        Subject: EpiDoc and digital epigraphy workshop (w/b April 29, London)

We invite applications for a six-day training workshop in digital and
practical epigraphy at the Institute of Classical Studies, University of
London, 29 April - 4 May 2019.

The workshop will be organised by Gabriel Bodard (ICS) and Katherine
McDonald (Exeter), with additional training provided by Charlotte Tupman
(Exeter), Charles Crowther (Oxford), Valeria Vitale (ICS) and Caroline
Barron (Birkbeck). There will be no charge for the workshop. There will
be a limited number of bursaries available to assist students and other
unfunded scholars with the costs of travel and accommodation, provided
by the AHRC Early Career Leadership Fellowship ‘Connectivity and
Competition’ (PI Katherine McDonald).

The focus of the workshop will be on skills for Greek and Latin
epigraphy, including squeeze-making, photogrammetry, reflectance
transformation imaging (RTI), and EpiDoc. EpiDoc (epidoc.sf.net) is a
community of practice, recommendations and tools for the digital editing
and publication of ancient texts based on TEI XML. No expert computing
skills are required, but a working knowledge of Greek/Latin or other
ancient language, epigraphy, and the Leiden Conventions will be assumed.
The workshop is open to participants of all levels, from graduate
students to professors and professionals. Although the focus is on Greek
and Latin epigraphy, we welcome applications from those in other
adjacent fields.

To apply for a place on this workshop please email
k.l.mcdonald@exeter.ac.uk by *Friday 15 February 2019,* including the
following information:

         a brief description of your reason for interest
         your relevant background and experience
         if you would like to request a bursary, an estimate how much
you would need.

If you have any questions before applying, please don’t hesitate to
contact Katherine (k.l.mcdonald@exeter.ac.uk) or Gabby

        From: James Hodges 
        Subject: CFP: Counter-Hegemonic Epistemologies as Innovation and/or Contestation (4S Open Panel)

I think this topic will be of interest to many
in the DH community. We would love to include some projects that use
interesting digital methods and/or subject matter.

This is a call for contributions to 4S Open Panel No. 28: Counter-Hegemonic
Epistemologies as Innovation and/or Contestation
. The official call can be
found below. This open panel could include papers on a myriad of subjects
having to do with different systems of knowledge coming up against one
another, such as the following:

- Silences, Imaginaries, Ethics, and Mistrust: Identifying and Interacting
with Suspicious Researchers in Archives

- Pharmacological Self-Experimentation: How do techniques of
self-quantification shape popular discourses of wellness?

- Indigenous knowledge systems and their relationship to Museums'
institutionalized forms of coloniality

- Looking to Black Mountain College for pedagogical innovation in arts

- Ghost hunting: pseudoscientific methods in the post-truth era

Submissions are due on February 1, 2019.

Please contact the organizers Yvonne Eadon (UCLA), ymeadon@gmail.com; and
James Hodges (Rutgers) James.hodges@rutgers.edu with any questions. Full
CFP text below:

"Resistance to dominant modes of thinking, knowing, and doing can take a
variety of forms -- and often results in the production of new
epistemological communities of practice. The counter-hegemonic
epistemologies of conspiracy theorists, self-experimenters, citizen
scientists, marginalized and oppressed communities, and members of many
other knowledge domains frequently embody narratives and ways of knowing
that run against the dominant paradigms of their social and historical
contexts. Thomas Kuhn's work on paradigm shifts is just one example of the
turmoil around shifts in dominant scientific epistemology. In many cases,
critical or disruptive epistemologies are met by those in power with
skepticism and even fear.

This open panel calls for case studies addressing counter-hegemonic
epistemologies in the fields of history of science and technology, as well
as STS, information studies, education, media studies, and other relevant
disciplines. We are particularly interested in research that brings a
comparative historical perspective to bear on the continuously contested
nature of dominant knowledge systems. Some points to consider could be: how
have specific counter-narratives affected the dominant discourses in the
fields that they challenge? Alternatively, how do dominant discourses
overpower counter-hegemonic epistemologies? What kinds of contexts does
this happen in, and what are the social, political, and historical
implications of such contestation? We welcome submissions that address
communities including but not limited to alternative education, decolonial
science and technology, clandestine chemistry, whistleblowing, harm
reduction, and radical politics. By bringing such disparate ways of knowing
into contact, our panel aims to build towards a robust account of the
innovation and contestation that prevail among counter-hegemonic
epistemological communities."

If you would like to submit, please visit the 4S website and upload your
250-word abstract to 4S Open Panel No. 28: Counter-Hegemonic Epistemologies
asInnovation and/or Contestation
. The deadline is February 1,
2019. We look forward to your contributions!
