Long abstracts (up to 1000 words) due May 15, 2018 (original deadline extended)  


  • We invite article-length contributions to a volume on digital pedagogy in early modern studies, a new collection within the New Technologies in Medieval and Renaissance Studies (NTMRS) series.
  • We are particularly interested in papers that attend to the study of book history and print culture, but we welcome work on a variety of scholarly and educational interests, including editorial practices, translation, programming, social knowledge creation, accessibility, labor and ethics, and programmatic or institutional concerns.  Papers may address methodology, praxis, assignment design and assessment, and issues of pedagogical theory and practice. We welcome papers that address teaching English as well as continental literature, including Italian, French, and Spanish. We are also planning a digital companion to support the print volume, so we encourage papers that include as appendices sample syllabi, prompts, and online resources.
  • Submissions may either be long abstracts (app. 1000 words), or may be partial or complete first drafts (5000-6000 words) of proposed submissions. We anticipate the volume will be published in summer 2019.
  • Abstracts due: May 15, 2018
  • Abstract Length: ~1000 words
  • Full papers due: late summer 2018 (5000-6000 words)
  • Please submit abstracts or drafts as an attachment to asilva@york.cuny.edu and sschofi4@huron.uwo.ca.
