CFP: Epic Fail at Museums & the Web

We’re going to be shining a light on the failures that we individually and we collectively have had as project teams, institutions, and maybe even the sector as a whole.

Each Fail will present a short 7-10 minute slot followed by 10 minutes panel and open-mic discussion. Each Fail needs to be presented by someone who worked on the project – this isn’t a crit-room – and we want you to feel comfortable enough to be honest and open. We want you to explore the reasons why you thought the project was a failure, diagnose where it went wrong, what would you do differently, and then collectively discuss the key lessons for future projects of a similar nature or targeting similar people.

Call for Proposals for the 2013 Annual Meeting of the AHA

Call for Proposals for the 2013 Annual Meeting of the AHA.

The 127th annual meeting of the American Historical Association will be held January 3–6, 2013, in New Orleans. The Program Committee welcomes proposals from all members of the Association, whatever their institutional affiliation or status, as well as from affiliated societies, historians working outside the United States, and scholars in related disciplines.
The theme for the meeting, described in greater detail in the article, is “Lives, Places, Stories.” While seeking proposals for sessions that explore facets of this broad theme, we also welcome submissions on the histories of all places and time periods, on many different topics, and on the uses of varied sources and methods. We also invite members to employ and analyze diverse strategies for representing the past, including fiction, poetry, film, music, and art. The AHA is a capacious organization, unique among learned societies in its devotion to the full range of historical scholarship and practice. We hope that our program will reflect this strength, and to this end, we will seriously consider any proposal that advances the study, teaching, and public presentation of history.

Call for Proposals: Ignite Talks at DML2012

Call for Proposals: Ignite Talks | DML2012.

Do you have a creative idea around the future of education and learning that you want to share? Are you excited about new possibilities or a new way of thinking? Are you ready to explore your ideas with a diverse and engaged community?
We’re looking for a few courageous souls who want to get their early stage ideas out there in a short, spunky format – an Ignite Talk – at the DML2012 Conference. Ignite talks are radically different from traditional conference talks. We’re looking for humor, wit, energy and inspiration to be packed into one powerful five-minute talk. Visual and conceptual impact is also a must.

CFParticipation: Linked Ancient World Data Institute

New York University’s Institute for the Study of the Ancient World (ISAW) will host the Linked Ancient World Data Institute (LAWDI) from May 31st to June 2nd, 2012 in New York City. “Linked Open Data” is an approach to the creation of digital resources that emphasizes connections between diverse information on the basis of published and stable web addresses (URIs) that identify common concepts and individual items. LAWDI, funded by the Office of Digital Humanities of the National Endowment for Humanities, will bring together an international faculty of practitioners working in the field of Linked Data with twenty attendees who are implementing or planning the creation of digital resources.

CFP: Society for Digital Humanities

The Society for Digital Humanities (SDH/SEMI) invites scholars, practitioners, and graduate students to submit proposals for papers and sessions for its annual meeting, which will be held at the 2012 Congress of the Social Sciences and Humanities, Wilfrid Laurier University and University of Waterloo, Waterloo, Ontario, from 28-30 May.

The society would like in particular to encourage submissions relating to the central theme of the Congress–“Crossroads: Scholarship for an Uncertain World.” While this year’s Congress theme is well suited to the interests of SDH/SEMI, we encourage submissions on all topics relating to both theory and practice in the evolving field of the digital humanities.

CFP: “Occupying Crossroads”: SDH-SEMI, CGSA, and FSAC/ACEC (Canada)

CGSA (Canadian Game Studies Association), SDH-SEMI (SDH/SEMI. Society for Digital Humanities / Société pour l’étude des médias interactifs) and FSAC/ACEC (Film Studies Association of Canada / Association Canadienne d’études Cinématographiques) are co-sponsoring a cross-listed joint panel at Congress 2012 (http://congress2012.ca/) focussed on the theme of “Occupying Crossroads”. Deadline February 1, 2012.

CFP: SEM/AMS/SMT Call for Abstract: Digital (Ethno)Musicology

For SEM 2012, I plan to form a panel on the theme of digital/computational explorations within and around the disciplines of ethnomusicology. The panel would be titled “Digital (Ethno)Musicology.” In this session, the panelists would address the ways in which they have transformed and challenged the conventional modes of field work and ethnographic representation via an engagement with digital media and technology. Since this is a combined meeting with AMS and SMT, I welcome panelists with predominantly musicological inquiries as well.
