The Society for the History of Authorship, Reading, and Publishing (SHARP) seeks participants for its affiliated society session at the January 4-7, 2018 Annual Meeting of the American Historical Association in Washington, D.C. Participants will present twenty minute papers related to the study of periodicals.

We welcome scholarly work on periodicals from all geographical areas and historical eras. Sample topics may include printing technology, circulation of content, subscription and other distribution methods, the relationship between periodicals and other forms of print culture, and the study of periodicals as material texts. All submissions generally related to the history of periodicals will be considered. We furthermore encourage applicants with creative or interdisciplinary methodologies to apply.

Those interested in participating should submit a paper title, a short abstract of the presentation (up to 300 words), and a brief CV of no more than 3 pages by Friday, April 21, 2017 to Amy Sopcak-Joseph at  Questions about affiliated society panels should be directed to the same.

Participants must be SHARP members at the time of the conference and are expected to register for the American Historical Association if selected.
