London Seminar in Digital Text and Scholarship

By Claire L H Warwick, on 14 March 2010

UCLDH is delighted to be co-sponsor of the London Seminar in Digital Text and Scholarship, with KCL’s CCH.

We would like to invite proposals for seminars in the 2010-11 academic year, October through April.

The London Seminar in Digital Text & Scholarship focuses on the ways in which the digital medium remakes the relationship of readers, writers, scholars, technical practitioners and designers to the manuscript and printed book. Its discussions are intended to inform public debate and policy as well as to stimulate research and provide a broad forum in which to present its results. Although the forum is primarily for those working in textual and literary studies, history of the book, humanities computing and related fields, its mandate is to address and involve an audience of non-specialists. Wherever possible the issues it raises are meant to engage all those who are interested in a digital future for the book.

The Seminar is held once per month in Stewart House, adjacent to Senate House, Bloomsbury, London, normally on a Thursday. A seminar usually consists of an hour’s presentation followed by another hour of discussion. Refreshments (wine & water) are provided. The seminar leader is taken out to dinner afterwards at the Seminar’s expense. Unfortunately the Seminar cannot fund any major expenses, such as transatlantic travel.

An e-mail note sent to both Convenors will suffice. Please specify a working title, an abstract and a choice of date. If multiple dates are possible, please specify your preference(s).
