>Call for Papers: SHARP @ RSA 2008
>The Society for the History of Authorship, Reading & Publishing (SHARP)
>will sponsor several panels at the Renaissance Society of America's
>annual meeting in Chicago from 3-5 April 2008. Organized by Steven W.
>May, Anne Lake Prescott and Michael Ullyot, SHARP @ RSA links the RSA
>with scholars studying the creation, dissemination, and reception of
>script and print. Since 2001 we have organized 21 panels at RSA meetings.

>invite submissions that consider English and Continental books and
>manuscripts from 1350 to 1700 in relation to either of them:
> Abridgements, Epitomes, Indexes, and Examples
>Roger Ascham called abridgements 'a silie poore kinde of studie.' Why
>did people abridge texts, and how did people read them? Did
>abridgements--of the apocrypha, of John Foxe, of legal decisions and
>political history, &c.--serve or betray their sources and readers?
>Papers might also address the rhetoric of exemplarity in a range of
>practices (citing, persuading, condensing, indexing).
> Determining Renaissance Authorship
>What tests or techniques allow us to add or remove texts, or parts of
>texts, from an author's canon with confidence? What is the role of
>attribution in interpretation? What do we owe to printers and
>publishers? The organizers are particularly interested in non-dramatic
>Please send abstracts (150 words) and one-paragraph CVs to *each* of the
>three organizers: < [log in to unmask] > and <
>[log in to unmask] > and < [log in to unmask] > by
>*Friday, 11 May 2007* (this is earlier than RSA's own deadline).
>For more information on the Renaissance Society of America conference,
>see http://rsa.org/meetings/. All participants must be members of the
>RSA by August 2007 or they cannot be included in the programme.
