Dear Fellow Humanists (English to follow),

The Programming Historian en español (https://programminghistorian.org/es/)
invita a la comunidad académica hispanohablante a participar en el taller
'Escritura en Humanidades Digitales para América Latina' que se llevará a
cabo en la Universidad de los Andes (Bogotá, Colombia) del 1 al 3 de agosto
de 2018. El objetivo del taller es reunir a un grupo diverso de
investigadores en distintas áreas de las humanidades para escribir
tutoriales sobre metodologías en humanidades digitales, abordando
específicamente necesidades de investigación en América Latina y el mundo
hispano. Durante el taller se facilitará la producción de los primeros
tutoriales originales en español para ser compartidos con una audiencia
global.

Los participantes trabajarán de cerca con los editores de The Programming
Historian para aprender sobre escritura técnica, redacción de propuestas
para financiamiento y espacios de publicación en humanidades digitales. Un
tiempo importante se dedicará a escribir. Al final del tercer día del
taller esperamos que los participantes tengan un tutorial en borrador para
publicación en The Programming Historian en español. El taller será
bilingüe, algunas sesiones serán en inglés y otras en español.

Estamos agradecidos con la British Academy cuyo apoyo financiero nos
permite ofrecer hasta 15 subsidios para cubrir los costos de viaje y
alojamiento a participantes de las siguientes regiones:

- 2 - Centroamérica (£700 cada uno)
- 2 - El Caribe (£700)
- 2 - Cono Sur (£700)
- 2 - Norte de Suramérica (£500)
- 4 - Colombia (£125)
- 3 - Otras partes del mundo (£700)

Recibimos aplicaciones de investigadores hispanohablantes y de América
Latina en cualquier etapa de su carrera. Animamos a aplicar especialmente a
investigadores en la fase incial de sus carreras y a estudiantes de
posgrado. Los interesados deben enviar un correo electrónico a
mj.afanador28 at uniandes.edu.co con un CV de máximo 2 páginas y una
descripción de máximo 250 palabras sobre el tutorial de humanidades
digitales que les gustaría escribir en el taller. La descripción debe
explicar el alcance e impacto que la lección puede tener en el ámbito de
las humanidades digitales, por qué es importante que otros investigadores
aprendan esa habilidad y por qué el aplicante es la persona idónea para
escribirla.

Algunos de los temas para los tutoriales pueden ser, aunque no se limitan,
a los siguientes:

Digitalización, catalogación y metadatos
OCR, clasificación y anotación
Gestión y procesamiento de datos
Metodologías de mapeo
Lectura distante y análisis de texto
Publicación digital

Cualquier pregunta puede ser enviada a Maria-José Afanador-Llach (Maestría
en Humanidades Digitales, Universidad de los Andes) [
mj.afanador28 at uniandes.edu.co] o Adam Crymble (Departamento de Historia,
University of Hertfordshire) [a.crymble at herts.ac.uk].

La fecha límite para enviar las aplicaciones es el 11 de mayo de 2018.

The Programming Historian invites members of the Spanish-speaking scholarly
community to a 3-day writing workshop, 'Digital Humanities Writing for
Latin America' at the University de los Andes (Bogotá, Colombia), 1-3
August 2018. This unique writing workshop will bring together researchers
from across the humanities to write digital humanities tutorials that
address the needs and scholarly agenda of researchers from Latin American
and the Hispanic world. These will be the amongst the world's first
Spanish-language digital humanities tutorials to be shared with a global
audience.

Participants will work closely with editors at The Programming Historian to
learn about technical writing, grant writing, and digital humanities
publication venues. Substantial time is also set aside for a writing. By
the end of the third day it is expected that participants will have a draft
tutorial to be submitted for peer review at The Programming Historian en
español.

We are grateful to the British Academy for financial support that allows us
to offer up to 15 travel bursaries + hotel to participants from the
following regions:

    2* Central America (£700 each)

    3* Elsewhere in the world (£700)

We welcome applications from Spanish-speaking and Latin American humanities
scholars of all stages of their career. We especially encourage early
career scholars and graduate students to apply. Interested persons should
email a 2-page CV and a 250-word description of a digital humanities
tutorial that they would like to write at the workshop to the following
email: mj.afanador28 at uniandes.edu.co. The description should outline the
scope of the lesson, why it is important for other scholars to learn the
skill, and why you would make a good person to write it.

Topics for the lessons can be but are not limited to the following:

    Digitization, cataloguing and metadata
    OCR, classification and annotation
    Data management and manipulation
    Mapping methodologies
    Distant reading and text analysis

Call for Proposals: New Technologies and Renaissance Studies
RSA 2019, 17-19 March, Toronto

Since 2001, the Renaissance Society of America annual meetings have featured panels on the applications of new technology in scholarly research, publishing, and teaching.  Panels at the 2019 meeting will continue to explore the contributions made by new and emerging methodologies and the projects that employ them.

For 2019, we welcome proposals for papers, lightning talks, panels, and or poster / demonstration / workshop presentations on new technologies and their impact on research, teaching, publishing, and beyond, in the context of Renaissance Studies.  Examples of the many areas considered by members of our community can be found in the list of papers presented at the RSA since 2001 (https://goo.gl/Azdt3p) and in those papers published thus far under the heading of New Technologies and Renaissance Studies (https://goo.gl/S5Q5MN).

Please send proposals before 30 April 2018 to Iter.RSA.NewTechnologies at gmail.com. Your proposal should include a title, a 150-word abstract, and a one-paragraph biographical CV, as well as an indication of whether you would consider or prefer an online presentation. We are pleased to be able to offer travel subventions on a competitive basis to graduate students who present on these panels; those wishing to be considered for a subvention should indicate this in their abstract submission.

We thank Iter: Gateway to the Middle Ages & Renaissance (https://www.itergateway.org) for its generous sponsorship of this series and its related travel subventions since 2001.
