Web of Data Workshop

Digital Humanities at Oxford Summer School (DHOxSS) is one of the
leading international training events in Digital Humanities. It
is for researchers, project managers, research assistants,
students, and anyone interested in Digital Humanities. DHOxSS
delegates are introduced to a range of topics including the
creation, management, analysis, modelling, visualization, or
publication of digital data in the humanities. Each delegate
follows one of our five-day workshops and supplements this with
additional morning parallel lectures. There will also be a
(peer-reviewed) poster session giving delegates a chance to
present their Digital Humanities work to those at the DHOxSS.
This year's DHOxSS will be held on 14-18 July 2014 and the
five-day workshops offered are:
1. Introduction to Digital Humanities
2. Taking Control: Practical Scripting for Digital Humanities
3. Data Curation and Access for the Digital Humanities
4. A Humanities Web of Data: Publishing, Linking and Querying on
the Semantic Web
5. Using the Text Encoding Initiative for Digital Scholarly Editions

500 each for those attending the Humanities Web of Data workshop
in particular (see
should be early-career researchers in the humanities, and must be

defined as up to five years post-phd (or equivalent).
The DHOxSS will offer an excellent opportunity to gain knowledge
and participate in discussions about a wide range of digital
techniques and research methods, as well as exploring key topics
in depth with leading senior researchers and technologists.
The application form asks for a description (max 250 words) of

CALL FOR PAPERS
Extended deadline for proposals: 14 May 2014
TEXTUAL TRAILS - TRANSMISSIONS OF ORAL AND WRITTEN TEXTS
11th Conference of the European Society for Textual Scholarship
Helsinki, 30 October - 1 November 2014
Texts tend to travel across space and time, carried by sound waves, written on parchments and codices, sealed in envelopes and travel trunks, and streaming as bits in the internet. They pass from mouth to mouth, from singers' performances to scholars' notes, from stone engravings to printed books, or from writing desks to digital editions.
Sometimes it is possible to trace the trail of a text or a fragment via several phases of transmission. These trails can be, for instance, a part of the genesis of one writing or an editorial history of one literary work, or they can run through a historical text tradition of scribal texts.
The eleventh conference of the European Society for Textual Scholarship, TEXTUAL TRAILS. Transmissions of Oral and Written Texts (Helsinki, 30 October - 1 November 2014), seeks to explore all kinds of textual trails from various angles of scholarly editing and textual scholarship. The present call for papers encourages submissions on related topics, such as:
1. Stemmatology in theory and practice
2. Chains of changes in edition history
3. Textual continuums in genetic editing
4. Digital editing and visualisation of textual trails
5. Metamorphoses of bibliographic codes
6. Evolving ideas and textual growth
7. Variance and invariance in the transmission of oral and written texts
8. Spatio-temporal text mining.
