CFP — Cinema Journal Teaching Dossier @ teachingmedia.org

http://www.teachingmedia.org/cinema-journal-teaching-dossier-cfp-dh-and-media-studies/

DH and Media Studies Crossovers/Collaborations/Interdisciplinary Explorations

Edited by Melanie E S Kohnen  and Leah Shafer

Media studies and Digital Humanities (DH) work share a range of intersecting concerns. Recent discipline-wide discussions in Flow and Media Commons, as well as at the SCMS and MLA conferences, have emphasized the crossovers between the two. For this issue of the Cinema Journal Teaching Dossier, we seek contributions that bring this discussion into the classroom. How do the concerns of DH work, with its emphases on innovative scholarly architectures, multimedia components, and cross-disciplinary hybridity, speak to evolving trends in media studies pedagogy? What kinds of pedagogical practices engage and capitalize on DH’s emphases on praxis and design? How can media studies practice model and promote a productive collaboration around computing in the humanities?

Software solutions for TEI-described manuscripts

Do you use TEI to describe manuscripts?

If so, could you help us by telling us the software solutions you use for:
  • editing
  • managing
  • publishing
  • indexing
the TEI-encoded information?
 
We would like to understand the range of solutions used by the TEI community to inform a new Bodleian Libraries project which aims to:
  • determine a suitable technical architecture for the storage and indexing of TEI-XML manuscript descriptions across multiple collections
  • build or implement the ‘back-end’ technical architecture as scoped
  • engage in user testing of the existing TEI-based catalogues to decide the functional improvements requires for the front end interface(s)
  • build a new, user-friendly interface for searching and browsing TEI
  • design and implement a sustainability plan around training, communications and standards
If you can help us, or have any questions about the project, please contact:

Late-breaking research/postgraduate and early career CFP

Call for Late-breaking Research Papers: TEI Members’ Meeting and Conference 2015

Text Encoding Initiative: connect—animate—innovate

2015 Annual Members’ Meeting and Conference of the TEI Consortium

Call for Papers on Late-breaking Research

28–31 October 2015

Lyon, France

Deadline: Tuesday 28 July 2015

Submissions: https://www.conftool.net/tei2015/


We invite proposals for individual papers on late-breaking research for the 15th annual Conference and Members’ Meeting of the Text Encoding Initiative Consortium (TEI—http://www.tei-c.org).

We particularly welcome proposals from early career researchers and postgraduate students.


The power of the TEI is realized in interactions, between texts, between programs, between practices, and between members of its community. This theme invites considerations of technical and social applications and approaches, both to the practice of encoding and to the development of local and international communities of use. It includes training in the TEI and related areas, for example incorporating the digital into traditional forms of editing. It addresses integration of TEI-encoded texts at scale, for example in libraries and large corpora, and acknowledges that new research questions and external developments require continuous innovation.

POSSIBLE TOPICS

This list is not exclusive.

  • Connecting the TEI
    • TEI across corpora, languages, and cultures
    • TEI, formal ontologies and the Semantic Web
    • TEI and beyond: interactions, interchange, integrations and interoperability
    • TEI in galleries, libraries, archives, and museums
  • Animating the TEI
    • TEI outreach, within and between communities of practice
    • TEI, editors, readers, collaborators
    • TEI and sustainability
    • TEI and visualization
  • Innovating with the TEI
  • TEI tools for analysis, publication, and infrastructures
  • TEI environments
  • TEI at scale
  • TEI, refinement, simplification, and extension

Submissions

All submissions should include a title, the abstract(s), a brief biography of all the author(s)/speaker(s), and up to five keywords.

Word counts apply to the text of the abstract, excluding titles, biographies and keywords.

INDIVIDUAL PAPERS

Speakers will be given 30 minutes each: 20 minutes for presentation, and 10 minutes for discussion. Proposals should not exceed 300 words.

LANGUAGE

Proposals may be submitted in English, French, German, Italian, Japanese, and Spanish. Accepted proposals will be asked to provide an abstract in English. If you need help with this, please contact the programme committee for advice. Presentations may be given in English or French.

Submission Procedure

Proposals must be submitted online, uploading them to https://www.conftool.net/tei2015/. You will need a (free) account to submit a proposal. All proposals will be peer-reviewed.


The deadline for submissions is Tuesday 28 July 2015.

Acceptances will be notified by Monday 10 August 2015.

CONFERENCE PROCEEDINGS

Conference papers will be considered for inclusion in the peer-reviewed conference proceedings, edited as a special issue of the Journal of the Text Encoding Initiative.

Do you work with collections of early-modern and modern printed material encoded in TEI or support people who do? Do you struggle with transformations from TEI to publication formats?

Are you interested in how TEI Simple can help you process your documents and document your publishing choices?

Come and learn how to apply the TEI Simple processing model to your data under the guidance of TEI SIMPLE experts. Check if you can achieve your publishing goals within a TEI Simple infrastructure.

We will give a basic introduction to the rationale behind TEI Simple and the tools that have been developed, and then spend the rest of the day working through participant’s material and texts from TEI Simple reference corpora.

The goal of the workshop is to test the TEI Simple framework on real life projects and with real editors, assessing not only whether it is complete and powerful enough, but also how easy it is to use for editors and developers working with TEI documents.

This theme invites considerations of technical and social applications and approaches, both to the practice of encoding and to the development of local and international communities of use.
