The 20th annual SHARP conference
The Battle for Books
26-29 June 2012
Trinity College Dublin, Ireland
REGISTRATION IS NOW OPEN
DRAFT PROGRAMME NOW AVAILABLE
In a city like Dublin, which has been home to Swift, Wilde and Joyce one naturally thinks of ‘The Battle for Books’ in terms of censorship, constraint and restraint, but this major international conference will consider the theme as broadly as possible.
More than 180 papers will be presented at the conference. Keynote speakers include Professor Ann Blair (Harvard), Professor Germaine Warkentin (Toronoo), Professor Nicholas Cronk (Oxford), Professor Claire Connolly (Cardiff), Professor James Raven (Essex), and Sir Peter Stothard, editor of the TLS.
This conference will bring the leading practitioners in the field of 'book history' from around the world to Dublin. If you are interested in books, and the cultural, social and economic conditions in which books are produced and consumed, you should not miss this conference.
Registration is now open on the official conference website: http://sharp2012.org/
Those who register to attend before 2 May can avail of the discounted 'early-bird' rate.
