Culture (RSA panel)

Digitizing Renaissance Material Culture, a panel for the Renaissance
Society of American conference in Los Angeles, March 19-21, 2009

While digital media have enabled new and innovative access to
Renaissance texts, these same media hold perhaps even more potential for
investigating and representing the material cultures of the period. This
panel of papers will build on recent scholarship on materiality by
bringing together innovative research on the theory and praxis of
digitizing Renaissance material culture. Topics may address theory
and/or practice in the application of digital technology to the study of
material culture, including but not limited to art, architecture,
cartography, the anatomical and cultural body, collections,
antiquarianism and early archaeology, dramaturgy, arts and crafts,
printed and manuscript materials. This panel will be sponsored by the
New Technologies in Medieval and Renaissance Studies series.

Please submit title, brief abstract, and statement of affiliation to by May 20, 2008.

Accepted papers may also be submitted to be considered for a collection
of essays in this series on "Digitizing Early Material Culture,
Antiquity to 1700" to be edited by Brent Nelson (University of
Saskatchewan) and Melissa Terras (University College London).
