The Book Conference serves as an inclusive forum for examining the past, current and future role of the book. The Call for Papers is now accepting abstracts for presentations addressing books, publishing, and libraries through one of the following themes: "Publishing Practices: Past, Present, and Future," "Books and Libraries," and "Reading, Writing, Literacy, and Learning."
The conversation on books, publishing, and libraries proceeds from recognition that although the book is an old medium of expression, it embodies half a millenniumís experience of recording knowledge. Its pervasive influence continues to shape newer forms of information technology, while at the same time providing a reference point for innovation. The conference, along with its companion peer-reviewed scholarly journal and book imprint (both coordinated and published by Common Ground Publishing), seek to explore these themes.
Abstracts are accepted in monthly rounds. Accepted abstracts are eligible for presentation at the conference, as well as for submission into the peer-reviewed journal.
