CFP: Current Research in Digital History 2019

Laptop icon

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. The format of short presentations provides an opportunity to make arguments on the basis of ongoing research in larger projects. Graduate students are encouraged to submit proposals. Some travel funding for presenters is available. Presentations will be peer-reviewed and published in an online publication that accommodates dynamic visualizations and narrative.

CFParticipation: ACH2019 Call for Reviewers

Laptop icon

From the CFParticipation:

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.

Laptop icon

From the CFP:

Duke’s Departments of Classical Studies and of Art and Art History and Visual Studies, in partnership with the Ancient World Mapping Center at UNC Chapel Hill, seek paper proposals for Digital Cartography, a conference on digital mapping and its multiple potential applications for a richer understanding of ancient history. We invite papers on individual or collaborative projects involving such approaches as mapping, photogrammetry, G.I.S. and remote sensing, virtual reality systems, the documentation of archaeological data, and communication both in the classroom and to a wider public. Preference will be given to proposals from graduate students and junior faculty.

Interested speakers (20 minutes maximum) should submit an abstract of no more than 500 words together with a brief C.V. to awmc@unc.edu by September 15, 2018 (please enter “DigCart Abstract” in the message subject line). Those whose papers are selected will be notified by October 1st.

Laptop icon

From the CFP:

We are delighted to invite proposals for Digitorium 2018, a large-scale, international Digital Humanities conference to be held for the fourth time at The University of Alabama, October 4 – 6, 2018.

We seek proposals on Digital Humanities work from researchers, practitioners, and graduate students which showcase innovative ways in which digital methods have brought scholarship and scholarly communities to life, whether locally or globally. We especially welcome proposals which discuss the use of digital methods and their novel results for research, pedagogy, and public scholarship. The conference will host research presentations, roundtables, and workshops throughout the event for participants to gain new digital skills, and to share their expertise in using particular tools.

CFParticipation: Hands Up for Digital Humanities Survey

Laptop icon

About the survey:

This survey is concerned with the knowledge gaps around DH within University and Further Educational settings, however, you don’t have to be currently attending or working in education to respond to this survey. Your engagement with Humanities might stem from previous jobs or qualifications, employment in a related area such as libraries or charities, or you may simply have an individual interest. Whatever your position, your response will help to highlight gaps in DH and enable them to be addressed. I believe that a more streamlined and transparent approach to DH will improve skill-sets developed throughout the years of study, and help to provide a more coherent trajectory as students leave education and embark on a career.

CFParticipation: The Seven More Lessons No One’s Yet Written (but need writing)

Laptop icon

From the CFParticipation:

The Programming Historian Needs YOU…to help historians digitally analyse!

We’ve now published more than 100 lessons in English and Spanish since we launched in 2012. The project is growing faster than we could ever have imagined. But there are still significant holes in our coverage that we’d like you to help us plug. While we always remain open to new lesson ideas on any topic related to your own work, we’d be particularly happy to hear from prospective authors interested in tackling some of the following:
