Title: "The Openness of Writing in Print and Digital Discourses"

Abstract: Explores how the non-linear and non-hierarchical aspects of reading that have been identified as a unique dimension of digital texts, particularly hypertexts, have always been present in how readers have processed print texts. Draws on the growing emphasis in Shakespeare studies over the last 25 years on text variants and the concept of revision in Shakespeare to make this point.

Title: "' From My Own Imagination: Literary Forgery, Reflection, and the Work of Writing"
Author: Ron Fortune
Abstract: Uses instances of literary forgery to examine how forgers attempt to produce authentic variations on a literary writer's work and how their efforts can draw attention to features of an author's work and to the work of writing in general that can otherwise be underplayed in literary analysis.
