MLA CFP: Session Sponsored by the Committee on Scholarly Editions

MLA 2012: Seattle, January 5-8, 2012

Reimagining the Scholarly Edition

Over the past 15 years new theories of editing have broadened the approaches available to editors of scholarly editions. Noteworthy amongst these are the changes brought about by editing for digital publication. New methods for digital scholarship (including but not limited to text encoding, mashups, datamining), forms of editions (such as Thematic Research Collections, Digital Archives, Digital Libraries), theories informing digital publication (including Versioning, Genetic Editing, Unediting), and tools (such as TILE, the Versioning Machine, Omeka) offer exciting supplements or alternatives to traditional notions of the scholarly edition.

Proposals are being accepted for this Roundtable (up to 8 presenters) that address the theme of digital scholary editons. Please email 300 word abstracts by March 10, 2011 to Susan Schreibman susan.schreibman [AT] All panel participants must be members of MLA before April 1, 2011.
