Call for proposals
London Seminar in Digital Text and Scholarship

The London Seminar in Digital Text and Scholarship, held monthly at 
Senate House, Bloomsbury, 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, digital humanities 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 and 
the book in a digital future.

Proposals for seminars are invited for the 2012-13 academic year, from 
October through April. These should take the form of a title and 
abstract, though preliminary expressions of interest are most welcome. 
Normally seminars are held on Thursday evenings, 17.30-19.30. Seminars 
are (with the seminar leader's permission) recorded and put online, by 
the School for Advanced Study, as podcasts. See 
for those available to date.

The convenors of the London Seminar are Professor Willard McCarty (KCL) 
and Professor Claire Warwick (UCL). The Seminar is sponsored by the 
Department of Digital Humanities, King's College London, the University 
College London Centre for Digital Humanities and the Institute of 
English Studies, University of London.

Please send all enquiries to willard.mccarty at kcl.ac.uk.
