CFP: Renaissance Studies and New Technologies

Posted in Conferences, and Digital Humanities

Since 2001, the Renaissance Society of America annual meetings have featured panels on new technologies for scholarly research, publishing, and teaching. At the 2013 meeting (San Diego, 4-6 April 2013), several panels will cover these new and emerging projects and methodologies. We seek proposals in and beyond the following areas:

a) new technology and research (individual or group projects)
b) new technology and teaching (individual or group projects)
c) new technology and publication (e.g. from the vantage point of authors, traditional and non-traditional publishers)

We welcome proposals for papers, panels, demonstrations, and/or workshop presentations that focus on these issues and others. Your proposal should include a title, a 150-word abstract, and a one-paragraph CV.

Please send proposals before 15 June to

** Through the support of Iter, we are pleased to be able to offer
travel subventions on a competitive basis to graduate students who
present on these panels. Those wishing to be considered for a subvention
should indicate this in their abstract submission. **

NB: All participants must be members of the RSA by August 2013 or they cannot be included in the program.
