Subject: CFP for Networks for Humanities Data, Archives, and Pedagogy (71)  From: Courtney Paddick Subject: Bucknell University Digital Scholarship Conference- CFP (78) -------------------------------------------------------------------------- Date: 2019-05-24 04:59:46+00:00 From: Murphy, Emily Subject: CFP for Networks for Humanities Data, Archives, and Pedagogy "Networks for Humanities Data, Archives, and Pedagogy" will be a three-day symposium at the University of British Columbia (Okanagan), June 17-19, 2019. Presenters and participants will address two under-examined questions: 1) how to increase the usership of and accessibility to existing networks and tools in the digital humanities (DH); 2) how to bridge the divide between data and digitized archives in the humanities classroom. This work emerges from the digital humanities, and expands its approach to technology to encompass high- and low-tech classrooms. Digital resources for literary and cultural history suffer from a usership problem, and pedagogical research and practice has the richest potential to address it. Although many projects have thoughtfully curated resources for research, pedagogical, and public use, little compels students or instructors outside of the projects research teams to engage directly and frequently with them. Recent research reveals that the university classroom has been the primary context in which our understandings of literary and cultural history are forged, and we contend that it continues to be. Without robust integration of DH resources into classrooms, DH projects will miss a prime opportunity to fulfill their promise to alter scholarly and popular understandings of literary history. The field has not yet turned its attention to the systematic integration of digital tools and resources into the classroom, to building the infrastructure for trans-institutional collaboration, or to the bridging data and archival objects of literary study. Our symposium is driven by these needs. Instructors and researchers must be able to access compelling and well-maintained resources, and have the option of collaborating with partners with digital or literary specialties. We welcome both traditional and non-traditional contributions to this event: scholarly presentations, hands-on workshops, or other, multi-modal contributions are welcome. We invite submissions from researchers, instructors, graduate students, and librarians on the intersections of data and archives in the humanities classroom. A portion of the event will be dedicated to participant-driven unconference sessions that aim to follow through on the ideas and practices shared at the event, and to produce a robust basis for future collaboration and publication. Those contributing academic papers will be asked to submit materials in advance of the symposium to facilitate collaborative annotation. To apply, send a 100-word abstract and 50-word bio to firstname.lastname@example.org by May 31st. Abstracts may entail one of the follow contributions: a 15-minute academic presentation, or a 1-hour workshop. Registration to attend or contribute to the unconference sessions also welcome. Registration for the symposium is live here: http://bit.ly/NetworksPedagogy Topics for presentations and workshops may include: * Intersections of data and archives in the classroom; * Interdisciplinarity in the classroom; * Construction and implementation of pedagogical resources; * Pedagogical resources and impact or usage; * Accomplishments in or recommendations for digital pedagogical infrastructure; * Sustainability and trans-institutional collaboration in DH pedagogy; * New directions in pedagogy and the DH research project. Event Details: This event will be hosted at the University of British Columbias Okanagan Campus, on unceded Syilx (Okanagan) territory. Situated inland from Vancouver (45-minute flight or 4-hour drive), Kelowna and the Okanagan Valley boast beautiful mountain views, world-class wineries, and an active outdoor culture. UBC-Okanagan is home to 9,700 students and is the research and innovation hub of the Southern Interior of British Columbia. -------------------------------------------------------------------------- Date: 2019-05-23 20:57:11+00:00 From: Courtney Paddick Subject: Bucknell University Digital Scholarship Conference- CFP Bucknell University will host its sixth annual digital scholarship conference (#BUDSC19) on campus from October 11th - 13th. The theme for this year's conference is "From Wonder to Action: the Journey of Digital Scholarship" While every digital scholarship endeavor may be unique, many are kindled in a moment of wonder and are given form through three areas of activity -- the spark, the flow, and the sharing. Wonder excites you, breaks inertia and sparks you into action. A great idea for a creative endeavor begins to take shape. As a project or program starts to come together, activity flows, weaving itself into existence as purpose lends clarity to action. You're now building the project, teaching the class or using the technology. The project nears completion, and your creation is ready to be shared, to bring wonder to others and to ignite their own spark. The cycle starts anew. Sessions at this conference will be organized around each of these three actions -- the spark, the flow, and the sharing. Possible topics might include, but are not limited to: * Exciting new ideas, projects, or technologies that sparkthe imagination, * Activity flowsthat transform the spark into action, * Stories about how you share the wonder. Please keep in mind that these are only examples! Dont be afraid to be creative with your submission. Proposals may take the form of interactive presentations, project demos, electronic posters, panel discussions, work-in-progress sessions, workshops, lightning talks, or other creative formats. #BUDSC19 is committed to expanding the definition of digital scholarship to be more inclusive across diverse communities, both inside and outside of academia. The conference will bring together a broad community of practitioners--faculty, researchers, librarians, artists, educational technologists, students, administrators, and others--engaged in digital scholarship both in research and teaching who share an interest in the journey of digital scholarship. We look forward to building on the success of the last five years, in which we came together to discuss challenges, share working models, reflect on projects, and inspire new avenues for actively including students in scholarly pursuits.
