CFP for Joint Session with ACCUTE at Congress 2013

“On the Impact of New Technologies”
Michael E. Sinatra, Université de Montréal

This joint session of ACCUTE and CSDH/CSHN at Congress 2013 proposes to explore the impact of new technologies on teaching, researching, and publishing in the last five years. How does the advent of iPads and other tablets change the way one teaches ‘The Waste Land’ or Shakespeare’s Sonnets for instance now that there are multimedia Apps available of these texts? Should alternative forms of publishing such as blogs and tweets be more formally recognized by institutions/departments? Are science-based metrics more easily transferrable to humanities disciplines with various forms of electronic publications? Has the availability of Google’s 1,000,000 books really changed the way one does research? Delegates are invited to reflect on their own experience with new technologies in the classroom and outside. Papers can also address recent publishing experiments such as the open- review process @ Media Commons.

Please send proposals of 300 to 500 words to michael.eberle.sinatra@umontreal.ca, along with 100-word abstracts and 50-word bios. Materials should be received by November 1.
