        Subject: Symposium: Linked Pasts III (Stanford)

This free event (4-6 December 2017) might be of interests to the people in this list:

Linked Pasts is dedicated to exploring the issues and opportunities raised by developing an ecosystem of online open materials for the study of the past. Its yearly symposia take a hands-on approach to the subject of implementing Linked Open Data—the mechanism by which digital resources can be connected through having something in common (be it place, person, time, or some other entity). Bringing together a diverse group of researchers, Linked Pasts facilitates pragmatic developments in the production, curation and use of historical data in academia and cultural heritage more broadly.

Linked Pasts III @Stanford uses the structure of real-world use cases, provocations and breakout groups to address the challenges of linking people, their works, and place in time. It will be of interest to anyone working with digital data and looking to make their resources more discoverable and usable. Linked Pasts III provides a unique opportunity for scholars, technologists, librarians, and archivists to explore, build and shape linked data practices together."

Call for Proposals
Deadline to submit a proposal:
Friday, December 15, 11:59pm EST

Digital Humanities at Michigan State University is proud to extend its
symposium series on Global DH into its third year. Digital humanities
scholarship continues to be driven by work at the intersections of a range
of distinct disciplines and an ethical commitment to preserve and broaden
access to cultural materials. The most engaged global DH scholarship, that
which MSU champions, values digital tools that enhance the capacity of
scholarly critique to reflect a broad range of literary, historical, new
media, and cultural positions, and diverse ways of valuing cultural
production and knowledge work. Particularly valuable are strategies in which
the digital form manifests a critical perspective on the digital content and
the position of the researcher to their material.

With the growth of the digital humanities, particularly in under-resourced
and underrepresented areas, a number of complex issues surface, including,
among others, questions of ownership, cultural theft, virtual exploitation,
digital rights, endangered data, and the digital divide. We view the 2018
symposium as an opportunity to broaden the conversation about these issues.
Scholarship that works across borders with foci on transnational
partnerships and globally accessible data is especially welcome.

Michigan State University has been intentionally global for more than 60
years, with over 1,400 faculty involved in international research, teaching,
and service. (http://www.isp.msu.edu/about/about-isp/ )

For the past 20 years, MSU has developed a strong research area in
culturally engaged, global digital humanities. Matrix, a digital humanities
and social science center at MSU (http://www2.matrix.msu.edu/), has done
dozens of digital projects in West and Southern Africa that have focused on
ethical and reciprocal relationships and capacity building
WIDE  has set best practices for doing community engaged, international,
archival work with the Samaritan Collections, Archive 2.0
(http://www2.matrix.msu.edu/portfolio-item/samaritan-archive-2-0/). Today
many scholars in the humanities at MSU are engaged in digital projects
relating to global, indigenous, and/or underrepresented groups and topics.

This symposium, which will include a mixture of presentation types, welcomes
300-word proposals related to any of these issues, and particularly on the
following themes and topics by Friday, December 15, 11:59pm EST:

- Critical cultural studies and analytics- Cultural heritage in a range of contexts
- DH as socially engaged humanities and/or as a social movement
- Open data, open access, and data preservation as resistance,
especially in a postcolonial context

- How identity categories, and their intersections, shape digital
humanities work

- Indigeneity anywhere in the world and the digital
- Digital humanities, postcolonialism, and neocolonialism
