“Digital Humanities Without Borders” – 2014 Annual Meeting of the Canadian Society For Digital Humanities / Société Canadienne Des Humanités Numériques

The Canadian Society for Digital Humanities (http://csdh-schn.org/) invites scholars, practitioners, and graduate students to submit proposals for papers, sessions and demonstrations for its annual meeting, which will be held at the 2014 Congress of the Social Sciences and Humanities, Brock University, Ontario from the 26th to the 28th of May (http://brockucongress2014.ca/). The society would like in particular to encourage submissions relating to the central theme of the Congress – “Borders Without Boundaries.” While this year’s Congress theme fits with the interests of many in CSDH/SCHN (pronounced “citizen”), we encourage submissions on all topics relating to both theory and practice in the evolving field of the digital humanities.

Proposals for papers (20 min.), digital demonstrations, and panels (2 -6 speakers for a 1½ hour session) will be accepted until the 8th of December 2013 and must be submitted at https://www.conftool.net/csdh-schn-2014/. Abstracts for these should be between 200 and 400 words long, and should clearly indicate the paper’s thesis, methodology and conclusions.

This year we welcome proposals for Digital Demonstrations of innovative projects or tools. Demonstrations will be given table space and a backdrop so they can set up a poster and a computer for a 2 hour session. We encourage projects with software to show to apply for this venue.

CSDH/SCHN (pronounced "citizen") welcomes proposals for joint panels with The Canadian Game Studies Association (CGSA), and we encourage individual presenters to  note if they are open to being scheduled on a joint panel. Submit your pre-constituted panel proposal or individual paper proposal to either association. You and your panelists need to be members of either association, but not necessarily both. Please see also the CFP for our joint session with ACCUTE on Difference, Diversity and the Digital at http://csdh-schn.org/2013/09/06/cfp14-accute/.

There is a limited amount of funding available to support graduate student travel. Please note that all presenters must be members of CSDH/SCHN at the time of the conference.

Selected papers from the conference will appear in a special collection published in the society journal, Digital Studies/Le champ numérique (http://www.digitalstudies.org/).

Scholars in the digital humanities are engaged in diverse digital and computer-assisted research, teaching, and creation. CSDH/SCHN welcomes proposals from all constituencies and disciplines, and encourages applications from from women, people of color, LGBTQ, or other under-represented groups.

2014 Program committee: Geoffrey Rockwell (program chair), John Bonnett (local organizer), Jon Saklofske, Susan Brown, Stéfan Sinclair, and Michael E. Sinatra.


«Humanités numériques sans frontières» — Réunion annuelle de 2014 de la Canadian Society For Digital Humanities / Société Canadienne Des Humanités Numériques

La Société canadienne des humanités numériques (http://csdh-schn.org/) invite chercheurs et étudiants aux cycles supérieurs à soumettre des propositions de communication, de session et de démonstration pour sa réunion annuelle, qui se tiendra au Congrès 2014 de la Fédération canadienne des sciences humaines à l’Université Brock, Ontario du 26 au 28 mai (http://brockucongress2014.ca/). La Société souhaite encourager en particulier des propositions concernant le thème central de la réunion : «Frontières sans limites». Bien que le thème du congrès de cette année soit bien adapté aux intérêts de la CSDH/SCHN (prononcé citizen), nous encourageons également toute communication qui traite des sciences humaines numériques, tant au niveau théorique que pratique.

Les propositions de communication (20 minutes), démonstrations numériques et de session ou table-ronde (2-6 participants pour une période d’une heure trente) seront acceptées jusqu’au 8 décembre 2013 et doivent être soumises à https://www.conftool.net/csdh-schn-2014/. Les résumés devraient compter entre 200 et 400 mots, et indiquer clairement la thématique, méthodologie, et conclusion.

Cette année, les propositions pour démonstrations numériques de projets innovateurs or d’outils sont les bienvenus. Pour ces démonstrations, une table et une toile de fond seront fournis pour l’installation et la diffusion pour une session de 2 heures. Nous encourageons les projets avec démonstrations de logiciels à appliquer pour ce format.

La CSDH/SCHN accepte les propositions pour des sessions conjointes avec The Canadian Games Studies Association (CGSA), et nous encourageons les présentateurs individuels à nous indiquer s’ils sont intéressés à être planifiés dans une session conjointe. Vous pouvez soumettre vos sessions préformées ou individuelles à l’association de votre choix. Vous et vos panelistes devez être enregistrés à l’une des deux associations, mais pas nécessairement aux deux. Veuillez aussi consulter l’appel à communications pour notre session conjointe avec ACCUTE sur la « Différence, diversité et le numérique » à l’adresse suivante : http://csdh-schn.org/2013/09/06/cfp14-accute/.

La société a des fonds limités pour les frais de déplacements pour les étudiants.  Veuillez noter que tout présentateur devra être membre de la CSDH/SCHN au moment de la conférence.

Une sélection des présentations de la conférence sera publiées dans un numéro spécial du journal de la Société, le Digital Studies/Le champ numérique (http://www.digitalstudies.org).

Les chercheurs en humanités numériques travaillent sur diverses recherches, enseignements et créations numériques et assistés par ordinateur. La CSDH/SCHN accueille les propositions de tous les milieux et de toutes disciplines, et encourage les candidatures venant de femmes, minorités visibles, LGBTQ, ou autre groupe sous-représenté.

Comité scientifique 2014: Geoffrey Rockwell (président du comité), John Bonnett (organisateur local), Jon Saklofske, Susan Brown, Stéfan Sinclair et Michael E. Sinatra.

Call for Papers

Keynote Speakers:
Professor Cathy Shrank (University of Sheffield)
Professor Henry Woudhuysen (Oxford University)

Confirmed speakers: Kate Bennett, Christopher Burlinson, Dan Carey, David Colclough, Alice Eardley, Nick McDowell, Leah Marcus, Valerie Rumbold; Richard Serjeantson, Gary Stringer

From the philology of Lorenzo Valla to twentieth-century debates over copy-text to the new frontier of digital humanities, textual scholars have always argued over the making of meaning. Indeed, argument is integral to the practice of editing: to privilege one reading is to discard another. Bibliographical, historical, and textual choices: these ineluctably and often invisibly inform our larger understanding of the text, the author, and the culture from which they emerge. They can destabilise or confirm our most basic assumptions, from a single word – what is “blew”? – to the nature of the book: what is a text? what is an author? what is an edition?

This landmark two-day conference will draw together experienced and new editors, to analyse and to celebrate editions in progress and to inspire a new generation of editors and editions. Hosted by the AHRC-funded Complete Works of Sir Thomas Browne (forthcoming, OUP), the event will explore the future of editing in universities and offer perspectives from curators and publishers. One direct print outcome will be a handbook on editing sixteenth and seventeenth-century documents.

We invite proposals for 20-25 minute papers on these and other arguments. Topics might include, but are not limited to:

		establishing copy-text
		representing multiplicity: texts, states, revisions
		error and the problem of authorial intention
		non-author-centric editions
		composing editorial mise-en-page
		the role of annotation
		editorial theory
		the case for new editions and the future of editing
		digital humanities
		the impact of editing and textual scholarship

Abstracts should be no more than 300 words long and should be sent to Harriet Phillips (h.phillips at qmul.ac.uk) and Claire Bryony Williams (c.b.williams at qmul.ac.uk) by 1st December 2013.
