        Subject: CfP: EUSN 2017 in Mainz with session on historical and archaeological networks, deadline: March 31st


Organized session at the 3rd European Conference on Social Networks at Johannes
Gutenberg-University Mainz, 26.-29. September 2017

Call for Presentations
"Networks in Archaeology and History"

Over the last decades, network analysis has made its way from a fringe
theory to an established methodology in archaeological and historical
research that goes beyond a purely metaphorical use of the network term. A
substantial number of studies on different topics and periods have shown
that network theories and methods derived from other disciplines (e.g.
sociology, economics, physics) can be fruitfully applied to selected bodies
of historical and archaeological sources. Yet in many of these initial
studies, important methodological concerns regarding the underlying sources,
missing data, data standardization and representation of networks in space
and time have not been adequately acknowledged and sometimes even completely
neglected.

In recent years, archeologists and historians – often in collaboration and
in exchange with scholars from other disciplines – have taken on the
challenge to address these methodological concerns and to adapt and refine
network methods and network theory for archaeological and historical
research. The aim of this session is to further develop such
transdisciplinary collaboration between historians, archaeologists and the
EUSN research community.

The session invites contributions from researchers applying methods of
formal network analysis in archaeological or historical research. A special
emphasis of the session will be on the unique challenges that arise in the
domain- specific application of these research methods. We welcome
submissions on any period, geographical area or topic. The authors may be
historians or archaeologists as well as scholars from other disciplines
working with historical or archeological data.

Abstract submission:

Please hand in your abstract via the conference website (http://
www.eusn2017.uni-mainz.de/) and indicate the name of the session: "Networks
in Archaeology and History".

Abstract submission deadline is March 31st.

# About the Workshop

LaTeCH-CLfL 2017 will put in the same room two events with a similar research focus and with some tradition: the SIGHUM Workshops on Language Technology for Cultural Heritage, Social Sciences, and Humanities (LaTeCH, https://sighum.wordpress.com/events/latech-2016/) and the ACL Workshops on Computational Linguistics for Literature (CLfL, https://sites.google.com/site/clfl2016/).

# Invited Speaker

LaTeCH-CLfL 2017 will feature an invited talk. Andrew Piper from McGill University will speak about characterisation in literary texts.

We invite contributions on these, and closely related, topics:

- adapting NLP tools to Cultural Heritage, Social Sciences, and to the humanities including literature;
- fully- or semi-automatic creation of semantic resources;
- automatic error detection and cleaning of textual data;
- building and analyzing social networks of literary characters;
- complex annotation schemas, tools and interfaces;
- dealing with linguistic variation and non-standard or historical use of language;
- discourse and narrative analysis/modelling, notably in literature;
- emotion analysis for the humanities and for literature;
- generation of literary narrative, dialogue or poetry;
- identification and analysis of literary genres;
- linking and retrieving information from different sources, media, and domains;

        Subject: DH in Singapore

Dear all,

We are organizing a DH meeting at the National Library of Singapore this Thursday 9 February at 4pm. We have reached out to everyone we know who is doing DH in Singapore but if you here and our invitations failed to reach you, please drop me an email at m.escobar at nus.edu.sg and come join us this Thursday.

Best,
Miguel
