Call for Papers:
Bringing Text Alive:
The Future of Scholarship, Pedagogy, and Electronic Publication

The Text Creation Partnership (TCP) project was founded at the University 
of Michigan in 1999 to reinvent scholarship by creating fully searchable 
texts of thousands of titles printed across three hundred years and two 
continents of English and American history.

TCP includes texts selected from three commercially produced page image 
collections, Early English Books Online (EEBO), available from ProQuest 
Information and Learning, Evans Early American Imprints (Evans), available 
from Newsbank-Readex and Eighteenth Century Collections Online (ECCO), 
available from Thomson-Gale.  Additionally, TCP's production has expanded 
to include centers at Oxford University, the University of Toronto, and 
the National Library of Wales.  TCP cooperates directly with over a dozen 
international scholarly projects devoted to subjects as wide ranging as 
historical linguistics, literary studies, bibliographic studies, and 
metadata integration.  Scholars and students alike, in these disciplines 
and many others have found often make the claim that resources like EEBO, 
Evans, ECCO, and the TCP have revolutionized their work and by making 
primary sources widely available, will "bring literature alive" (Thomas 
Pack, E-Content, Dec. 1999).  As the TCP project reaches the halfway mark 
of its original goals, it seems a good time to investigate how it brings 
literature in all disciplines to life in this exciting conference.

The conference invites papers from scholars, students (graduate and 
undergraduate), librarians, publishers, or other interested people in all 
disciplines to investigate topics such as (but not limited to):
* Changes in the landscape of scholarship and pedagogy introduced by 
electronic resources like EEBO, Evans, ECCO, and the TCP
* Examples of teaching with such resources
* Examples of doing research with such resources
* Use of related resources like ESTC or Early American Newspapers
* The changing nature of scholarly communication
* Electronic publication
* Digital library development.

The conference will be held September 14 - 17, 2006 in Ann Arbor, MI
Deadline for paper submissions is May 15, 2006
