HTRC

The HathiTrust Research Center (HTRC) is a unique collaborative research center launched jointly by Indiana University and the University of Illinois, along with the HathiTrust Digital Library, to help meet the technical challenges of dealing with massive amounts of digital text that researchers face by developing cutting-edge software tools and cyberinfrastructure to enable advanced computational access to the growing digital record of human knowledge.

HTRC UnCamp
The second annual HTRC UnCamp will be held in September 8-9, 2013 at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. The UnCamp is different: it is part hands-on coding and demonstration, part inspirational use-cases, part community building, and a part informational, all structured in the dynamic setting of an un-conference programming format. UnCamp will feature stellar keynote speakers including Matt Wilkens, who specializes in contemporary American fiction, and digital and computational literary studies at Notre Dame, and Christopher Warren, specialist in Renaissance literature as it relates to politics, law, international political thought, and intellectual history, at Carnegie Mellon.   New this year is a Scholarly Communication Office Hours.  The office hours is a pilot for user services: participants will have the option to sign up for individual consultation sessions with members of the UIUC library.

Who should attend?

The HTRC UnCamp is targeted to the digital humanities and informatics tool developers, researchers and librarians, and graduate students.

Conference call for papers: Making Connections - Collaboration in Research and Practice

National one-day conference that will be asking ‘What Happens When Cultural Institutions and Academics Collaborate?’

Facilitated by the AHRC’s Collaborative Doctoral Award (CDA) and Collaborative Doctoral Partnership (CDP) schemes (www.ahrc.ac.uk/Funding-Opportunities/Pages/Collaborative-Doctoral-Awards.aspx<http://www.ahrc.ac.uk/Funding-Opportunities/Pages/Collaborative-Doctoral-Awards.aspx>), cross-institutional partnerships have become an increasingly popular way of conductingresearch across a range of disciplines. This conference aims to critically explore the benefits, challenges and impact of collaborative research.

Papers may explore the following: What research methods are useful in institutional research? How do you work with and read material culture? What arethe implications of being ‘embedded’ in a museum, gallery or cultural institution? How can researchers balance autonomy with collaboration? How can youtake your project beyond the thesis? How can you maintain collaborative relationships and begin new ones? Are the traditional boundaries betweendefinitions of academic and non-academic research still relevant?

Papers will be welcomed from any stage of an AHRC CDA, or a collaborative PhD, as well as from early career researchers who have already completedtheir PhD.

Abstracts submitted should be up to 250 words outlining papers 15-20 minutes in length. Proposals for posters can also be submitted to showcase collaborative work. Submission date closes 19 August 2013.

The keynote speaker will be Dr Glenn Adamson, Head of Research at the V&A and tutor in History of Design at the Royal College of Art.

Best wishes,
