When the South Atlantic Modern Language Association met in Durham, North Carolina on November 13-15, 2015, the Society for the History of Authorship, Reading, and Publishing (SHARP) coordinated three sessions at the conference. Thanks to Paul Donnelly and Melissa Makala, the BASIRA Project was presented at the Friday poster session and on the Saturday evening program. (For the poster session, our examples from the database were “pages” made of foam-core and bound in codex format.) Given that the conference theme was “In Concert: Literature and the Other Arts,” we had hoped that BASIRA’s exploration of visual art would make connections with literature scholars in attendance. Based on many interesting conversations we had, the inter-disciplinary appeal of BASIRA was affirmed. Thanks to everyone who talked with us; we hope to continue to hear from you.
