I will be at the Modern Language Association convention in Vancouver in January. I look forward to discussing my new role as SHARP liaison to the MLA. In the following years, I will be in charge of organizing SHARP’s guaranteed and joint sessions, as well as the social events at the MLA.
On Thursday 8 January, I will be chairing this session:
Into the Digital Future: Amazon, Apple, and Google Make Book History
1. "The Book Trade from the Perspective of Its Businesses: Recent Developments," Daniel Raff, Univ. of Pennsylvania
2. "Amazon et Alia: Self-Publishing and the New Intermediaries," Timothy Laquintano, Lafayette Coll.
3. "Cocreating Fictional Worlds Online: Hugh Howey and Kindle Publishing," Carrie Sickmann Han, Indiana Univ., Bloomington
Responding: Greg Barnhisel, Duquesne Univ.

I also look forward to seeing friends and colleagues at the University of British Columbia and Simon Fraser University!
