        Subject: Upcoming deadline: Institute for Enabling Geospatial Scholarship

The Scholars' Lab at the University of Virginia Library is now accepting applications for TRACK THREE of our NEH-funded "Institute for Enabling Geospatial Scholarship," to be held in Charlottesville, Virginia, 25-28 May 2010.

http://lib.virginia.edu/scholarslab/geospatial/

This program will bring together humanities scholars, software developers, and librarians and other cultural heritage professionals to discuss and develop geospatial tools, content, methods, policies, and infrastructure, in the context of open source and open access. Thirty-one leading scholars, developers, and higher-ed administrators serve on the faculty and advisory board of the Institute.

The National Endowment for the Humanities will support tuition, lodging costs, some meals, and up to $800 in travel expenses for attendees and Institute faculty members. Special funding is available for graduate students. The University of Virginia Library will also fund up to 5 short-term scholar- and developer-in-residencies at the Scholars' Lab to complement the Institute's focus on humanities GIS.

Three four-day Institute tracks are planned:

15-18 November 2009:
Track 1: Stewardship (for library, museum, GIS and digital humanities center professionals)
Track 2: Software (for Web developers, designers, systems administrators, and information scientists)
**all slots in Tracks 1 and 2 are now filled**

25-28 May 2010:
Track 3: Scholarship (primarily for humanities scholars, advanced graduate students, and post-docs)

Application DEADLINE for Track 3 is December 1st.  Special consideration will be given to those who apply as part of an institutional team already represented in Tracks 1 and 2, as the curriculum is designed to foster robust technical and social infrastructure, at a local level, for geospatial scholarship in the digital humanities. Slots are available, however, for solo participants, and we encourage applicants at all skill levels and at all stages in the development of their geospatial digital projects.  The curriculum for Track 3 will be refined with participant needs and interests in mind.

Apply to attend at the URL above, and please help us to distribute this message widely!

        From: jeremy hunsinger <jhuns at vt.edu>
        Subject: call for panelists: Discourses of Legitimation in Knowledge, Cultural and Information Policy

Distribute as appropriate:

I'm putting a panel for Interpretive Policy Analysis: Politic,  
Legitimacy and Power in Grenoble  France July 23-25 2010
http://www.ipa2010-grenoble.fr/
Keynotes this year are:  Bruno Latour, Frank Fischer, Bruno Jobert,  
Patrick Le Galés and Vivien Schmidt.

I need 200-300 word proposals from the panelists.
I need the proposals by 18 November 2009.

The topic of the panel will will be:  Discourses of Legitimation in  
Knowledge and Cultural Policy.  I am looking for at least 3 more  
participants for the panel.

The idea is that in using interpretive methods, we find certain  
discourses that aim to legitimize certain policies related to  
knowledge and cultural policy in our society.  The papers should  
describe these discourses so that in the panel we can present them and  
discuss the similarities and differences.   For my perspective, I tend  
to be most closely allied with Habermasian and Lyotardian issues of  
legitimation and the issues of justification described by Boltanski  
and Thévenot in On Justification.  However, any model of  a discourse  
that legitimizes, justifies a policy will be considered for the panel.

I'd like to see papers for the panel of around 20-30 pages eventually,  
but the panel will minimally need to have presentations of 15-20  
minutes.    If I get the papers, I'll try to get them placed in a  
journal special issue or similar project.

        Subject: Art and Design, Digitisation and Intellectual Property Symposium


The DHO is proud to announce that registration is now open for the Art
and Design, Digitisation and Intellectual Property Symposium being
held at the National College of Art and Design on Thursday 12 November
2009. This event, organised by the National Irish Visual Arts Library
in association with the Digital Humanities Observatory and the Irish
Visual Artists Rights Organisation, aims to clarify issues surrounding
the acquisition, retention and dissemination of art and design digital
content, which is within the copyright term, by archives, libraries
and repositories, and its use in teaching, learning and research.

The Symposium will bring together experts in the field of intellectual
property as it applies to the Irish context and other areas to provide
a forum wherein the practical requirements of artists and designers
and the wider research community may be considered.

For further information on the event and registration instructions see

*apologies for cross-posting*

Third VERA Winter Workshop – Wednesday 2nd December 2009
"Digital field recording and publication in archaeology"

The VERA project invites you to a workshop entitled "Digital field recording
and publication in archaeology" to be held in the Archaeology Department of
the University of Reading on Wednesday 2nd December 2009.

The JISC funded Virtual Research Environment for Archaeology (VERA) project
ran from July 2007 to March 2009 (http://vera.rdg.ac.uk). Its overall aims
where to enhance the documenting and archiving of archaeological data,
create a Web portal that would provided enhanced tools for the VRE users and
then to develop and test utilities that would help encapsulate the working
practices of current research archaeologists unfamiliar with virtual
research environments.

The aim of this third workshop is to show what the project has achieved
during its lifetime. This included three seasons of excavation at
Silchester, digital data capture, and further development of the IADB. We
also hope to discuss more broadly the future of Virtual Research
Environments and Archaeology. The day will begin with coffee around 10am
with talks scheduled to finish at around 4:30pm.

More details, including a timetable and directions to the university, can be
found on the VERA website at: http://vera.rdg.ac.uk/events/winter_workshop_3.php

Places are limited and priority will be given to all current IADB users, but
there will also be places for other archaeologists interested in the VERA
project, so please get in touch by the 25th November if you are interested!
Please also forward this to anyone else who might be interested.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Regards,
Emma

        From: Faith Lawrence <f.lawrence at DHO.IE>
        Subject: Fwd: Announcing the Launch of DHO Forums


We are delighted to announce that the DHO Forums are open. This
resource on the DHO Portal provides an area where academics,
researchers and anyone with related interests can gather together and
share their knowledge and experience.

As part of the DHO's ongoing commitment to support the digital
humanities community the DHO has created a new, user-driven area on
the DHO Portal. This includes a forum dedicated to the theory, best
practices, and practicalities of digital humanities research - want to
discuss what software is available or what standards are applicable to
your project? Curious how other people have dealt with a problem or
who are working in a similar area? The 'Tools, Methods, Standards'
forum is the place for you.

Alternatively, if you are looking to take a break for a moment, the
'General Discussion' forum area is devoted to allowing people across
the island of Ireland, and in the global community, to get to know
each other in a friendly environment. Here you can catch up with the
people you met at the Spring and Summer Schools, or generally find out
what's going on in the community.

To post on the forum you need to register for a DHO account if you do
not already have one.

We invite you to join us at http://dho.ie/forum.

Thanks,

Faith

        Subject: HASTAC 2010: Grand Challenges and Global Innovations

HASTAC is delighted to announce the HASTAC 2010: Grand Challenges and Global Innovations Conference. Held April 15-17, 2010 and hosted by the Institute for Computing in Humanities, Arts, and Social Science (I-CHASS) at the University of Illinois, HASTAC 2010: Grand Challenges and Global Innovations will be a free, entirely virtual event held in a multiplicity of digital spaces instigated from sites across the globe.



This year's event will focus on grand challenges and global innovations in the form of technologies, research, teaching, and inquiry that can be leveraged across personal, physical, geographical, institutional, disciplinary, and organizational boundaries.  HASTAC 2010 seeks to ask: what are the influence(s) of virtual spaces that can transcend boundaries to impact global innovations?  How will the next generation of digital technologies alter personal, physical, geographical, institutional, disciplinary, and organizational boundaries?  What are the grand challenges in humanities, arts, and sciences that will shape the next generation of global innovation?


In the spirit of including digital innovators from across the globe, HASTAC 2010 will feature keynote events hosted at research centers from across the globe during the conference.  Confirmed “virtual hub” participants include:
