London Seminar in Digital Text and Scholarship

The London Seminar in Digital Text & Scholarship focuses on the ways in which the digital medium remakes the relationship of readers, writers, scholars, technical practitioners and designers to the manuscript and printed book. Its discussions are intended to inform public debate and policy as well as to stimulate research and provide a broad forum in which to present its results. Although the forum is primarily for those working in textual and literary studies, history of the book, humanities computing and related fields, its mandate is to address and involve an audience of non-specialists. Wherever possible the issues it raises are meant to engage all those who are interested in a digital future for the book.

The Seminar is sponsored by the Department of Digital Humanities, King's College London, the University College London Centre for Digital Humanities and the Institute of English Studies, University of London. Co-convenors: Professor Willard McCarty (King's College London) and Professor Andrew Prescott (King's College London).
