CFP: Digital Research in Early America, WMQ-UC, IRVINE Workshop

From the CFP:

We seek scholars at all levels and positions who are producing analytic research on early American studies using computational techniques. This might include those working on language and text analysis, such as topic modeling or word vectors; mapping and geospatial modeling; quantitative analysis of archival databases; or other computational approaches that allow us to rethink and remediate topics and issues in early American history. Submissions could present research results from data mining, offer new interpretations of material culture made possible by image or 3-D analysis, or advance historiographic arguments about the nature and form of scholarship (how does presentation affect argument? how might we best define “research”?) in light of recent advances in delivery platforms. We welcome proposals from scholars in all disciplinary fields that interrogate the early American past, defined broadly. We particularly encourage scholars who have interests in women’s and gender history, race and slavery, and indigenous studies.
