Forgive this non-MLA post (cross-posting on top of it!) but I was thinking of proposing something for SHARP 2019 in Amherst, MA. If anyone has interest in doing a panel on Japanese book history, I\’d love to hear from you. Here is the very broad CFP, entitled Indigeneity, Nationhood, and Migrations of the Book:
I was thinking of a 20th-century and 21st-century focus for my own contribution, on the labor involved in reprinting and digitizing Japanese literary heritage (something I\’m presenting on at the upcoming AJLS and hope to develop further). I\’d be happy to brainstorm other themes too though. If you prefer email I can be reached at email@example.com.
