Extended Deadline for Living Well with Books

Living Well with Books is interdisciplinary, transhistorical, and transnational conference organized by the Centre for Material Texts, University of Bristol on 5-7 September 2018. The conference aims to explore how books have affected and continue to affect our daily lives and well-being. How we have lived with books in the past, how do we live with them in the present, how we might live with them better in the future, and how might we help others do the same?

We’re extending the deadline for Living Well with Books for a little while longer. If you’re working on any aspect of the relationship between books and people in the present or in the past, consider submitting a proposal to arts-books@bristol.ac.uk by 10 June 2018.

Topics that papers might address include:

  • Living alongside books
  • Books in our hands
  • Books, health, and wellbeing
  • Books and communities
  • Getting hold of books
  • Living badly with books

  • Professor Miha Kovač, Department of Library and Information Science and Book Studies at the University of Ljubljana
  • Professor Abigail Williams, Faculty of English, University of Oxford
