                           CALL FOR PAPERS DEADLINE: April 28, 2000

    >As the effects of the digital revolution become more widespread, it is
    >clear that the new technology is bringing about an increasingly dynamic
    >concept of the image. In the area of the history and analysis of visual
    >culture this has implications both for the conventional moving images of
    >film and television and for approaches to traditional forms of static
    >imagery - such as painting, sculpture and architectural constructions.
    >In this conference we set out to explore the changes that have taken place
    >through the introduction of digital technology to the study, conservation
    >and creation of visual artefacts. Amongst the topics we will be covering
    >will be;
    >* Recording moving and static imagery.
    >* Reconstructions and simulations. Exploring pictures and buildings in time.
    >* Moving images on the Internet. Image delivery.
    >* The construction of virtual museums and visual archives. Official and
    >'pirate' sites. Digital imagery and the Law.
    >* Effects on the meaning and interpretation of works or art.
    >* 'Fidgetal' Imagery. The drawbacks of motion.
    >**Call for Papers
    >Chart welcomes contributions of the theme of movement and the image from
    >all involved in the study, analysis, conservation and management of works
    >of art and other forms of visual culture. Speakers will be given half an
    >hour each for the presentation of their paper.

                                  SENSEVAL 2

                                FIRST ANNOUNCEMENT
                         CALL FOR EXPRESSIONS OF INTEREST

    Following the success of the first SENSEVAL in 1998, we are now
    beginning the planning for SENSEVAL-2. As before, it will proceed as
    an ACL-SIGLEX activity. The evaluation will take place over a year,
    concluding with a workshop in Pisa in Spring 2001.

    Last time, there were evaluations for English, French and Italian.
    We are keen to encourage evaluations for further languages, so would
    particularly like to hear from people who are interested in setting up
    evaluations for the language they work in.

    If you wish to join the discussion group that works out how the
    evaluation should proceed (and were not on the mailing list for the
    first SENSEVAL) please let me know and I will add you to the list.

    Section V of the 7th Conference of the International Society for the Study
    of European Ideas (ISSEI)
    Bergen, Norway, August 14-18, 2000


    Main topics:
    1) The perspective of cultural decline and discontinuity in European
    education, with a possible "loss of memory"
    2) The impact of market adaptation, globalisation and supranational
    constructions on educational systems and contents
    3) The issue of critical continuity

    The international conference "Approaching the Millennium: Lessons From the
    Past - Prospects for the Future" is dedicating a section to European
    education. About 40 workshops have been established in this section,
    thematically ranging from gender issues to innovation strategies, from
    multi-cultural aspects to continued education, from the use of new
    technologies to post-colonial issues and francophonie.

    The section coordinator, Assoc. Prof. Daniel Apollon, invites historians,
    philosophers, sociologists and cultural critics as well as specialists in
    education and pedagogy to present multidisciplinary contributions.
