Subject: Digital Medieval Studies @ IMC2020, CfP (59)  From: Anna Marie Roos Subject: Collecting and Collections: Digital Lives and Afterlives, 14-15 November 2019 (75) -------------------------------------------------------------------------- Date: 2019-09-12 09:27:43+00:00 From: Georg Vogeler Subject: Digital Medieval Studies @ IMC2020, CfP Dear Medievalists, Digital methods are by definition at the border of Medieval Studies. This bold statement is primarily justified by the observation that the application of digital methods is triggered by a research community outside Medieval Studies, i.e. Computer Science and New Media Studies. Therefore, in its interdisciplinary nature digital medieval studies is a border-crossing discipline and breaks up traditionally developed scholarly silos and institutional borders. The experimentation with and application of new methods and technologies challenges traditional perceptions and research approaches. Another kind of digital boarders are "metadata borders". For example, digital cataloging standards create unintended, and sometimes intended borders and boundaries, that prevent data-sharing and linking. In the light of this proposition the Digital Medievalist will take the opportunity of next years' general IMC theme ("Borders") to discuss cutting edge and "border-crossing" digital methods and technologies and/or borders and boundaries caused by digital methods. Topics may include current research in machine learning, computer vision, 3D modeling, IIIF, multispectral imaging, Handwritten Text Recognition, Linked Data and distant reading, etc. Machine learning, for instance, poses specific problems for Medieval Studies, as its success depends on the availability, findability, reusability, and accessibility of large amounts of data. Similar issues exist with the application of other digital methods to medieval material and the session(s) "Digital Borders of Medieval Studies" will be the place to present and discuss them. The Digital Medievalist community invites the submission of proposals for 20-minutes papers covering a topic relating to the session title and focusing on the application of digital methods and technologies for current and future research in the field of Medieval Studies. Please send your proposal (300 Words incl. a short CV) to email@example.com by Sept. 15th. -- Prof. Dr. Georg Vogeler Professur für Digital Humanities - Zentrum für Informationsmodellierung Universität Graz A-8010 Graz | Elisabethstraße 59/III Tel. +43 316 380 8033 (https://informationsmodellierung.uni-graz.at/) - (http://gams.uni-graz.at/) (https://online.uni- graz.at/kfu_online/wbForschungsportal.cbShowPortal?pPersonNr=80075) Institut für Dokumentologie und Editorik e.V.

What has to be explored fully is the process through which this transformation occurred. Collective Wisdom, funded by an AHRC International Networking Grant, explores how and why members of the Royal Society, the Society of Antiquaries of London and the Leopoldina (in Halle, Germany) collected specimens of the natural world, art, and archaeology in the 17th and 18th centuries. In three international workshops, we are analysing the connections between these scholarly organisations, natural philosophy, and antiquarianism, and to what extent these networks shaped the formation of early museums and their categorisation of knowledge. Workshop III, concerning the afterlives, use and reconstruction of early modern collections is designed to benefit scholars interested in digital humanities. We will explore digital approaches to survey collections over time, assisted by the Royal Society-Google Cultural Institute partnership. How can we data-mine and use tools to integrate extant databases? How did the norms of early modern academies of scientific journal publication, priority of discovery and ‘matters of fact’ shape the organisation of knowledge? How do we consider those early modern models in digital reconstructions of early collecting? Speakers include: Min Chen (Oxford), Mary-Ann Constantine (Wales), Natasha David (Google), Michelle DiMeo (Hagley), Louisianne Ferlier (The Royal Society), Rainer Godel (Leopoldina), Rob Iliffe (Oxford), Neil Johnston (TNA), Suhair Khan (Google), Nigel Leask (Glasgow), Miranda Lewis (Oxford), Alice Marples (Oxford), Alessio Mattana (Turin), Brent Nelson (Saskatchewan), Julianne Nyhan (UCL), Torsten Roeder (Leopoldina), Anna Marie Roos (Lincoln), Giacomo Savani (University College Dublin), Cornelis Schilt (Oxford), Tom Scott (Wellcome), Aron Sterk (Lincoln), Matthew Symonds (CELL, UCL). £100 registration fee, full (includes lunches, coffees and music concert) £50 registration fee, students and concessions (includes lunches, coffees and music concert) Registration, programme, and abstracts: https://royalsociety.org/science-events-and-lectures/2019/11/collecting-and- collections/ Free registration for music concert following the workshop https://royalsociety.org/science-events-and-lectures/2019/11/collecting-for- charity/ For more information about the Collective Wisdom project see https://collectivewisdom.uoregon.edu/ Anna Marie Roos (PI) Vera Keller (Co-I) _______________________________________________ Unsubscribe at: http://dhhumanist.org/Restricted List posts to: firstname.lastname@example.org List info and archives at at: http://dhhumanist.org Listmember interface at: http://dhhumanist.org/Restricted/ Subscribe at: http://dhhumanist.org/membership_form.php
