Call for Project Proposals: Institute for Liberal Arts Digital Scholarship (ILiADS).

Institute for Liberal Arts Digital Scholarship (ILiADS)
July 24 – 29, 2016 at Hamilton College

Call for Project Proposals

A partnership of 23 liberal arts collaboratively developed the Institute for Liberal Arts Digital Scholarship ILiADS (ILiADS.org). IliADS is project-based and team-based; it offers an opportunity for focused support of a digital project – your project – as you work alongside other colleagues and experts.  ILiADS (ILiADS.org) offers participants a summer institute where they may develop projects as a team (faculty, student, librarian, technologist, other experts) and also interact with experts who can further their project goals. Unique to ILiADS and recognizing the role digital scholarship plays in undergraduate education, priority will be given to proposals that include student collaborators. Project proposals at any stage, idea through to implementation, are welcome. Our ILiADS Coaches will guide project teams from the point at which their proposal is accepted to the end of the institute week. During the summer institute week, teams will spend significant time working on their projects and coaches will connect teams to experts in the digital methods and the technologies necessary for the teams to develop their project goals, processes, and outcomes. ILiADS 2015 participants described their experiences as, an opportunity to “focus as a project team” in the planning and development of digital teaching and/or research projects in a setting that “fills a gap in our current professional development milieu.”
At ILiADS, ideas grow through collaborative, iterative processes. During this week, teams composed of some mix of researchers, librarians, technologists, and students are invited to build upon established digital pedagogy or research projects and/or launch new ones. Whether you’re learning how to clear significant hurdles or you’re just getting off of the ground, ILiADS’ Experts will consult with teams to advance their goals. Over the course of the week, team members will learn more about their own collaboration and how to sustain their project into the future. Projects of all types, and at any juncture, are welcomed. Submit your project proposal by February 22, 2016. Upon acceptance, an ILiADS Coach will be in touch to discuss the project ideas, expertise needs, and to answer questions on how to build a strong team.
We have reached out to a group of vetted experts, but we are also open to bringing in other experts based on compelling needs of projects.

Some of these comics might be sensitive to their viewers. I would advise viewer’s discretion.

Call for papers
‘Rethinking Revolutions’ - London School of Economics - 26th May 2017

Over the past twenty years, the study of revolution has lost the centrality it once enjoyed. Yet the study of revolutions has never been so important: in thinking through the aftermath of the Arab uprisings, exploring the ideology of ISIS and other Islamist groups, understanding self-proclaimed revolutionary movements in the West, and interpreting the experience of states that continue to see themselves as revolutionary, such as China, Iran, and Cuba. The study of revolution needs to catch up with the actual experience of revolutionary movements and states.

One barrier to this endeavor is the fracturing of the study of revolutions into different disciplines and sub-fields. This workshop seeks to bring together scholars and students working on revolutions from different disciplinary backgrounds (e.g. Sociology, International Relations, History, and Political Science), sub-fields (e.g. social movements…
