        Subject: Digital Classicist London CFP 2014


The Digital Classicist London seminars have since 2006 provided a forum 
for research into the ancient world that employs digital and other 
quantitative methods. The seminars, hosted by the Institute of Classical 
Studies, are on Friday afternoons from June to mid-August in Senate 
House, London.

We welcome contributions from students as well as from established 
researchers and practitioners. We welcome high-quality papers discussing 
individual projects and their immediate context, but also accommodate 
broader theoretical consideration of the use of digital technology in 
Classical studies. The content should be of interest both to 
classicists, ancient historians or archaeologists, and to information 
specialists or digital humanists, and should have an academic research 
agenda relevant to at least one of those fields.

There is a budget to assist with travel to London (usually from within 
the UK, but we have occasionally been able to assist international 
presenters to attend).

To submit a proposal for consideration, email an abstract of 
approximately 500 words to s.mahony at ucl.ac.uk by midnight UTC on March 
9th, 2014.

Further information and details of past seminars are available at:

CFP: Digital Americanists at the 2014 American Literature Association (abstracts due Jan 21; conference May 22-25, Washington, DC)

The Digital Americanists Society solicits abstracts (250 words) for papers and/or full panels to be included in the Society's pre-arranged session at ALA 2014 (Washington, DC, May 22-25, 2014). The Digital Americanists are eager to constitute a panel of the most exciting DH work happening in American Studies. If you have a panel idea, we'd be happy to hear about it; email us at digitalamericanists at gmail.com as soon as possible.

In keeping with the Digital Americanists' commitment to a broad understanding of American literature, culture, and digital media, we are pleased to consider submissions that address any facet of the relationship between those terms. Submissions from early-career scholars and members of underrepresented groups are especially encouraged.

Deadline for submissions is January 21, 2014. Send abstracts and questions by plain text email to digitalamericanists at gmail.com.
