        Subject: Call for Papers: Digital Humanities in Biblical Studies and Early Jewish and Christian Studies

Dear all,

The SBL program group "Digital Humanities in Biblical Studies and Early Jewish and Christian Studies" would like to advertise a call for papers for its sessions at the International SBL meeting, jointly with the European Association of Biblical Studies, in Vienna from 6-10th July 2014.

We expect papers on:
(1) The creation and structuring of digital data representing the texts and artefacts relevant to Biblical Studies, Early Jewish Studies and Early Christian Studies

(2) The digital analysis of said data (linguistics, stylometrics, stemmatology, network analysis, etc.), the presentation, rendering and visualisation of data and its analysis, and critical analysis of the social and cultural aspects of the digitisation of research and society in relation to the aforementioned texts and artefacts.

For more information and to submit a proposal, please see the following webpage (mind the wrap):
http://www.sbl-site.org/meetings/Congresses_CallForPaperDetails.aspx?MeetingId=24&VolunteerUnitId=574

The unit chairs can also be contacted there, although I will also be happy to respond to any questions. The deadline is 4th February 2014.

Many thanks,
Hugh Houghton

        Subject: DHSI Colloquium 2014


Hello all,

Only 9 days until the close of DHSI 2014's call for colloquium submissions. The DHSI Colloquium is a wonderful opportunity to present your work to the DH community, and the sessions are always well attended.

This year, we have decided to add proceedings to the Colloquium, so those of you that do present will have the opportunity to pursue publication thereafter. Further details of this will be made available in June.

For those of you attending DHSI that haven't already done so, we would encourage you to submit a paper. The DHSI Colloquium is a peer reviewed gathering held in high regard amongst DHers, but it is also an informal occasion at which emerging and established scholars alike can share their projects, ideas and research in a collegiate and constructive manner. Our Colloquium is carried out in a friendly environment, with a welcoming atmosphere, where debate is always amicable. It's a showcase run by the DH community for the DH community.

The call for papers is reiterated as follows:
Call for Papers: DHSI Colloquium, 3-6 June 2014

Open to all DHSI attendees, the colloquium starts on the second day of the institute and takes place during sessions that begin each day. Presentations will be informal and will take the form of brief, high-impact demonstrations and/or presentations (5 minutes). This change in format reflects and facilitates the diverse, dynamic, and exciting research that continues to spur the growth of the DHSI community. The colloquium welcomes presentations by individuals and teams of two or more presenters.

We invite proposals of 200-300 words for these presentations. Topics may include, but are not limited to, the scholar’s role in personal and institutional research projects, tool application and development, perspectives on digital humanities implications for the individual’s own research and pedagogy, etc. Submissions are welcome from emerging and established scholars alike (including, but not limited to, graduate students; early career scholars and humanities scholars who are new to the digital humanities; librarians, and those in cultural heritage; alt-academics; academic professionals; and those in technical programs).

Please submit abstracts via https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=dhsi2014.

Deadline for submissions is January 15, 2014.

Submissions will be peer-reviewed, with authors being notified by late February 2014.

For more information, contact Mary Galvin (galvin.mg at gmail.com<mailto:galvin.mg at gmail.com>) and/or James O’Sullivan (josullivan.c at gmail.com<mailto:josullivan.c at gmail.com>), or alternatively dhsi2014 at easychair.org<mailto:dhsi2014 at easychair.org>.

        Subject: CfP: Quantifying Affect and Emotion, Past and Present - Open panel at the Annual Meeting of the Society for the Social Studies of Science (4S), August 20-23 2014, Buenos Aires


Call for Papers

Open Panel: Quantifying Affect and Emotion, Past and Present
Annual Meeting of the Society for the Social Studies of Science (4S), August 20-23 2014, Buenos Aires, Argentina

In an age of “Big Data,” the enumeration of feelings has become big business. Increasingly sophisticated facial recognition algorithms, techniques of textual sentiment analysis, and sensors able to monitor gait and body language have all made emotion increasingly legible as digital code and algorithmic input. 

Yet the entanglement of feelings with enumeration is not new - the tracking and quantification of emotion has been a feature of techno-scientific discourse since the early 19th century. Affect and emotion have long been subject to what historian of medicine Otniel Dror terms "discoursing in numbers": the translation and integration of feeling into the realms of the calculable and predictable.

This open panel aims to bring together scholars working on the history of techniques and technologies for enumerating affect and emotion with those exploring contemporary digital modes of emotional tracking and quantification. The panel welcomes papers from a wide range of disciplines, particularly work that combines historical and contemporary sites of analysis. Possible panel themes and topics include, but are not limited to:

By what means have feelings been variously quantified, categorized, classified and integrated into numerical discourses throughout history? 
How are contemporary practices of emotional quantification and tracking descended from or in contrast to historical examples of these techniques?  
When and where have the particularities of changing scientific practice shaped technical and popular understandings of feeling, both historically and in the present? 
In what ways are existing regimes of scientific knowledge around emotion being revised in view of new techno-scientific developments, and how are these epistemic shifts changing our personal understanding of emotion itself?
How are quotidian practices of daily self-tracking and the idea of the "quantified self" shaping contemporary views of feeling and affect? 

Please submit a paper abstract (250 words) electronically via the conference website: http://convention2.allacademic.com/one/ssss/4s14/. Please also forward a copy of the abstract to luke.stark at nyu.edu.

The deadline for submitting your abstract is February 28, 2014. Accepted authors will be notified by April 1, 2014. 

For further information, please contact Luke Stark at luke.stark at nyu.edu
