    Shakespeare and Information Technology

    This session will explore the ways in which Shakespeare connects with
    various forms of information technology. A number of scholarly pursuits,
    including book and print histories, performance and film studies, and
    multimedia/digitization projects are currently examining the ways in which
    Shakespeare's plays and poetry migrate across various media. How have these
    forms of media influenced or been influenced by the bard? What role has
    this technology played in the creation and maintenance of Shakespeare's
    place in our culture? The panel hopes to highlight the role that
    information technology has played in the transmission of Shakespeare's work
    and what that work has to offer our changing information landscape.

    Possible topics might include:
         * Digitizing Shakespeare
         * Shakespeare on the World Wide Web
         * Renaissance printing practices
         * Performing Shakespeare
         * The Early Modern book trade
         * Pop Goes the Bard - Shakespeare and Pop Culture
         * Virtual Shakespeare
         * Shakespeare and multimedia teaching practices
         * Filmic Shakespeare
         * Shakespearean portraiture
    As per ACCUTE and COCH/COSH guidelines:

    Proposals should be 300-500 words in length, and should clearly indicate
    the originality of scholarly significance of the proposed paper, the line
