         Subject: DRHA 2008: New Communities of Knowledge and Practice (fwd)]

The DRHA (Digital Resources in the Humanities and Arts) conference is
held annually at an academic venue in the UK. The conference theme
this year is to promote discussion around new collaborative
environments, collective knowledge and redefining disciplinary
boundaries. The conference, hosted by Cambridge with its fantastic
choice of conference venues, will take place from Sunday 14th
September to Wednesday 17th September.

Visit the Conference website at for
information on registration. Keynote talks will be given by:

* Sher Doruff, Research Fellow (Art, Research and Theory Lectoraat)
and Mentor at the Amsterdam School for the Arts
* Alan Liu, Professor of English, University of California Santa Barbara
* Sally Jane Norman, Director of the Culture Lab, Newcastle University.

Plus round table discussions, a panel relating to 'Second Life' and a
special forum on 'Engaging research and performance through pervasive
and locative arts projects' together with an open discussion led by
Steve Benford, Professor of Collaborative Computing, University of
Nottingham. There will be particular emphasis on interdisciplinary
collaboration and theorising around practice. Installations and
performances will focus on the same theme.

Cambridge's venues range from the traditional to the contemporary all
situated within walking distance of central departments, museums and
galleries. The conference will be based around Cambridge University's
Sidgwick Site, particularly the West Road concert hall.
