CFP - Association for Documentary Editing

The Association for Documentary Editing invites proposals for papers,
roundtables, and/or panels for the organization's 34th annual meeting in
Charlottesville, Virginia, 9-11 August 2012. See

The 2012 program theme is "Documentary Democracy," an appropriate topic
for a meeting in Thomas Jefferson's hometown. The theme can be applied
to the program in two different ways. First, it can be argued that
documents are the essential foundation of modern democratic societies,
not just the few famous founding documents but a broad, very diverse
body of historical, literary, philosophical, and other documents and
works. Second, the theme concerns the opportunities and challenges
presented by the increasing democratization and globalization of
documentary knowledge in the expanding digital universe, particularly in
regard to access, diversity, technology, and scholarship.

Prospective presenters may focus on either aspect of the theme or both
together. In any case the Program Committee hopes that presenters will
interpret our theme as widely as possible. All ideas are welcome. We
also encourage submissions from solo editors or projects in the early
stages of organization.

Abstracts of a maximum of 500 words are due by 1 March 2012. In a
separate paragraph state your name, address, telephone number, email,
project, organizational, and/or institutional affiliation, if any, and
what audio-visual technology you might need. Please send abstracts
within the body of an email and as an attached Word document to: .
