The Twenty-Ninth Print Networks Conference on the history of the British book trade will take place at the National Library of Wales on 19th-21st July 2011. En-suite accommodation will be provided on the attractive campus of Aberystwyth University overlooking Cardigan Bay. In addition to a full programme of papers, there will be a Conference dinner and a visit to the Roderic Bowen Library in Lampeter.
2011 marks the 400th anniversary of the Authorised Version of the Bible, and so "Religion and the Book Trade" has been chosen as the theme for the conference. The theme is broadly defined, and any papers relating to the production, distribution and reception of religious texts and images from the Middle Ages to the modern era will be considered. Papers should be of 30-40 minutes' duration. An abstract of the offered paper and a brief CV (no longer than one side of A4 in total) should be submitted by 31st January 2011
The Print Networks Conference also offers an annual fellowship to a scholar whose research falls within the parameters of the Conference’s brief, and who wishes to present a paper at the Conference. The fellowship covers the cost of attending the Conference and some assistance towards costs of travel. A summary of the research being undertaken accompanied by a letter of recommendation from a tutor or supervisor should be sent to the above address by 31st January 2011.
