French explorers put New Orleans where it is because indigenous people showed them a bayou connecting Lake Pontchartrain to the Mississippi River, an intersection of sorts, granting quick access to the Gulf. Three hundred years later, new paths cross on our long-traversed landscape. Arising from the muck of both a distant and all-too-proximal history of social injustice is a community aware of economic, racial, and gender disparities, who celebrates in creative ways, mixes art with social activism, loves beautiful things, and always says hello. What better place to expand the discussion of book arts and foster an inclusive field that embraces both academia and non-academic programs and ideas that come from all races, classes, genders, and levels of education. We now invite you to the neutral ground of New Orleans, to our many stately university archives and our ground-up book arts collectives and printshops, to discuss the “Intersections” of present-day book arts: where we’ve been, where we’re going, and who’s paths are crossing now.
