The Society for the History of Authorship, Reading and Publishing proposes to sponsor a panel at the annual American Studies
Association meeting, Nov. 14-17 2002 in Houston.
We seek papers for a session on "The Culture of Print in
Wartime America." Papers could focus on any war, and include issues like: censorship, publications and the display of loyalty and patriotism, the tension between government sponsored and private publications, competing stories, publications intended for the armed forces, the effects of wartime shortages on book and periodical publication, antiwar publications and their readers, and reading and reading institutions (e.g., libraries, schools) during wartime.
If you are working on a paper that covers any subject addressing "The
Culture of Print in Wartime America," you are encouraged to send a
200-word description (and one-page CV with appropriate contact information) to both Wayne A. Wiegand and Ellen Gruber Garvey by JANUARY 5, 2002. Proposals received by that date will be considered for inclusion in the three-paper panel we will then propose to ASA for its consideration at the end of the month.
BY JANUARY 5, 2002, please forward one copy of your proposal to both of the addresses below.
