Event description

Description

UNB Libraries will host the second New Brunswick Bibliography Symposium on Wednesday, March 27, 2019, at the University of New Brunswick, Fredericton. Following on the success of the 2018 edition, the symposium will bring together scholars, librarians, archivists, and others interested in New Brunswick bibliography and book history, and in the preservation of the published heritage of our province.

The keynote address at this event will be delivered by Tony Tremblay, Professor of English and Canada Research Chair in New Brunswick Studies at St. Thomas University. Dr. Tremblay has published widely in the fields of literary modernism and Canadian literature. He is founding editor of the multidisciplinary, bilingual Journal of New Brunswick Studies/Revue d’études sur le Nouveau-Brunswick and general editor of the New Brunswick Literary Encyclopedia. His recent work includes Fred Cogswell: The Many-Dimensioned Self (2012), The New Brunswick Literature Curriculum in English (2017), and New Brunswick at the Crossroads: Literary Ferment and Social Change in the East (2017). His latest book, The Fiddlehead Moment: Pioneering an Alternative Canadian Modernism in New Brunswick, is forthcoming from McGill-Queen’s in Fall 2019. His current SSHRC-supported research looks at how New Brunswick is represented in narrative, both external and internal.

The symposium will offer a varied program of speakers on current and prospective research in New Brunswick bibliography and book history. Download the 2019 Symposium program.

Registration is required and a fee of $40 (free to speakers) is being charged to help defray costs. Lunch will be provided.
