The Digital Textual Studies: Past, Present and Future Symposium
Planning Committee is issuing a call for posters that highlight
digital humanities projects, tools or techniques or work in progress.
We also encourage any college or university digital humanities
program, center or group to present a poster that overviews their
program. Posters may include a demonstration, traditional printed
poster, or a combination of both. Wireless internet access will be
available at the poster venue.

Short abstracts (250-500 words) should be submitted to the conference
website,, before June 30, 2006. The proposals
will be reviewed by the planning committee and successful applicants
will be notified by July 31, 2006. The poster session will take place
on the evening of October 20, 2006.

Digital Textual Studies: Past, Present and Future, will assess the
current state and future prospects of digital textual studies, with
an underlying emphasis on how digital media might change our ways of
knowing or experiencing textuality. The symposium will feature an
opening address by Jerome McGann, and presentations by Morris Eaves,
Julia Flanders, Matthew Kirschenbaum, Kenneth Price, Peter Robinson,
Peter Shillingsburg and Martha Nell Smith. For registration details
