A few months ago, Matt Gold posted a CFP to this list regarding the 2011 meeting of the Society for Textual Scholarship (which will be at Penn State on March 16-18; see http://mith.umd.edu/sts/html/callforpapers.php). Matt and I (mostly Matt) bounced around some ideas for a potential panel that the Digital Americanists could sponsor. These topics are:
— Digital Texts and the Spatial Turn
— Digital Textuality and Locative Media
— Social Media and the Digital Scholarly Edition
Is anyone interested in being a part of a panel for STS next year? Let me know at firstname.lastname@example.org if you’re interested and we can pull together an official Digital Americanists panel. I should note that the deadline for proposals is Oct. 31, so I’d need to hear from you by at least the end of September if you’re interested.
