ZIBF yodeedzera zvinyogwa zvekuumba nhaurwa dzeIndaba

Guwerere remabhuku rinodaidzira hwaro hwezvinyogwa zvichaumba nhaurwa dzezvemabhuku neupfumi izvo zvichaitwa kupera kwaChikunguru zvichipinda mukutanga kwaNyamavhuvhu. Zvinyorwa zvinotarisirwa kunge zviri zvinechekuita nekuti mabhuku aiitise vakaanyora, vanoatsikisa, nevanoatengesa mari inoraramisa mhuri nekuunganidza upfumi. Misoro yenyayadzichange dzichikurukurwa munhaurwa dzichiturwa paIndaba yegore rino inosanganisira zvinotevera pazasi apo mutsamba yakabva kunasachigaro weBhodhi yeZimbabwe International Book Fair Association (ZIBFA)rinova sangano rinofambisa hurongwa hweguwerere remabhuku muZimbabwe. Dear Stakeholder We would appreciate the circulation of this Call for Abstracts to your colleagues. ZIBF INDABA 2017 CALL FOR ABSTRACTS On behalf of the Executive Board of The Zimbabwe International Book Fair Association, I wish to advise that the approved Theme for 2017 is – “Making the Book Pay!”. We are, therefore, pleased to announce that the dates for The Zimbabwe International Book Fair have been set for 31 July – 5 August 2017 while The Indaba Conference is slated for 31 July and 1 August. This Theme was selected from several possibilities that were recommended by participants through the 2016 Indaba Evaluation Forms. The ZIBFA Executive leadership concurred with the suggested theme, “Making the Book Pay” as it is topical and adequately speaks to today’s national, regional and international development agendas listed below: · Zimbabwe Agenda for Sustainable Socio-Economic Transformation (Zim Asset): Towards an Empowered Society and a Growing Economy; · Africa Agenda 2063: The Africa We Want; and · The UN 2030 SDGs: Transforming Our World. The ‘PAY’ in wealth creation connotes eradication of poverty through reading. It also enables the following: · Inculcating the reading habit and sustaining reading skill in young people, hence it PAYS to Read so that we maintain high literacy levels; · Reading enables people to realize their aspirations and successes through education and to advance themselves; · Increasing food security and nutrition; · Eradicating diseases i.e. HIV and Aids and other communicable diseases; · Improving child immortality; · Increasing revenue inflows for the Book Industry players thereby creating or generating wealth from, author/publisher/bookseller perspective; · Alleviating poverty; · Contributing towards employment creation; · Providing equitable access to information for all; and · Reading and access to information addresses the development agendas. Making the Book Pay! was therefore deliberately made broad and/or not confined to any particular sector so that it allows varying viewpoints from many presenters on the above-listed possibilities. Contributors to the 2017 Indaba are therefore urged to come up with ideas that will benefit all participants in the book value chain. The creative economy includes, among other players, the book industry that has in its book value chain: authors who are the creators of the works; publishers whose activities are to exploit intellectual property; the illustrators and designers; photographers; advertisers; booksellers or distributors; librarians who gather, process and provide wide access to reading and information materials; and the users who include school children, academics, adults, researchers, educational and training institutions, religious institutions, private and public business enterprises, universities, colleges, research institutions, and government and non-government institutions. The book industry provides income to all participants in the book value chain and earns revenue to the government in the form of taxes. SUBMISSION OF ABSTRACTS Abstracts of not more than 500 words word-processed in Times New Roman script with 1.15 line spacing should be submitted by 10 April 2017 by email to events@zibfa.org.zw with a copy to zibfa@yahoo.com. The abstracts will be reviewed by experts and authors of selected abstracts will be notified by 30 April 2017. Presenters should submit the full papers and power-point presentations of the full paper by 31 May 2017. Power-point presentations must summarise the full paper in bullet form and should enable presenters to speak to the paper within the allotted time. Please note that the topics provided below are meant to be guidelines for research areas although they may be used as research topics. Presenters are encouraged to submit their own innovative topics that address the suggested areas and which speak to the given Theme and sub-themes. ZIBF 2017 THEME: MAKING THE BOOK PAY!
