Looking B(l)ack: Travel Symposium FULL programme (Zap Mama, Caryl Phillips, LKJ & more) this weekend.

A weekend of talks and performances dedicated to the notion of Black Travel, curated by Johny Pitts, TV host and author of the forthcoming publication ‘Afropean: Documenting Black Europe’.

Within the general notion of travelling, we will look to complicate an area overly hinged on white, masculine, heteronormative experiences, and celebrate the gaze of a diverse group of travelers who are often ignored.

Call for Applicants: The Bibliographical Society of America Fellowship Program

Each year, the Bibliographical Society of America funds a number of fellowships designed to promote bibliographical inquiry and research.  Supported projects may range chronologically from clay tablets and papyrus rolls to contemporary literary texts and born-digital materials. Topics relating to books and manuscripts in any field and of any period are eligible for consideration as long as they include analysis of the physical object – that is, the handwritten, printed, or other textual artifact – as historical evidence.

Applications are due on December 1.
