Digital Textual Studies Symposium: October 19-21 at Texas A&M

Amy Earhart from the Texas A&M English department forwarded this announcement to me. I will certainly be attending, probably blogging about it and perhaps even presenting there as well!

Digital Textual Studies: Past, Present and Future

Texas A&M University, College Station, TX, October 19-21, 2006 (Thursday through Saturday)

Digital Textual Studies: Past, Present and Future, will assess the current state and future prospects of digital textual studies, with an underlying emphasis on how digital media might change our ways of knowing or experiencing textuality. The symposium will feature an opening address by Jerome McGann, and presentations by Morris Eaves, Julia Flanders, Matthew Kirschenbaum, Kenneth Price, Peter Robinson, Peter Shillingsburg and Martha Nell Smith. For registration details see the symposim website, digitaltext.tamu.edu.

The Digital Textual Studies: Past, Present and Future Symposium Planning Committee is issuing a call for posters that highlight digital humanities projects, tools or techniques or work in progress. We also encourage any college or university digital humanities program, center or group to present a poster that overviews their program. Posters may include a demonstration, traditional printed poster, or a combination of both. Wireless internet access will be available at the poster venue.

Short abstracts (250-500 words) should be submitted to the conference website, digitaltext.tamu.edu, before June 30, 2006. The proposals will be reviewed by the planning committee and successful applicants will be notified by July 31, 2006. The poster session will take place on the evening of October 20, 2006.
