Do digital platforms change the way we remember? How will the myriad tracks we leave behind through social media and our online presences shape the historical practices of the future? When and how do digital technologies in the classroom move from being novel experiments to transparent modes of teaching? How does digitization reshape archives and archival methodologies? How does metadata contribute to forgetting and the shape of memory? How do we define and put into practice the growing field of Digital Humanities?

CFP Graduate Journal: The Word Hoard - "The Unrecyclable"

updated: 
Wednesday, September 19, 2012 - 2:16pm
The University of Western Ontario

What cannot be taken up or kept alive? What is too used to reuse, too basic to break down further? What are the ideas at dead ends? Adaptations, translations, dead languages, genres fallen out of favour, tropes no longer sensical, ruins, methodologies in unremitting decline? Who are the guardians of garbage that monitor and control our cycles and recycles? What happens to an artifact too special to recycle, not special enough to reuse? Give us the histories, the institutions, the authorities who intervene to unmake the unrecyclable. Where do our capacities for metamorphosis fail us? What materials have run out of time? What materials have all the time in the world to stay unchanged? Plastic in the shape of an albatross? Manuscripts sealed into the walls?

[UPDATE] NeMLA Deadline Approaching for The Literary Interventions of the Digital Humanities: A Pecha Kucha Roundtable

Ryan Cordell / Northeastern University / Digital Americanist Society

Digital humanists often tout their work as transformative to literary scholarship. Textual encoding, text mining, corpora analysis, and geospatial analysis all promise to shift our understanding of literary texts, historical periods, and cultural phenomena. Digital Humanities (DH) is certainly, as Stephen Ramsay recently quipped, the "hot thing." DH panels multiplied at the 2009, 2011, and 2012 MLA Conventions, and they received significant coverage in The Chronicle of Higher Education and Inside Higher Ed each year. More English Departments are hiring digital humanists; digital humanities centers multiply across a range of institutions.
