        Subject: cfp: Research Foundations for Understanding Books and Reading inthe Digital Age: E/Merging Reading, Writing, and Research Practices [12 December 2012; Havana]


Research Foundations for Understanding Books and Reading in the Digital Age:
E/Merging Reading, Writing, and Research Practices

12 December 2012.  Hotel Parque Central, Havana, Cuba.
Proposals due 15 May 2012.

Digital technology is fundamentally altering the way we relate to writing,
reading, and the human record itself. The pace of that change has created a
gap between core social/cultural practices that depend on stable reading and
writing environments and the new kinds of digital artefacts - electronic
books being just one type of many - that must sustain those practices now
and into the future.

This one-day gathering explores research foundations pertinent to
understanding new practices and emerging media, specifically focusing on
work in textual and extra-textual method, in itself and via exemplar,
leading toward [1] theorizing the transmission of culture in pre- and
post-electronic media, [2] documenting the facets of how people experience
information as readers and writers, [3] designing new kinds of interfaces
and artifacts that afford new reading abilities, [4] conceptualizing the
issues necessary to provide information to these new reading and
communicative environments, [5] reflecting on interdisciplinary team
research strategies pertinent to work in the area, and beyond. 
Presentations addressing these and other issues in relation to emerging /
transforming (digital) infrastructures, in regional, national, and
international contexts are also most welcome.  Centrally proximate to all
the Americas and in the midst of a renaissance, Havana has been selected as
an ideal locus for address of these issues by those across the Americas, the
Caribbean and adjacent regions.

Featured events include a plenary address by Alan Liu (UCSB) and a
discussion panel focusing specifically on digital humanities concerns in a
regional context.

We invite paper proposals that address these and other issues pertinent to
research in the area, as well as all digital humanities concerns in a
regional context.  Proposals should contain a title, an abstract (of
approximately 250 words) plus list of works cited, and the names,
affiliations, and website URLs of  presenters; fuller papers will be
solicited after acceptance of the proposal, for circulation in advance of
the gathering. We are pleased to welcome proposals in all languages in which
our community works, and note that the chief working language of past
gatherings has been English.  Please send proposals before 15 May 2012 to
siemens at uvic.ca<mailto:siemens at uvic.ca.


The gathering takes place allied with activities of the THATCamp Caribe
group (http://caribbean2012.thatcamp.org/) and Red de Humanidades
Digitales (RedHD; http://www.humanidadesdigitales.mx/), the Alliance of
Digital Humanities Organisations (ADHO; http://digitalhumanities.org/),
the Society for Digital Humanities / Société pour l'étude des médias
interactifs (SDH/SEMI; http://sdh-semi.org/), and the Public Knowledge
Project (PKP; http://pkp.sfu.ca/), and is sponsored by the Maryland
Institute for Technology in the Humanities (MITH), the Implementing New
Knowledge Environments (INKE) research group, and the Social Science and
Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC).  Earlier gatherings of this
group have taken place in conjunction with the Second International
Symposium on Digital Humanities for Japanese Arts and Cultures (Kyoto,
November 2011; sponsored by the Japanese Association for Digital
Humanities, the Digital Humanities Center for Japanese Arts and Cultures
at Ritsumeikan U, INKE, and SSHRC), the conference Texts and Literacy in
the Digital Age: Assessing the Future of Scholarly Communication (The
Hague, December 2010; sponsored by the National Library of the
Netherlands, the Book and Digital Media Studies department of Leiden U,
INKE and SSHRC), and at U Victoria (October 2009; sponsored by INKE and
SSHRC).
