CFP: Reading wide, writing wide in the Digital Age: perspectives on transliteratures

Call for papers

Reading wide, writing wide in the Digital Age: perspectives on  transliteratures
Complutense University of Madrid

22nd -23rd October 2015

Organizer: Miriam Llamas & Amelia Sanz (LEETHY Group)

The launching of Google Books and of Google Earth in 2004 could be considered a symbolical landmark in the configuration of memories and localization in space, a kind of milestone.  Is there a time before and a time after 2004? Should we be getting ready for a change in literary reading and writing? Certainly, these days, we are witnessing an unprecedented acceleration of the circulation of products and materials, of people, texts and memories, while the national and global imaginaries coexist, fight and produce literatures. Commonplaces are repeated about contemporary literatures, new readers, globalization, the Internet etc., but, in fact, we do not find enough contrasted experiences and studies that support many of these assertions.

It is time we ask whether interrelations on a global scale in digital environments have altered, on the one hand, the patterns of production and distribution of writing, of circulation and consumption of reading, and in that case, in what way.  But, on the other hand, it is time to ask if these modalities of circulation are creating new narratives and a new effect of globalization.  So we are considering global digital circulation as a factual process but also as an imaginary storytelling.

In fact, as cinema radically transformed writers’ and readers’ literary imaginary at the beginning of the 20th century, the Internet is definitively modifying rituals of readings, formulas of production, narratives in the 21st century.

We believe that it is necessary to verify what marks in the literary writing and reading could be considered symptoms of all these shifting reading patterns, writing strategies and imaginaries. We can explore the possibility that the conceptual metaphor which is being used to understand the literary fact through its genealogy is shifting to the transit and journey of literatures and readings. If the question “where does it come from?” has been used to shape personal and cultural identities, and therefore to build national literary discourses, nowadays it may be replaced by or intersect with the questions “where is it going?” and How is it going across?. This circulating conception of what we can call “transliteratures”, a well-founded and broad-based perspective in the literary field nowadays, should be put to the test in the digital domain.

And this is the point: is digital circulation modifying literary imaginaries? We will try to ask to the following questions:

– Given the extension and multiplication of digital media, the moving and widening vision of the world, is it really modifying local literary production, located imaginaries?

– About the configuration of a cultural memory through new digital archives, we can raise the question: how does it influence the connective structures of culture and literature in particular?

– Is the circulation of materials on the Web giving birth to new communities of readers-writers, with other modes of reading? Is it announcing the way readers from the new generation are going to read?

We intend to gather experts and experiences coming from the world of cyberculture and literary criticism, with distant and distinct approaches, with the aim that, on the basis of an analysis of production cases and literary reading in paper or electronic support, they should offer answers about what is currently happening as much to the traditional and digital editorial world, as well as to the academic world of teaching and research. That means cross-boarding trans and hyper.

 

Deadlines:

Submission of abstracts: April 15, 2015.

Notification of selected papers: May-June, 2015.

 

Submissions should include the submitter’s name, institutional address, e-mail address, short CV, and a 250-word abstract (in English) of the proposed 20 min. paper.

Call for Papers – the Joint Conference of the Society for Textual Scholarship and the Association for Documentary Editing

 

CONVERGENCES AND DIVERGENCES

University of Nebraska-Lincoln, June 17-20, 2015

Program Organizers: Andrew Jewell, Amanda Gailey, Elizabeth Lorang, Kenneth M. Price

Deadline for Proposals: January 30, 2015

Keynote Speaker: Jerome McGann

The Society for Textual Scholarship and Association for Documentary Editing announce a historic joint conference of the two organizations to be held at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, an international hub for digital editing. Home to the Center for Digital Research in the Humanities and numerous print and digital editing projects, UNL is located in the capital of Nebraska and offers opportunities for exploring the history and geography of the Great Plains.

This special joint conference will bring together two organizations with a history and future of interests in studying and editing literary and historical materials. We invite proposals on any aspect of documentary editing and textual scholarship, including (but not restricted to) the discovery, editing, annotation, analysis, teaching, and publication of texts from many disciplines, including history, literature, classics, musicology, philosophy, paleography, codicology, linguistics, art history, the history of science, library and information science, film studies, gender and sexuality studies, ethnic studies, and more. We invite proposals from students.

Because this is a unique joint meeting of the two organizations, we are especially interested in submissions on the theme of convergences and divergences—papers that examine how different editorial theories and methodologies at times intersect and at others veer apart. What are the histories and possible futures of the two related but distinct editorial traditions of ADE and STS? We see this conference as an opportunity for reflection about editorial traditions and the prospects for textual studies and encourage proposals that explore these topics.

Submissions may take the following forms:

  1. Papers. Papers should be no more than 20 minutes in length, making a significant original contribution to scholarship.
  2. Panels. Panels may consist of either three associated papers or four to six roundtable speakers. Roundtables should address topics of broad interest and scope, with the goal of fostering lively debate with audience participation.
  3. Posters. Posters showcase projects or present focused topics in a setting that features personal interaction and informal conversation. Posters on works-in-progress are encouraged.

To propose a paper, panel, or poster, send an abstract of no more than 500 words to the program committee via the form available at http://go.unl.edu/e8x8 no later than January 30, 2015. The proposal should clearly indicate the format and whether technological support will be required. Please include the name, email address, and institutional affiliations for all participants.

Opportunity for New Editors: Institute for Editing Historical Documents

With funding from the National Historical Publications and Records Commission, the ADE offers an additional opportunity in Lincoln in conjunction with the conference: the Institute for Editing Historical Documents, to be held June 13-17 for individuals new to the practice of historical documentary editing.  Experienced documentary editors provide instruction in the principles of their field and insight into the realities of their work. For more information, contact Bob Karachuk, Education Director, Association for Documentary Editing, at ade-educationdir@documentaryediting.org.

Economic sustainability of digital editions: job in The Hague

The Huygens Institute for the History of the Netherlands has a vacancy for a Research Fellow (Early Stage Researcher), in Long-term business models in dissemination and publishing (1.0 fte)

The fellow will work within the EU-supported Marie Curie Initial Training Network DiXiT (http://dixit.uni-koeln.de/) involved in the creation and publication of digital scholarly editions. The appointment is for 26 months and the position is to be filled as soon as possible. The researcher will be based at the Hague (the Netherlands). EU regulations to promote international mobility require eligible candidates not to have worked or lived in the Netherlands for more than 12 months over the last three years.


The researcher will investigate the competing demands faced by digital scholarly editions: on the one hand the need for financial sustainability w.r.t. exploitation and maintenance, and on the other hand the general interest of the scholarly community in open access. Digital editions are usually created based on project funding, limited in time. After funding runs out, they need to be hosted, administered and maintained into an indefinite future. Is there a conceivable business model for the digital scholarly edition that will help the edition pay for its own maintenance while maintaining open access?

The research project includes secondments in Italy and the UK.

Position requirements
– Master in a humanities field (e.g. Literary Studies, History) and a proven interest in business administration, or a master in business administration and a proven interest in the humanities
– Active interest in digital publication
– Affinity with information technology
– Fluent in English
– Some knowledge of Dutch is an advantage but not a requirement; learning Dutch is encouraged
– Willing to reach out to and collaborate with national and international colleagues in related research disciplines
– See also the eligibility requirements at http://dixit.uni-koeln.de/fellows.html, the vacancy for Early Stage Researcher 10.

For the complete job description and instructions on how to apply, see https://www.huygens.knaw.nl/wp-content/uploads/2015/01/Research-Fellow-Long-term-business-models-2015-1.pdf.

(Please circulate widely)

Digital Densities Symposium 27th March 2014

Digital Densities: examining relations between material cultures and digital data

Call For Papers

27th March 2015, The University of Melbourne

Hosted by the Digital Humanities Incubator (DHI) in the School of Culture and Communication, University of Melbourne.

 

The ‘material turn’ in Humanities research has seen a celebration of the physicality of things and a revaluing of the weight of experience, including in the case of digital data. In his key text Mechanisms, Matthew Kirschenbaum identifies a need to reassess theories of electronic textuality in light of “the material matrix governing writing and inscription in all forms: erasure, variability, repeatability and survivability” (2008, xii). In the academy, this material turn co-exists with an increasing utilization of digital resources and digital methodologies to preserve and disseminate the findings of our research. These shifts are accompanied by divergent affective responses that include an interest in tactile sensations and a mourning of the loss of the object. There is a new awareness of the forms of lightness or weight attached to the transmission of ideas in and beyond our research communities; the densities of our culture and scholarship. The ever more numerous moments of contact between material culture and digital methodologies open up debates that are of both practical and theoretical significance.

We invite papers that explore any aspect of the intersection between digital and material cultures. We warmly encourage proposals from scholars with a range of disciplinary backgrounds as well as from archival practitioners. Topics and questions to be addressed might include:

 

What are the critical practices in the intersection of digital humanities and the material turn?

Where are the material traces in the digital? What labour is involved in the transitions between the material and the digital? How do material and digital objects, practices and networks interrelate?

What is lost in translations from material to digital, and what is gained?

What is it that archives seek, and are able, to preserve?

What are the political and territorial disputes of material conservation?

How are creativity, meaning and contemporary resonance expressed in museums, libraries and archives?

What material, theoretical and ethical challenges are posed by the collection and use of data ?

Case studies of particular archival collections and the relationships they create between the material and the digital.

What are the opportunities and limitations for pedagogy?

How have contemporary representations imagined the digital transformation  of contemporary cultures?

 

The symposium will run for one day. Proposals for 20 minute papers should contain an abstract of 150 words, as well as your paper title, a short biography (100 words), institutional affiliation and contact details. Proposals should be submitted by 4thFebruary 2015 to amandat@unimelb.edu.au

 

 

The Digital Humanities Incubator (DHI) is an initiative of the School of Culture and Communication at The University of Melbourne, and is supported by a collaborative Faculty of Arts Research Grant.

First Call for Proposals: DHBenelux Conference, 8 & 9 June 2015 , University of Antwerp
To all our colleagues in the humanities and digital humanities,
On 8 and 9 June 2015 , the second DHBenelux conference will take place. The DHBenelux conference is a young initiative that strives to further the dissemination of, and collaboration between Digital Humanities projects in Belgium, the Netherlands, and Luxembourg by hosting an annual conference in various institutions throughout these countries. The conference serves as a platform for the fast growing community of DH researchers to meet, present and discuss their latest research results and to demonstrate tools and projects.

The first DHBenelux conference took place in The Hague (The Netherlands) in 2014 and was a great success, attracting an audience of over 160 participants with a wide range of disciplinary backgrounds, coming from a variety of different countries (including but not limited to the Benelux). In 2015 the conference aspires to welcome an even larger and more diverse audience.
= Conference, Program, Venue =
The DHBenelux 2015 conference will be proudly hosted by the University of Antwerp. The conference will take place on Monday 8 and Tuesday 9 June 2015 at the University of Antwerp campus.
The DHBenelux conference welcomes contributions and participants from all areas of research and teaching in Digital Humanities. While the conference has a focus on recent advances in Belgium, The Netherlands, and Luxembourg, we do warmly welcome contributions from outside the Benelux. The language of the conference is international English. We hope that we may welcome many scholars to the European scientific meeting platform that DHBenelux will constitute in summer 2015 for the Digital Humanities.
The conference program will offer oral presentations, project presentations, poster sessions, and a demo space. Our first confirmed keynote speaker will be William Noel (http://www.willnoel.com/), Director of The Kislak Center for Special Collections, Rare Books and Manuscripts at the University of Pennsylvania.
= Call =
We now invite submissions of abstracts on any aspect of digital humanities: practical experimentation, thorough theorizing, cross- and multidisciplinary work, new and relevant developments. Relevant subjects can be any of—but are not limited to—the following:
- Digital media, digitization, curation of digital objects
- Software studies, modeling, information design
- Text mining, data mining, big data & small data
- Design and application of algorithms and analyses
- Application of digital technology in literary, linguistic, cultural, and historical studies
- Critical study of digital arts, architecture, music, film, theatre, new media, digital games
- Social and economic aspects of digitality and digital humanities

We particularly encourage PhD students and junior researchers to submit abstracts. Note that this call is not limited to researchers in the Benelux. Anyone can submit an abstract.
Proposal should be at least 250 words, not exceeding 500 words. References and/or bibliography, recommended but not obligatory, are excluded from the word count. Proposals may contain graphics and illustrations. Proposals and abstracts should clearly state the title and name and affiliation of the authors and presenters. Also indicate for which category (or categories) of presentation you are submitting your proposal. Presentation categories are:
* Paper
Oral presentations on papers will be given 15 minutes presentation time and 5 minutes for Q&A. Oral presentations are well suited for presenting research methods and results, concise theoretical argument, reporting on ongoing research, project presentations, and presenting intermediate finds or theory development.
* Poster
Posters are particularly suited for detailed technical explanations and clarifications, and for the show and tell of projects and research alike. A two hour poster session is scheduled, posters may be put up for display during the entire conference.
* Demonstration
For demonstrating prototypes, finished software, hardware technology, tools, datasets, digital publications and so forth a ‘market place’ will be organized.
Proposals may combine two presentation modes, e.g. to support the theory detailed in a paper presentation with a practical demonstration on the demo market place. Combined presentations should either consist of a paper plus demonstration, or a paper and poster. In the interest of planning we ask authors to be very careful in indicating chosen combinations of presentation modes.
To submit your proposal, please use the EasyChair facility that we have put online at:https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=dhbenelux2015.

Call for Papers – the Joint Conference of the Society for Textual Scholarship and the Association for Documentary Editing

 

CONVERGENCES AND DIVERGENCES

 

University of Nebraska-Lincoln, June 17-20, 2015

Program Organizers: Andrew Jewell, Amanda Gailey, Elizabeth Lorang, Kenneth M. Price

Deadline for Proposals: January 30, 2015

Keynote Speaker: Jerome McGann

The Society for Textual Scholarship and Association for Documentary Editing announce a historic joint conference of the two organizations to be held at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, an international hub for digital editing. Home to the Center for Digital Research in the Humanities and numerous print and digital editing projects, UNL is located in the capital of Nebraska and offers opportunities for exploring the history and geography of the Great Plains.

This special joint conference will bring together two organizations with a history and future of interests in studying and editing literary and historical materials. We invite proposals on any aspect of documentary editing and textual scholarship, including (but not restricted to) the discovery, editing, annotation, analysis, teaching, and publication of texts from many disciplines, including history, literature, classics, musicology, philosophy, paleography, codicology, linguistics, art history, the history of science, library and information science, film studies, gender and sexuality studies, ethnic studies, and more. We invite proposals from students.

Because this is a unique joint meeting of the two organizations, we are especially interested in submissions on the theme of convergences and divergences—papers that examine how different editorial theories and methodologies at times intersect and at others veer apart. What are the histories and possible futures of the two related but distinct editorial traditions of ADE and STS? We see this conference as an opportunity for reflection about editorial traditions and the prospects for textual studies and encourage proposals that explore these topics.

Submissions may take the following forms:

  1. Papers. Papers should be no more than 20 minutes in length, making a significant original contribution to scholarship.
  2. Panels. Panels may consist of either three associated papers or four to six roundtable speakers. Roundtables should address topics of broad interest and scope, with the goal of fostering lively debate with audience participation.
  3. Posters. Posters showcase projects or present focused topics in a setting that features personal interaction and informal conversation. Posters on works-in-progress are encouraged.

To propose a paper, panel, or poster, send an abstract of no more than 500 words to the program committee via the form available at http://go.unl.edu/e8x8 no later than January 30, 2015. The proposal should clearly indicate the format and whether technological support will be required. Please include the name, email address, and institutional affiliations for all participants.

Opportunity for New Editors: Institute for Editing Historical Documents

With funding from the National Historical Publications and Records Commission, the ADE offers an additional opportunity in Lincoln in conjunction with the conference: the Institute for Editing Historical Documents, to be held June 13-17 for individuals new to the practice of historical documentary editing.  Experienced documentary editors provide instruction in the principles of their field and insight into the realities of their work. For more information, contact Bob Karachuk, Education Director, Association for Documentary Editing, at ade-educationdir@documentaryediting.org.

DCMI/ASIS&T Webinar: “The Libhub Initiative: Increasing the Web Visibility of Libraries”

******************Please excuse the cross postings******************
DCMI/ASIST Joint Webinar
====================================================================
:: Title:  “The Libhub Initiative: Increasing the Web Visibility of Libraries”
:: Presenter: Eric Miller
:: Date:  Wednesday, 7 January 2015
:: Time:  10:00am – 11:15am EST (World Clock: 15:00 UTC  http://bit.ly/DCMI-Webinar-Miller)
====================================================================
ABOUT THE WEBINAR:
As a founding sponsor, Zepheira’s introduction of the  Libhub Initiative  creates an industry-wide focus on the collective visibility of libraries and their resources on the Web. Libraries and memory organizations have rich content and resources that the Web can not see or use. The Libhub Initiative aims to find common ground for libraries, providers, and partners to publish and use data with non-proprietary, web standards. Libraries can then communicate in a way Web applications understand and Web users can see through the use of enabling technology like Linked Data and shared vocabularies such as schema.org and BIBFRAME. The Libhub Initiative uniquely prioritizes the linking of these newly exposed library resources to each other and to other resources across the Web, a critical requirement of increased Web visibility.
In this webinar, Eric Miller will talk about the transition libraries must make to achieve Web visibility, explain recent trends that support these efforts, and introduce the Libhub Initiative — an active exploration of what can happen when libraries begin to speak the language of the Web.
SPEAKER:
Eric Miller  is the President of Zepheira. Prior to founding Zepheira, Eric led the Semantic Web Initiative for the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) at MIT where he led the architectural and technical leadership in the design and evolution of the Semantic Web. Eric is a frequent and sought after international speaker in areas of International Web standards, knowledge management, collaboration, development and deployment.

Job announcement: TEI consulting project for Woodrow Wilson Papers

[This is posted on behalf of the Woodrow Wilson Presidential Library. Please reply to the contact address below]

SEEKING TEI CONSULTANT

The Woodrow Wilson Presidential Library (WWPL) has an archive of 8,000+ documents which have been published on the Library’s eLibrary, using an older (P4) and not entirely compliant TEI schema for XML encoding of the documents. The WWPL is planning to republish these documents and add to this archive and seeks to hire a skilled TEI practitioner to consult with WWPL and other collaborators in this republication project, and devise a new document template that will be TEI P5–compliant. WWPL wants to preserve the searching functionality afforded by the current schema, while bringing it up to date with current best practices.

The project would require analysis of the current encoding practices in order to create a crosswalk between them and a recommended customization of TEI P5 (using the standard modules insofar as possible and extensions where necessary, and including the recently approved <correspDesc> addition to the TEI Header), along with documentation of the changes and any necessary guidelines for future encoding of new documents.

We would ask that after reviewing the materials, you would be prepared to quote a price for the work (payment will be in US dollars; US citizenship not required).

If you are interested in taking on this work, please email a description of your relevant experience or training and (if possible) a copy of your CV and a list of two or three references to the following address:
