I am glad to be able to announce the NYPL Short-Term Research Fellowships, though sorry that again they are only for people who can legally work in the US.

If anyone is interested in applying for a Food Studies Fellowship at the Pforzheimer Collection, we have Thomas Love Peacock's ms. recipe books, a manuscript of his entitled "The Science of Cookery," in addition to a number of published cookbooks (including vegetarian cookbooks and volumes promoting vegetarian diet).

Techne: Women's Art and Artifice in Early Modern Iberia and the New World. GEMELA session at the M/MLA 11/7-11/11/2013.

Tuesday, February 19, 2013 - 12:46pm

As wives, mothers, servants, and slaves, women were responsible for such essential domestic tasks as food preparation and family medicine in early modern Spain and the New World. Their labor required extensive knowledge and practical skill—techne—that discomfitted uninitiated men, including authors, doctors, and agents of the law. Inquisitors, for instance, tried a disproportionately large number of women for Judaizing precisely because they prepared suspicious family meals. In literature, figures like Celestina bespeak profound anxiety over skilled women's potential to undermine the patriarchal lineage system by remaking virgins.

Interface 2013: Creative and Critical Approaches in the Digital Humanities
Carleton University, Ottawa, Canada
May 3-5, 2013

The digital humanities explores how emerging digital forms of scholarly inquiry and new ways to assess and to organize knowledge transform the creative and critical methods humanities scholars use to approach their objects of study. Thoughtful in play, interdisciplinary in engagement, utopian in spirit, transformational in intent, digital humanists "imagine new couplings and scalings that are facilitated both by new models of research practice and by the availability of new tools and technologies" (The Digital Humanities Manifesto 2.0).
