New Technologies and Renaissance Studies,
edited by William R. Bowen and Raymond G. Siemems, is now available in 
print (http://acmrs.org/publications/mrts/renstu.html) and online
(http://www.itergateway.org/mrts.htm#ntmrs). The volume is the first in
a new series entitled, New Technologies in Medieval and Renaissance Studies.

As Willard McCarty so rightly notes in the opening article to this
volume, “wherever one looks, computing seems to be at or near the
epicentres of disturbance.” Most certainly, near the forefront of any
examination of disciplinary pursuits in the academy today, among the
many and very important issues being addressed one will inevitably nd
the role of computing and its integration into, and perhaps
revolutionizing of, central methodological approaches. Published by Iter
and the Arizona Center for Medieval and Renaissance Studies, the series
New Technologies in Medieval and Renaissance Studies addresses this
context from both broad and narrow perspectives, with anticipated
discussions rooted in literature, art history, musicology, culture, and
more in the medieval and Renaissance periods. Articles in this volume
cover such topics as the digital reconstruction and re-presentation of
archival materials, the adaptation of text encoding systems to address
the concerns of manuscript studies, the pedagogical opportunities
presented by the electronic medium, and well beyond.
