Message 2: Digital Media and Humanities Research: ACH/ALLC Conference

Date: Wed, 20 Sep 2000 11:11:49 +0300
From: Laszlo Hunyadi <>
Subject: Digital Media and Humanities Research: ACH/ALLC Conference


Digital Media and Humanities Research: ACH/ALLC Conference,
New York City, June 13-17 2001

The joint conference of the Association for Computers and the
Humanities and the Association for Literary and Linguistic Computing
is the oldest established meeting of scholars working at the
intersection of advanced information technologies and the humanities,
annually attracting a distinguished international community at the
forefront of their fields. The theme for the 2001 conference is
"Digital Media and Humanities Research", and it will feature plenary
addresses by two leading scholars: Johanna Drucker, Robertson
Professor in Media Studies at the University of Virginia, and Alan
Liu, Professor of English at the University of California, Santa

ACH/ALLC 2001 invites submissions of between 750 and 1500 words on any
aspect of humanities computing or new media, broadly defined to
encompass the common ground between information technology and
problems in humanities research and teaching. We especially encourage
submissions from any field which address the impact of new media on
research methods and intellectual practices. As always, we welcome
submissions in any area of the humanities, especially
interdisciplinary work. Other areas of interest include the creation
and use of digital resources, theoretical or speculative treatments of
new media, and the application to humanities data of techniques
developed in such fields as information science and the physical
sciences and engineering.

Successful proposals might focus on:

 * new approaches to research in humanities disciplines
 using digital resources dependent on images, audio, or

 * traditional applications of computing in the
 humanities, including (but not limited to) text
 encoding, hypertext, text corpora, computational
 lexicography, statistical models, and text analysis;

 * applications in the digital arts, especially projects
 and installations that feature technical advances of
 potential interest to humanities scholars;

 * information design in the humanities, including
 visualization, simulation, and modeling;

 * pedagogical applications of new media within the
 humanities; thoughtful considerations of the cultural
 impact of computing and new media;

 * the institutional role of humanities computing and new
 media within the contemporary academy, including
 curriculum development and collegial support for
 activities in these fields.

Financial assistance for some speakers will be available: see the
conference web page for details. For the first time the conference
will also feature a workshop session on academic and industry jobs in
humanities computing and new media.

The deadline for submissions of paper/session proposals is 15 November
2000; the deadline for submissions of poster/demo proposals is 15
January 2001. See for
full details on submitting proposals and on the conference in general.
