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 six excursions on Friday 15 July.

Sharp 2020 was postponed to 2022. Click here for more info.

For those who are presenting at the Conference in Amsterdam July 11-15 : please don't forget to register in the conftool before May 30th. @SHARPorgNews https://www.conftool.pro/sharp2022/index.php?page=login

It's time for us to start thinking about a @sharpamsterdam playlist. Who are your favourite Dutch musicians? Reply with your song recommendations!

Here are some of our own recommendations. 👇

Finally booked my flight to @sharpamsterdam, looking forward to meeting so many #SHARPFriday folks in person after all these years.
