists Dr. David McKitterick (Librarian and Fellow, Trinity
College, Cambridge); Dr. Peter McDonald (Rank Fellow and University
Lecturer in English Language and Literature, St Hugh's College,
Oxford); Dr. Sydney Shep (Senior Lecturer in Print & Book Culture and
The Printer, Wai-te-ata Press, Victoria University of Wellington);
and Professor Kathryn Sutherland (Professor of Bibliography and
Textual Criticism, St Anne's College, Oxford). Further plenary
sessions will be announced later. The AGM will be hosted by Oxford
University Press, and followed by a reception. Additional social
events will include a banquet at Magdalen College and receptions at
Blackwells Bookshop and the Bodleian Library.
