In what ways do opportunities made possible by digital environments inform editorial choices for both screen and page? How has archival research been affected by digital tools? What new literary, hermeneutic, and scholarly projects are now possible? To what degree do new approaches and methods of editing texts challenge existing narratives of criticism and literary history? We invite abstracts of no more than 500 words on these subjects as well as the following broad topics:
Literary publishing and branding
Canons and canonicity
