Digital Classics Association

Call for papers for the January 4-7, 2018 meeting of the Society for Classical Studies in Boston

“Digital Textual Editions and Corpora”

Organizer: Neil Coffee, University at Buffalo, SUNY ncoffee at buffalo.edu

The discovery, editing, and publication of classical texts has been a foundational activity in the study of antiquity. The creation of born-digital editions of classical texts and of digital textual corpora has led to a resurgence of interest in the curation and editing of texts, so that they can be made more broadly accessible online and enhanced with features only possible through digital representation. The aim of this panel is to inform the SCS membership and engage them in a discussion regarding the current state of the art in the curation and publication of digital editions and corpora, as well as likely future directions. Abstracts are invited in two complementary areas. Scholars with experience working with contemporary digital editions and corpora are invited to discuss their experience. This might involve creating a digital edition or corpus, or it might involve a research project that intensively engaged with one. Scholars who have set up digital corpora and/or editing environments, or who work on conventions or other software that underlie such corpora are invited to relate their experience as well. Papers can address completed work, but can also be devoted partly or entirely to ongoing work, problems, or challenges.

Anonymous abstracts of no more than 400 words should be sent to digitalclassicsassociation at gmail.com, with identifying information in the email. Abstracts will be refereed anonymously in accordance with SCS regulations. Submitters should confirm in their emails that they are SCS members in good standing. Abstracts should follow the formatting guidelines of the instructions for individual abstracts on the SCS website. The deadline for the submission of abstracts is March 1, 2017.

        Subject: Call for Proposals: Exploring the Edges & Pushing the Boundaries of Digital Humanities | Digital Frontiers 2017 | 9/21-23/2017

Digital Frontiers <https://digital-frontiers.org/> is an annual conference that explores advances and research in humanities and cultural memory through the lenses of digital scholarship, technology, and multidisciplinary discourse. Digital Frontiers 2017 <https://digital-frontiers.org/conference/2017/> will take place September 21-23, 2017, at the University of North Texas in Denton.

The program committee of Digital Frontiers invites members of the digital humanities community to propose programs that illustrate the creative and collaborative work that is developing in this exciting field. Program content may cover research and projects involving humanities-related new technologies or tools, re-thinking processes or methods, pioneering approaches, surprising partnerships, previously-untapped audiences, innovative uses of digital humanities resources, or intriguing combinations of these characteristics. Proposals that highlight efforts to promote social justice, to involve under-represented groups, or to engage communities outside the academy will be especially welcomed.

The committee encourages contributions from anyone who creates or uses digital collections or tools for humanities work, including scholars, historians, educators, genealogists, archivists, technologists, scientists, librarians, curators, and students. We welcome submissions from local and regional historical and genealogical societies, and anyone working in the public humanities to serve the community of practice with which Digital Frontiers identifies.

For complete submission guidelines, view the Call for Proposals<https://digital-frontiers.org/conference/2017/info/call-proposals>.

Deadline: April 28, 2017
