        Subject: Call For Papers - 2013 Digital Humanities Forum: Return to the Material

The Institute for Digital Research in the Humanities at the University of
Kansas is pleased to announce the call for papers for our Fall 2013 Digital
Humanities Forum. Please distribute widely, and consider submitting a



2013 Digital Humanities Forum: Return to the Material
University of Kansas
September 12-14, 2013

   * Thursday, September 12: Workshops
   * Friday, September 13: THATCamp Kansas
   * Saturday, September 14: Return to the Material conference

Recently digital humanities discussions have returned to a focus on the
material in many senses. Bethany Nowviskie’s talk at MLA 2013—“Resistance
in the Materials” <http://nowviskie.org/2013/resistance-in-the-materials/>
—explored various facets of the material aspects of digital humanities,
including the role of craft and collaboration, the “increasing
casualization of academic labor," and the emergence of digital-to-physical
technologies. KU’s 2013 Digital Humanities Forum will explore these and
related topics in our program “Return to the Material.”

We welcome proposals for 20-minute papers, posters or panel sessions on
topics from your own research that focus on the relationship between the
digital and the material, such as:

* How the digital deforms, reforms, and transforms the material, and
* Innovative computational approaches to the close reading of text, map,
image or audio;
* The implications for humanities scholarship and pedagogy of
digital-to-physical conversion tools, wearable computers, and augmented
reality technologies (e.g. 3-D printing, electronic textiles, Google Glass)
* The future of physical objects and collections in a digital world;
* The materiality of music, art, or film in the digital age;
* Digital humanities as a key mode of addressing technological change;
* The recognition of craft in building, creating and accessing electronic
* How the apparent wild experimentation of DH reveals substantial and
tangible insights;
* and other related topics.

Please submit abstracts of 500 words maximum at:

Proposal Deadline: June 1
Notification: June 15

Questions may be directed to the Institute for Digital Research in the
Humanities, idrh at ku.edu

        Subject: Beyond the Digital: Pattern Recognition and Interpretation. A CFP for MLA 2014


Please share this CFP widely with colleagues and students. It's a late
CFP (mea culpa), and so the ACH, from which the call comes will
benefit from its amplification.

Recent MLA Conventions have featured many sessions about the digital
humanities, considering their impact on methodology, pedagogy,
bibliography, race, and the profession itself. What is sometimes
forgotten, however, is that the output of digital analysis is not
itself the goal; rather, it is a means to an end, and that end is the
interpretation of a text or corpus (understood widely). This session
seeks to re-establish this understanding and conversation,
defamiliarizing the conversation about the digital and making it
re-familiar to the larger body of MLA participants.

This panel will presentations that offer interpretations of texts,
language, literature and/or literary history that definitely began
with a digital approach. Crucially, however, we will ask presenters to
speak not about their methods but instead about their interpretation,
results, and conclusions.

Speakers will give brief talks (5-7 minutes, depending on number of
participants). Speakers will also be invited to write brief blog posts
to be shared on their own websites as well as that of the Association
for Computers and Humanities (ACH) about their methods and approaches.
These posts will be shared at the session but will not form the
subject of the conversation.

Send 300-word abstracts and bio to brian.croxall at emory.edu by 27 March
2013 at 12pm EST. N.B. All panelists will need to be MLA members (or
have their membership waived) by April 7th.

I am organizing this session on behalf of the ACH. Since the ACH is an
allied organization of the MLA, this session is guaranteed for the
2014 MLA.
