CFP: Renaissance Studies and New Technologies
Renaissance Society of America Annual Conference
Chicago, 3-5 April 2008

For the past seven 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 2008 RSA
meeting (Chicago, 3-5 April 2008), 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

    a) new technology and research (individual or group projects)
    b) new technology and teaching (individual or group projects)
    c) new technology and publication (e.g. from the vantage point
       of authors, traditional and non-traditional publishers)

Proposals for papers, panels, demonstrations, and/or workshop presentations
that focus on these issues and others are welcome.

Please send proposals before May 15 to
