Girls & Digital Culture: Transnational Reflections
*Registration now open*

An international interdisciplinary conference hosted by the Centre for
Culture, Media and Creative Industries and the Department of Digital
Humanities, King¹s College, London.

Dates: 13/14th September 2012
Location: King¹s College London, Strand Campus

This conference seeks to bring together current research exploring the
relationship between contemporary girlhood and digital culture, in a
transnational frame.  Drawing on approaches from the arts, humanities and
social sciences the conference will look at how contemporary
transformations and transnational interconnections may be challenging
existing social and cultural categories, power structures and global
hegemonies. The conference will address the following questions:
€ What are the key debates in current research on girls, young women and
digital culture?
€ How are girls using new digital technologies?
€ How do ideas and practices move across national borders?

€ Is digital culture global culture?

€ How might a transnational lens raise new questions, and what new ideas
does it make thinkable?
€ How does the development of new digital technologies affects notions and
experiences of girlhood?
€ What effects do transnational interconnections have on girlhood and
digital culture?

Speakers include:

Lisa Nakamura, University of Illinois
Shani Orgad, LSE
Jessica Ringrose, Institute of Education
Rupa Huq, Kingston University
Kalpana Wilson, SOAS
Simidele Dosekun, King¹s College London

Perth, Western Australia 25-28th March 2013

The CAA2013 PERTH conference 'Across Space and Time' will be held at
the University Club of Western Australia from Tuesday 26 – Thursday 28
March 2013. Workshops will be held on Monday 25 March on the UWA

CAA (Computer Applications and Quantitative Methods in Archaeology) is
the premier international conference for all aspects of computing,
quantitative methods and digital applications in Archaeology. With a
history going back to 1972, CAA encourages participation from
scholars, specialists and experts in the fields of archaeology,
history, cultural heritage, digital scholarship, GIS, mathematics,
semantic web, informatics and members of other disciplines that
complement and extend the interests of CAA.

For further information about this exciting interdisciplinary
conference see the website http://caa2013.org

Call for Papers and Posters

The CAA 2013 Organising Committee invites proposals for papers and
posters relating to all aspects of computer applications, quantitative
methods and digital applications in Archaeology and Cultural Heritage.

Paper and Poster proposals are due by 10th October 2012 (UTC).

Conference sessions

The conference will be comprised of over 40 sessions and workshops.
The main themes of the conference include the following:

-          Field and laboratory data recording

-          Data management, analysis and the semantic web

-          3D modelling, visualisation and simulations

-          Spatio-temporal modelling and GIS

-          Remote sensing (long and short range)

-          Users and interfaces: multimedia, museums and education

-          Cultural heritage management and interpretation.

Papers which do not fit within any of the specified sessions may be
submitted to the General Session and may be reassigned by the Review
Committee as appropriate.

The list of proposed sessions and workshop is available online:



The CAA 2013 Conference will include several formats for the delivery
of content, including the following:

- Paper sessions

Long paper sessions (LP):

A conventional format session of related 20 minute papers with 10
minute question time. Papers should present new and ground-breaking

Focus sessions (FS):

A session consisting of thematically-related 5 minute key-point
presentations, an optional discussant to pull the theme together,
followed by a room-based breakout organised around posters or demos
presenting additional information to maximise networking. Note: Focus
Session papers are not ‘short papers’, they are regarded as full

- Roundtables

A panel addressing a specific topic or issue, coordinated by one or
more individuals. Presentations of the speakers will normally be
followed by a discussant and general discussion.

- Posters

A poster session will provide an opportunity for preliminary work to
be presented and discussed directly with the presenter.

All research presented at CAA2013, regardless of the delivery format,
may be submitted after the conference for publication in the peer
reviewed conference proceedings.

- Workshops:

The conference will include a number of half and full day
pre-conference workshops. Workshops will generally include practical
work or other active participation of attendees.

        Subject: Taking TEI Further: Transforming and Publishing TEI Data (deadline approaching)

The September 1 application deadline is coming soon for:

Taking TEI Further: Transforming and Publishing TEI Data
Brown University, December 10-12, 2012
Application deadline: September 1, 2012

**Travel funding is available of up to $500 per participant, up to $1000 for
graduate student participants.**

XSLT is a crucial tool for those working with the TEI, both as a key part of
any XML publication system and also as a technology for manipulating and
managing XML data. As a programming language that can be used to transform
XML data into other formats, it is immensely powerful and also comparatively
approachable for those already familiar with XML. For individual scholars
and librarians (who may not have access to technical support or programmer
time), XSLT can be a remarkably enabling skill, making it possible for them
to create usable output in a variety of formats, including HTML, formats
used by visualization software, and even PDF. The challenge for digital
humanists is not in finding XSLT resources; because it is such an important
technology, there are numerous tutorials online and workshops available.
However, these materials and events are almost universally aimed at an
industry audience, rather than at humanities scholars. What we seek to do in
these seminars is provide an introduction to XSLT that is aimed at a
scholarly audience, using examples from real humanities data and approaching
the topic from the perspective of those who may be familiar with the TEI and
XML, but not with other programming languages. This seminar will provide
participants with an understanding of the essential concepts of XSLT,
focusing on examples and use cases from TEI data in the humanities. We will
also help participants learn how to use simple templates to create more
complex XSLT stylesheets, and how to reuse and reverse engineer stylesheets
from other projects.

These seminars are part of a series funded by the NEH and conducted by the
Brown University Women Writers Project. They are aimed at people who are
already involved in a text encoding project or are in the process of
planning one, and are intended to provide a more in-depth look at specific
challenges in using TEI data effectively. Each event will include a mix of
presentations, discussion, case studies using participants' projects,
hands-on practice, and individual consultation. The seminars will be
strongly project-based: participants may present their projects to the
group, discuss specific challenges and solutions, and get advice on thorny
problems. We encourage project teams and collaborative groups to apply,
although individuals are also welcome. A basic knowledge of the TEI
Guidelines and some prior experience with text encoding will be assumed.
