CALL FOR SEMINARS 2011-12

London Seminar in Digital Text and Scholarship

Department of Digital Humanities, King's College London Centre for Digital Humanities, University College London

The London Seminar in Digital Text and Scholarship invites seminars for the 2011-12 academic year, October through May. Seminars may be on any aspect of digital textual studies, whether literary, linguistic, philological, lexicographic, historical, cultural or otherwise. Seminars are held in the facilities of the Institute of English Studies, Institute of Advanced Study, University of London, Thursday evenings once per month.

The London Seminar focuses on the ways in which the digital medium remakes the relationship of readers, writers, scholars, technical practitioners and designers to the manuscript and printed book. Its
discussions are intended to inform public debate and policy as well as to stimulate research and provide a broad forum in which to present its results. Although the forum is primarily for those working in textual and literary studies, history of the book, humanities computing and related fields, its mandate is to address and involve an audience of non-specialists. Wherever possible the issues it raises are meant to engage all those who are interested in a digital future for the book.

Please contact the co-convenor, Professor Willard McCarty (willard.mccarty[at]kcl.ac.uk), to discuss the possibilities.
