Call for papers: 1917 / 2017: DISCIPLINARY REGIMES OF TRUTH

Call for papers 1917 / 2017: DISCIPLINARY REGIMES OF TRUTH School of Advanced Studies, University of Tyumen (http://sas.utmn.ru/) 30 September – 1 October, 2017 The second annual Humanities and Social Sciences Landscape forum will be devoted to the notion of truth in its historical and disciplinary dimensions. We plan to discuss a number of general problems and to zoom in on the case of the Russian Revolution. We invite scholars from different disciplines to reflect on the following set of interrelated issues: -         Modernist truth vs. “post-truth”. How does the dominant notion of truth – if such a thing exists in a society – change over time? -         Different disciplines in social sciences and the humanities operate with different notions of truth. How do these notions relate to and influence each other and how do they evolve over time? -         The “truth of the Russian Revolution” has changed repeatedly over time.

CFP: Digital Humanities 2017 Pre-conference Workshop

CFP: Digital Humanities 2017 Pre-conference Workshop  Shaping Humanities Data: Use, Reuse, and Paths Toward Computationally Amenable Cultural Heritage Collections
Galleries, libraries, archives, and museums (GLAMs) have been building digital collections for decades. Approaches developed to provide access to these collections often emulate analog research experiences that focus on supporting single object interactions and features like virtual "page" turners. While approaches of this kind have been very valuable for some kinds of scholarship, researchers and instructors seeking to leverage computation can find it difficult to work with collections developed in this vein. One barrier to developing approaches that better support these researchers is an incomplete understanding of how humanists, among others, are using and reusing cultural heritage data - and what they may need moving forward. Collections as Data is one of a range of efforts encouraging cultural heritage organizat…

Call for Nominations: 2019 Busa Prize!

Call for Nominations: 2019 Busa Prize https://adho.org/announcements/2017/call-nominations-2019-busa-prize
The Roberto Busa Prize is an award of the Alliance of Digital Humanities Organisations (ADHO). It is named in honour of Father Roberta Busa, the first pioneer of humanities computing, who in 1949 began experiments in linguistic automation, with the support of the IBM offices in New York and Milan, as part of his analytical research on the writings of Thomas Aquinas. The computational work was central to the thirty years of research whose published output was the 56-volume Index Thomisticus, completed in 1980. The Busa award is given to recognise outstanding lifetime achievements in the application of information and communications technologies to humanities research. The award is given every three years, alternating with other ADHO awards, such as the Zampolli award. The first award was given to Father Busa himself in 1998. Subsequent winners have been John Burrows (2…
