        Subject: EpiDoc Workshop -- Brown University, Oct. 5-6

Dear Colleagues,

We are pleased to announce a 1.5 day Introduction to EpiDoc workshop at Brown University on Oct. 5-6, to be held in conjunction with the conference "Visible Words: Epigraphy in a Global Perspective," taking place Oct. 6-7 (for more information on the conference itself, please see https://www.brown.edu/academics/classics/visible-words-workshop).

This workshop will provide an introduction to the EpiDoc schema for editing epigraphic and papyrological texts. EpiDoc (epidoc.sf.net<http://epidoc.sf.net/>) is a community of practice as well as a specialized customization of the XML schema developed by the Text Encoding Initiative (TEI) for the encoding of inscriptions, papyri and other ancient texts. It has been used to publish digital epigraphic projects including Inscriptions of Aphrodisias (http://insaph.kcl.ac.uk http://insaph.kcl.ac.uk/ ), the US Epigraphy Project (http://usepigraphy.brown.edu http://usepigraphy.brown.edu/ ),the Duke Databank of Documentary Papyri (http://papyri.info/), the Digital Corpus of Literary Papyri (https://wiki.digitalclassicist.org/Digital_Corpus_of_Literary_Papyri), and many more. The workshop will introduce participants to the basics of XML markup and give hands-on experience of tagging textual features and object descriptions, identifying and linking to external person and place authorities, and project workflow and management.

Draft Schedule: http://goo.gl/VNNhBE

The workshop is limited to 25 participants, so we ask you to please fill out the application form: https://goo.gl/forms/Qxf8lnNiwuZJQZd02.

Instructors will include Scott DiGiulio (Mississippi State University), Elli Mylonas (Brown University); Hugh Cayless (Duke University); Tom Elliot (NYU) and others.?

The Listening Experience Database Project Conference 2018

*"The experience of listening to music: methodologies, identities,

6-7 March 2018, The Open University, Milton Keynes, UK

Following on from the inaugural conference in 2015, the Listening
Experience Database project team is pleased to announce the second project

The Listening Experience Database (LED) Project www.open.ac.uk/Arts/LED is
detecting evidence of personal experiences of listening to music, and
gathering them in a database with the aim of establishing an evidential
base for the exploration of the way music has impacted on people in the

The impact of music on individuals has been studied in different ways by
psychologists, anthropologists, ethnomusicologists, social scientists,
social and cultural historians and musicologists, and this conference aims
to bring together several of these perspectives and methodologies.

Our keynote speakers are Professor Stephanie Pitts and Professor Dave

Proposals are invited for papers of up to 20 minutes (followed by 10
minutes of discussion), and panel sessions of up to 90 minutes.

We are interested in receiving proposals on a wide range of topics
irrespective of period, musical genre or culture, but papers must have the
experience of listening to music as a central feature. The following list
of topics is not prescriptive, but may be taken as a guide:
• The musical experience and identities
• The social contexts of listening
• The musical experience and social class
• Methodologies for understanding listening
• How the evidence of listening experiences informs scholarly inquiry

Proposals should include:
• The name(s) and institutional affiliation(s) of the participant(s)
• Title of the paper
• Abstract (250 words)
• Short biographical note (100 words per participant)
• Any technical requirements beyond standard PowerPoint presentation

The deadline for abstracts is 01 October 2017. Please email your proposal
to FASS-listening-experience at open.ac.uk

Proposals will be reviewed and notifications of acceptance sent out by the
end of October 2017.

Registration will open in November 2017. All speakers apart from keynote
speakers and LED project team members will be required to register.

Please feel free to address any queries to the conference organisers, Helen
Barlow and Simon Brown, at FASS-listening-experience at open.ac.uk

About the HathiTrust Research Center and the HTRC UnCamp:

The HTRC is a collaborative research center launched jointly by Indiana University and the University of Illinois, along with the HathiTrust Digital Library, to help meet the technical challenges of dealing with massive amounts of digital text that researchers face by developing cutting-edge software tools and cyberinfrastructure to enable advanced computational access to the growing digital record of human knowledge.

In years past, the HTRC UnCamp has brought researchers, developers, instructors, and information professionals together to showcase innovative research, participate in hands-on coding and demonstration sessions, and build community around themes of computational text analysis, digital humanities, and digital pedagogy.

        Subject: Silver Age Spain and Digital Humanities

Dear friends:

A group of researchers interested in libraries, collections and digital
editions linked to the Silver Age of Spanish culture (1868-1936) will
present a panel at the Congress of Hispanic Digital Humanities
 http://www.hdh2017.es/  to be held in Malaga from 18 to 20 October 2017.

Our objective is to expose to the scientific community the work developed
by four international research groups that are contributing novel
approaches, open readings and historiographic alternatives on the cultural
reality of this time.

We get in touch with you because we would like to make a Panel State of the
Art to present results from other research groups working with *digital
content of the Silver Age.

Anyone interested, please write to dromero at filol.ucm.es
