        Subject: Digital Scholarship Seminar @ NUI Galway

We are pleased to announce the Spring 2016 series of Digital Scholarship Seminar at NUI Galway. 

Presentations in this series touch on topics as diverse as electronic poetry, intertextuality, digital ethics, Late Antique epic poetry, and quantitative approaches to book history. Full details of the schedule are available below.

The first event of the series takes place on Tuesday 2 February at 12pm in Hardiman Building Room 1001. Two speakers currently based at the University of Bergen, Prof. Scott Rettberg and Dr Anne Karhio, will present papers that explore, respectively, the development and outcomes of the Electronic Literature as a Model of Creativity and Innovation in Practice (ELMCIP) project, and the prominence of remediation over born-digital writing in the Irish electronic literature landscape. Lunch will be provided after what promises to be a stimulating session. As ever, all are welcome.
