Estimados compañeros:

Desde el comité organizador del III Congreso Internacional de Humanidades
Digitales Hispánicas, queremos informar de la apertura del plazo para la
presentación de propuestas, que se extenderá hasta finales de abril (para más
información: http://hdh2017.es/hdh2017/envio-de-propuestas/). El congreso
tendrá lugar del 18 al 20 de octubre de 2017 Málaga.

El congreso internacional que celebra bianualmente la Sociedad
Internacional de Humanidades Digitales Hispánicas (HDH) constituye el
principal evento científico-académico relacionado con las Humanidades
Digitales que se desarrollan en español, congregando a investigadores,
académicos, profesionales y estudiantes de Europa, América Latina, Estados
Unidos y Canadá.

El desarrollo de las tecnologías computacionales y la expansión del medio
digital han dado lugar a importantes transformaciones desde el punto de
vista social, político, cultural y epistemológico. Las Humanidades
Digitales, como campo de investigación, reflexión crítica y acción, se ha
constituido en uno de los actores fundamentales en este proceso de
transformación, contribuyendo, por una parte, a su propio desarrollo; y
por otra, a su análisis crítico.  De este modo, la práctica de las
Humanidades Digitales nos ayuda a expandir la sociedad contemporánea
imbricándola en los nuevos modos de acceso, producción y distribución del
conocimiento, la cultura, las acciones sociales, los discursos políticos,
etc., pero también a ser conscientes de sus problemas, desequilibrios e
incertidumbres.

El III Congreso Internacional de la HDH quiere centrar la atención en este
papel crucial desempeñado por las Humanidades Digitales, abordando tres
dimensiones fundamentales: sociedades, políticas y saberes. La pregunta
que proponemos es la siguiente: ¿de qué manera las Humanidades Digitales
están contribuyendo –o pueden contribuir- a la transformación de estas
dimensiones en los distintos contextos territoriales y culturales en los
que se desarrollan?

Invitamos pues, a presentar propuestas que profundicen en esta línea de
preguntas –u otras relacionadas con el tema del congreso- desde las cuatro
vertientes que constituyen el núcleo fundamental de las Humanidades
Digitales: reflexión crítica, investigación científico-académica,
prácticas educativas innovadoras y activismo comprometido.

Este congreso también quiere prestar especial atención a las formas
creativas de la cultura digital como espacios de reflexión, investigación
y acción. Serán, pues, especialmente bienvenidas aquellas comunicaciones
que muestren las formas en las que los nuevos medios, las literaturas y
las artes digitales contribuyen al desarrollo de la cultura digital y a la
reflexión crítica sobre sus condiciones.

Submissions open for TEI-C MM and Conference


Dear colleagues,

The Program Committee is pleased to announce that ConfTool is now open 
to accept submissions for the 2017 Members Meeting and Conference of the 
Text Encoding Initiative Consortium. The meeting will be held at the 
University of Victoria, in British Columbia, Canada. Workshops are 
scheduled for November 11 and 12, with the conference on November 13-15.

The cfp that is reproduced here can also be found on the conference 
website http://www.tei-c.org/Membership/Meetings/2017/


   Call for Papers

The Program Committee is pleased to announce its call for proposals for 
the 17th annual Conference and Members Meeting of the Text Encoding 
Initiative Consortium (TEI), which will be held November 13-15, 2017, at 
the University of Victoria, B.C., Canada; with workshops November 11-12.

This year's theme, Pedagogy and Praxis, is particularly apt since we are 
meeting at the home of the widely celebrated Digital Humanities Summer 
Institute.

All TEI-related proposals for individual papers, panel sessions, 
posters, and demonstrations are welcome. Special consideration will be 
given to proposals related to this year's theme, Pedagogy and Praxis.

In teaching and learning TEI, we engage students in real research 
partnerships, giving them opportunities to produce the editions they use 
in the classroom. Yet materials for teaching TEI are still nascent and 
consist mainly of project documentation, the TEI’s own introductory 
materials, online tutorials, and collected examples. The crucial next 
phase of DH work is training. Pedagogy is closely allied to praxis, the 
ways in which ideas become digital objects. The majority of current 
practitioners of TEI have acquired their skills in haphazard ways, via 
what Diane Jakacki has called a “second education.” However, as the 
tools and technologies have matured and the practices have become more 
rigorous and theoretically-inflected, we have a disciplinary obligation 
to develop equally rigorous and standardized training methods for new 
learners. Our CFP therefore invites proposals that interrogate, 
theorize, and model how we might best transform TEI standards into 
collaborative knowledge construction. We encourage submissions that 
describe pedagogical experiments (failed or successful), showcase tools 
and materials that encoding classes will need, propose ways of embedding 
encoding classes into current curricula, theorize the relationship 
between TEI practice and classroom praxis, reflect on what collaboration 
means in the pedagogical environment, describe partnerships between 
classrooms and DH projects, and imagine future training opportunities. 
Our conference theme thus foregrounds the development of skills and 
activities of future scholars.


     Submissions

All submissions should include a title, an abstract, a brief biography 
of all the author(s)/speaker(s), and up to five keywords.

Word counts apply to the text of the abstract, excluding titles, 
biographies and keywords.


     Individual papers

Speakers will be given 30 minutes each: 20 minutes for presentation, 10 
minutes for discussion. Proposals should not exceed 300 words.


     Panel sessions

Panels will be given 90 minutes, which can be used flexibly to include, 
for example, 3 individual papers followed by questions, or a roundtable 
discussion. Panel proposals must include a list of speakers and their 
biographies.

Proposals for 3 papers should not exceed 3 x 300 words, plus a 200-word 
introduction. Proposals for discussion panels should not exceed 600 words.


     Posters

A “poster slam” session will be dedicated to poster presentations of 3 
minutes each. Subsequently, poster presenters will have the chance to 
tell interested parties more about their project during the poster 
exhibition, where the audience can browse freely. Proposals for poster 
presentations should not exceed 300 words.


     Demonstrations

A dedicated demonstration session will provide tool presenters with an 
opportunity to show the tools they are working on and with. Tool 
demonstrators will be given 15 minutes each: 10 minutes for 
presentation, 5 minutes for questions. Proposals for tool demonstrations 
should not exceed 300 words.


     Workshops

Workshops will be held before the conference, November 11-12, 2017. They 
provide an opportunity for participants to work together on TEI-related 
topics. Proposals for workshops should not exceed 800 words and must 
include:

   * A brief outline of the proposed topic and its appeal to the TEI
     community
   * The duration of the proposed workshop or seminar (half day, full day)
   * Any special requirements (e.g. laptops, projector, flipchart)
   * A list of proposed workshop leader(s), with a brief biography of
     each one


     Special Interest Groups (SIGs)

If you are interested in holding a SIG meeting during the conference,

     Language

The proposals must be submitted in English. The preferred conference 
language is English. French is also possible.


     Submission Procedure

Proposals must be submitted online via ConfTool: 
https://emea01.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.conftool.net%2Ftei2017%2F&data=01%7C01%7CWillard.McCarty%40kcl.ac.uk%7Cfb12dcf53a20460e401808d47debc3e7%7C8370cf1416f34c16b83c724071654356%7C0&sdata=WPZvr99yZXNhAbytdTYYgfWwk8Z7HyUztV3DLezOnNg%3D&reserved=0. 

If you have previously had an account on the ConfTool system to submit to a prior TEI conference, your login should still work.

You will need an account to submit a proposal. Participants of the 2016 
TEI Conference and Members Meeting can re-use their ConfTool account.

The deadline for submissions is May 15, 2017.

All proposals will be peer-reviewed by the Program Committee.

We look forward to reading your proposals and to seeing you in Victoria.

Sincerely,

Kathryn Tomasek for the Program Committee
