        Subject: Call for Proposals: Encoding Cultures – joint MEC and TEI Conference 2023

We are pleased to announce a call for papers, posters, panels, and
workshops for “Encoding Cultures,” a joint conference of the annual Music
Encoding Conference and Text Encoding Initiative Members’ Meeting.

The conference will be held 5–8 September 2023 (Tue-Fri) at Paderborn
University, Germany, with pre-conference workshops 4–5 September 2023

This event brings together, for the first time, the Music Encoding
Initiative (MEI) and Text Encoding Initiative (TEI) communities, both of
which are involved in the digitization and encoding of cultural heritage
artifacts. While musical and textual artifacts have fundamental
differences, there are many overlapping approaches in regard to data
modeling, encoding theory, and digital publication. MEI and TEI also share
technical tools and services, as both XML vocabularies are formally
expressed using TEI's customization and documentation language.

The conference topic is Encoding Cultures, understood both as the encoding
of multiple cultures and cultural outputs as well as the variety of
encoding cultures that exist within and across our communities.

Encoding Cultures will be the 23rd annual meeting of the TEI community and
the 11th annual Music Encoding Conference, a cross-disciplinary venue for
the MEI community and all who are interested in the digital representation
of music.

The deadline for submissions is April 16, 2023. Please find more
information and the text of the full Call for Proposals at

We look forward to seeing you in Paderborn!

Digging for Gold: Knowledge Extraction from Text (UNED, Madrid), 9-11 May 2023

Applications close 1 March<>

We are happy to announce that successful applicants to the "Digging for Gold: 
Knowledge Extraction from Text" CLS INFRA Training School will have breakfasts, 
lunches and hotel accommodation provided through UNED. We hope this will 
open the opportunity to those for whom the cost of training is prohibitive.

If you are eager to kick start your research in Digital Humanities and
Computational Literary Studies, we will work with techniques from Stylometry to
Natural Language Processing to learn how to uncover information from a corpus of
text. You will be completing your own analyses and visualizing the results in a
hands-on way. We will work with existing code that is plug and play, so it is
not necessary to have existing experience in Python or R. Most of all, it will
be a fun and safe environment to boost your textual analysis skills. You'll be
surprised what precious information you can extract from your own data set!

For full details on the Madrid Training School, including a provisional schedule
and application information, visit CLS INFRA Training
School<>and follow us for further
updates on @clsinfra<> and Mastodon<>.

Registration for this Training School session closes on 1 March 2023, but we
will be producing others later in the year.

a special issue of an international journal (to be specified). We aim
for a first submission around November 15, 2023.

We are seeking 2-4 additional contributors to this workshop &
publication project. Please send a developed abstract (ca. 1500 words)
to and

Inquiries can be sent to

A project from the UEFISCDI research grant ‘The Art of Thinking in the
Enlightenment’, 116/2022

The theme of this project is the redescription of logic as an art for
directing and correcting the work of the operations of the mind in its
search for truth in several quarters of early modern and Enlightenment
philosophy. This historical approach to logic has been labelled ‘logic
of ideas’ or ‘facultative logic’ and various assessments have been
proposed of its significance for the history of logic or for the
epistemology and scientific methodology of the period. We aim to address
the foundational rationale of this type of logic, signalled by the
appearance of ‘self-knowledge’ or ‘the knowledge of man’ among the aims
of logic. That is to say, we aim to study the confluences between logic
and the investigation of human nature, be it in the form of the early
modern natural history of the understanding or of the Enlightenment
science of man, and understand their historical and philosophical
consequences. We aim to look at works presented or received as logics /
arts of thinking, or at works on the human mind / human nature that use
logical frameworks.

One set of issues has to do with the articulation of logical and
anthropological concerns. For example: the relation between artificial
logic, natural logic and the natural history of the understanding / the
science of human nature / the history of man; the problem of error and
its place within a natural historical / natural logical / artificial
logical project; the expansion of the set of powers of the mind
understood as relevant to logic and the role of the body in this
context; the crossovers with theological and medical anthropology; the
pairing of logical structures with the operations of the mind
responsible for their creation and validation; the consequences of this
for the accounts of definition and argumentation, of demonstrative and
probable reasoning, of abstraction and generalization, etc.

Another set of issues has to do with the articulation of description and
normativity. For example: the way norms of good thinking were (meant to
be) embedded in the experimental description of mind/man; or else, the
nature of logical rules and their legitimation with reference to natural
logic; the relation between logical rules and the idea of best practice
in the arts and sciences; the problem of the universal or culturally
embedded nature of the norms; the way the norms sometimes involve a
practical project, with pedagogical consequences.
