For this session at Kalamazoo, we invite scholars and editors engaged in digital text projects to discuss new work in any of the following areas: editorial theory and practice in digital environments; intellectual, technical, and institutional challenges posed by born-digital textual projects (along with proposed solutions); and interpretive work on medieval literature that is made possible by the availability of digital text corpora.

CALL FOR PAPERS
We have previously had panels on the following topics and invite new ideas all the time.
The Arkansas Philological Association invites papers for its forty-first annual conference—"For the Love of Language." Papers exploring the role and relevance of philology, form, and craft in the language arts are particularly encouraged, though papers on related or alternative critical, creative, or pedagogical approaches to language, literature, creative writing, and rhetorical analysis are welcome.
By the end of the eighteenth-century, thanks to literary histories such as Samuel Johnson's Lives of the Poets and Thomas Warton's The History of English Poetry, along with the beginning of literary criticism, the framework of the eighteenth-century canon we still use today had already been created. Writers who were lauded by Johnson and Warton as the writers of the age are for the most part still anthologized and taught in undergraduate courses in today's universities. However, an entire oeuvre of white male authors of the dominant political party—such as Elkanah Settle, Colley Cibber, and Warton himself—are relatively unexplored even though they exerted influence over literary culture as City Poet and Poets Laureate, respectively.
The College of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences at Lincoln University in Pennsylvania is requesting articles for its annual publication, The Lincoln Humanities Journal.

These border constructs may be literary, political, social, cultural, economic, ethical, or aesthetic.
