Together with MITH and the Society for Textual Scholarship (STS), AADHum is pleased to announce that registration is now open for the 2017 STS International Interdisciplinary Conference, Textual EmbodimentsThe conference will engage a range of issues involving the materiality of texts, including their physical, virtual, and performative manifestations as objects that can decay or break down and can potentially be repaired and sustained over time. It also concerns the processes of inclusion and exclusion through which bodies of texts take shape in the form of editions, archives, collections, and exhibition building, as well as the ethical responsibilities faced by textual scholars, archivists, conservationists, media archaeologists, digital resource creators, and cultural heritage professionals engaging in these processes.

While the Call for Papers is now closed, we certainly welcome your attendance at the conference, to be held from Wednesday, May 31—Friday, June 2, 2017. The full program schedule and list of speakers (subject to change) is available via the official conference website.
