"A Day in the Life of the Digital Humanities (Day of DH) is a community publication project that will bring together digital humanists from around the world to document what they do on one day, March 18th. The goal of the project is to create a web site that weaves together the journals of the participants into a picture that answers the question, “Just what do computing humanists really do?” Participants will document their day through photographs and commentary in a blog-like journal. The collection of these journals with links, tags, and comments will make up the final work which will be published online."

London Seminar in Digital Text and Scholarship
www.tinyurl.com/LondonSeminar/

This is to invite proposals for seminars in the 2010-11 academic year, 
October through April.

The London Seminar in Digital Text & Scholarship focuses on the ways in 
which the digital medium remakes the relationship of readers, writers, 
scholars, technical practitioners and designers to the manuscript and 
printed book. Its discussions are intended to inform public debate and 
policy as well as to stimulate research and provide a broad forum in 
which to present its results. Although the forum is primarily for those 
working in textual and literary studies, history of the book, humanities 
computing and related fields, its mandate is to address and involve an 
audience of non-specialists. Wherever possible the issues it raises are 
meant to engage all those who are interested in a digital future for the 
book -- and the future of the book in a digital world.

The Seminar is held once per month in Stewart House, adjacent to Senate 
House, Bloomsbury, London, normally on a Thursday. A seminar usually 
consists of an hour's presentation followed by another hour of 
discussion. Refreshments (wine & water) are provided. The seminar leader 
is taken out to dinner afterwards at the Seminar's expense. 
Unfortunately the Seminar cannot fund any major expenses, such as 
transatlantic travel.

An e-mail note sent to both Convenors will suffice. Please specify a 
working title, an abstract and a choice of date. If multiple dates are 
possible, please specify your preference(s).
