Bibliographical Society of America: NEW SCHOLARS PROGRAM

Each year the Bibliographical Society of America invites three scholars in the early stages of their careers to present twenty-minute papers on their current, unpublished research in the field of bibliography as members of a panel at the annual meeting of the Society, which takes places in New York City in late January. The New Scholars Program seeks to promote the work of scholars who are new to the field of bibliography, broadly defined to include any research that deals with the creation, production, publication, distribution, reception, transmission, and subsequent history of texts as material objects. Papers of New Scholars are published in the December issue of the Papers of the Bibliographical Society of America as part of the proceedings of the annual meeting.

Junior (i.e., untenured) faculty and advanced graduate students are eligible, as are professional librarians, members of the book trade, and book collectors, who are at the beginnings of their careers. New Scholars may nominate themselves or be nominated by others. Candidates should submit a letter of application, an abstract of not more than 250 words, and a curriculum vitae. For submissions to be considered for the following January, materials should be received by July 31. Please address and send applications (preferably via email) to:

New Scholars Program, Bibliographical Society of America, P.O. Box 1537, Lenox Hill Station, New York, NY 10021
email: bsa@bibsocamer.org

New Scholars selected for the panel receive a subvention of $500 toward the cost of attendance at the annual meeting and a complimentary one-year membership in the Bibliographical Society of America. For further information on the Society, see http://www.bibsocamer.org. Inquiries regarding the program may be directed to Gregory A. Pass, Chair, New Scholars Program, at passga@slu.edu
