Dear MEI-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 musical texts), concerning 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. The full program and logistical information can be found here:
