Digital Classicist Seminars (London, 2011)
*This is reminder call for presentations. Please note the fast approaching deadline: April 15th.*
(Apologies for cross-posting. Please circulate widely–we welcome proposals from students as well as established researchers.)
The Digital Classicist will once more be running a series of seminars in Summer 2011, on the subject of research into the ancient world that has an innovative digital component. Themes could include, but are by no means limited to, visualization, information and data linking, digital textual and linguistic studies, and geographic information and network analysis; so long as the content is likely to be of interest both to classicists/ancient historians/archaeologists and information scientists/digital humanists, and would be considered serious research in at least one of those fields.
The seminars run on Friday afternoons (16:30 – 19:00) from June to mid-August in Senate House, London, and are hosted by the Institute of
Classical Studies (University of London). In previous years collected papers from the DC WiP seminars have been published in an online special
issue of Digital Medievalist, a printed volume from Ashgate Press, a BICS supplement (in production), and the last three years have been
released as audio podcasts. We have had expressions of interest in further print volumes from more than one publisher.
We have a budget to assist with travel to London (usually from within the UK, but we have occasionally been able to assist international presenters to attend, so please enquire).
Please send a 300-500 word abstract firstname.lastname@example.org by April 15th, 2011. We shall announce the full programme at the end of April.
(Coörganised by Will Wootton, Charlotte Tupman, Matteo Romanello, Simon Mahony, Timothy Hill, Alejandro Giacometti, Juan Garcés, Stuart Dunn & Gabriel Bodard.)
