Broadside Day 2023: Call for papers

Call for Papers: Broadside Day

Saturday 11th February 2023

One-day conference – In-person and online

Cecil Sharp House, 2 Regents Park Road, London NW1 7AY

For more than 20 years, the annual Broadside Day, organised jointly by the Traditional Song Forum and the EFDSS, has been the gathering place for people interested in street literature and cheap print – broadsides, chapbooks, prints, tracts, penny histories, woodcuts, and so on.

We would be pleased to receive submissions for 20-minute papers on any aspect of cheap print and street literature.

Please send a title, short abstract and short biography to Steve Roud (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) by Wednesday 7th December 2022.

Most of our papers are concerned with British and Ireland, or English-language print traditions elsewhere, but we always have one or two from further afield, so we would welcome submissions from other places.

Contributors might like to know that many previous Broadside Day papers have been published by The Ballad Partners.
