Stanford University and the Université de Lille (France) invite submissions to a workshop on “Digital humanities to Preserve Knowledge and Cultural Heritage: Collaborate, Compute, Share, and Visualize ” at the Center for Spatial and Textual Analysis (CESTA), Stanford University, on Monday, April 15, 2019.
As Digital Humanities continue to gain momentum, the field is intersecting with an ever-widening range of disciplines including Natural Language Processing, Library and Information Science, History, Literature, and Translation Studies to name only a few. The growth of these fields within DH enables us to break new scientific ground. For example, the existing reservoir of public domain translations of literary texts, once tracked and digitized, provides a new a wealth of linguistic resources to sustain and salvage endangered languages and help us map the global circulation and reception of texts.
This workshop provides an opportunity to present recent scholarship and exchange information about DH projects from all disciplines focused on collecting, computing, sharing and visualizing transnational data to preserve knowledge and cultural heritage.
We welcome submissions including but not limited to the following topics :
After the workshop, participants will be invited to revise their papers (incorporating feedback from the workshop) to be considered for inclusion in a special issue of The Journal of Data Mining and Digital Humanities devoted to the subject of the workshop.
Please submit one-page abstracts for your 15-minute presentation to firstname.lastname@example.org by 20 February 2019.
The Journal of Data Mining and Digital Humanities plans to publish a selection of the papers presented at the workshop.
Abstract submission deadline : 20 February 2019
