Call for papers: American Comparative Literature Association annual conference, University of Toronto, 4-7 April 2013 http://www.acla.org/acla2013/. Abstracts of papers are invited to Steven Totosy de Zepetnek by 31 December 2012 at firstname.lastname@example.org for the panel "New Media and Publishing in the Humanities." Debates about publishing in online journals and the publishing of books online instead of print or in print-on-demand suggest that both scholarship and the situation of academic publishers are changing rapidly. Papers can be overviews of the current situation of digital publishing in the humanities in the U.S. and world wide and about specific issues such as the relevance of the "impact factor" in the humanities, aspects of "digital humanities," digital preservation and archival, the valuation of scholarship published online with regard to tenure and promotion, the reading and teaching of scholarship in print versus online, the current move towards courseware online in open access, etc. Selected and peer-reviewed papers of the panel are planned to be published in the peer-reviewed online journal CLCWeb: Comparative Literature and Culture (Thomson Reuters ISI indexed).
