digital humanities deutschland | Digital Humanities 2012.
In order to facilitate future strategic development of DH as a leading future research paradigm, we invite all academic Digital Humanities researchers in the German speaking region to come together, exchange ideas and information and establish a joint professional organization called “Digital Humanities Deutschland” (hereafter: DHD). The DHD is intended as a chapter organization within the European ALLC (Association for Literary and Linguistic Computing).

This workshop aims at mapping the various ways in which digital tools can help and, indeed, change our scholarly work on “pre-modern” texts, more precisely our means of analyzing the interrelationships between manuscripts and texts produced in the pre-modern era. This includes the history of textual traditions in a very broad sense, encompassing several fields of research, such as book history, stemmatology, research on textual sources, tracing of borrowings and influences between texts, etc.

Museum Conference 2012 – Europe’s big conference on social and digital media for Museums.

MuseumNext is Europe’s big conference on social and digital media within the museum
sector. We believe that technology is changing the expectations of museum audiences. They
no longer want to have information just broadcasted at them, they want to create, to curate
and to co-produce experiences.

In 2012 MuseumNext will be held in Barcelona, in partnership with three of Spain’s leading
museums, Centre de Cultura Contemporánea de Barcelona (CCCB), Museu d’Art Contemporani de Barcelona (MACBA) and Museu Picasso de Barcelona.

Save Scholarly Ideas, Not the Publishing Industry (a rant) « Social Media Collective.

… But what I want to know is this:

  • What are *you* doing to resist the corporate stranglehold over scholarly knowledge in order to make your knowledge broadly accessible?
  • What are the five things that you think that other scholars should do to help challenge the status quo?

Please, I beg you, regardless of whether or not we can save a dying industry, let’s collectively figure out how to save the value that prompted its creation: making scholarly knowledge widely accessible

The goal of the second annual Theorizing the Web conference is to expand the range and depth of theory used to help us make sense of how the Internet, digitality, and technology have changed the ways humans live. We hope to bring together researchers from a range of disciplines, including sociology, communications, philosophy, economics, English, history, political science, information science, the performing arts and many more.

SECOND CALL FOR PAPERS (21 February 2012): Proposals are now being accepted for presentations at the DHSI Colloquium for the digital humanities, to be held in June 2012 at the University of Victoria. (After an *excellent* first intake of papers for the colloquium, with the promise of additional tuition scholarship spots we’ve added a second intake to ensure that all those receiving tuition scholarships have the opportunity to submit a proposal.)
