Call for Panelists for the World Congress of Jewish Studies (Summer 2017) -- Books in Motion
We are interested in putting together a proposal for one or two sessions at the World Congress of Jewish Studies in August 2017 focused on the circulation of early printed Jewish books in the early modern and modern periods. We are most interested in papers that deal with the Jewish book trade, the circulation of Jewish books among Jews and Christians, book acquisition by collectors and libraries, networks of intellectual exchange, and the ways in which books as material objects shed light on cultural and religious history. As the project directors of Footprints: Jewish Books through Time and Place (footprints.ccnmtl.columbia.edu), designed to trace the movement of individual copies of early Jewish printed books, we are interested in generating a discussion about the intersection between the research that is now being conducted in the field of Jewish studies on the history of the book and the goals of our database. As we work from the premise that every book copy has its own personal, social, and cultural history and that this database can provide the data necessary for researchers interested in examining the social and cultural dynamics at work in disseminating, reading, selling, buying, gifting, and amassing collections of Jewish books, we are interested in papers that touch on these subjects. Please send a title and 350 word abstract of your paper by October 14th to firstname.lastname@example.org.
