Call for Papers: Early Book Society


Out of Bounds: Mobility, Movement and Use of Manuscripts and Printed
Books, 1350-1550

Twelfth Biennial Conference of the Early Book Society in collaboration
with the Twelfth York Manuscripts Conference

in honour of Professor Toshiyuki Takamiya
3-7 July 2011

Centre for Medieval Studies
University of York

The Early Book Society will hold its twelfth biennial conference in
collaboration with the York Manuscripts Conference, at the Centre for
Medieval Studies, University of York, from the 3rd to the 7th of July
2011. The theme of this year's conference will be Out of Bounds:
Mobility, Movement and Use of Manuscripts and Printed Books, 1350-1550.
This theme may be interpreted literally or figuratively: papers might
consider unbound or rebound MSS and books, or MSS and books without
bindings (rolls), or marginalia beyond the boundaries of the text, or
the ways in which such boundaries might be created, or even MSS and
books that travel from their place of origin. Secondary threads running
through the conference will be related to Prof. Takamiya's manuscripts
or Nicholas Love (the conference includes a visit to Mount Grace
Priory). Please submit proposals for 20-minute papers relating to the
conference themes either to Martha Driver or Linne Mooney by 1 December
2010. Proposals sent via email should be copied to both
(LRM3@york.ac.uk and MDriver@pace.edu) or by post to Martha:

Prof Martha Driver
English Department
Pace University
41 Park Row, 15th floor
New York, NY 10038

Please include your name, title and affiliation, the proposed title of
your paper, a brief abstract of your paper, and indication of any
electronic aids requested (data projector, overhead, and/or slide
