By the Book7

POSTPONED UNTIL 2021

Reconfiguring the Reader

Taking place:

Villa Finaly, Florence

Postponement of By the Book7
In the light of the coronavirus outbreak in northern Italy, we have taken the decision to postpone the By the Book conference until 2021. The situation remains uncertain and we have decided that it is prudent to move on the conference now rather than wait until nearer the conference date. Other conferences at the Villa have also been cancelled and we learnt yesterday that the Bologna Book Fair has been delayed. There is the risk that the virus will spread to neighbouring countries and we are conscious that delegates may have travel issues with either inbound or outbound quarantine. Also the health advice at national level is being updated continuously.
Papers submitted this year will be carried over to next year’s programme, and we will issue a new Call for Papers this autumn. We will announce shortly the dates for By the Book7 in 2021.

 

By the Book7 brings together industry professionals, educators, and scholars to examine key issues around readership and publishing, as well as to discuss the developing field of publishing studies. Presentations will take different forms to accommodate the range of academic, professional, educational, and independent voices that make By the Book, now in its seventh year, such a unique conference. By the Book7 has the theme ´Reconfiguring the Reader´. In our screen world reading culture is changing by the day, as new practices - digital and analogue - spring up and proliferate.  In previous years themes have included Building Audiences (2016), Curation (2017) and Power (2019).
