        Subject: ESF funded bursaries for GIS workshop 5-6 Sept 2009

The DRHA Programme Committee is delighted to announce that the European
Science Foundation (ESF) Standing Committee for the Humanities (SCH) has
generously funded three bursaries for early stage researchers to attend
the GIS pre-conference workshop (5-6 September 2009) of the DRHA 2009
conference <dho.ie/drha2009>. The bursaries will be awarded to a maximum 
of EUR
1000 each to cover workshop registration fees and accommodation at the Elms
Residence (€600 with three nights accommodation), as well as a
contribution towards travel and subsistence.

If participants would like to use any excess funds up to EUR 1000 to
attend the DRHA conference, registration will be made available at the
postgraduate delegate rate.

To apply for these fellowships, candidates must be:

* an emerging scholar, which is defined by the ESF as someone who has
not been in an established position for more than five years, with
exceptions for parental, medical, and national service leaves. The ESF
notes that ‘students, post-doctorate researchers and lecturers within 5
years of appointment would be amongst those included in this definition’.

* you are affiliated to a an institution in a country in which ESF has a
member organisation <see
http://www.esf.org/about-us/80-member-organisations.html>'

If you fit these criteria and would like to apply for consideration,
please send no more than two pages that include the following: a brief
CV showing your career history and current academic affiliation, how
this workshop will intersect with your research, and a
short statement describing any planned involvement in DRHA 2009 to
susan.schreibman[AT]gmail.com and Paul.Ell[AT]qub.ac.uk by 15 August.

        Subject: TEI seminar on manuscript encoding: call for participation

Please note extended deadline!

Applications are invited for participation in an advanced TEI seminar  
on manuscript encoding, being held at the University of Maryland,  
January 20-22, 2010, hosted by the Maryland Institute for Technology  
in the Humanities.

Application deadline is August 10, 2009. Participants will be notified  
by September 1.

This seminar assumes a basic familiarity with TEI, and provide an  
opportunity to explore manuscript encoding topics in more detail, in a  
collaborative workshop setting. We will focus on the detailed  
challenges of encoding manuscript materials, including editorial,  
transcriptional, and interpretive issues and the methods of  
representing these in TEI markup.

This seminar is part of a series funded by the NEH and conducted by  
the Brown University Women Writers Project. They are intended to  
provide a more in-depth look at specific encoding problems and topics  
for people who are already involved in a text encoding project or are  
in the process of planning one. Each event will include a mix of  
presentations, discussion, case studies using participants' projects,  
hands-on practice, and individual consultation. The seminars will be  
strongly project-based: participants will present their projects to  
the group, discuss specific challenges and encoding strategies,  
develop encoding specifications and documentation, and create encoded  
sample documents and templates. We encourage project teams and  
collaborative groups to apply, although individuals are also welcome.  
A basic knowledge of the TEI Guidelines and some prior experience with  
text encoding will be assumed.

Travel funding is available of up to $500 per participant.
