CALL FOR PAPERS:
Bibliography Among the Disciplines, a four-day international conference to be held in Philadelphia from 12 to 15 October 2017, will bring together scholarly professionals poised to address current problems pertaining to the study of textual artifacts that cross scholarly, pedagogical, professional, and curatorial domains. The conference will explore theories and methods common to the object-oriented disciplines, such as anthropology and archaeology, but new to bibliography. The Bibliography Among the Disciplines program, supported by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, aims to promote focused cross-disciplinary exchange and future scholarly collaborations.
The conference sessions will include both traditional and innovative formats: plenary addresses, short presentations, roundtables, workshops, working groups, and site visits. Calls for Proposals and Participants (CFPs) are listed below. The project will culminate in 2019 with a volume of essays contributed by conference participants. The conference and subsequent volume will seek to build on the ongoing series of symposia conducted by Rare Book School’s Andrew W. Mellon Fellowship of Scholars in Critical Bibliography, established in 2012 through funding from the Foundation.
How do humanities scholars “read” the various materials, technologies, and labor practices that inflect textual artifacts? “Bibliography Among the Disciplines” will address problems pertaining to the study of textual artifacts that cross scholarly, pedagogical, professional, and curatorial domains. The broad and varied conference program aims to promote focused cross-disciplinary exchange and future collaborations among scholarly fields as well as professions.
We invite submissions for a variety of interdisciplinary sessions, including papers, short presentations, roundtables, and working groups. Please refer to our website for details.
