Abstract:
The Digital Americanist Society seeks speakers who will articulate a clear, interpretive intervention that digital scholarship has made (or could make) in their areas of study. Our goal will not be to describe digital projects, but instead to demonstrate how those projects advance, supplement, or disrupt the scholarly conversations of our respective literary subfields. We encourage “non-DH” scholars whose work has benefited from DH scholarship to contribute. Submit abstracts to Ryan Cordell, Northeastern University, rccordell@gmail.com, by September 30, 2012.
