The 22nd annual conference of the Society for the History of Authorship, Reading & Publishing (SHARP) will be held in Antwerp, Wednesday 17 September through Sunday 21 September 2014. SHARP 2014 takes place primarily at the University of Antwerp, in the old centre of the city, but includes events at different venues of book historical interest as well as preconference workshops/tours and excursions. The central theme is ‘Religions of the Book’, but in conformity with tradition the conference also welcomes other book historical papers, sessions and round tables. Sponsors include the Plantin-Moretus Museum, the Hendrik Conscience Library, the Flemish House of Literature, the Antwerp Bibliophile Society, the University of Ghent, KBC Banking & Insurance, the Flemish Book Historical Society and the University of Antwerp.
Be quick, the deadline for submissions (both individual proposals and sessions) is 30 November 2013.
