CALL FOR PAPERS, PROJECTS, AND WORKS-IN-PROGRESS 

In Numbered Lives: Life and Death in Quantum Media, scholar and feminist digital humanities practitioner Jacqueline Wernimont examines recordkeeping technologies used to account for human lives and bodies, beginning as early as the 15th century. The book, in part a robust critical historiography, challenges us to interrogate and engage mindfully with contemporary data issues and methods, and with the ways in which they shape our narratives regarding the value of lives and cultures.

At a time when a medieval and early modern understanding of literary authority had given way and a concept of intellectual property had not yet been solidly established, eighteenth-century Europe saw a surge of activity involving translation and appropriation of materials produced by others. As well as authors who freely borrowed from the past and present within their own cultures and languages, there was special interest in the translation and appropriation of materials drawn from other cultures and reinterpreted for European audiences.
