About this event

Relations of the Book | Le livre au coeur des relations

From May 31st to June 1st, bibliographical and book studies researchers will gather remotely for the virtual Annual Conference of the Bibliographical Society of Canada. Our conference speakers this year will engage with the theme ‘Relations of the Book’ in connecting peoples, communities, cultures, and ways of knowing, while forming inclusive visions for bibliographical and book studies. We are excited to share a program of speakers that engage with the theme, which includes presentations on the decolonization of texts and diverse bibliographical approaches to examine marginalized ‘book’ cultures.

Unlike previous years, our annual conference will take place virtually and stretch over two days to accommodate members’ schedules coast to coast. We have five panel sessions of speakers along with our Annual General Members meeting, and a new Special Collections Interest Group event to create a forum for those interested in special collections to discuss issues of mutual interest. Everyone with an interest in the field is welcome, be they information professionals, professors, students or members of the book trade.

To address some of the inequities experienced by our colleagues and to be inclusive to communities that would like to engage with bibliographical and book studies, registration for the conference will be free to the public. Please register at our EventBrite page, and we look forward to seeing you virtually at the Bibliographical and Book Studies in Canada Conference this summer!

Du 31 mai au 1 juin, les chercheur-cheuse-s spécialisé-e-s en études du livre et en bibliographie se rassembleront à distance pour la Conférence annuelle virtuelle de la Société bibliographique du Canada. Cette année, les conférencier-e-s aborderont le thème de « Relations du livre » en traçant des liens entre des personnes, des cultures, et des modes de savoir, tout en formant des visions inclusives pour les études du livre et de la bibliographie. Nous sommes ravis de partager un programme de conférencier-e-s qui s'engageront avec le thème, qui comprendra des présentations à propos de la décolonisation des textes et les différentes méthodes bibliographiques pour examiner les cultures du « livre » marginalisées.

Contrairement aux années précédentes, notre conférence aura lieu virtuellement au cours de trois journées pour accommoder les horaires des membres d’une côte à l’autre. Nous avons cinq réunions de conférencier-e-s, ainsi que notre Réunion générale, et un évènement organisé par un nouvel évènement du Groupe d’intérêt des collections spéciales pour donner à ceux et celles qui s’intéressent aux collections spéciales un forum pour discuter des questions d’intérêt mutuel. Tous ceux et celles qui sont intéressé-e-s par ce domaine sont les invité-e-s, qu’ils ou elles soient des professionnel-le-s de l’informations, des professeur-e-s, des étudiant-e-s ou des membres du commerce du livre.

Pour lutter contre les iniquités vécues par nos collègues et afin d’être plus inclusifs envers les communautés qui voudraient s’engager dans les études du livre et de la bibliographie, l’inscription à la conférence sera libre au public. S’il vous plait, veuillez vous inscrire sur notre site EventBrite. Nous avons hâte à vous voir virtuellement à la Conférence des Études du livre et de la bibliographie au Canada cet été!
