Byzantine Book Epigrams and Online Text Collections (deadline 15 November) Dear colleagues, A friendly reminder that the deadline for submitting an abstract to partake in the 'Growing Corpora' (https://www.dbbe2020.ugent.be/) conference (Ghent, 24-25 June 2020) is approaching. We encourage interested participants to send us their proposals by Friday 15 November. Please do not hesitate to specify whether you want to be considered for financial support: https://www.dbbe2020.ugent.be/practicalities/#Financialsupport. Best wishes, Ilse De Vos on behalf of the DBBE team (https://www.dbbe.ugent.be/pages/team) ----- Call for papers GROWING CORPORA Byzantine Book Epigrams and Online Text Collections ------------------------------------------------------------------------ Ghent, 24-25 June 2020 Since 2010, the Database of Byzantine Book Epigrams team (that is: we) have been growing an online corpus of metrical paratexts, several of which were previously unpublished or unknown altogether, and made them freely available to the scholarly community (that is: you). A new version of our database (https://www.dbbe.ugent.be was launched in June 2019. Exactly one year later, we are organising a two-day conference. Together with anyone interested in this particular genre of Byzantine poetry, we want to celebrate and reflect on what we have achieved so far and look ahead at what is -- hopefully! -- yet to come. Moreover, we want to stimulate communication and collaboration with other projects that are growing online corpora of texts. You can partake in two different types of sessions. In our demo sessions you can present your project and discuss your experiences in growing your online corpus (10-15 minutes). We are confident this will lead to a lively discussion on challenges we all face, such as data presentation, interoperability, and sustainability. In our thematic sessions you can present your research on Byzantine book epigrams (20 minutes). Possible topics include: editing book epigrams; theoretical reflections on the concept of book epigrams and other metrical paratexts; book epigrams as a way to study the history of manuscripts; visual aspects of book epigrams; literary texts that function (or may have functioned) as book epigrams; metre and language of book epigrams; book epigrams in languages other than Greek. We especially welcome contributions inspired by the /Database of Byzantine Book Epigrams./ Confirmed speakers (https://www.dbbe2020.ugent.be/programme/) include Georgi Parpulov (University of Birmingham) and Andreas Rhoby (Austrian Academy of Sciences). Interested? Send us an abstract (up to 300 words, PDF) by 15 November 2019 (email@example.com, subject "Growing Corpora -- abstract") and we will get back to you early December. Note that we want our conference to reflect who we are as a team (https://www.dbbe.ugent.be/pages/team): welcoming and inclusive. Costs will be kept to a minimum and we are working hard to secure funding to support anyone for whom traveling might not be evident, including early career or independent scholars and carers of young children.

We encourage multidisciplinary engagement on the power of books in bridging social, ethnic, political, economic, and epistemological divides more broadly, while forming fresh visions for bibliographical and book studies. To explore the conference theme, proposals for papers and panels are invited in the following subject areas: 1. the decolonization and anti-racism of bibliographical and book studies to redress gaps in representation, approach and/or genre; 2. the evolution of publishing within the diverse minority linguistic, ethnic, and cultural groups in Canada and the challenges faced by researchers who seek to document this output; 3. explorations of the many diverse approaches to book culture through historical, literary, cultural, sociological, technological, and bibliographical studies; 4. confronting the histories of diverse communities of readers, writers, printers, and publishers; 5. the responsibility of libraries, archives, and museums to diverse communities in the preservation and access of texts beyond the book and traditional knowledge formats; 6. the role played by Canadian small presses and campus literary journals in giving voice to previously unheard voices and as a learning venue for future writers and publishers; and 7. investigations of social media and digital texts to bridge studies of publishing, readerships, and authorship across bibliographical and book studies. In recognition of our gathering in London, proposals that address aspects of the history, literature and book culture of the Anishinaabek, Haudenosaunee, Lūnaapéewak, Attawandaron (Neutral) peoples, and African Canadians, or consider the wider Congress theme of colonialism and anti-black racism, are particularly encouraged. Please submit a 250-word abstract proposal and brief biography in English or in French (including your full name, professional designation, institutional affiliation or place) no later than 10 January 2020 to proposals@bsc- sbc.ca. [For the version in French, see the attached. Unfortunately it came through sufficiently unreadable that editing it into shape would have exhausted too much of my morning.
