I dropped my registration for the 2003 SHARP conference in the mail today. SHARP (the Society for the History of Authorship, Reading, and Publishing) is a great organization and a great conference. They publish a very interesting annual, Book History, and the range of paper topics at their annual conferences is amazing, as you can see by the programs for the 2001 and 2002 meetings. I’ll be giving a paper entitled “John Wesley’s Magazine Publishing Career, 1778-1791,” and with any luck, I’ll take a trip to the Huntingdon Library.
Maybe I’ll even take a “research” trip to the beach.
