Subject: 	CFP for RSA, Miami, 2007: EEBO and Early Modern Studies

CALL FOR PAPERS: EEBO and Early Modern Studies

Since 1998, Early English Books Online (EEBO) has given scholars and 
students 'instant access' to over 125,000 sixteenth- and 
seventeenth-century English books. Books in research libraries across 
the world can now be read at any time and in any place; moreover, it 
reaches readers who, because of their status or their geography, have 
traditionally found it difficult to access these rare book collections. 
By bringing early printed books into any library, into the academic 
office, into the classroom, even into the home, EEBO has changed how 
scholars and students study these texts.

But how much impact has EEBO had on research and on teaching? What have 
scholars and students gained? What have they lost? How does EEBO fit 
with the renewed attention to the materiality of the early modern text 
and the increasing interest in the history of early printing and 
publishing? Just how scholarly are the technologies and structures 
underlying EEBO? What kind of relationship should there be between EEBO 
and academia? How should EEBO develop?

Following on from a successful international conference on EEBO held in 
Bath, UK, in September 2005, we invite proposals from scholars engaged 
in any area of early modern studies (e.g., literature, philosophy, 
political science, history, history of science, of medicine, etc.) for 
papers 10-15 minutes in length on the effect of EEBO on scholarship 
outlining personal techniques or on methods and experiences of using 
EEBO as a teaching tool.

Please send proposals (max. 250 words), along with a brief biography and 
any audio-visual requirements, to Tracey Hill (
