Relations of the Book
From May 31st to June 1st, bibliographical and book studies researchers will gather remotely for the virtual Annual Conference of the Bibliographical Society of Canada. Our conference speakers this year will engage with the theme ‘Relations of the Book’ in connecting peoples, communities, cultures, and ways of knowing while forming inclusive visions for bibliographical and book studies. We are excited to share a program of speakers that engage with the theme, which includes presentations on the decolonization of texts and diverse bibliographical approaches to examine marginalized ‘book’ cultures.

The BSC-SbC Council has voted to cancel the 2020 Bibliographical and Book Studies in Canada Conference after consulting with our prospective presenters and assessing the many difficulties and stresses of mounting a virtual conference. We do not want to add to the many demands on our members at this difficult time. Meanwhile, we will explore options for running a virtual Annual General Meeting.
May you all find solace in a good book or two, stay well and take care of yourselves and your families.
Karen Smith, President
Bibliographical Society of Canada / La Société bibliographique du Canada
