The Centre for Textual Studies at De Montfort University in Leicester, England, is running a three-day international conference to  showcase and explore the latest methods for analyzing literary and historical texts using computers. A particular focus will be the ways in which literary and historical scholarship will turn increasingly algorithmic in the future as we invent wholly new kinds of questions to ask of our texts because we have wholly new ways to investigate them. The conference will bring together, and put into fruitful dialogue, scholars using traditional literary and historical methods and those exploring and inventing new computational methods, to their mutual benefit.

In his recent polemical piece, noted academic and cultural critic, Timothy Brennan calls Digital Humanities, a “bust” and declares: “[a]fter a decade of investment and hype, what has the field accomplished? Not much.” Brennan’s critique of DH, amongst others, is that “[DH] promises to break the book format without explaining why one might want to — even as books, against all predictions, doggedly persist, filling the airplane hangar- sized warehouses of Amazon.com.” What remains potently interesting is that Brennan’s questioning of DH and its machine-oriented methodology[ies] is itself rooted in an Anglo-American episteme: one that has continuously promoted the “print medium” as the only legitimate paradigm for advancing worthwhile humanistic inquiry.

at the Midwest Modern Language Association Conference

15-18 November, Kansas City, Missouri 

The Research Group on Manuscript Evidence, in keeping with the M-MLA conference’s theme of “Consuming Cultures,” is sponsoring panels on the consumption of manuscripts.  This consumption can be both literal—for example, the destruction wrought by bookworms, fires, and biblioclasts—or metaphorical—where “consuming” can mean textual transmission and reception more broadly.  We invite all approaches, including textual, art historical, codicological, and paleographical as well as all periods.

“Digital Spatiality”

A special issue of Asiascape: Digital Asia

 

Guest Editors:

Dr. Rahul K. Gairola, Murdoch University, Australia

Dr. Martin Roth, University of Leipzig, Germany

 

Digital technologies, namely the “internet,” have catalyzed a dramatic shift in the production of space and how we conceive it. They are ambiguous at their borders, at once expanding yet shrinking notions of home and homeland, of the local and the global, and of the intangible and the material. Such fuzziness and shifting boundaries generate new spatial relations on multiple layers which we call “digital spatialities.”

The Future of Humanities in the 21st Century

Major civilizations of the world – Indian and Greek – based their models of education on inter-relatedness of various disciplines. However, with the focus on specialization and technology, liberal arts suffered at the expense of science and technology. But recently the discipline of Liberal arts and Human sciences has attained an unprecedented popularity in various Universities all over the world. The present world of the 21st century is strongly underpinned by rapid developments in the field of science and technology and accompanied by the ever-spreading roots of a global economy. The question then arises as to what role liberal education can play in the world mired in technological innovations spawned by globalization.

deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, March 7, 2018

Conceptions of identity, community, and space are given a new dimension in the digital age. Particularly since the mid 20th century, there has been a significant interest in the myriad ways that human identity is developed and expressed through technology. Researchers have adopted new tools and adapted old ones in order to account for the ways in which the digital serves to inform, organize, record, and explain both individual and communal identity. It is this flexibility to both adopt new tools and critically interrogate them that is at the center of digital humanities.
