CFP: Third panelist sought for SHARP 2016



From Trade Manual to Treatise and back again: the Transformation of Technical Literature, 1600-1800
We are seeking a third member for a panel proposal for SHARP’s (the Society for the History of Authorship, Reading and Publishing) 2016 conference in Paris, 18-22 July 2016, “Languages of the Book/Les langues du livre” http://www.sharpweb.org/conferences/2016/call-for-papers/
This panel will explore how books of secrets, trade manuals, pamphlets, and other technical publications were transformed by time, translation, and transportation to scientific literature, and how the reverse also happened. Topics include, but are not limited to, any scientific or technical text whose initial publication was modest or important, but was transformed by later editions, adaptations, and translations. Of particular interest are texts that gained or lost importance by translation to another country, continent, or context. There is no geographic limit.
Deadline: November 29, 2015 (panel submission due November 30, 2015)
