CFP: New Tech + Renaissance Studies @ RSA2016
A CFP for RSA 2016, 31 March – 2 April, Boston MA
Since 2001, the Renaissance Society of America annual meetings have featured panels on the applications of new technology in scholarly research, publishing, and teaching sponsored by Iter. Panels at the 2016 meeting (31 March – 2 April, Boston) will continue to explore new and emerging projects and methodologies — this year also featuring virtual presentations and interactions at and in advance of the conference in Boston, in partnership with Iter Community.
We welcome proposals for papers, panels, and or poster / demonstration / workshop presentations on new technologies and their impact on research, teaching, publishing, and beyond, in the context of Renaissance Studies. Examples of the many areas considered by members of our community can be found in the list of papers presented at the RSA since 2001 and in those papers published thus far under the heading of New Technologies and Renaissance Studies.
Please send proposals before 15 April 2015. Your proposal should include a title, a 150-word abstract, and a one-paragraph biographical CV, as well as an indication of whether you would consider or prefer a virtual presentation. Through the generous support of Iter for these panels, we are pleased to be able to offer travel subventions on a competitive basis to graduate students who present on these panels in Boston; those wishing to be considered for a subvention should they indicate this in their abstract submission.
