Dear TEI-L,

(Apologies for cross-posting)

Registration is now open for the 2017 Society for Textual Scholarship
conference, *Textual Embodiments*, to be hosted by the Maryland Institute
for Technology in the Humanities (MITH) at the University of Maryland, from
May 31 – June 2.

The conference will concern a range of issues involving the materiality of
texts, including their physical, virtual, and performative manifestations
as objects that can decay or break down and can potentially be repaired and
sustained over time. It will also concern the processes of inclusion and
exclusion through which bodies of texts take shape in the form of editions,
archives, collections, and exhibition building, as well as the ethical
responsibilities faced by textual scholars, archivists, conservationists,
media archaeologists, digital resource creators, and cultural heritage
professionals engaging in these processes. The conference keynotes will be
delivered by Marisa Parham (“Haunting, Virtuality, and other Archival
Materialities”) and Susan Brown (“N-bodied Texts”).

Preceding the conference there will be five workshops related to its
themes, including a TEI workshop on "Publishing Editions on GitHub Pages
with the Text Encoding Initiative" taught by Hugh Cayless and Raffaele
Viglianti. The full program and logistical information can be found here:
