London Digital Humanities Group Seminar Series, 30 April 2013

5.15, Room S264, 2nd Floor, Senate House, Malet Street, London WC1E 7HU

'Manufacturing Pasts: Digitising the Industrial Landscape in Twentieth-Century Britain'

Terese Bird (Learning Technology), Simon Gunn (Urban History) and Tania Rowlett (University Library), University of Leicester

This seminar introduces a new JISC project based at the University of Leicester which has produced resources on twentieth-century Leicester as a case-study in industrial history. The resources relate to four themes: de-industrialization, conservation and regeneration, the life of the factory and the factory community. Making available photographs, maps, newspaper materials and other sources in digital form, the project aims to open up the exploration of these aspects of the history of industrial landscapes to students, historians and a wider public.

In this seminar we will outline the historical rationale for the project and the techniques involved in realising it. There will be opportunities both to engage directly with the materials online and to participate in a larger discussion about the value and uses of this kind of project in digital humanities.

"The Humanities & Humanistic Values in Society and Business"

23 & 24 MAY 2013

A two-day seminar in Rome at The Royal Netherlands Institute and The
Danish Academy.

It is time to create economic and social capital through dialogue and
synergy between society, business and the humanities – time to rethink,
reform, re-engage and re-empower the humanities.
The seminar aims at fostering a constructive and forward-looking debate
about how humanists and business people can collaborate to unfold the
human resources of the job market, add value and create responsible growth
and innovation. We invite you to join the discussion with humanists,
economists and successful managers (CSR, HR) from The Netherlands,
Denmark, Italy, The United States, Great Britain, Switzerland and Japan
addressing the challenges, opportunities and future of the Humanities.

KEYNOTE SPEAKER is the prominent and ambitious British philosopher and
art historian: JOHN ARMSTRONG.

Call for Papers

The International Conference on Culture and Computing
(Culture and Computing 2013)

Date: September 16-18, 2013
Venue: Nakagawa Hall, Suzaku Campus, Ritsumeikan University, 
Kyoto, Japan
http://www.media.ritsumei.ac.jp/culture2013/

Culture and Computing is a new research area which aims to 
overcome different cultural issues in international communities 
using information and communication technologies (ICT). There 
are various research directions in the relations between 
culture and computing: 
to archive cultural heritages via ICT (cf. digital archives), 
to empower humanities researches via ICT (cf. digital 
humanities), to create art and expressions via ICT (cf. media
art), to realize a culturally situated agent (cf. cultural
agent), to support multi-language, multi-cultural societies
via ICT (cf. intercultural collaboration), 
and to understand new cultures born in the Internet and Web 
(cf. net culture).

The International Conference on Culture and Computing provides 
an opportunity to share research issues and discuss the future 
of culture and computing, which has been held in cultural 
cities including Kyoto, Japan (2010, 2011) and Hangzhou, China 
(2012). The fourth conference (Culture and Computing 2013) will 
be back to Kyoto, the cultural heart of Japan, organized with 
an exhibition on the integration of state of the art cultural 
computing technologies and Japanese traditional culture, along 
with a number of co-located events. To understand the 
proceedings at the previous conferences, please visit below. 
http://www.astem.or.jp/virtual-lab/culture/conference

Papers are solicited on any aspect on the intersection of 
culture and computing, but all papers are expected to be 
suitable for a multidisciplinary audience. We have Main Track 
and Special Track sessions. The Main Track will present a 
collection of academic research results. Examples of suitable 
paper topics for the Main Track include:

- Archiving cultural heritages
- Information environments for humanity studies
- Art and design by information technologies
- Digital storytelling
- Intercultural communication and collaboration

The Special Tracks are collections of short papers, and are 
organized for the purpose of encouraging discussions in hot 
areas. We have Special Tracks for "Digital Humanities" and
