Editing, Reading, Studying
a symposium on the affordances of the (im)material book
University of Queensland, 4 October 2013
Tim Dolin, Professor of Literary Studies, Curtin University
Paul Eggert, ARC Professorial Fellow, University of New South Wales Canberra
This one-day symposium will investigate the acts of editing, studying, and reading works from the past. Speakers will consider the influence of computer technology on the way we perform such acts, explore the possibilities of new ways of knowing in digital environments, or examine the endurance of old ways of knowing in print formats.
The convenors (Dr Roger Osborne and Professor David Carter) invite proposals for 20 minute papers, panels or seminars that address these issues. Email abstracts with a short bio to firstname.lastname@example.org by 30 April 2013.
The symposium is a free event, but numbers are limited. The symposium will be followed by a dinner locally. A range of accommodation options are available. For more details and updated information, follow this blog, or email the convenors at the above address.
