Dear Humanists,

The Digital History Seminar at the Institute of Historical Research in
London invites you to our next talk by Ian Gregory and Chris Donaldson
(Lancaster University), who will be discussing  'Mapping Eighteenth-Century
Tourism in the English Lakes', which will be held this coming Wednesday.

 This seminar is being held jointly with the British History in the Long
Eighteenth Century seminar, and as such is not on our usual day.

Full details below:

Title: Mapping Eighteenth-Century Tourism in the English Lakes
Date:  Wednesday 26 November 2014
Time:  5:15 PM (GMT)
Venue:  Institute of Historical Research, Senate House
Speaker: Ian Gregory and Chris Donaldson (Lancaster University)

 Biography: Ian is a geographer who applies Geographical Information
Systems (GIS) to historical research, a field that has become known as
Historical GIS. As a result of the growth of Digital Humanities, he have
become particularly interested in using GIS with texts as well as the more
traditional quantitative sources.

Chris has a background in Classics and Comparative Literature and joined
the ‘Spatial Humanities Project’ in 2013. His research primarily focuses on
the literature and culture of the British and European eighteenth and
nineteenth centuries, with an emphasis on phenomena such as literary
tourism and the creation of literary heritage sites.

        Subject: 11th International Symposium on Computer Music Multidisciplinary Research


Dear all,

We are very pleased to announce that the 11th International Symposium on Computer Music Multidisciplinary Research (CMMR) Music, Mind, and Embodiment will take place in Plymouth, UK on 16-19 June 2015.

Important dates:

Paper submission deadline February 27th 2015
Music submission deadline February 27th 2015
Notification of acceptance March 27th 2015
Revisions and camera ready copy deadline May 1st 2015

Plymouth is a vibrant ocean city with a global history which stretches back hundreds of years. The symposium will include a series of concerts, a satellite workshop on Music Neurotechnology, and an unforgettable boat cruise and banquet trip around the iconic Plymouth Hoe from the Barbican Harbour, site of the Mayflower Steps (portrayed in the logo above), from which the Pilgrim Fathers left England to settle in North America in 1620.

The Interdisciplinary Centre for Computer Music Research (ICCMR) is hosting the symposium on campus in the center of Plymouth, in their newly completed multi-million pound headquarters, "The House", which includes a multichannel diffusion suite and full scale auditorium for concert performances.

Music, Mind, and Embodiment

This year, we encourage the submission of contributions on the theme of Music, Mind, and Embodiment. The notion of mind and embodiment is important in any field related to sound and music and is therefore well adapted to this interdisciplinary conference, since it can be studied from different standpoints spanning from physics to perceptual and cognitive considerations, and from scientific to artistic approaches.

Some central questions of interest in this context are (but not necessarily restricted to) :
How to identify perceptually relevant signal properties linked to music (for example, neurophysiologically or biologically influenced music creation, performance, or analysis?)
How to define new timbre descriptors that characterise perceptual or emotional characteristics?
What is the link between mind and embodiment in musical performance, interpretation, and improvisation?

How can gesture and embodiment be used as a control signal for music generation, sonification, and performance?

How can multiple modalities be characterised in interdisciplinary musical contexts (vision, audition, kinesthetic, bio- and neuro- informed approaches)?

Contributions on other topics as described in the call for contributions are also welcome. Submission deadline is February 27th 2015.

Keynote speakers:
Hugues Vinet (IRCAM)
David Rosenboom (CalArts)
Eduardo Miranda (ICCMR)
