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.
