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.

The cultural products of the last century reflect change, opportunity, and uncertainty, and demonstrate active negotiations between personal identity and social awareness, nationalism and cosmopolitanism, artistic voice and security. This conference, in the centennial year of the Revolution, seeks to explore the transformations set in motion during and after the events of 1917 through an examination of cultural production and practices, located both within and without Russia.

We will explore first and foremost the issue of human migration, particularly the patterns and developments set in motion by the Revolution. In light of today’s desperate discu…

CFP: Accelerated development? Socio-political landslides, cultural ruptures and literary history in Eastern Europe (Ghent University, Ghent, September 29 – October 1, 2017)

CALL FOR PAPERS Accelerated development? Socio-political landslides, cultural ruptures and literary history in Eastern Europe Ghent University September 29 – October 1, 2017

In 1964 the Bulgarian-Belarusian-Russian scholar Georgii Gachev coined the term ‘uskorennoe razvitie’ or ‘accelerated development’ in his 1964 monograph Accelerated Development of Literature: On the Basis of the Bulgarian Literature of the First Half of the 19thCentury. The term describes what happened to Bulgarian literature during Ottoman rule. Being a ‘young’ and ‘peripheral’ literature, having started to develop only recently at the time, Bulgarian literature ‘had to’ go through the whole evolution of European literature at a high pace in order to catch up with the latter. One of the side effects of this accelerated development was that characteristics of different style periods could even co-occur. Gachev’s thought-provoking idea has never really received a l…
