Bringing Text Alive: The Future of Scholarship, Pedagogy, and Electronic
Announces that registration is now available at
This exciting conference will be addressing many issues relating to the
future of electronic resources in the humanities. With the help of the
Delmas Foundation, Newsbank-Readex, ProQuest Information and Learning,
and Thomson-Gale, the Text Creation Partnership (TCP) project at the
University of Michigan has put together an exciting program of over 30
speakers in Ann Arbor on September 15 & 16, 2006.
The conference will cover a wide array of issues relating to both
scholars and librarians including:
1. New paradigms in scholarship:
How do scholars create new electronic environments in which to do their
research and teaching?
Do e-texts necessitate the creation of virtual research/learning
How do such environments change "traditional" practices?
How should scholars harness these changes to best fulfill their needs?
2. Collaboration between libraries and academic departments:
What opportunities are available with electronic technology?
What kinds of collaborations exist currently?
How have these enhanced research and pedagogical opportunities?
3. Practical changes in scholarship and teaching:
What have other scholars done in their classes and scholarship?
How is it easier to teach undergraduates with e-resources? Is it easier
to do research with e-resources?
Please join us for this exciting discussion. More information about the
conference is available at http://www.lib.umich.edu/tcp/conference and
