2 May 2018, 11.00am - 5.00pm
Institute of Classical Studies, Senate House

This one-day training event is targeted at research postgraduates, early
career researchers and interested colleagues in classics and related
disciplines. The workshop will introduce participants to a range of digital
approaches to ancient text, language and literature, including digitisation
and correction, markup (such as EpiDoc), scholarly annotation, name
extraction, linguistic encoding, querying and publication. Hands-on
practice of a few key methods will be offered. No previous digital
experience is assumed, but participants will need to bring their own
laptop, and install some software in advance.

There is no charge to attend, but places are limited and registration is
essential. To apply for this workshop, please write to
valerie.james at sas.ac.uk by April 27 2018.

We invite applications for the New Scholars Seminar 2018 (NSS18) in Mexico City. The NSS18 will be part of DH 2018 taking place before the conference. It is a full day ‘unconference’ for new scholars convened by Rachel Hendery, Geoffrey Rockwell, Elise Bohan, and Juan Steyn with support from the Kule Institute for Advanced Study.

What is the New Scholars Seminar?

The NSS18 is an unconference event on Monday 25 June preceding the DH2018 conference. The NSS is for new scholars to meet and develop research collaborations in the digital humanities. The agenda for the unconference events will be set by the participants. This year, we will continue the mentoring component. Participants in the NSS18 will be matched, where possible, with senior scholars in their area as a ‘mentor’ during the rest of the DH2018 conference. This is a great opportunity to meet and discuss your work with an international leader in your discipline. While no travel funding is available through the NSS this year, the seminar has no registration charge (participants are however expected to attend DH 2018 and pay the conference registration fee).

Who should participate?

For the purposes of this seminar a "new scholar" is defined as someone who is either a graduate student or someone who has received their PhD within the last 5 years (or longer if a case is made for career interruption). Postdoctoral fellows and people in alternative academic positions are welcome to apply.  Participation will be by reviewed application.

How does one apply?

Applications are due by May 18th. Applications include i) a short (up to one-page) Statement of Research that outlines your research interests in digital humanities; and ii) a (maximum two-page) CV. Applications should be sent to the Kule Institute for Advanced Study <kias at ualberta.ca <mailto:kias at ualberta.ca>> at the University of Alberta.  

New Scholars Seminar Programme

The programme for the seminar will be developed by the participants once accepted and coordinated by the Kule Institute for Advanced Study. The idea is to empower new scholars to develop their own research directions and collaborations.
