The Canadian Association for the Study of Book Culture/l'Association canadienne pour l'etude de l'histoire du livre brings together a broad range of scholars in the humanities and social science disciplines who share an interest in the studies of book and print cultures. Its mandate is to encourage multidisciplinary engagement among those who study written communication in all its various forms and processes. In celebration of Canada at 150, we have a wonderful schedule planned over the two day CASBC-ACEHL conference. On the first day, May 30th, we are joining forces with the Bibliographical Society of Canada - la Societe bibliographique du Canada (BSC-SbC) for a joint day on the theme: "Bound by Three Oceans: Reading, Writing, Printing and Publishing in Canada since Confederation". Selected papers from this joint day will be published in a special theme issue of the Papers of the BSC. We will also be hosting a Canadian publishers' round table on the future of Canadian publishing titled: " The Lovely Treachery of Canadian Book Publishing: Current Circumstances, Future Directions". On the second day of our conference, May 31st, we have selected the complementary theme: "Beyond Three Oceans: Canada In the World - Book and Print Culture Unbound" to highlight how Canadian book and print cultures have influenced, been influenced by or have paralleled reading, writing, printing and publishing practices outside the physical boundaries of this country.
