White Rose Book History Seminar

16 September 2004, 1.00–5.00pm

University of Sheffield

The White Rose Book History Seminar invites proposals for papers to be given at its third seminar to be held on Thursday 16 September 2004.

The White Rose Book History Seminar is a thrice-yearly interdisciplinary seminar series based, and run jointly, at the Universities of Leeds, York and Sheffield. Seminars cover all periods and all aspects of book history, encouraging dialogue and debate among specialists from a wide range of scholarly disciplines, including English and other literatures, history, history of science, art history, social sciences, and education.

The seminar is devoted not only to exploring new directions in book history research, but also to considering the ways in which book history is bringing new perspectives to bear on existing research problems in a range of disciplines. Papers are therefore invited on any area of book history and relating to any period. Papers may adopt either a theoretical manner or utilise practical examples of book history research. Researchers from any period–Anglo-Saxon to post-modern– are welcome to contribute.

Proposals are invited for papers of 20 minutes in length. Abstracts of no more than 200 words should be sent by Monday 30 August to Dr Hamish Mathison, [email protected].
