[HNR] Panel (Networks in) Early Modern Digital Humanities, October, Puerto Rico
see below an announcement by Colin Wilder.
I am organizing 2-3 panels related to Early Modern Digital Humanities for the Sixteenth Century Society and Conference (to be held in San Juan, Puerto Rico, on October 24-27, 2013). Despite its name, the SCSC is really concerned with the whole run of time ca. 1450-1700 or so. Proposals for individual papers of all sorts on this theme are very welcome. We think that there may be enough interest in the early modern historical, literary, art-historical and other communities to put together more than one panel; which would be great. Based on initial discussions, it looks like we may have panels in the following thematic areas:
· Historical network analysis
· Digital cartography / geospatial analysis
· History of the book / history of book collections/libraries
· Hugo Grotius – citations, textual history, learned networks
We also solicit paper proposals in broader thematic areas relevant to DH such as:
· reports on progress of or problems in digitization efforts, whether text, image, audio or other (especially perhaps electronic text curation)
· treatments of meta-topics concerning data, informatics, convergence of knowledge systems or similar which might lend themselves to electronic representation
· treatments of virtual representations of things early modern, such as buildings, landscapes or sensory patterns
We will also be pitching the panels to journals for a special section on Digital Humanities and Early Modern history...
The submission deadline is March 15, so interested participants should contact me by about March 8.
