Dear Members of Humanist,

[Please repost]

A Digital Classicist Seminar series will start in New England in the 
spring of 2015. The Call for Papers has been announced at

  Digital Classicist Seminar New England: Call for Papers

We are pleased to announce the Call for Papers for the third series of 
the Digital Classicist New England (Boston?). This initiative, inspired 
by and connected to London's Digital Classicist Work in Progress Seminar 
 http://http://www.digitalclassicist.org/wip/ , is organized in 
association with the Perseus Digital Library at Tufts University. It 
will run during the spring term of the academic year 2014/15.

We invite submissions on any kind of research which employs digital 
methods, resources or technologies in an innovative way in order to 
enable a better or new understanding of the ancient world. We encourage 
contributions not only from students of Greco-Roman but also from other 
areas of the pre-modern world, such as Egypt and the Near East, Ancient 
China and India.

Themes may include digital editions, natural language processing, image 
processing and visualisation, linked data and the semantic web, open 
access, spatial and network analysis, serious gaming and any other 
digital or quantitative methods. We welcome seminar proposals addressing 
the application of these methods to individual projects, and 
particularly contributions which show how the digital component can 
facilitate the crossing of disciplinary boundaries and answering new 
research questions. Seminar content should be of interest both to 
classicists, ancient historians or archaeologists, as well as to 
information scientists and digital humanists, with an academic research 
agenda relevant to at least one of these fields.

Anonymised abstracts [1] of 500 words max. (bibliographic references 
excluded) should be uploaded by midnight (CET) on 01 November 2014 using 
the special submission form. When submitting the same proposal for 
consideration to multiple venues, please do let us know via the 
submission form.

Seminars will run from mid-January through April 2015 and will be hosted 
at Brandeis, Holy Cross, Northeastern and Tufts. The full programme, 
including the venue of each seminar, will be finalised and announced in 
December. In order to facilitate real-time participation from California 
to Europe, seminars will take place in the early afternoon and will be 
accessible online as Google Hangouts.

As with the previous series, the video recordings of the presentations 
will be published online and we endeavour to provide accommodation for 
the speakers and contribute towards their travel expenses. There are 
plans to publish papers selected from the first series of the seminar as 
a special issue in an appropriate open access journal.

[1] The anonymized abstract should have all author names, institutions 
and references to the authors work removed. This may lead to some 
references having to be replaced by "Reference to authors' work". The 
abstract title and author names with affiliations are entered into the 
submission system in separate fields.
