Humanists might be interested in the following
Call for Papers. Usual apologies if you get
this more than once.

"Users of Scholarly Editions: Editorial Anticipations of
Reading, Studying and Consulting"
	
The 12th Annual Conference of the European Society for
Textual Scholarship (ESTS) will be held at the Centre
for Textual Studies, De Montfort University, Leicester
England 19-21 November 2015

The ESTS returns to Leicester where it was founded in 2001
to stage a major collective investigation into the state
and future of scholarly editing. Our focus is the needs
of users of scholarly editions and proposals for 20 minute
papers are invited on topics such as:

* Are users' needs changing?
* How does edition design shape use?
* Stability in print and digital
* Where are we in the study of mise en page?
* Facsimiles and scholarly editions
* Collaborative and social editing
* Editorial specialization in the digital age
* APIs and mashups versus anticipation
* The logic of annotation
* Is zero the best price point for editions?
* Readers versus users
* Can we assume a general reader'?
* Indexing and annotation versus search
* Editors, publishers and Open Access
* Is technology changing editing?
* Digital editions or digital archives?
* Are editions ever obsolete?
* Scholarly editions versus popular editions
* Any other topic related to the use or users of scholarly editions

Plenary Speaker (subject to confirmation) include:

Hans Walter Gabler (Munich University)
David Greetham (City University of New York)
Tim William Machan (Notre Dame University)
Gary Taylor (Florida State University)
Elaine Treharne (Stanford University)
Andrew Prescott (Glasgow University)

Hands-on workshops will be given on setting movable type,
letterpress printing, and getting started with XML.

Proposals for papers should be emailed to Prof Gabriel
Egan <gegan at dmu.ac.uk>

        From: Andrew Prescott <Andrew.Prescott at glasgow.ac.uk>
        Subject: Lecture: 'The Book'
        In-Reply-To: <20150211070313.1E21F8CE at digitalhumanities.org>

On 12 February 2015 at 5pm in the Yudowitz Seminar Room, Wolfson Medical Centre, University of Glasgow, the distinguished avant garde artist Eduardo Kaz from the Chicago Institute of Art will talk on ’The Book’. An inveterate bibliophile, artist and poet Eduardo Kac has sustained a passion for books that spans more than three decades. In this talk, in addition to discussing highlights of his personal collection, he will revisit the complex engagement with the book found in his own practice, including Cypher, a book that is a functional biotech lab, and Aromapoetry, the first book composed of real smells and meant to be read with the nose.
