        Subject: THATCamp SoCal, January 11-12, 2011

Dear colleagues,
 
DHSoCal is co-sponsoring THATCamp SoCal immediately following the 2011 MLA Convention in Los Angeles. Dates for THATCamp (The Humanities And Technology Camp) in Southern California are January 11-12, 2011. The event will be hosted at Chapman University in Orange, California. 
 
Because this regional THATCamp is scheduled in conjunction with the 2011 MLA Convention, we especially encourage literary-minded humanists to attend and will offer workshop sessions of particular interest to those who work with literature. We welcome applications both from Southern California residents and from those coming to the area to attend the MLA Convention. The application period is currently open. More information is available at http://socal2011.thatcamp.org/.
 
WHAT IS THATCAMP AND HOW DOES IT DIFFER FROM A TRADITIONAL CONFERENCE?
While THATCamp consists of concurrent sessions as at a traditional conference, each session is run in a more informal fashion. There are no lengthy presentations; rather, each session has a leader or leaders to "get the ball rolling," with the remainder of the session given over to discussion or productive, collegial work. The expectation is that everyone who attends a session participates in some way. The conference schedule is developed at the opening session based on clusters of interest. A typical THATCamp schedule can be viewed at http://chnm2010.thatcamp.org/schedule/. In addition to THATCamp sessions, THATCamp SoCal will include several BootCamp workshops covering technologies of interest to digital humanists. 
 
WHO SHOULD APPLY?
Anyone -- scholars, students, librarians, museum professionals, technologists -- with an interest in humanities and technology and a willingness to share their knowledge in a collaborative environment may apply. While most THATCamp attendees have an affiliation with an academic institution, this is not required. 
 
HOW DO I APPLY?
The application period is currently open. Rolling acceptances will continue until conference capacity is reached. Applicants are expected to offer one or two session proposals. While not all session proposals will make it onto the final schedule, proposing a session does imply that the applicant is willing and able to serve as session (co-)leader for that topic. The actual application is done online at http://socal2011.thatcamp.org/.
 
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST TO ATTEND? IS THERE FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE?
It costs nothing to attend THATCamp; however, the organizers may "pass the hat" during the event and ask for donations to cover refreshments. Fellowships are available for attendees who need assistance covering travel or accommodation expenses.

Le séminaire « Textes anciens et humanités numériques » a pour objet le
renouvellement que suscitent les technologies informatiques dans l'étude
des textes anciens, en particulier grecs et latins, qui occupent une
place spéciale dans la construction des /digital humanities/. En
indiquant les étapes d'une histoire riche de plus d'un demi-siècle
d'expérimentations et en dressant un tableau sélectif des instruments et
des projets actuels, il s'agit d'inviter à une réflexion sur les enjeux
de la philologie numérique et sur l'avenir de l'édition critique.

Ce cycle de conférences complémentaires de l'École des hautes études en
sciences sociales comporte six séances. Elles auront lieu de décembre
2010 à mai 2011, le mercredi de 14 h à 16 h, à l'Institut national
d'histoire de l'art, 2 rue Vivienne, 75002 Paris, salle Fabri de Peiresc
(séances 1 et 3-6) et salle Mariette (séance 2).

La première séance est une introduction générale. Chacune des quatre
suivantes explore un aspect du domaine, puis propose le commentaire de
projets remarquables. La séance de conclusion examine les problèmes et
les promesses du texte numérique à travers l'exemple d'un projet en
cours d'élaboration.

08.12.20101. Le sens de l'oxymore
12.01.20112. Qu'est-ce qu'un texte ? Projets du vingtième siècle, 1
02.02.20113. Quand lire, c'est faire. Projets du vingtième siècle, 2
02.03.20114. Philologie à venir. Projets du vingt et unième siècle, 1
06.04.20115. Quelle(s) communauté(s) ? Projets du vingt et unième siècle, 2
04.05.20116. Le projet « Athénée numérique »

Toutes les personnes intéressées sont bienvenues, quels que soient leur
spécialité, leur statut et leur pratique de ces technologies toujours
nouvelles. Ce séminaire de recherche est conçu comme un lieu de partage
non seulement des connaissances, mais aussi des expériences et des
questions.

Le carnet de recherche en ligne /Philologie à venir/
(http://philologia.hypotheses.org  http://philologia.hypotheses.org/ )
accompagne ces conférences.
