Digital Humanities in the Nordic Countries 
calls for submissions for its 2018 conference i
n Helsinki, Finland, 7–9 March 2018,
deadline 25th October

In 2018, the conference seeks to extend the scope of digital humanities research covered, both into new areas, as well as beyond the Nordic and Baltic countries. In pursuit of this, in addition to the abstracts familiar from humanities traditions, we also adopt a call for publication ready texts as is the tradition in computer science conferences. Therefore, we accept the following types of submissions:

Publication ready texts of length appropriate to the topic. Accepted papers will be submitted to the CEUR-WS proceedings series for publication in a citable form. Layout for the papers is not absolutely mandated, but we suggest you use the Springer LNCS templates to ensure a uniform look for the proceedings.

Long paper: 8-12 pages, presented in 20 min plus 10 min for Q&A
Short paper: 4-8 pages, presented in 10 min plus 5 min for Q&A
Poster/demo: 2-4 pages, presented as an A1 academic poster in a poster session.

Abstracts of a maximum of 2000 words. Proposals are expected to indicate a preference between a) long, b) short, or c) poster/demo format for presentation. Approved abstracts will be published in a book of abstracts on the conference website.

Submissions to the conference are now open at ConfTool!

Im­port­ant dates

The call for proposals opened on 28 August 2017, and the deadline for submitting proposals is 25 October 2017. Presenters will be notified of acceptance by 8 January 2018. For papers accepted into the citable proceedings, there is an additional deadline of 5 February 2018 for producing a final version of your paper that takes into account the comments made by the reviewers.

The full call for papers can be found at

        Subject: First seminar in the new IHR Digital History Seminar series - October 17, The History of Learning Digital History, c. 1980-2017


Dear Humanist,

On October 17th, 2017, the IHR Digital History seminar is pleased to
present: Adam Crymble – The History of Learning Digital History, c.
1980-2017

Abstract

There is no ‘digital history’ curriculum. Instead, a patchwork of
individual scholars have been creating resources and modules that suit
their own digital interests. This paper explores the ever-evolving digital
history learning ecosystem, from the 1980s through to the present,
considering what we are teaching fellow digital historians, what forms that
teaching takes, and just how innovative it really is. The paper looks at
more than 100 university syllabi across Canada, the United States, and
England, and considers regional and temporal variation in teaching
practice, to show us where digital history teaching has come from, and
perhaps where it might go.
-----

Adam Crymble is a lecturer of digital history at the University of
Hertfordshire. He did his PhD in history and digital humanities at Kings
College London. He earned his MA in Public History, his BA in History, and
his Certificate in Writing and Rhetoric, from the University of Western
Ontario. Adam’s research explores how we can make meaningful discoveries
about the past in datasets that are too large to ingest by reading each
source. This distant reading approach to history combines computer science,
linguistics, and information science with the pursuit of history.
-----

We're also pleased to announce the Autumn 2017 / Spring-Summer 2018 seminar
dates and topics, with an exciting series of talks on a diverse range of
topics.

Seminars are held on Tuesdays from 5.15pm to c6:15pm, and everyone is
invited for a drink and a meal in a local venue afterwards.

Since it began in 2012, the IHR Digital History Seminar discusses
historical research that has been made possible by the use of digital tools
and resources. It is hosted by the Institute of Historical Research
 http://www.history.ac.uk/  and is offered in association with IHR Digital
 http://www.history.ac.uk/digital .
