    *New Technologies and Renaissance Studies*

    Special Sessions at the 2003 Meeting of the Renaissance Society of America
    Friday and Saturday, March 28-29, 2003
    Colony Hotel Toronto, Giovanni Room

    For the third consecutive year, the RSA program will feature a number of
    sessions that document innovative ways in which computing technology is
    being incorporated into the scholarly activity of our community. This
    year's contributions follow this interest across several key projects
    (among them the History E-Book Project, Iter, and the Records of Early
    English Drama), through a number of thematic touchstones (scholarly
    editing, publishing, preservation, and access), and in several emerging
    areas of inquiry (active reading, atypical subjects for hypertextual
    display, and beyond). This year's sessions are outlined below.

    We invite you to join us and, also, to be in touch with the organisers
    (before April 30, 2003) if you are interested in being involved in similar
    sessions at the RSA 2004 meeting, March 25-27 in New York.
