CALL FOR PAPERS
MODELS OF PARTNERSHIP IN DIGITAL RESEARCH
SHEFFIELD HALLAM UNIVERSITY, 28 JUNE 2006

Incorporating computing into our work impacts on some of the central tenets of humanistic endeavour, one of these being the nature
of how work gets done. Research in the digital humanities is, in large part, typified by a requirement for collaboration beyond
traditional boundaries, often necessitating cooperation among members of diverse communities and in other disciplines, faculties,
institutions, and sectors. This one-day colloquium focuses on the nature of such collaborations and partnerships, and the groups
that they involve: humanists, computing specialists, research funding agencies, publishers, others in both public and private
sectors, and beyond.

We welcome proposals for short papers / presentations of either 10 or 20 minutes on the theme of 'Models of Partnership in Digital
Research', for a one-day colloquium at Sheffield Hallam University on Wednesday 28 June 2006. The lead speaker will be Professor
Ray Siemens of the University of Victoria, Canada Research Chair in Humanities Computing. Other presentations already confirmed
will include Dr Steve Earnshaw, Sheffield Hallam University, on his lottery-funded project for widening access to the Sheffield
Flood Claims Archive (see http://extra.shu.ac.uk/sfca/ ) and Dr Matthew Steggle, Sheffield Hallam University, on EEBO and LION.
We request a short (one-paragraph) abstract to be sent to the organiser, Professor Lisa Hopkins (L.M.Hopkins_at_shu.ac.uk) by 1 April
2006.
