Invitation to submit papers on the Digital Humanities to ACM Symposium 
on Document Engineering, Sept 2013


We would like to encourage you and your colleagues to submit a paper to 
the 13th ACM Document Engineering Symposium (DocEng) which will be held 
in Florence, Italy Sep 10-13 this year.

DocEng provides an annual international forum for presentations and 
discussions on principles, tools and processes that improve our ability 
to create, manage and maintain documents. It is a nice friendly 
conference with around 70 attendees preceded by a day of workshops and 
tutorials. Initially DocEng had a fairly technical focus but in the last 
few years it has broadened scope to include important application areas 
including the digital humanities. The idea is not to compete with 
existing digital humanities publishing venues but rather to provide a 
quality venue for papers that describe techniques and applications of 
document processing within the digital humanities.

Please think about submitting a paper to DocEng.

More information including the CFP is available at 
http://www.doceng2013.org

Best regards

Kim Marriott (Program Chair) and Simone Marinai (Symposium Chair)

Digital History Seminar, Institute for Historical Research

Ben Schmidt

'Unintended Consequences: Digital Reading and the Loci of Cultural Change'

5:15PM (GMT), Tuesday 12 March

Bedford Room G37, Senate House, Ground floor, and live online at
HistorySpot http://historyspot.org.uk

Large scale digital reading is, as its critics have noticed, quite poor at
telling us about individual intentions. But digital texts do create new
fields for investigation of broad cultural trends which—where reasonably
good metadata is available—can help historians to describe changes that
appear largely driven by disciplinary or geographical structures rather
than the choices of an individual author.

Ben Schmidt's paper will investigate this in two contexts; in the emergence
of a new vocabulary of attention in the twentieth century directly contrary
to the ambitions of the psychological establishment; and the particular
places authors of historical fiction fail to notice changes in language and
culture.

Ben Schmidt is a Ph.D. Candidate in American intellectual history at
Princeton and the Graduate Fellow at the Cultural Observatory at Harvard.
His dissertation studies the emergence of modern conceptions of attention
in psychology, advertising, and mass media in the early 20th century
century United States. He co-developed Bookworm, a system for visual and
statistical exploration of millions of books, newspaper pages, or journal
articles, and writes about text analysis and the digital humanities at
sappingattention.blogspot.com.
