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 ( focussed on the theme of “Occupying Crossroads”. Deadline February 1, 2012.

This section contains a directory of digital historians, guidelines for evaluating digital scholarship, an index of digital scholarship, information on the National Endowment for the Humanities Digital Humanities Start-up Grant, Digital History project reviews, and new media tool reviews.

DHCommons is a hub for people and organizations to find projects to work with, and for projects to find collaborators.

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.

An updated the sample output from Collatex shows output from user-specified witnesses in the form of (1) an alignment table based on user-specified order, (2) an extracted text of a base text (taking the first specified witness is the base text), (3) generating an apparatus.

There were many insights to be had at HASTAC 2011, but I most enjoyed participating in a panel of lightning talks that all explored issues involved in the creation of a digital repository. At Session D3, the presentations raised many promising possibilities and challenging questions about the nature of the digital archive.
