        Subject: CFP: Renaissance Studies and New Technologies, RSA 2012

Renaissance Studies and New Technologies (RSA 2012, 22-24 March; 
Washington, D.C.)

For the past ten years, the Renaissance Society of America program has 
featured a number of sessions that document innovative ways in which 
computing technology is being incorporated into the scholarly activity 
of our community. At the 2012 RSA meeting (Washington, D.C., 22-24 March 
2012), several sessions will continue to follow this interest across 
several key projects, through a number of thematic touchstones, and in 
several emerging areas.

For these sessions, we seek proposals in the following general areas, 
and beyond:

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)

Proposals for papers, panels, demonstrations, and/or workshop 
presentations that focus on these issues and others are welcome.

** 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. **

For details of the RSA conference see 

Please send proposals before May 16 to bowen_at_utsc.utoronto.ca.
