2013 Sponsorship Opportunities

Please consider serving as a sponsor of this year's SHARP conference in Philadelphia.

By participating in SHARP 2013, you will reach an international audience of more than 300 participants whose scholarly work ranges widely across periods, places, and subjects but who are all united by a keen interest in the history of written communication. The conference theme, "Geographies of the Book," has already resulted in an overwhelming number of program proposals. With over eighty universities and colleges as well as several world-renowned archives and libraries in the Philadelphia metropolitan area, we also have a strong local audience for the conference. More information about the conference can be found on this website; use the sidebar at left to navigate its sections.

Our major sponsorship opportunities are listed on this page. You may also choose to place an advertisement in our conference program, participate in our book exhibit, or arrange to have promotional material included in registrants' tote bags.
