**Deadline extended 8/10** SHARP at RSA: Intersectional Book History

Posted By Andie Silva, Monday, June 22, 2020
Updated: Thursday, August 6, 2020

The Society for the History of Authorship, Reading & Publishing (SHARP) will sponsor up to four sessions at the Renaissance Society of America’s annual meeting in Dublin, Ireland on 7-10 April, 2021. SHARP @ RSA brings together scholars working on any aspect of the creation, dissemination, and reception of manuscript and print and their digital remediation. Special consideration will be given to early career scholars and BIPOC applicants.

The proposed theme for this year is “Intersectional Book History.” This theme reflects ongoing conversations about engaging our work in broader political and social contexts that move the field forward and look to the needs and goals of the next generation of book history scholars. What work are we doing to centralize and call attention to under-studied, under-represented texts and authors? How has book history contributed to upholding hegemonic, exclusionary systems, and what can be done to disrupt this? What does it take to promote a book history that is radical, inclusive, and accessible?

We invite individual submissions or fully constituted panels/roundtables about the study or remediation of books and manuscripts from 1350 to 1700 across a range of perspectives, especially work that focuses on global perspectives. Roundtables may also consider provocations, theories, and new questions orienting the field. Potential topics include but are not limited to:

  • Decolonial approaches to book history and/or print culture
  • Archival studies of underrepresented authors or understudied texts
  • Feminist and Queer bibliography
  • Racialized and gendered labor in/and book production and its digital remediations
  • Women in/and the print marketplace (stationers, printers, authors, readers)
  • Decolonizing book history pedagogy

Please send a 150-word abstract and a brief CV to Dr. Andie Silva (asilva@york.cuny.edu) by 10 August (note that this is earlier than the RSA’s own deadline). Accepted applicants must be members of SHARP by the time they register for the RSA conference but if you are experiencing financial instability please do not let that keep you from applying! SHARP and RSA are both open to discussing flexible dues.

Please consider the following RSA guidelines before applying:

  • You must be a member of the RSA by the time you register for the conference. RSA will be taking into consideration the financial strains put on many due to the COVID-19 pandemic. If you are concerned about the cost of membership, please get in touch with RSA to discuss alternatives.
  • Graduate students must be within two years of defending their dissertations to be considered as speakers.
  • Individuals may submit only one paper for consideration (including rollovers from 2020). This paper may be an independent proposal, a paper proposed for a seminar session, or part of an organized panel.
