        Subject: Early stage researcher positions at the working papers event "Downstream from the digital humanities"

The ESF-funded NeDiMAH (nedimah.eu) project's Working group on Scholarly
Publishing is looking to recruit researchers, in particular early stage
researchers, to contribute to its upcoming event "Downstream from the
Digital Humanities," to be held on 26-27 May in Zadar, Croatia.

*Downstream from the Digital Humanities *will be an opportunity to trace
current debates in the digital humanities and beyond about changes in our
systems of publication, communication and evaluation back to their roots,
so as to understand where the systemic changes in the scholarly
communications landscape have been addressed, and where their impact is yet
to be assimilated.

This event has been developed as a working papers session. Rather than
hearing a paper for the first time, all papers will be pre-circulated and
read in advance by workshop participants. These papers have already been
solicited and prepared: we are now recruiting a second cohort of active
participants who, working in pairs, will develop responses to two
thematically linked papers and, more importantly, support and shape the
ensuing discussion by formulating questions about the papers and the issues
they address and potentially pointing toward further avenues for developing
the arguments.

Early stage researchers who reside in a NeDiMAH partner country (see
http://www.nedimah.eu/Contributing-Organisations) will be funded for their
participation.  Students currently working on their PhDs or who have
recently graduated are strongly encouraged to apply for these positions.  We
would also welcome participants involved in academic communications but
from outside of the usual academic circles, eg from the publishing,
evaluation, policy or funding agencies or companies.

Applicants for these positions should send a brief statement (less than 500
words)  regarding their research and their interests in scholarly
publishing/policy/communications by 30th April to Jennifer Edmond at (
edmondj at tcd.ie).
