This call for papers goes out to scholars who study unfinished and unpublished encyclopedias, compiled c. 1600–2000. We encourage scholars of all disciplines, nationalities, and at all career stages to submit paper proposals regarding unfinished/unpublished encyclopedic projects of both general and specialized character. Participants are especially encouraged to reflect upon methodological possibilities and challenges associated with their sources. Abstracts should not exceed 250 words and be sent to linn.holmberg@idehist.su.se and simonsen@cgs.aau.dk. The deadline for submission is 1 March 2018. It is our ambition to later edit and publish the symposium papers in an anthology.
