Call for papers: Textual Manipulation

Bibliographical Society of Australia and New Zealand

Adelaide, Thursday 3rd – Friday 4th November

The conference theme of Textual Manipulation will allow papers to explore, within the discipline of physical and textual bibliography, both past practices and future trends - in particular how the manipulation of electronic texts may change the landscape of bibliographical studies over the coming decades.
Contributors may also wish to explore broader concepts including:

 Textual transmission – translation / editing / anthologising / rewriting / parody / plagiarism

 Censored/censured texts

 Medium of the message - cultural, political, religious, economic, aesthetic, psychological impacts

 Reception studies / reader response / how printing, publishing and graphic design affect reading

 (Re)shaping the book - text as art / textual art / artist books / novelty texts

Presentations of 20-25 minutes will be followed by discussion (maximum 30 min per speaker)

Postgraduate students ‘works in progress’ papers are encouraged & travel bursaries are available

Enquiries and offers for papers, with 250 word abstracts and a short biographical note, by 31 March 2011 to:

Cheryl Hoskin,
