Dear colleagues,

it's my pleasure to announce this year's Edirom-Summer-School 2013:

Digital Humanities – Themen, Tools, Technologien
23–27 September
Heinz-Nixdorf-Institut, University of Paderborn
[website and language of instruction: German]

This year, Musicology Seminar Detmold/Paderborn (University of Paderborn and Hochschule für Musik Detmold) is organising Edirom-Summer-School with the BMBF-funded project DARIAH-DE. Moreover, the program is enriched by courses from TextGrid, Herzog August Bibliothek Wolfenbüttel, Technische Universität Darmstadt (DH), and the Danish Centre for Music Publication in Copenhagen.

The scope of course reaches from basic introductions to the markup standards of the Text Encoding Initiative (TEI) and the Music Encoding Initiative (MEI), across working with respective software tools for editorial or library purposes (TextGrid, Edirom, MerMEId), up to practice-oriented courses dealing with more advanced features of encoding manuscripts with TEI and/or MEI. The "Edirom-User-Forum" will give the opportunity of exchange between current and (potential) users of the Edirom Tools.

This year, for the first time, we offer individual research consultancy sessions on "Digital Humanities" and especially "Digital Music Editions". Those interested, be it projects or individual scholars, can apply for a time slot with one of our staff members by submitting a short exposé.

The complete program and further information on registration can be found on our website http://ess.uni-paderborn.de.
Registration deadline is 30 August. 

Best regards,
Peter Stadler

        Subject: Call for Participants: New Media in American Literary History Symposium, Northeastern Dec. 5-6 2013

New Media in American Literary History
Interdisciplinary Symposium
Northeastern University, December 5 & 6, 2013

Confirmed plenary panelists include: Elizabeth Maddock Dillon (Northeastern
University), Ellen Gruber Garvey (New Jersey City University), Lisa
Gitelman (New York University), and Meredith McGill (Rutgers University).

We invite applicants for “New Media in American Literary History,” a
symposium aimed at bringing together “digital” and “analog” scholars
interested in the history of American print media to discuss common
questions, challenges, and identify potential collaborations. Our goal is
to bridge the gap between digital and more “traditional” disciplinary work.
The conference will bring together scholars employing methodologies such as
text mining, topic modeling, digital curation, and network analysis—in
other words, “big humanities data”— into direct and productive dialogue
with Americanist scholars, graduate students, and archivists employing
well-established practices in book history, textual analysis, media
studies, and critical bibliography in their work.

We welcome applications from scholars and graduate students across the
humanities and social sciences thinking through (but not limited to) the
following questions:

    •    What are the unexplored intersections (or ruptures) between
digital and analog research methodologies in American studies?
    •    How might considerations of new media (re)shape our view of
American print history?
    •    How can digital technology transform traditional methods of
scholarly research focused on pre-digital primary sources in the humanities
and social sciences?
    •    Do these digital methodologies make new media research more
accessible and all encompassing or do they create new biases and limited
    •    What are the institutional, technological, social, or cultural
barriers confronting scholars of new media in American literary history and
what are possible solutions?

This symposium will not be structured like a typical conference, with
panels of papers followed by short Q-and-A sessions. Instead, we will
organize the event around project demonstrations, roundtables, group
dialogues, and master classes. Applicants should submit a C.V. and 250 word
proposal that discusses how they might contribute to engaged discussions
about the challenges, limitations, and potential intersections of digital
humanities, book history, bibliography, and media studies. Submissions
should be sent to Ryan Cordell and Rhae Lynn Barnes at r.cordell at neu.edu by
August 9, 2013.

The symposium will take place at Northeastern University December 5-6,
2013, and is sponsored through the Rare Book School’s Mellon Fellowship of
Scholars in Critical Bibliography (
http://www.rarebookschool.org/fellowships/mellon/), the Northeastern
University English Department (northeastern.edu/english/), the Northeastern
University Humanities Center (http://www.northeastern.edu/humanities/), and
the NULab for Texts, Maps, and Networks (http:nulab.neu.edu).
