The Text Creation Partnership is delighted to once again be hosting a conference September 16-17, 2013, at the University of Oxford. We are currently seeking submissions related to this year’s theme, “Early Modern Texts: Digital Methods and Methodologies.” From the conference website:
The Early English Books Online Text Creation Partnership, based at the Bodleian Library in Oxford, invites proposals for conference papers. All papers that focus on early modern texts will be considered, but we particularly encourage proposals on digital research and editing methods and methodologies in early modern studies. Possible topics could include:
- Editing philosophies and practicalities
- Digital citation
- Hidden or developing research methodologies in the Humanities
- Bridging traditional and digital methods
- Comparative studies of different digital resources
- Research based on EEBO-TCP
- Digital tools to support early modern research
- Approaches to teaching methodology
The deadline for submissions is Friday 5 April 2013.
The conference is intended as an opportunity to explore the current state of early modern textual studies and editing, and to consider possibilities for the future. There will be a particular focus on developing potential for collaborative work through scheduled networking sessions. Proposals including project demonstrations or ideas are encouraged, as are submissions from postgraduate and early career researchers.
Please send proposals of no more than 300 words, together with a brief biography (100 words maximum), to email@example.com. Acceptances will be notified by Monday 29 April 2013.

We hope to see you in Oxford in September!
