SIG-AH and SIG-VIS (Arts & Humanities, Visualization-Images-Sound) of ASIST are joining forces to examine the digital humanities and information visualization with a group of papers to be published in an upcoming special issue of the Bulletin of the American Society for Information Science and Technology.
In 2012, NINES (Networked Infrastructure for Nineteenth-century Electronic Scholarship) at the University of Virginia will be hosting the second of two NEH Summer Institutes in Advanced Topics in the Digital Humanities. The topic is “Evaluating Digital Scholarship,” and we are specifically inviting current and incoming Department Chairs in English, Foreign Languages, and Classics to participate.
JCDL (Joint Conference on Digital Libraries) 2012 Call For Participation June 10-14, 2012 GWU Washington, DC, USA.
The theme for JCDL 2012 is #sharing #linking #using #preserving. Digital libraries, under a variety of names and modalities, are often part of the every day web experience. The challenge is how digital libraries can enhance user experience through providing stability in changing information environment, breaking down information silos, integrating into accepted practices of the web, and providing a range of access and services to resources across the web, both to human and machine users.
We all know that you cannot change the message without changing the medium. We all know that changing the medium inevitably changes the message. HASTAC’s fifth international conference, hosted this year by the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, December 1-3, practices what it preaches, experimenting with an array of new forms and formats designed not just to discuss “Digital Scholarly Communication” but to explore how each of those three terms–digital, scholarly, communication–changes the others in ways that presage powerful new possibilities for higher education (both in the academy and for the general public).

This edited collection will consist of an editors’ introduction and three sections. The first section will consist of eight to twelve chapters that define field connections between rhetoric and the digital humanities. The second section will consist of eight to twelve chapters focused on research methodology. The third section will include eight to twelve short vision statements, modeled after the NEH white paper genre, which offer several paths for exploring interdisciplinary trajectories between rhetorical studies and the digital humanities.
