In the heart of their communities and repositories of some of the most independent cultural collections in the UK, independent libraries are social, educational, working spaces which deliver numerous personal benefits to those who use them. This year’s theme is inspired by Ray Oldenburg’s The Great Good Place (1989), in which Oldenberg discusses the desirable ‘third place’: public places where anyone can gather and interact. Unlike the first place (home) and the second place (work), third spaces offer inexpensive access to discussion, pleasure, and community, leading to social cohesion, civic engagement, and the wellbeing that comes from a sense of place.

We are excited to announce that this year’s Keystone DH will be held at Temple University in Philadelphia. Keystone DH is an annual conference and a network of institutions and practitioners committed to advancing collaborative scholarship in digital humanities research and pedagogy across the Mid-Atlantic.
Proposals are welcome on any aspect of digital technologies and their application to the humanities and/or social sciences. We highly encourage projects that focus on the collaborative nature of research and teaching. Senior scholars should foreground the labor of students, librarians, and/or the community that sustained the project. We especially welcome proposals with representative and inclusive speaker involvement.
Proposals are now being accepted for presentations at the DHSI Conference & Colloquium, to be held in June 2020 alongside classes at the Digital Humanities Summer Institute, University of Victoria. Open to all, the DHSI Conference & Colloquium offers an opportunity to present research and projects within an engaging, collegial atmosphere. Participation comes free with DHSI registration, and contributors not planning to register for a DHSI course can join for a modest participation fee of $150 CDN.
DHARTI Twitter Conference: Innovating for DH in India
contact email: email@example.com
Innovating for DH in India, the first DHARTI Twitter Conference, will take place January 19th, 2020.
DHARTI is an initiative to bring together scholars engaged in digital practices in the arts and humanities with India being a point of reference. In its earlier avatar DHARTI was the Digital Humanities Alliance of India (DHAI). The first Digital Humanities Conference of India, organised jointly by IIM Indore and IIT Indore and was held at IIM Indore in 2018.
The CFP for the Handbook of Research on Machine Ethics and Morality has been extended to December 2, 2019. Thank you to everyone who has submitted a proposal. I’m expecting a similarly robust exchange for this extended call. Again, I’m interested in approaches to the topic from the humanities, with exploration on rhetorics and philosophies of artificial intelligence, machine ethics, and moral machines.
