Call for papers - Workshop on Big Humanities Data at IEEE Big Data 2015, 29
October 2015

******** Submission Deadline extended to 7 September 2015 ********

The 3rd IEEE Workshop on Big Humanities Data will be held on Thursday 29
October in Santa Clara, California, USA, in conjunction with the 2015 IEEE
International Conference on Big Data (IEEE BigData 2015)
 http://cci.drexel.edu/bigdata/bigdata2015/ . This workshop will address
applications of “big data” in the humanities, arts, culture, and social
science, the challenges and possibilities that such increased scale brings
for scholarship in these areas.

Full papers, of up to 9 pages, should be submitted via the conference
online submission system. We also encourage submission of short papers (up
to 4 pages) reporting work in progress. The submission deadline is 7
September 2015. All papers accepted will be included in the proceedings
published by the IEEE Computer Society Press, which will be made available
at the conference.

Topics covered by the workshop include, but are not restricted to, the
following:

   - Text- and data-mining of historical and archival material.

   - Social media analysis, including sentiment analysis

   - New research objects for humanities analysis such as digital music, film

   - Cultural analytics

   - Social analytics

   - Crowdsourcing and big data

   - Curation and preservation of big data

   - Cyber-infrastructures for the humanities (for instance, cloud computing)

   - NoSQL databases and their applications in the humanities

   - Big data and the construction of memory and identity

   - Big data and archival practice

   - Corpora and collections of big data

   - Linked Data and Big Data

   - Constructing big data for research in the humanities

2015 Chicago Colloquium on Digital Humanities and Computer Science

November 13-15, 2015
The University of Chicago – Chicago, Illinois, USA Submission Deadline:
September 11th, 2015 http://chicagocolloquium.org

The Chicago Colloquium on Digital Humanities and Computer Science (DHCS)
brings together researchers and scholars in the humanities and computer
science to examine the current state of digital humanities as a field of
intellectual inquiry and to identify and explore new directions and
perspectives for future research.

Ten years ago, at the first edition of DHCS, Greg Crane asked “What to do
with a million books?”. And since then, dealing with issues related to Big
Data has been a continuous pursuit of Digital Humanists. As such, for this
tenth edition of the Chicago Colloquium, we would like to invite
submissions on any research broadly related to Digital Humanities and
Computer Science work applied to humanistic research, with a particular
focus on visualization tools, theories, methodologies and workflows to make
sense of Big Data. A submission for a paper or poster should include an
abstract of ~750 words and a minimal bio. Please send it to
clovisgladstone at uchicago.edu by September 11th.

This year’s DHCS is sponsored by The University of Chicago, Loyola
University Chicago, Northwestern University, DePaul University, and the
Illinois Institute of Technology.

        Subject: DHRG Lecture : Diving into Data and Thinking Outside of the (Search) Box -  ARTFL and PhiloLogic 4 : Thurs 10 Sept, PS-EA-2.13


University of Western Sydney
Digital Humanities Research Group

You are warmly invited to:

“Diving into Data and Thinking Outside of the (Search) Box:
ARTFL and PhiloLogic 4”

Guest Speaker

Professor Robert Morrissey
Benjamin Franklin Professor of French Literature
Committee on Interdisciplinary Studies in the Humanities
University of Chicago

To be held on

Thursday 10 September 2015
3:00pm-4:00pm

Parramatta South Campus
Building EA, Room PS-EA.2.13 (LT02)

This talk will give an overview of past, present, and future activities of the University of Chicago’s ARTFL Project (American and French Research into the Treasury of the French Language), one of North America’s oldest and best known centres for digital humanities research. In particular, ARTFL Director Robert Morrissey will describe some of the challenges, design decisions, and underlying research questions brought to light through the recent development of ARTFL’s primary search and retrieval software, PhiloLogic. By using ARTFL’s flagship Encyclopédie database as a primary example, the talk will concentrate on various attempts at dealing with the problem of the “tyranny of the search box” by allowing for a more intuitive and user-friendly interplay with text data and metadata.

Professor Robert Morrissey is Benjamin Franklin Professor of French Literature, and the Committee on Interdisciplinary Studies in the Humanities at the University of Chicago. Situated at the confluence of literature and poetics on the one hand and ideology and politics on the other, his research concentrates on themes and cultural currents over the longue durée. His work is thus aimed at defining the parameters of these themes and exploring the tensions they play out on a range of levels: the descriptions of the intimate moments of rêverie; the political and cultural affirmations derived from the foundational “myth-history” of Charlemagne; the origins and development of a specifically French discourse on glory that serves a key legitimating function for both self and Nation.

His publications include L’Empereur à la barbe fleurie: Charlemagne dans la mythologie et l’histoire de France (Charlemagne and France: A Thousand Years of Mythology), which received the Grand Prix d’histoire Chateaubriand, La Rêverie jusqu’à Rousseau, and Napoléon et l’héritage de la gloire (The Economy of Glory: From Ancien Régime France to the Fall of Napoleon). He is also Director of the Project for American and French Research on the Treasury of the French Language (ARTFL), the France Chicago Center, and Senior Fellow of the Computation Institute.
