Meeting Description:

Representing Knowledge in the Digital Humanities
The University of Kansas Institute for Digital Research in the Humanities
Saturday, 24 September 2011

Keynote Speaker: C. M. Sperberg-McQueen

Scholars utilize computationally-assisted methods to view, analyze, classify, and comment on sources of knowledge, and to illustrate the dynamics between these sources and their commentaries, both current and prior. Knowledge representation – the theory and methodology of modeling knowledge using computer technology – is becoming a key dimension of Digital Humanities (DH).

Many scholars are adapting long-established conventions from the print realm for representing knowledge in digital contexts, to view, analyze, classify, and comment on sources of knowledge, and to illustrate the dynamics between these sources and their commentaries, both current and prior. Many disciplines are adapting long-established conventions from the print realm for representing knowledge in digital contexts, or they are developing new ones altogether; these involve visual and textual epistemological models, information design, bibliographic tools, and visual representations. For example, there are established and emerging conventions for the description and display of textual evidence. When only part of a musical, visual, or written text is preserved, conventions exist to supply missing evidence and express levels of (un)certainty, and there are emerging tools and methods to enable and describe the citation of intellectual contributions to electronic texts by authors, annotators, translators, and analyzers. In general, humanists are increasingly evaluating and making use of DH methodologies and projects, as well as evaluating the impact of technology on research in the humanities.

The 24 September Knowledge Representation conference is preceded by a 22 September BootCamp (a hands-on digital tools workshop), and a THATCamp (a digital humanities unconference) on 23 September, all at the University of Kansas. Deadlines for BootCamp and THATCamp registrations are on 22 July 2011. Please see THATCamp Kansas website http://kansas2011.thatcamp.org for more information. (Participants are welcome to attend both the Representing Knowledge conference and THATCamp Kansas, but should register for each separately.)

Call for Papers:

The University of Kansas Digital Humanities Forum is a three-day series of events:

22 September: BootCamp (a hands-on digital tools workshop) - deadline 22 July
23 September: THATCamp (a digital humanities unconference) - deadline 22 July
24 September: Knowledge Representation conference - deadline 30 June

All events are free of charge, but space is limited, and granted on a first come first serve basis.

Registration for the BootCamp and THATCamp is available at http://kansas2011.thatcamp.org

Registration for the Representing Knowledge conference is available at http://idrh.ku.edu/2011conference/

Participants are welcome to attend some or all of three days, but should register for the BootCamp/THATCamp separately from the conference.
