The 2022 conference of the Society for the History of Authorship, Reading and Publishing will take place in Amsterdam from 11 to 15 July 2022.

Please note the following:

SHARP 2022 will be a hybrid conference. Our goal is to host as many in-person events as we can, and to offer live-streamed sessions of parts of the program. However, if COVID-19 measures change and require us to organize an online program only, we will do so. We will follow the guidelines of the Dutch government.

All conference events will be scheduled between 8.00 AM and 21.00 PM local time.

Registration has opened!

The revised and final version of the program is now online.

We are pleased to announce four workshops on Monday 11 July and six excursions on Friday 15 July.
