CFP: Forgotten Books and Cultural Memory Conference and Events (2/1/2016; 5/26-28/2016)

Taipei tech logoAbstract deadlines for Forgotten Books and Cultural Memory, a conference to be held in Taipei on May 27–28, 2016, are coming soon. All abstracts submitted by January 4 will be considered by January 18. Abstracts may also be submitted by February, with notification by February 15.

Twenty-minute papers on any topic related to the theme are welcome. As the conference is in Taipei, Taiwan, the coordinators also particularly hope to organize several panels that address the forgetting and remembering of texts in interactions between the East and the West.

The Friday keynote speaker will be Dr. James Mussell of the University of Leeds (Science, Time and Space in the Late Victorian Periodical [2007] and The Nineteenth-Century Press in the Digital Age [2012]), and with expected discussions on the way that the mass-digitization of Victorian texts and periodicals impacts the way we understand and remember (or forget) books.

Find out more information about the conference, the CFP, the keynote speakers, companion cultural events, and archives in Taiwan (and Hong Kong—which is an hour away by plane) at https://forgottenbookstaipei.wordpress.com.

Companion cultural events will be held on May 26–28, including a visit to the National Palace Museum, the Suho Memorial Paper Museum, and a historic teahouse.
