Closing the Blog

Jyrki Hakapää

This blog was created a bit more than a year ago to precede Book Culture from Below – The Eighteenth Annual SHARP Conference. The conference took place in Helsinki, 17-20 August 2010. For organizers of the conference, it was a splendid occasion, filled with interesting presentations and lively discussions.

The conference webpage is still available for viewing. The program of the conference and the abstracts of the presentations are presented at Scientific Program page. Reviews and articles about the conference are collected to the Press page. Pictures of the conference are presented at the conference flickr photostream. Finally, tweets related to the conference have been saved here (#sharp10) and here (#sharp2010). Three events of the conference were also webcasted, but they were not recorded for later viewing.

But now it is time to close the blog: thank you for following Book History Up North and Book Culture from Below. The editors are very happy that so many readers found this blog. Book history is a growing scientific field in Nordic countries, and we are looking forward to see how the current discussions and findings evolve to new publications and meetings.
