CFP: Terms of Service – Affective Labor and Alt-Ac Careers

Laptop icon

From the CFP:

We are looking for a collection of short essays (4000-4500 words) that critically engage the affective labor of being an alt-ac or staff inside or outside the academy. We are particularly interested in submissions from alt-acs who are POC, LGBTQIA, and/or disabled, as the intersection of gender, race, sexual orientation, and disability heavily impact the affective labor expectations and experiences. 300-word abstracts are due by October 31, 2018. Acceptances will be sent out by November 16, 2019, with final essays required by July 1, 2019.

CFPresenters: NFAIS 2019 Humanities Roundtable

Laptop icon

From the CFP:

Interested in presenting at this Humanities Roundtable event? Our call for presentations is open until August 31, 2018 at http://www.nfais.org/humanities-call-for-presenters.

As humanities scholars utilize new technologies to produce their research, traditional measures of evaluation often do not reflect the changing output.  However, proper assessment is critical for hiring as well as for tenure and promotion decisions, which have an affect on the future of academia. Institutions, departments and societies are in the process of developing guidelines of evaluating work in digital media/digital humanities, while scholars are learning new skills to become competent peer reviewers.

NFAIS will explore this new realm of scholarship at our “Evaluation of Digital Scholarship in the Humanities and Its Impact” roundtable on March 10, 2019  in Washington DC, and we invite you join the discussion as a speaker!

CFP: Current Research in Digital History 2019

From the CFP:

The Roy Rosenzweig Center for History and New Media invites submissions for the second annual Current Research in Digital History conference. Submissions should offer historical arguments and interpretations rather than showcase digital projects.

Some travel funding for presenters is available. Presentations will be peer-reviewed and published in an online publication that accommodates dynamic visualizations and narrative.

ACH 2019 is seeking reviewers to evaluate conference proposal submissions during December 2018 and January 2019. ACH wishes to establish a wide, and as varied as possible, pool of reviewers for this conference.

We welcome members of any academic affiliation or professional role who are interested in the digital humanities that would like to help shape the representation of our organization at its first national conference. Although we are a US-based organization, we encourage those who live in regions of the world that are not represented by existing professional organizations to review, recognizing that intellectual, cultural, institutional, and other forms of diversity make a vital contribution to scholarship and practice.

CFParticipation: Working with Gothic script? Join a new Transkribus working group!

Laptop icon

From the CFParticipation:

Gothic scripts from the Middle Ages can be found in archives and libraries all over Europe.  The script was widely used for hundreds of years, and not only in expensive decorated books.  First experiments with documents from Switzerland and Germany have demonstrated that Gothic script can be recognised by Automated Text Recognition models with good levels of accuracy (see an example from the cartulary of the Königsfelden abbey).

The next step is to combine different examples of Gothic scripts in order to build and improve generic models for the recognition of this kind of document.  Dr Tobias Hodel (State Archives of Zurich, University of Zurich) has set up the ‘Gothic Hands’ working group – where all Transkribus users can work together towards the aim of the improved recognition of Gothic material.  Scroll down to find out more about joining the working group and its aims.
