CFP: Digital Media and Sacred Text

17 June 2013, 10:00 - 17:00
The Open University Camden Centre, London

This one-day conference will bring together academics interested in
the study of digital sacred text from a wide range of religious
traditions, including sociologists, ethnographers, media scholars,
computer scientists, digital humanists and theologians. We also
welcome religious practitioners and publishers engaged in creating
digital sacred texts.

Possible topics include:

-         How can digital media affect the relationship between a
religious reader and their sacred text?

-         Does digitisation influence the interpretation of a text?

-         What norms are emerging to guide the use of digital sacred
texts, and how are those norms being negotiated?

-         How can digital sacred texts be designed to meet the needs
of religious readers?

-         What challenges does the process of digitizing sacred text
raise for religious communities?

If you would like to present a paper at this event, please submit an
abstract of no more than 300 words by April 15th to Tim Hutchings
(tim.hutchings at open.ac.uk).

Thanks to generous funding from the Arts and Humanities Research
Council, we are able to offer a small number of bursaries to cover
travel expenses for PhD students.

The 2013 Cultural Heritage Informatics (CHI) Fieldschool
http://chi.anthropology.msu.edu/fieldschool/

The 2013 Cultural Heritage Informatics (CHI) Fieldschool introduces students to the tools and methods required to creatively apply information and computing technologies to cultural heritage materials and questions.

The CHl Fieldschool is a unique experience in which students come together for 5 weeks to collaboratively work on cultural heritage informatics projects. In the process they learn to envision and build applications and digital user experiences for cultural heritage – exploring skills such as programming, web design & development, user experience design, project management, digital storytelling, etc.

Build soundly on the principle of “building as a way of knowing,” the CHI Fieldschool embraces the idea that students develop a better understanding of cultural heritage informatics by actually building tools, applications, and digital user experiences.

2013 Fieldschool Theme: Each year, the CHI Fieldschool has a theme which guides and informs all work and projects undertaken by students. This year’s theme is “Visualization: Time, Space, and Data.”

The CHI Fieldschool is offered through the MSU Department of Anthropology as ANP491 (6 Credits)
