Focusing on East Asia:The 6th International Conference of Digital Archives
and Digital Humanities 2015
December 1-2, 2015
National Taiwan University, Taipei, Taiwan
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
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
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.
The call for papers is open for all who are interested.

Subject: Hands-on History Feb 2016 CFP
EXPLORING NEW METHODOLOGIES FOR MEDIA HISTORY RESEARCH
(can also be viewed at http://tinyurl.com/HandsOn16)

Geological Society, London
Confirmed keynote speakers:
* Prof. Susan J. Douglas (Professor of Communication Studies, University of Michigan)
* Dr. Gerard Alberts (Associate Professor of the History of Mathematics and Computing, University of Amsterdam)
â?oMedia Scholars and Amateurs of All Countries and Disciplines, Hands-on!â? *
Recent years have witnessed a growing turn to experimental historical research in the history of media technologies. In addition to archival investigation and oral history interviews, historians and enthusiasts are increasingly uncovering histories of technology through hands-on exercises in simulation and re-enactment. Equipment lovingly restored by amateurs, or preserved by national heritage collections, is being placed in the hands of the people who once operated it, provoking a new and rich flood of memories.
The turn to experimental research raises profound methodological questions. The unreliability of narrative memory is well proven, but what do we know about the limits of haptic and tactile memory? To what extent is it possible to elicit useful memories of technological arrays when parts of those arrays are missing or non-functional? How do the owners of old equipment shape the historical narratives which are stimulated by their collections?
Hands-On History is a colloquium designed to facilitate discussion of these issues between historians, users, curators and archivists (amateur and professional) who are making use of and taking part in these historical enquiries. In addition to a series of keynote presentations by leading scholars in the field, the event will also include stimulating workshops on specific focus areas. While the focus of the event will be on media technologies, broadly defined, we invite contributions from other areas of technology and from other academic disciplines.
This colloquium aims to make a decisive intervention in this emerging area of academic interest. It is part of the ADAPT project, a European Research Council funded project investigating the history of television production technologies through hands-on simulations. Research conducted by ADAPT will form a key case study for the colloquium.
In order to facilitate productive discussion, numbers will be limited. It is expected that papers presented will form the basis of an edited collection focused on hands-on historical research.
We invite proposals for research presentations, panel discussions, and historical equipment demonstrations. Presentations may take whatever format is most appropriate, and we welcome approaches which deviate from the traditional 20 minute lecture.
Please send a brief proposal to nick.hall at rhul.ac.uk<mailto:nick.hall at rhul.ac.uk> by 28 August 2015.

2015 Chicago Colloquium on Digital Humanities and Computer Science
November 13-15, 2015
The University of Chicago – Chicago, Illinois, USA Submission Deadline:
August 31, 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 August 31st.
This year’s DHCS is sponsored by The University of Chicago, Loyola
University Chicago, Northwestern University, DePaul University, and the
Illinois Institute of Technology.
