Call for Papers
Bridging Communities: making public knowledge--making knowledge public
2007 Annual Meeting of the Society for Digital 
Humanities / Société pour l'étude des médias interactifs
The Society for Digital Humanities (SDH/SEMI) 
invites scholars and graduate students to submit
proposals for papers and sessions for its annual 
meeting, which will be held at the 2007 Congress of the
Social Sciences and Humanities, University of Saskatchewan, from 28-30 May.
The society would like in particular to encourage 
submissions relating to the central theme of the
Congress–“Bridging Communities”–or its 
sub-theme–“making public knowledge/making knowledge
public.”  Computing in the humanities already has 
a strong history of fostering collaboration in areas of
research that have traditionally been built on 
the model of the solitary scholar.  Digital technology has
enabled networking and collaboration where 
logistics were previously prohibitive, and the digital medium
has accelerated dissemination of knowledge and 
enriched means for delivering complex and diverse
forms of data.  The Internet has further taken 
much scholarly work out of the confines of university
libraries and made it readily accessible to an 
extensive reading public.  While this year’s Congress theme
is well suited to the interests of SDH/SEMI, we 
encourage submissions on all topics relating to both
theory and praxis in the evolving discipline of 
humanities computing. Potential topics include, but are not
limited to:
• Humanities computing as an means of bridging disciplinary communities
• The public and the proprietary in electronic publication
• Virtual communities
• The computer as a generative or analytical tool in humanities research
• Humanities computing and pedagogy
• Digitizing material culture
• Computer supported collaboration
• Computer modeling in humanities research
• The history and future of humanities computing
• Computing in the fine, performing and new media arts
• Facility and large project management
Paper and/or session proposals will be accepted 
until December 15, 2006. Please note that all presenters
must be members of SDH/SEMI at the time of the conference.
Abstracts/proposals should include the following 
information at the top of the front page: title of paper,
author's name(s); complete mailing address, 
including e-mail; institutional affiliation and rank, if any, of
the author; statement of need for audio-visual 
equipment. Abstracts of papers should be between 150 and
300 words long, and clearly indicate the paper's 
thesis, methodology and conclusion.
All abstracts and questions should be sent 
electronically to the addresses below:
Brent Nelson, Conference Committee Chair and 
Local Coordinator, (University of Saskatchewan)
