DH_Budapest_2019

Venue: Centre for Digital Humanities at Eötvös Loránd University (ELTE.DH)

Dates: 25-27 September 2019

Call for Papers

Deadline: 31 May 2019

Notification of Acceptance: 15 July 2019

The Centre for Digital Humanities at Eötvös Loránd University (ELTE.DH) calls for abstracts for its second annual conference which will take place in Budapest, 25–27 September 2019 – in collaboration with the COST Action Distant Reading for European Literary Historyproject and the DARIAH Central European Hub. While last year the conference seeked to survey the current state of research in digital humanities in general, this year DH_Budapest_2019 will keep a narrower focus on theories and practices of distant reading.page1image1012014000

The term distant reading (i.e. using computational methods of analysis for large collections of texts) is meant here in a general sense: regardless of genres and disciplines on the side of the used or built corpus, and regardless of computational methods adopted or developed during the research. We encourage speakers to present their work where innovative, sophisticated, data-driven, computational methods play a key role in a scientifically relevant research.

We invite submission of abstracts on subjects from a variety of fields related to digital humanities and social sciences concerning but not limited to following topics:

  • Corpus building using markup languages
  • Automatic and manual corpus annotation
  • Named entity recognition (NER) and named entity linking (NEL)
  • Wikification, wikiDATA linking
  • Stylometry, authorship attribution
  • Vector spaces and neural networks as distant reading tools
  • Network modelling, prosopographical networks
  • Distant reading of historical sources
  • Digital literacy, digital pedagogy

ESTS Bylaws: New Proposal

Dear Members and old Members of the European Society for Textual Scholarship,

As was communicated at previous board meetings, our Board has been working on a redrafting of our Society’s bylaws. The new proposal is now approved by the Board, and ready to be communicated to the Membership – you will find it attached. As stated in our (previous and newly proposed) bylaws, Members in good standing (i.e. who have paid their Membership dues for 2017/Alcalá or later) reserve the right to vote on changes in the bylaws. That is why we now forward our proposal to see you have any objections to our proposal.

Those who are eligible are invited to respond to the proposed bylaws by forwarding their objections to the Society’s secretary (wout.dillen@uantwerpen.be) within the next two months (i.e. until 18 December 2018). Minor changes that are suggested by the Membership will be discussed by the Board, who will decide whether to adopt or reject the change. Major changes will be added to the draft and returned for consideration by the Membership. In this process, the Board reserves the right to decide what constitutes a ‘minor’ or ‘major’ change. After the period of two months has passed, the Bylaws will be considered as approved by the Membership, unless the Board decides to extend the initial period with a further month.

Although we will accept objections to the bylaws until 18 December, we would strongly encourage Members to respond to this document before this year’s Annual Members’ Meeting takes place (on Saturday 17 November 2018), where the board will reserve a slot for discussing any major changes that may have already come up, directly with the Membership.

We thank you for your input, and look forward to discussing the newly proposed bylaws with you in Prague!

All the best, on behalf of the ESTS board,

Anne Baillot
Isabel de la Cruz Cabanillas
Wout Dillen (secretary)
Jan Gielkens (treasurer)
Sakari Katajamäki
Roland S. Kamzelak</br/>
Anthony Lappin
Elena Pierazzo
Wim Van Mierlo (president)

CFP: GENESIS  –  CRACOW 2019 

via Mateusz Antoniuk

The Faculty of Polish Studies at the Jagiellonian University in Cracow and the Institut des Textes & Manuscrits Modernes (ITEM) in Paris are pleased to invite you to participate in the international conference.

GENESIS  –  CRACOW 2019   

Genetic Criticism: from Theory to Practice
12 – 14 June 2019

Location: Jagiellonian University, Cracow (Poland)
Language: English

Call for papers
Deadline: 1 January 2019
Acceptance notification: February 2019
Registration deadline: 15 May 2019

GENESIS – CRACOW 2019 will be the second edition of a new series of conferences on genetic criticism, understood as the study of the creative process. The first edition, held on 7-9 June 2017 in Helsinki (Finland), was organized by the Finnish Literature Society and Institut des Textes & Manuscrits Modernes in Paris. The participants included scholars from Finland, France, Austria, Belgium, England, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Lithuania, Netherlands, Poland, Russia, Tunisia, Turkey, Wales and Canada.

The Cracow conference, like the Helsinki event, welcomes researchers interested in literature, theatre, music, painting and other fields of human activity in which the creative process is of central importance. Consequently, not only the outcome, but the process itself will be the focus of the conference.

The binary subtitle of the event  “From Theory to Practice” emphasizes the dual profile of the conference, which is meant to serve as a forum for discussion on both theoretical and practical aspects of genetic criticism. We welcome papers presenting broad theoretical perspectives and offering case studies of various texts and phenomena across time and space.
