Call for Papers – the Joint Conference of the Society for Textual Scholarship and the Association for Documentary Editing
CONVERGENCES AND DIVERGENCES
University of Nebraska-Lincoln, June 17-20, 2015
Program Organizers: Andrew Jewell, Amanda Gailey, Elizabeth Lorang, Kenneth M. Price
Deadline for Proposals: January 30, 2015
Keynote Speaker: Jerome McGann
The Society for Textual Scholarship and Association for Documentary Editing announce a historic joint conference of the two organizations to be held at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, an international hub for digital editing. Home to the Center for Digital Research in the Humanities and numerous print and digital editing projects, UNL is located in the capital of Nebraska and offers opportunities for exploring the history and geography of the Great Plains.
This special joint conference will bring together two organizations with a history and future of interests in studying and editing literary and historical materials. We invite proposals on any aspect of documentary editing and textual scholarship, including (but not restricted to) the discovery, editing, annotation, analysis, teaching, and publication of texts from many disciplines, including history, literature, classics, musicology, philosophy, paleography, codicology, linguistics, art history, the history of science, library and information science, film studies, gender and sexuality studies, ethnic studies, and more. We invite proposals from students.
Because this is a unique joint meeting of the two organizations, we are especially interested in submissions on the theme of convergences and divergences—papers that examine how different editorial theories and methodologies at times intersect and at others veer apart. What are the histories and possible futures of the two related but distinct editorial traditions of ADE and STS? We see this conference as an opportunity for reflection about editorial traditions and the prospects for textual studies and encourage proposals that explore these topics.
Submissions may take the following forms:
1. Papers. Papers should be no more than 20 minutes in length, making a significant original contribution to scholarship.
2. Panels. Panels may consist of either three associated papers or four to six roundtable speakers. Roundtables should address topics of broad interest and scope, with the goal of fostering lively debate with audience participation.
3. Posters. Posters showcase projects or present focused topics in a setting that features personal interaction and informal conversation. Posters on works-in-progress are encouraged.
To propose a paper, panel, or poster, send an abstract of no more than 500 words to the program committee via the form available at http://go.unl.edu/e8x8 no later than January 30, 2015. The proposal should clearly indicate the format and whether technological support will be required. Please include the name, email address, and institutional affiliations for all participants.
Opportunity for New Editors: Institute for Editing Historical Documents
With funding from the National Historical Publications and Records Commission, the ADE offers an additional opportunity in Lincoln in conjunction with the conference: the Institute for Editing Historical Documents, to be held June 13-17 for individuals new to the practice of historical documentary editing. Experienced documentary editors provide instruction in the principles of their field and insight into the realities of their work. For more information, contact Bob Karachuk, Education Director, Association for Documentary Editing, at ade-educationdir <at> documentaryediting.org.
Dear Members of the list, I'm copying here a message of a friend of mine, Jesus Ureña, from the Extremadura University, who has problems to subscribe to the list and has a question on tagging theatre texts. Here is the question: I don't know how to mark when a theatre character speaks aside of the scene, talking to himself and to the public, but without being heard by the other characters. I can't mark it as <sp type="aside"> as it would affect to the whole passage and this is not the case. Any ideas or suggestions? Thanks a lot and best regards, Jesus <sp> <speaker>MARCELA</speaker> <l type="I">¿Qué mandas?</l> <l type="F">Temblando llego.</l> /sp> <stage type="delivery">([Aparte.]</stage>

Dear colleagues, You are cordially invited to participate in the Music Encoding Conference by the Music Encoding Initiative community, which will be held 19-21 May 2015 (with pre-conference workshops on 18 May) in Florence, Italy, in cooperation with IAML Italia. The quest for a coherent and universal system for the digital representation of music notation has been pursued for decades and the recent accomplishments of the Music Encoding Initiative have garnered a great deal of attention in a wide range of music scholarship and in the broader digital humanities. The encoding of symbolic music data opens new research paths to traditional music studies (from editing to analysis) and computational musicology, and constitutes a foundational tool for music bibliography and librarianship. This conference aims to gather specialists in all these areas, to discuss the current state of modeling, generation and use of music encoding, to exchange experiences, and to forge collaborations. Proposals for papers, posters, panel discussions, and pre-conference workshops are encouraged. Suggested topics include, but are not limited to: • music encoding as a theoretical approach for research • methodologies for encoding, music editing, description and analysis • rendering of symbolic music data in audio and graphical forms • relationships between symbolic music data, encoded text, and facsimile images • capture, interchange, and re-purposing of music data and metadata • ontologies, authority files, and linked data in music encoding and description • additional topics relevant to music encoding, editing, and description The deadline for all submissions is 23 November 2014. PDF or Word-compatible files are preferred. All submissions must include: • name(s) of author(s) • title • abstract • current or most recent institutional affiliation of author(s) and e-mail address • proposal type: paper, poster, panel session, or workshop For paper and poster proposals, abstracts of no more than 1000 words, including relevant bibliographic references, are requested. Please also include a short statement regarding your current interests related to music encoding. Panel session proposals, describing the topic and nature of the session and including short biographies of the participants, must be no longer than 2000 words. Proposals for half- or full-day pre-conference workshops, to be held on May 18th, should include the workshop’s proposed duration, as well as its logistical and technical requirements. Additional details regarding registration, accomodations, etc. will be announced on the conference webpage (http://music-encoding.org/conference/2015). Please note: As Florence in May is very crowded by tourists, it is suggested to book your accomodation as soon as possible, and not later than the end of 2014. Many hotels allow to book without any expense. A change would often be easier and cheaper, in case of need, then a very improbable last minute booking. Important dates: - 23 November 2014: Deadline for abstract submissions - 10 January 2015: Notification of acceptance of submission - 18 May 2015: Pre-conference workshops - 19-21 May 2015: Conference If you have any questions, please e-mail conference2015 <at> music-encoding.org.

Hi All, I am writing to see if there is any interest in a Text and Graphics SIG meeting at the upcoming TEI Conference and Members meeting. Our SIG meetings are typically rather small, with half a dozen or fewer in attendance. We don’t at present have any specific agenda items. Our SIG meetings are typically an informal discussion among people with graphics-heavy TEI projects, and we talk through some of the issues and challenges in encoding particular graphic and material phenomena. If we have a small group who would like to gather we can arrange for a room or schedule an informal lunch or dinner gathering. You may reply to me off-list if you are interested in meeting. Thank you, John Walsh Co-Convener, with Martin de la Iglesia, of the TEI Text and Graphics SIG. --- | John A.
