        Subject: 4th Annual Nebraska Digital Workshop


The Center for Digital Research in the Humanities (CDRH) at the University 
of Nebraska-Lincoln (UNL) will host the fourth annual Nebraska Digital 
Workshop on October 2 & 3, 2009, and seeks proposals for digital 
presentations by pre-tenure faculty, post-doctoral fellows, and advanced 
graduate students working in the digital humanities. 

The goal of the Workshop is to enable the best early career scholars in 
digital humanities to present their work in a forum where it can be 
critically evaluated, improved, and showcased.  Under the auspices of the 
Center, the Workshop will bring nationally recognized senior scholars in 
digital humanities to UNL to participate and work with the selected 
scholars.  Selected scholars will receive full travel reimbursement and an 
honorarium for presenting their work at the Nebraska Digital Workshop.

Selection criteria include: significance in primary disciplinary field, 
technical innovation, theoretical and methodological sophistication, and 
creativity of approach. 

Please send proposed workshop abstract, curriculum vitae, and a 
representative sample of digital work via URL or disk on or before April 
24, 2009 to: Katherine L. Walter, Co-Director, UNL Center for Digital 
Research in the Humanities, at kwalter1-AT-unl.edu or 319 Love Library, UNL, 
Lincoln, NE 68588-4100.

        Subject: Digital Scholarly Editing Spring School: Registration Open


Date: 13 - 17 April 2009
Venue: Moore Institute, National University of Ireland, Galway
Co-Directed by Dr Susan Schreibman and Professor Sean Ryder
URL: http://dho.ie/dse2009

The DHO and the Moore Institute are delighted to host a week-long spring school on the topic of digital scholarly editing. This event, the first of its kind in Ireland, will provide Irish researchers the opportunity to engage with cutting edge theories, methods, and technologies through a mixture of specialised workshops, masterclasses, and project consultations. Workshop tracks will cater to those who have some experience in digital scholarly editing as well as to the novice.

Morning lectures and afternoon master classes will be given by international experts in addition to three workshop strands. Two of the strands are for those with some experience of text encoding:  TEI Encoding for Digital Scholarly Editions of Printed Texts, and Encoding Manuscripts and Other Handwritten Materials. The third strand is for those with no experience, aptly titled  An Absolute Beginner's Introduction to the TEI for Scholarly Editions.

Lectures and Master Classes will be given by international experts in digital scholarly editing, including  John Bryant (Hofstra University, USA), Dino Buzzetti (University of Bologna, Italy), Fotis Jannidis (Technical University of Darmstadt, Germany), John Lavagnino (Kings College London, UK), Kenneth Price (University of Nebraska, USA), Edward Vanhoutte (Royal Academy of Dutch Language and Literature, Belgium).

Participants will have many opportunities to interact with teaching staff both formally and informally, as well as exchange knowledge across projects enabling the building of networks that are vital for this kind of multi-disciplinary and team-based research.

This event has been generously funded with a grant from the Irish Research Council for the Humanities and the Social Sciences (IRCHSS).

Advance registration is required and places are limited. See http://dev.dho.ie/dse2009 for further details

Early Registration Available until  Feb. 9, 2009 for Computer Applications to Archaeology 2009 (March 22-26, 2009, Williamsburg, Virginia)!

The 37th annual CAA conference will be held from 22 to 26 March 2009 in Williamsburg, Virginia (USA) and will bring together students, researchers, heritage managers and other experts to present, examine and discuss current theory and application of quantitative methods and information technologies in Archaeology (www.caa2009.org<http://www.caa2009.org/>).  The hosts of CAA 2009 are The Colonial Williamsburg Foundation and the Institute for Advanced Technology in the Humanities at the University of Virginia. Over 250 papers and posters have been accepted for presentation.  The preliminary program can be downloaded at: www.caa2009.org/CAA2009_PrelimSched012909.pdf<http://www.caa2009.org/CAA2009_PrelimSched012909.pdf>.

The CAA conference has established a strong tradition of international, open communication and exchange that crosses boundaries between archaeologists and colleagues working in quantitative fields such as mathematics and computer science. The conference also regularly attracts students, researchers and practitioners from geography, geomatics, life sciences, physical anthropology, museum studies, field archaeology and others. In 2009, CAA will co-meet with ECAI, the Electronic Cultural Atlas Initiative (www.ecai.org/<http://www.ecai.org/>). It will also offer optional short, introductory courses in the use of equipment (such as 3D scanners), hardware, and software typically used by digital archaeologists today.

The deadline for early registration is Feb. 10, 2009. To register online and reserve a hotel room, please go to:  www.caa2009.org/ConfRegistration.cfm<http://www.caa2009.org/ConfRegistration.cfm>.

For further information, please contact Prof. Bernard Frischer, Director, IATH, University of Virginia (bernard.d.frischer-AT-gmail.com<mailto:bernard.d.frischer-AT-gmail.com>)

Digital Classicist Work-in-Progress Seminars (London, 2009)

Call for Presentations

The Digital Classicist will once more be running a series of 
Work-in-Progress seminars in Summer 2009, on the subject of research 
into the ancient world that has an innovative digital component. We are 
especially interested in work that involves equal collaboration with a 
computer scientist or that would be considered serious research in the 
Computing field as well as Classics, Archaeology, and/or Ancient History.

The Work-in-Progress seminars run on Friday afternoons from June to 
August in Senate House, London, and are sponsored by the Institute for 
Classical Studies (UofL), the Centre for Computing in the Humanities 
(KCL), the Centre for e-Research (KCL), and the British Library. In 
previous years collected papers from the DC WiP seminars have been 
published in a special issue of an online journal (2006), edited as a 
printed volume (2007), and released as audio podcasts (2008); we 
anticipate similar publication opportunities for future series.

Please send a 300-500 word abstract to gabriel.bodard-AT-kcl.ac.uk by March 
31st 2009. We shall announce the full programme in April.

Best regards,

Gabriel Bodard (CCH)
