        Subject: DH2015 panel inquiry

Dear Colleagues,

I am preparing a proposal for a “multiple paper session” at the DH 2015
conference in Sydney (http://dh2015.org/cfp/) on the theme of “New
developments in quantitative metrics,” and I would like to recruit
additional participants. Proposals for presentations to run between 15 and
30 minutes (depending on the eventual size of the panel) should discuss the
use of original digital tools or methods to support the machine-assisted
identification and analysis of formal structures (e.g., meter, rhyme) in
poetry in any linguistic tradition. Proposals should involve research that
has progressed beyond a general project description, and should foreground
specific research questions that have been explored or answered with the
help of the digital technologies employed. Proposals should include the
name, affiliation, and email address of the author(s), an abstract
describing the content and focus of the presentation, and a statement that
at least one author of the proposed contribution is committed to
participating in the session in person if the proposal is accepted.
Proposals should also indicate the authors’ awareness and acceptance of
the policy described in the Call for Proposals that reads: “Papers that
are submitted as part of a special session may not be submitted individually
for consideration in another category.” If you are interested in
participating in this panel, please respond to David J. Birnbaum at
djbpitt at gmail.com no later than Monday, October 27, 2014.
