CFP: New Technologies and Renaissance Studies (5/15/08; RSA 2009)

by Jessica C. Murphy

CFP: New Technologies and Renaissance Studies Renaissance Society of America Annual Conference
Los Angeles, 19-21 March 2009

For the past eight years, the RSA program has featured a number of sessions that document innovative ways in which computing technology is being incorporated into the scholarly activity of our community. At the 2009 RSA meeting, several sessions will continue 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, at their points of intersection with new technologies:

a) research (individual or group projects)
b) teaching (individual or group projects)
c) 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. Please send proposals before May 15 to
