CFP: Victorianist Data Network

From the CFP:

The newly-formed Victorianist Data Network will host its free inaugural conference at the University of Virginia on November 15-16, 2019. Our conception of data encompasses British and North American practices for gathering and expressing information; cultural attitudes toward data; the rising disciplines and technologies that lead to today’s communications, new media, critical coding, and data science; digital collections; digital pedagogies; quantitative methods; data theory, and digital humanities. We welcome proposals from those working with historical and/or technical data, as well as the digital-curious. Together, we hope to move data from the margins of nineteenth-century studies by recognizing its centrality to research and methods of all kinds in this international long century (ca. 1780-1920).

We welcome a range of humanist fields and interdisciplinary areas, including literature, history, and art history. Come to share your work, ask your questions about how to get started in a new direction, and learn about what Victorianists have been doing with archives, maps, social networks, book history, sciences from social to physical, corpus linguistics or Natural Language Processing, spectral imaging and data visualization, 3D modeling and virtual reality, and many other possible ways to capture, visualize, and interpret data…
