CFP: EADH Calls for Small Grant Proposals

From the CFP:

Digital Humanities are inherently interdisciplinary and frequently require collaboration across institutions and borders. EADH Small Grants are intended to support research in the field by offering small awards that facilitate communication, collaboration, and the development of new ideas. EADH invites funding proposals for amounts of between €200-1000 that will enable such work. Applications from doctoral students and early career researchers are especially welcomed. Applicants must be current members of EADH or an Associate Organisation (AIUCD, DHd, or DHN).

CFP: Book History & Digital Humanities, UW-Madison, September 22-24, 2017

From the CFP:

Often celebrated and criticized as the next big thing in humanist research and teaching, “the digital humanities” get a lot of press for shaking up the way things are done. But is “dh” a continuation of some of the most “traditional” scholarly work in the humanities: bibliography, textual criticism, and book history? This conference, convened by the Center for the History of Print and Digital Culture at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, aims to study how digital humanities grows out book history, how “bh” and “dh” continue to be mutually informative and generative, and how also they contradict each other.

CFP: Archives Unleashed 3.0: Web Archive Datathon

From the CFP:

This event is a follow-up to the Archives Unleashed datathon series – the first was held in March 2016 in Toronto and the second was held in June 2016 Washington DC. We’re continuing the datathon program in 2017, and are excited to bring this program to the Internet Archive…By bringing together a group of like-minded scholars and programmers, we hope to begin building unified analytic production effort and to continue coalescing this nascent research community. At this event, we hope to continue to converge on a shared vision of future directions in the use of web archives for inquiry in the humanities and social sciences in order to build a community of practice around various web archive analytics platforms and tools.

CFP: Innovations in Digital Humanities Pedagogy

The International Digital Humanities Training Network / ADHO Training Group is sponsoring a conference, “Innovations in Digital Humanities Pedagogy: Local, National, and International Training” on August 8, 2017.

From the CFP:

Only recently have the digital humanities begun to take firm root in the humanities curriculum, with institutions around the world now committing significant resources toward developing DH and integrating it in standalone courses, graduate degrees and undergraduate majors and minors within and across departments. With this commitment comes the realization that such formal implementation of DH and its siblings (e.g. digital social sciences, digital media, etc.) at a degree-granting level requires articulation of core requirements and competencies, identification and hiring of faculty who are capable of teaching DH in a variety of learning environments (coding, systems, application of methods), evaluating a broad spectrum of student work, and beyond.

CFP: Meaningful Data / Données Signifiantes

From the CFP:

The human and social sciences are experiencing an influx of quantitative methods which try to deal with the questions of meaning, at the centre of semiotic reflection…This special issue of Semiotica seeks to present studies that employ or explore quantitative measures to reshape the ways in which we may study what is meaningful.

Les sciences humaines et sociales connaissent aujourd’hui d’importantes transformations liées au développement de méthodes quantitatives en recherche. Ces dernières essayent d’aborder les questions liées au sens, au cœur de la réflexion sémiotique…Ce numéro spécial de Semiotica vise à présenter des travaux qui utilisent des instruments quantitatifs pour étudier ce qui est signifiant.
