Innovative Interrogations: Modelling, Prototyping and Making

Implementing New Knowledge Environments (INKE) Conference @ DHSI 2016
June 10-11, 2016, University of Victoria

Call for Papers

The ways that we model knowledge define the opportunities and limits of understanding, and inventive approaches to critical inquiry bring fresh perspectives to existing assumptions while uncovering new correlations, complexities and challenges. Humanities scholarship in digital arenas benefits from the opportunity to prototype and critically reflect on new knowledge environments which offer unique models of understanding and modes of scholarly communication.

Such modelling and prototyping activities (the products and processes of which are arguments, theories and methods) involve engaged, inventive, and exploratory research practices that overlap with critical making discourses.

Possible topics can include, but are not limited to:

  *   ideological and political implications of critical modelling and prototyping practices
  *   humanities modelling strategies
  *   provocative prototyping
  *   ways of modelling data (visualization, db structures, indexing)
  *   modelling as mapping
  *   critical making and maker culture
  *   tool and interface prototyping
  *   prototyping as research/rhetoric/argumentation
  *   modelling pedagogy
  *   prototyping as pedagogy
  *   open social scholarship
  *   experimental defamiliarization
  *   gaming and gamification
  *   unconventional knowledge environments

Since the conference sessions will be structured to encourage extensive discussion, we invite proposals for short papers (10 minutes) that address the conference topics and other issues pertinent to research in the area. Poster proposals for a planned poster session are also welcome. Proposals should consist of:

  *   a title
  *   an abstract of approximately 250 words
  *   a list of works cited
  *   the names and affiliations of presenters and their coauthors.

We are pleased to welcome proposals in all languages of our community; note that the chief working language of past gatherings has been English.

Please send proposals to Jon Saklofske (jon.saklofske at acadiau.ca) and/or Jon Bath (jon.bath at usask.ca) by the end of the day on January 29, 2016.

This conference will be held in conjunction with the Digital Humanities Summer Institute<http://dhsi.org/> and the annual conference of the Electronic Literature Organization<http://elo2016.com/>. Featured collaborative events include a joint institute lecture on Friday June 10th by Jon Saklofske (Acadia U), “Prototyping Resistance: Wargame Narrative and Inclusive Feminist Discourse,” with panel discussants Stephanie Boluk (Pratt Institute), Diane Jakacki (Bucknell U), Elizabeth Losh (UC San Diego), and Anastasia Salter (U Central Florida), and a joint reception on Friday evening at the UVic University Club.

Journal publication following conference

We have planned for selected articles based on conference talks to be published in a special issue of Digital Studies / Le champ numérique.

INKE Modelling and Prototyping<http://inke.ca/projects/modelling/>

The Modelling and Prototyping team (M&P) is part of a seven-year research project on the future of reading called Implementing New Knowledge Environments (INKE). The goal of M&P is to reconsider the form and content of current options for humanities data distribution and explore how such options can be expanded upon and pluralized through imaginative and combinative work that thinks and argues through tool building. Our models and prototypes self-reflexively engage with the ways that the traditional politics and habits of scholarly communication can be extended, ignored, or challenged by digital humanities initiatives, tools, and environments.
