CFP: Print Culture and the Arts

‘Print Culture and the Arts’
Durham, North Carolina
13-15 November 2015

Papers are invited for the SHARP affiliate session at the 2015 South
Atlantic Modern Language Association (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?

The 87th annual SAMLA Convention will be held November 13-15, 2015, at
the Sheraton Imperial Hotel & Convention Center, located in Durham,
North Carolina. Proposers need not be members of SHARP to submit, but
panelists must be members of both SHARP and SAMLA in order to present.
By June 1, 2015, please email a 350-word abstract and short biography
(including contact information) to SHARP liaison Dr. Melissa Makala,
