Bibliographical and Book Studies in Canada: “Book: Re-imagined and Re-born”
The third decade of the twenty-first century has ushered in unprecedented and challenging events. The Truth and Reconciliation Commission and the Black Lives Matters movement, alongside escalating climate emergencies, have brought home the urgent need for collective action in support of racial and climate justice. Against this backdrop, our conference theme invites you to explore and reflect critically on the past, present, and future of the book. We invite submissions that pertain, but are not limited, to:
Revisions in bibliography and book history as reflections of decoloniality, anti-racism, and social justice
Traditions, innovations, and responses to societal challenges in the practice of bibliography, book history, and special collections curation
Books and print media as vehicles for inclusion, participation, and belonging
Material and digital cultures of the book in relation to climate change, sustainability, and post-industrial technology-driven society
Book creation, production, consumption, and collecting in personal, social, and institutional contexts
Human interactions with books and print media and their diversity
Partnering and collaboration beyond the book: galleries, libraries, archives and museums in partnership with custodians of aural, visual and other forms of knowledge
