Textual cultures
Digital editing and textuality
The production and editing of "minority" texts
Theoretical and practical intersections between textual scholarship
and book history

Papers should be no more than 20 minutes in length. Panels should

well as the name, e-mail address, and institutional affiliation of
the participant. Panel proposals, including proposals for roundtables
and workshops, should include a session title, the name of a
designated contact person for the session, the names, e-mail
addresses, and institutional addresses and affiliations of each
person involved in the session, and a one- or two-page abstract of
