For those attending MLA in Los Angeles this week, I’ll be taking part in a “digital roundtable” organized by the ACH. Details below. Lots of smart people and interesting projects. The session abstract:
The Association for Computers and the Humanities (ACH) is pleased to sponsor an electronic roundtable and demo session featuring new and renewed work in media and digital literary studies. Projects, groups, and initiatives highlighted in this session build on the editorial and archival roots of humanities scholarship to offer new, explicitly methodological and interpretive contributions to the digital literary scene, or to intervene in established patterns of scholarly communication and pedagogical practice. Each presenter will offer a very brief introduction to his or her work, setting it in the context of digital humanities research and praxis, before we open the floor for simultaneous demos and casual conversations with attendees at eight computer stations.
A complete session description, including a list of presenters and individual project abstracts, is available on the ACH site. MLA’s session description (less info but with up-to-date annotations) is available to MLA members.
