Jean Baudrillard: From the Ocean to the Desert - The Poetics of Radicality
by Gerry Coulter 

"I’m European, I’m condemned to a kind of objective historical nihilism, you are
forced to admit to yourself that everything radical you can say or do in this
society will only ever be the radicality of this corrupt society."
Jean Baudrillard

        Subject: CFP: Responding to JLA's DH in Libraries

The editors of dh+lib would like to invite submissions in response to the
recent special issue of the Journal of Library Administration.

As noted earlier on dh+lib, JLA devoted its first issue of 2013 to DH in
libraries. Digital Humanities in Libraries: New Models for Scholarly
Engagement features six articles that address both the theoretical and
practical aspects of how libraries and librarians can engage in DH work.
Micah Vandegrift, Scholarly Communications Librarian at Florida State
University and a co-author of one of the issue’s articles, has assembled
links to the open access versions of the articles.

The issue was guest edited by Barbara Rockenbach, Director of the Humanities
and History Libraries at Columbia University, and featured contributions
from Chris Alen Sula (“Digital Humanities and Libraries: A Conceptual
Model”), Jennifer Vinopal and Monica McCormick (“Supporting Digital
Scholarship in Research Libraries: Scalability and Sustainability”),
Miriam Posner (“No Half Measures: Overcoming Common Challenges to Doing
Digital Humanities in the Library”), Bethany Nowviskie (“Skunks in the
Library: A Path to Production for Scholarly R&D”), Micah Vandegrift and
Steward Varner (“Evolving in Common: Creating Mutually Supportive
Relationships Between Libraries and the Digital Humanities”), and Ben
Vershbow (“NYPL Labs: Hacking the Library”).

As Rockenbach writes: The authors of these articles come from a range of
institutions, medium to large public research universities, large private
research institutions and a public library. This diversity of voices
illustrates the varied landscape of DH in libraries and the great number of
opportunities for supporting this emerging trend in scholarship. The
collection moves from the theoretical to the practical.

This special issue is an important addition to the conversation about DH and
libraries that we hope to develop here at dh+lib. To that end, we are
issuing a CFP for:

- 500-1500 word posts, to be featured on dh+lib, responding to theoverall issue or particular articles or themes;
- proposals to engage the dh+lib community in conversation in response
to the issue, in a form or forum of your choosing (moderated Twitter chat,
blog roundtable with appointed participants, etc).

Please submit a one-paragraph pitch to
dhandlib.acrl at gmail.com.

Deadline for proposals is March 11, 2013. Accepted submissions will
be included in a special series to be published in April.

Special Issue on Computational Models of Narrative
Literary & Linguistic Computing: The Journal of Digital Scholarship in

The past fifteen years has seen a resurgence of interest in a formal 
understanding and computational applications of the phenomenon of 
narrative. Since 1999 there have been more than forty conferences, 
workshops, symposia, and other meetings focusing on applying 
computational and experimental techniques to understanding, using, and 
generating narrative. Researchers across the humanities, social 
sciences, cognitive sciences, and computer sciences have turned their 
attention back to narrative, and are eager to make progress. With this 
momentum, the coming decade promises dramatic advances in the 
understanding of narrative.

With this growing interest and building momentum in mind, Literary & 
Linguistic Computing: the Journal of Digital Scholarship in the 
Humanities (LLC) invites submission for a special issue on the topic of 
“Computational Models of Narrative”.  The issue is so named because we 
believe that a true science of narrative must adhere to the principle 
espoused by Herbert Simon in his book The Sciences of the Artificial: 
that without computational modeling, the science of a complex human 
phenomenon such as narrative will never be successful, and that 
computational models are the proper lingua franca of the scientific 
study of narrative. The purview of the issue, then, is more than just 
the limited body of effort that directly incorporates computer 
simulation: it also includes work from a cognitive, linguistic, 
neurobiological, social scientific, and literary point of view.  The 
special issue is open to any work where the researchers have 
successfully applied their fieldÂ’s unique insights to narrative in a way 
that is compatible with a computational frame of mind. We seek work 
whose results are thought out carefully enough, and specified precisely 
enough, that they could eventually inform computational modeling of 
narrative.  As such, authors should explicitly discuss in their paper 
how their work could support or inform computational modeling.

Full papers should not normally exceed 9,000 words. Shorter articles 
(containing material of a more general nature) should not exceed 5,000 
words and reports on research in progress should not be longer than 
3,000 words.  Authors  should review and conform to the following 

Information for authors: 
Online submissions: 
Self-archiving policy: 

Authors should submit their papers in .doc format (per LLC preferences) 
to Mark Finlayson, the lead editor, at markaf at mit.edu by 27th September 
2013. After this initial submission the editors will signal any major 
problems with style or content.  Revised versions addressing these 
concerns will be due as an online submission to the LLC manuscript 
system on Friday, November 22, 2013. When submitting to the LLC online 
system, authors should explicitly state in their cover letter to the LLC 
editor that their paper is part of this thematic issue. Papers will then 
be peer-reviewed, and final decisions will be issued Friday, February 
14, 2014.  The final copy, including all style and content corrections 
indicated by the editors, will be due Friday, March 14, 2014.  We expect 
the issue to appear as either the 2nd or 3rd issue of the 2014 volume. 
Any questions should be addressed to Mark Finlayson at markaf at mit.edu.
