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.
Unlike previous years, our annual conference will take place virtually and stretch over two days to accommodate members’ schedules coast to coast. We have five panel sessions of speakers along with our Annual General Members meeting, and a new Special Collections Interest Group event to create a forum for those interested in special collections to discuss issues of mutual interest. Everyone with an interest in the field is welcome, be they information professionals, professionals, professors, students or members of the book trade.
To address some of the inequities experienced by our colleagues and to be inclusive to communities that would like to engage with bibliographical and book studies, registration for the conference will be free to the public. Please register at our EventBrite page, and we look forward to seeing you virtually at the Bibliographical and Book Studies in Canada Conference this summer!
Date: May 31, 2021 and June 1, 2021
