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.

CFParticipation: Survey on DH Collaborations

About the survey:

I consider three dimensions of trading zones, as mentioned in an earlier blogpost: 1) cultural maintenance, 2) coercion, and 3) contact & participation. The current survey focuses on this final dimension, the contact & participation. With this dimension, we aim to gain an insight in the ways people in a trading zone participate, and the organisational structures of interdisciplinary collaboration.  It is entirely possible that you are part of multiple collaborations; e.g. you could be part of a DH centre that has a lab, and you work on one or more projects. If that is the case, we kindly ask you to take the survey for each individually, and not combine answers in one go. We are particularly interested in collaborations that include historians.

CFP: Global Digital Humanities Symposium at Michigan State University

From the call:

Digital Humanities at Michigan State University is proud to extend its symposium series on Global DH into its third year. Digital humanities scholarship continues to be driven by work at the intersections of a range of distinct disciplines and an ethical commitment to preserve and broaden access to cultural materials. The most engaged global DH scholarship, that which MSU champions, values digital tools that enhance the capacity of scholarly critique to reflect a broad range of literary, historical, new media, and cultural positions, and diverse ways of valuing cultural production and knowledge work…With the growth of the digital humanities, particularly in under-resourced and underrepresented areas, a number of complex issues surface, including, among others, questions of ownership, cultural theft, virtual exploitation, digital rights, endangered data, and the digital divide.

CFP: Our (Digital) Humanity – Storytelling, Media Organizing, and Social Justice

From the call:

The Our (Digital) Humanity: Storytelling, Media Organizing and Social Justice Community Conference will take place at Lehigh University and in the adjacent Southside of Bethlehem, Pennsylvania April 20-22, 2018.  The conference is also referred to as ODH2018. This innovative community conference will locate the budding field of digital humanities at the intersection of public humanities, digital scholarship, oral history, “media organizing” & social justice. The conference will create an inter-generational convergence space for members of social movements, community based public historians, students, and activist-scholars to network, share their digital projects, offer digital capacity building trainings and strengthen collaboration.

CFParticipation: The Digital Dissertation – History, Theory, Practice

From the CFP:

How do these “new paradigms” play out in the context of the dissertation?  While digital dissertations have been around for twenty years or more, the precise processes by which they are defined, created and defended remain something of a mystery. Is an interactive pdf significantly different than its paper-based counterpart? What specific possibilities can a digitally networked environment offer that are impossible without its affordances?…This project, The Digital Dissertation: History, Theory, Practice, will consist of a definitive database of digital dissertation projects as well as an ebook whose chapters explore the larger implications of digital scholarship across institutional, geographic and disciplinary divides. Have you completed or advised a digital dissertation? Then please consider this project.
