This panel seeks to gather the experience of scholars of English Romanticism to discuss the interpretive pathways that digital texts offer, including new methods, questions, and results that are possible with digital texts that would have been difficult if not impossible before their introduction. We are also interested in examples of how the availability of digital archives have shaped what a scholar may investigate, and what he or she may conclude that is different from what would have been likely in a world where only physical texts exist.

As we continue to develop various digital technologies and media we need to continue to theorize what it means to do and think the humanities in light of these developments. How is the humanities assemblage changed in the face of digital media and in what ways has our engagement with the classical fields of study augmented? What changes in Philosophy, Art, Poetry, Literary Theory and so on when it interfaces with the digital? Especially, how are the humanities approached in a world of so-called digital natives? Do the humanities have a necessarily digital future?

SEMINAR PAPERS FOR THE FOLLOWING SEMINAR AT NEMLA CONVENTION 2015:

Philip K. Dick: Literary and Cinematic Visions for the Twenty-First Century

This seminar seeks papers that engage with Philip K. Dick's work. More specifically I would like the seminar to engage with any aspect of Dick's work, cinematic adaptations of his work, or work that was inspired by his vision—social, economic, religious, political—which has become so relevant in the twenty-first century and possibly beyond. Let us reflect on the immanence and historicity of the work and its adaptations while exploring it alongside contemporary issues and developments.
