The Digital Humanities Initiative (DHI) at the University of Illinois at Chicago invites proposals from professional-level and graduate student digital humanists for the Fall 2020 Virtual Workshop:. This workshop will be presented using a hybrid model and will include asynchronous video tutorials and a synchronous presentation and discussion. We invite proposals from various disciplines including but not limited to history, music, anthropology, literature, communication, earth and environmental studies, etc.
While the theme for this year’s NEMLA conference proposes the dyad of “tradition and innovation,” some recent work in the Digital Humanities has skirted these two poles. An influential forum on “Ethics, Theories, and Practices of Care” in the 2019 edition of Debates in the Digital Humanities explores the status of care relations, maintenance and repair, the embrace of lowered-innovation levels, and the turn away from compulsive productivity in the sphere of Digital Humanities scholarship and pedagogy. These concerns follow a similar wave of interest in care and care relations in literary studies.
The Medical Heritage Library, Inc. is hosting an online conference to celebrate a decade of digitizing primary resources in the history of medicine on Friday November 13, 2020.
[ Context: Big Data & Society has issued a call for Special Theme Proposals. I will be proposing “Divisive Data” as a special theme. This initial call is to gather a list of interested contributors, along with titles and abstracts of articles, to submit to BD&S. ]
The promise of the internet was a promise of connection. Networked technologies would erase the physical and cultural space that separated us. Digital communications would unite us like never before. Online platforms would “bring the world closer together” (Zuckerberg 2017). Communication technologies would collapse boundaries, encourage dialogue, and facilitate mutual understanding.
ICNOVA book collection - a Portuguese editor - prepares an electronic book that gathers some of the texts presented at the Images & Archives seminar in 2019. The proposal intends to deepen the relationships between historical, artistic, anthropological and cultural research on photographs and films preserved in archives, both public and private. The documentary features of these images, their contexts and forms of re-contextualization, exhibition and display, the multiple histories with which they relate and the power relationships that produced and are reproduced by them are among the themes we wish to address, in the context of the "material turn" in the social sciences and the arts.

As we progress deeper and deeper into an age of data abundance, as what Simon Rogers describes a phenomenon of a “time in which we are all surrounded by data” with continued access to it, we are at the heart of a process of self-digitization, datafication, and online existence. Our move into cyberspaces and our dependence on digital platforms for information, communication, congregation, and self-design necessitate the crucial intervention of the Humanities as a discipline and a human-centered approach to understand what it means to be human in the digital age.

“What is ethical innovation?”
Have the last 20-50 years of innovation been a success? How does society view the founder? Is risk appropriately distributed across the innovation dynamic? What roles should the government take in scientific progress? What entities are responsible for technical disasters? How important are individual rights and privacy? What problems should innovators focus on for the next twenty years?
The collection includes a range of essays from both academics and professionals working on ethical issues facing the future of innovation.
With the epidemic shaking the world and the research/teaching/learning being moved online, the field of Digital Humanities has received an unprecedented attention of scholars and professionals.

ASKHISTORIANS 2020 DIGITAL CONFERENCE
“BUSINESS AS UNUSUAL: HISTORIES OF RUPTURE, CHAOS, REVOLUTION, AND CHANGE”
NeMLA 2021: Philadelphia, PA. March 11-14, 2021
As we move forward in this new normal, there is an urgent need, at both national and global levels, for critical investigations into the humanistic, scientific, and social scientific impacts of the coronavirus, both societally and in academia. It’s possible, likely even, that your current research and teaching focuses are not directly related to epidemiology. Regardless, your research and/or teaching has undoubtedly been affected by the pandemic. Now is a key moment to lean into the many robust opportunities for teaching developments and enhancements.
NeMLA 2021: Philadelphia, PA. March 11-14, 2021
In video games such as Life is Strange, the Witcher series, and Telltale’s The Walking Dead, multiple story choices are offered that are the purview not of the protagonist but of the player, who may be forced to choose from a limited set of outcomes but is still in control of the narrative’s pace and flow. Unlike traditional narratives in which the writer is in control of the characters’ choices and their outcomes, video game narratives involve the participant in an interactive shared story with multiple possibilities.
Resources for American Literary Study, the leading journal of archival and bibliographical scholarship in American literature, is inviting submissions for upcoming issues. Covering all periods of American literature, RALS welcomes both traditional and digital approaches to archival and bibliographical analysis.
Founded in 1971, RALS remains the only major scholarly periodical of its kind. Each issue includes, in addition to archival and bibliographical research, related book reviews and a unique “Prospects” essay that identifies new directions in the study of major authors. Our editorial board consists of leading scholars from an array of fields and subfields in American literary study.
This session proposes a re-examination of the undergraduate student writer's concept of agency during times of crisis. We aim to expand our critical understanding of what it means to teach students in a way that empowers, offers agency, and acknowledges the voice of the student during times of crisis, whether such crisis is a result of a global pandemic such as Covid-19, national issues such as police brutality, or the result of a personal struggle such as anxiety or loss and, thus, we welcome contributions that address agency, empowerment, and voice from a variety of academic perspectives.

Distance no longer impedes a college or university education; however, when institutions offer little or no training, scant support for faculty, poor course design, and little integration with campus life, they stymie rigorous programs. This collection of essays will interest practitioners of online teaching, design, and administration of successful online programs. If you are interested in submitting a chapter, please access the chapter proposal form on the Cambridge Scholars Publishing website and submit your completed form to email@example.com.
