Hi everyone,

In cooperation with the Digital Humanities Summer Institute, a virtual
conference on Project Management will be held on June 9, 2022.

Project management is a tool that has long been associated with business.  Its
use in the academy is increasing as projects grow beyond the scope of a single
researcher.  Funding agencies are encouraging this trend by requesting detailed
and realistic work plans as part of grant applications.  However, challenges
exist for the application of project management to research projects.  For
example, research goals may be articulated but the methodology to accomplish
them is not well understood.  This is further complicated by the fact that
researchers see the application of these tools as rigid management approaches,
perhaps not suited for the academy.

Having said this, due to increasingly collaborative interdisciplinary projects,
many humanities scholars find themselves as “instant” or “accidental” managers.
They are leading teams of researchers from a variety of disciplines, research
assistants, librarians and others as well as managing financial and other
resources.  This is something for which they are often not prepared due to a
lack of training in this area.

This raises questions for exploration with regard to the application of project
management in the humanities generally and digital humanities more specifically.
These include

  *   What does project management look like in the humanities and digital
  *   What skills and knowledge are needed?
  *   What is the best way to engage and train researchers in the use of these
tools and skills?
  *   What tools are the most effective for managing projects within the
humanities and digital humanities?
  *   What particular challenges do academics face using the project management?
  *   What can be learned from the review of the use of project management in
other contexts, such as libraries?
  *   How can students be managed within a project management framework?
  *   What does project management look like in the age of COVIC-19?

We invite proposals for pre-recorded, 5-minute lightning talks that address
these and other issues pertinent to research in the area. Proposals should
contain a title, an abstract (of approximately 250 words, plus list of works
cited), and names and affiliations. Pre-recorded videos of lightning talks will
be solicited after proposal acceptance for posting in advance of the gathering.
Please send proposals on or before April 11 to<>.

15.30 – 16.00 Data, data, data: The focus of corpus analyses (Vaclav Brezina

16.00 – 16.30 General Discussion

The symposium offers a variety of perspectives on and applications of
corpus linguistics. The focus of the symposium is on innovation in the
field and the vision for the future. Each of the presenters was given the
following four guiding questions to prepare their lecture.

1.            Why are corpora important in your research?
2.            Can you provide examples from your research of any
difficulties or challenges when using corpora?
3.            Can you provide examples of when corpus analysis led to
unexpected findings?
4.            What is your vision for corpora in your field in the future?

        Subject: 3D Imaging and Modelling for Classics and Cultural Heritage (London, July 11–15)

Cost: £650 standard / £350 unwaged and unfunded (if a student, please
confirm that you have asked your institution for support before claiming
this rate)

Taught by Alicia Walsh (3D modelling specialist at Recollection Heritage
and freelance archaeologist) & Tutors: Gabriel Bodard (Digital Classics,

Whether you are interested in visualising ancient monuments or in making
and printing 3D models of historical artefacts—or even if you are just
passionate about cultural heritage and want to learn more about the
latest digital approaches—this online, intensive training course offers
practical experience, with instruction from some of the world's leaders
in the field.

The course will introduce you to issues, methods and technologies in the
3D imaging and modelling of ancient artefacts and buildings. Through a
hybrid mix of discussion and practical training, you will learn about
imaging of heritage objects. You will have the opportunity to put into
practice the method of photogrammetry, the production of a 3D model from
multiple still photographs of an object. You will also gain experience
with an easy-to-use 3D design tool, for creating reconstructions of lost
historical buildings or monuments. Both sets of technologies will be
presented within a theoretical and methodological framework, thinking
about 3D modelling alongside best practice, preservation, ethical and
legal issues.

Drawing on the expertise of the Institute of Classical Studies and
nearby museums, this course is suitable for students, archaeologists,
teachers and anyone else with an interest. We would love to hear if you
had a project in mind that you would like to work towards, but all
sessions will be accessible to complete beginners.
