PAMLA 2016: Making, Distributing, Using and Teaching Electronic Editions of Medieval and Early Modern Texts (abstract due 6/10/16; conference 11-13 Nov. 2016)

deadline for submissions: 
June 10, 2016
full name / name of organization: 
Pacific Ancient and Modern Language Association (PAMLA)

This session seeks papers about electronic editions of medieval and early modern texts in both scholarship and teaching. How can such texts be best executed and then distributed? What information and features should they provide for readers? Do they replace hands-on study of manuscripts, or do they provoke more manuscript tourism? And how can such texts be used in research and also to bring textual studies into the medieval or early modern classroom? 

To submit a paper proposal for this session, or one of the many other approved PAMLA sessions, please go to: http://www.pamla.org/2016/topic-areas

Proposals are due by Friday, June 10.

The PAMLA conference 2016 will be held over the 11-13 November 2016 weekend at the Westin Pasadena, CA.
