Please consider submitting proposals for the Our (Digital) Humanity: Storytelling, Media Organizing and Social Justice Conference, April 20-22, 2018.

See https://www.hastac.org/opportunities/our-digital-humanity-storytelling-media-organizing-and-social-justice for more.

Deadline for submitting proposals is November 15, 2017.

As a conclusion to the Mellon Digital Humanities Initiative at Lehigh University, we will be hosting a remarkable conference .

Our (Digital) Humanity: Storytelling, Media Organizing and Social Justice is an innovative community conference that will locate the budding field of digital humanities at the intersection of public humanities, digital scholarship, oral history, “media organizing” & social justice.  Keynote Speakers include Malkia Cyril, Juan González and Suzanne Snider.

The conference will create an inter-generational convergence space for members of social movements, community based public historians, students, and activist-scholars to network, share their digital projects, offer digital capacity building trainings and strengthen collaboration.

This is not your average academic conference.  ODH2018 will emphasize local knowledge, work to create accessible spaces for people inside and outside of the academy, and create a memorable, kid-friendly experience that will include cultural programming and social events in addition to conference sessions and keynotes.

The Call for Participation is open and the deadline to submit proposals is November 15.

Thank you,

        Subject: Digital Contents: Silver Age Spain

Dear Friends and Colleagues:

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

Cheers, Dolores

Sociology and Anthropology of Logic: Past and Present

Workshop organized by Julie Brumberg-Chaumont (LEM/CNRS/PSL, Paris Research 
University) and Claude Rosental (CEMS/IMM/CNRS/EHESS/PSL)

The workshop "sociology and anthropology of logic: past and present" 
intends to explore the various ways in which logic can be approached from a 
sociological or anthropological point of view. We will look into how 
various actors and peoples concretely define and practice logic. Logic will 
not be apprehended according to a fixed definition of what it is or what it 
should be in order to assess its various definitions and practices. 
Instead, we will analyze their possible plurality.
We will focus on both past and present definitions and practices of logic. 
Historical investigations are welcome. In particular, we will discuss how 
philosophy and history of logic might benefit from various methodological 
approaches developed by historians and sociologists of mathematics and 
science over the past 40 years.

The organizers have contributed to this endeavour in various ways. In 
particular, Claude Rosental has been studying contemporary logical 
demonstrations from a sociological point of view. As for Julie 
Brumberg-Chaumont, she launched a programme called "Homo Logicus, Logic at 
the Edges of Humanity: Anthropological, Philosophical and Historical 
Approaches" with Antonella Romano at EHESS in Paris in 2016, and another 
programme called "Social History of Logic in the Middle Ages" with John 
Marenbon (Trinity College, Cambridge) in 2017.

The anthropological dimension of logic may be observed, for example, in the 
debates that Lévy-Bruhl's notion of "pre-logical mentality" of indigenous 
peoples has generated for more than a century. Anthropologists and other 
actors have often referred to logical skills to define the boundaries of 
humanity. Depending on their more or less open definitions of logic, they 
have included a limited or a large number of humans within these 
boundaries. Testing codified logical skills - Aristotelian and traditional 
logic in the past, thinking skill assessment (TSA) today - has been used 
since the Middle Ages as a way to select individuals in higher education 
institutions and/or as a means for excluding "logically disabled" groups in 
relationship to their so-called "social or racial inferiority." A 
sociological approach to the history of logic implies that logic is not 
only a set of theories and doctrines, but also a tool for action that 
individuals use in different institutional, political, and social settings.

Several authors have contributed to approaching logic this way. For 
instance, David Bloor's work inspired Irving Anellis and Ivor 
Grattan-Guiness's criticisms of the notion of the "Fregean revolution." The 
"social history of logic" programme developed by Volker Peckaus and 
Christian Thiel in the 1980s also illustrates this trend.

Papers are expected to cover one of the following topics: 

-Logic and the Boundaries of Humanity 
-Social Studies of Logic 
-Anthropological History of Logic 
-Selecting Humans Based on their Logical Skills 
-Ethnologic and Ethnomathematics 
-History of Logic and History of Anthropology 

Abstracts (one page) should be sent by October 5, 2017 via e-mail to:
