Call for Papers

Focusing on East Asia:The 6th International Conference of Digital Archives
and Digital Humanities 2015

http://www.dadh.digital.ntu.edu.tw

December 1-2, 2015

National Taiwan University, Taipei, Taiwan

Introduction

Digital Humanities is the child born out of employing rapidly advanced
information technologies to systematically manage and explore the enormous
amount of data accumulated from various research fields. In general,
Digital Humanities refers to the application of information techniques and
the data manage system that comes with it, to investigate issues in
humanities, in particularly those that are considered difficult, or even
next to impossible to observe, describe, or analyze without the aid of
information techniques. For example, digital technology can deal with the
cross-area studies of broader geographical areas, or the diachronic and
comparative researches in longitudinal dimension.

    Through constant exchange of ideas between scholars of both humanities
and information technologies, the development of Digital Humanities has now
gone beyond simple data mining and exploring new research themes within
one’s own research field. It is aimed to become an interdisciplinary
approach that will intertwine knowledge from various research fields, and
integrate different types of data and analytical techniques, in order to
develop new research topics and methodologies, and to motivate both
reflections on and paradigm shift of humanities.

    Looking from a broader sense, information technologies and digital data
have already had very profound impacts on contemporary culture and in our
daily lives. Therefore, issues such as how exactly the application of
information techniques and digital data have impacted which aspect of
contemporary lives; how they have inspired creativities in societal
movements, cultural forms, and artistic expressions; and what will our
lives will be like living in a digital world in the future, have become
important research themes in Digital Humanities.

The theme of this year's conference, “Focusing on East Asia,” is founded on
this area’s specific languages, histories, social lives, and cultures
different from the Western and shape the unique DH research concerns and
topics in East Asia. We welcome submissions on featured topics and
researches based on the particularities of languages, texts, and
social-historical contexts in East Asia. The aims of this conference are:
to engage more researchers to participate in the ongoing dialogs that will
eventually lead to the integration of expertise from various disciplines,
to stimulate more new research themes, and ultimately to contribute to the
growth and flourishing of the East Asia’s research community of Digital
Humanities.

Topics of interest

We invite submissions of abstracts relating (but not limited) to the
following aspects of digital humanities, especially encourage papers
dealing with texts or data from East Asia (including Taiwan, Japan, Korea,
China, Mongolia, Vietnam and Southeast Asia):

Development of digital technologies and their applications to help
advancing humanities studies (including digital media, data mining,
software design, and modeling, etc.).

Interdisciplinary research and humanistic research in literature studies,
linguistics, culture, and history that are conducted with the use of
digital data or digital technology.

Research related to the impact of digital technologies on social,
institutional, and cultural aspects, as well as its impact on globalization
and multiculturalism.

Innovative forms of digital arts such as music, film and theatre; and
digital applications such as digital design and new media.

Other DH-related topics.

Emma Payne (UCL), 
Digital comparison of 19th century plaster casts and original classical sculptures

Digital Classicist London & Institute of Classical Studies seminar 2015
Friday June 19th at 16:30
Room G21A, Senate House, Malet Street, London WC1E 7HU
http://www.digitalclassicist.org/wip/wip2015-03ep.html

Historical casts of original classical sculptures can now function as important archaeological records: we know that they may contain valuable archaeological information subsequently lost from original sculptures. However, it was not unknown for the 19th century plaster craftsmen (formatori) to doctor the casts, crafting their moulds such that when cast, a damaged sculpture would appear more complete. In this sense, plaster casts may be considered artefacts in their own right-rather than straightforward copies-representing 19th century craft techniques and approaches to classical reception.

In order to investigate these potential historical and archaeological significances, 3D scans are being produced of both casts and original objects for comparison. Scanning of casts is taking place at the British Museum, which houses an early collection of casts of classical sculptures. Case studies have been selected by identifying those sculptures for which there are early casts of originals that remained in an outdoor context for many years after they were moulded; these casts are most likely to contain small surface details lost/changed from the originals by processes such as weathering. Sections of casts of the Parthenon sculptures are to be scanned at the British Museum, and the corresponding sections of the originals at the Acropolis Museum, Athens.

The 3D images will record fine topographical details to facilitate study of the current surface appearance and condition of the casts and originals. The two sets of images will then be visually compared and mapped onto each other to indicate any differences. The comparative 3D scans will be used to facilitate interpretation of the complex nature of the plaster surfaces by attempting to distinguish between differences caused by reductive processes on the originals (such as weathering) and additive processes on the casts (made up by the formatori). Results are to be analysed in conjunction with detailed digital photographs and/or reflectance transformation imaging (RTI), together with consideration of the historical context of both casts and originals, craft techniques used to produce the casts, and limitations of the scanning process when dealing with objects of two different materials (marble and plaster). The results should enhance our understanding both of the original sculptures and of the significances of the casts.

ALL WELCOME
The seminar will be followed by wine and refreshments.

Digital humanities and cultural heritage: what relationship? 
Fourth AIUCD annual conference
17-19 December 2015
Campus Einaudi - Lungo Dora Siena 100 - 10153 Torino

The AIUCD 2015 conference is dedicated to investigate the relationship 
between the Digital Humanities and the broad field of Cultural Heritage, 
a line of research that is open since the inception of the former.

On the one hand, the Cultural Heritage domain has been using digital 
tools, processes and methodologies for quite a long time, but their use 
does not imply a recognition of their role as scientifically qualifying.
On the other hand, galleries, libraries, archives and museums preserve 
and provide access to a wealth of content that is the object of much 
research carried out as part of the Digital Humanities.

It is therefore interesting to see if Digital Humanities tools and 
methods have led and will lead to a redefinition of theoretical, 
methodological and technical processes, up to an actual 
re-conceptualization of knowledge in the Cultural Heritage field.

At least two issues indicate the existence of a connection: the 
theoretical reflection on the management of information and data that 
texts hold, which has been carried out as part of the management of 
libraries, has important consequences for the whole wide area of the 
Digital Humanities; in the context of research funding, the increasing 
demand to describe what will be the public impact of planned research 
identifies in a “relationship with society” topic a significant element 
wide spread in the Cultural Heritage area. Furthermore, if on the one 
hand the world of Cultural Heritage has started their own reflection 
that also touches the Digital Humanities, on the other hand the Digital 
Humanities are urged to communicate beyond the inner, often 
self-referential, circle of Academia, and to do this they are inspired 
by the methods of communication and dissemination of knowledge that 
belong to the Cultural Heritage world. In conclusion, a meeting of 
Digital Humanities and Cultural Heritage is already under way, it is 
necessary to act and facilitate a cooperation that results in being as 
effective as possible for both fields.

As a sign of openness and willingness to cooperate with the Cultural 
Heritage world, conference organization is entrusted to the Centro di 
Ricerca Interdipartimentale per la digitalizzazione e la realizzazione 
di Biblioteche Digitali Umanistiche - MEDIHUM Memoria Digitalis 
Humanistica (Università  di Torino).

We are therefore soliciting papers in particular on – but not limited to 
- the following topics:

Digital Humanities and Cultural Heritage: integration, separation, 
independence?
what relationship among Museums, Libraries, Archives and Digital Humanities?
how do Digital Humanities fit in Museums, Archives and Galleries?
visualization, imaging, graphic representations, immersive environments 
in the Digital Humanities and Cultural Heritage areas;
which impact on society for research projects’ output in  the Digital 
Humanities and Cultural Heritage areas?
Public History: Museums, Libraries and Archives today are privileged 
mediators between the public and its past, DH methodologies however 
require new figures, aware of the issues and opportunities offered by 
the digital world;
which forms may the collaboration between cultural institutions and 
digital humanists take in digitization projects, text encoding, critical 
edition, digital curation?
experiences of projects using principles and methods of the semantic 
web, and Linked Open Data research.

The contributions, to be submitted as a 500 words maximum abstract in 
PDF format, must be loaded through the EasyChair platform at the URL: 
https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=aiucd2015.
The deadline for submission of abstracts to the Programme Committee is 
scheduled for midnight of August 31st, 2015. All abstracts will be 
subject to evaluation by the AIUCD conference Programme Committee. 
Information with regard to the acceptance of abstracts will be 
communicated to the authors by 30th September 2015.

Further information on the conference, on the composition of the 
Programme Committee and on how to register will be made available on the 
conference web site at the URL: http://www.aiucd2015.unito.it/ (the web 
site may not be online yet at the moment of publishing this announcement).

        Subject: Big Data and Architecture: Call for Papers
        In-Reply-To: <20150609112714.E1499984 at digitalhumanities.org>


I hope members of the list will consider (or forward to those interested) a call for papers for a session at next year's European Architectural History Network conference in Dublin 2-4 June 2016 on Big Data and Architectural Historiography (broadly understood, including any discussion of urbanism and/or the built environment).

In line with the current discussions of the "digital humanities", and in the context of political critiques of big data urbanism as potentially undemocratic, this session aims at rethinking, discussing and developing architectural research based on large data sets. We encourage submissions of papers which address both historical examples of the use of large data sets for architectural production since the late 19th century and in a global perspective as well as contemporary scholarly uses of "big data" for analysis of historical and contemporary built environments. The large data sets may be numerical, visual/typological, textual, or otherwise defined by the proposed submission. We are especially looking for papers which analyze data by means of digital tools, techniques, and media, which may include graphic methods of knowledge production (rather than simply visualization).

For more information, see: http://www.h-net.org/announce/show.cgi?ID=222048

The paper submission process is now open and the deadline is 30 September 2015. Thanks for considering! Yours, Paul

necessary to act and facilitate a cooperation that results in being as 
effective as possible for both fields.

As a sign of openness and willingness to cooperate with the Cultural 
Heritage world, conference organization is entrusted to the Centro di 
Ricerca Interdipartimentale per la digitalizzazione e la realizzazione 
di Biblioteche Digitali Umanistiche - MEDIHUM Memoria Digitalis 
Humanistica (Università di Torino).

We are therefore soliciting papers in particular on – but not limited to 
- the following topics:

- Digital Humanities and Cultural Heritage: integration, separation, 
independence?
- what relationship among Museums, Libraries, Archives and Digital 
Humanities?
- how do Digital Humanities fit in Museums, Archives and Galleries?
visualization, imaging, graphic representations, immersive environments 
in the Digital Humanities and Cultural Heritage areas;
- which impact on society for research projects’ output in  the Digital 
Humanities and Cultural Heritage areas?
- Public History: Museums, Libraries and Archives today are privileged 
mediators between the public and its past, DH methodologies however 
require new figures, aware of the issues and opportunities offered by 
the digital world;
- which forms may the collaboration between cultural institutions and 
digital humanists take in digitization projects, text encoding, critical 
edition, digital curation?
- experiences of projects using principles and methods of the semantic 
web, and Linked Open Data research.

The contributions, to be submitted as a 500 words maximum abstract in 
PDF format, must be loaded through the EasyChair platform at the URL:
