Final Call for Papers ‘The Making of the Humanities V’
Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore, 5-7 October 2016

The Fifth Making of the Humanities (MoH) conference <http://www.historyofhumanities.org/2015/10/29/call-for-papers-and-panels-the-making-of-humanities-v/> brings together scholars interested in the history of the humanities disciplines, including archaeology, art history, historiography, linguistics, literary studies, musicology, philology, and media studies, tracing these fields from their earliest developments to the modern day.

We welcome paper and panel submissions on any period or region. We are especially interested in work that transcends the history of specific humanities disciplines by comparing scholarly practices across disciplines and civilizations.

        Subject: Multispectral Imaging and Digital Manuscript Recovery at Kalamazoo


Dear all,

The Lazarus Project  http://www.lazarusprojectimaging.com/ ,  will be
hosting multispectral imaging workshops at the 51st International Congress
on Medieval Studies at Kalamazoo on techniques for digital manuscript
recovery. The Lazarus Project is a multispectral imaging initiative that
works with imaging specialists from around the world. We have recently
worked on projects at Chartres, Vercelli, the National Library of Wales,
and the Beinecke Library. If you are interested in participating in either
an imaging or processing workshop, please sign up here:

We hope to see you there!

Thank you,
Helen Davies

ARE THE HUMANITIES MORE DIGITAL THAN THE SCIENCES?

http://torch.ox.ac.uk/are-humanities-more-digital-sciences-0

A panel discussion with  Howard Hotson (Professor of Early Modern Intellectual History, University of Oxford), Andrew Prescott (Professor of Digital Humanities, University of Glasgow), Dave De Roure (Professor of e-Research, Oxford e-Research Centre) and Heather Viles (Head of School of Geography and the Environment). The discussion is chaired by Kathryn Eccles (Research Fellow, Oxford Internet Institute and Digital Humanities Champion, Humanities Division, University of Oxford). The presumption is often that the relationship between the humanities and sciences will be one-way, and that it will be the humanities learning from sciences. But what can sciences learn from the way that the humanities are using digital output for their research?
