CFP: Renaissance Studies and New Technologies
Renaissance Society of America Annual Conference
Miami, 22-24 March 2007

For the past six 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
2007 RSA meeting (Miami, 22-24 March 2007), 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:

Call for abstracts on the relationship between poetry and the cyber-age.

Poets, professors, and lovers of poetry in general repeatedly assert that the
book as an aesthetic object has lasting value. But are we kidding ourselves?
 With a readership increasingly reliant on the computer, and a new generation
of students who have never known a time when the Internet was more than a
click away, is it only a matter of time before poetry is primarily an element of
cyberspace? Is this good or bad? With more than a hundred fonts, point
sizes, untold programs and graphic elements, how will the function of the computer
affect the actual forms of poetry?
