Sixteenth Century Studies and New Technologies
(SCSC Fort Worth Conference, 27-30 October 2011)

Since 2001, William Bowen and Ray Siemens have organized conference 
sessions that document innovative ways in which computing technology is 
being incorporated into the scholarly activity of our community. They 
also co-edit a publication series entitled New Technologies in Medieval 
and Renaissance Studies (MRTS/Iter), which is about to launch its 3rd 
volume of essays.

At the 2011 SCSC meeting (27-30 October), we propose 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 SCSC conference see 

Please send proposals before April 20 to bowen_at_utsc.utoronto.ca.

Dear All,

Following the success of the 2010 meeting in Ghent, the European Social
Science History Conference has created a new "Spatial and Digital
History" network. The aim of the network is to showcase and advance
academic research that uses digital and spatial approaches to gain a
better understanding of the past. These include fields such as: Digital
History, History and Computing, Historical GIS, Spatial History and
Historical Geography.

The 2012 meeting will take place in Glasgow, Scotland from 11-14th April
2012. We welcome papers on any of the above topics. A full CFP is
available from: http://www.iisg.nl/esshc/index.php. The deadline for the
submission of papers and sessions is 1st May 2011. Enquiries can be made
to Ian Gregory (I.Gregory at lancaster.ac.uk).

Best wishes,
