Conference Announcement:
The Networked Citizen: New Contributions of the Digital Humanities

Consortium for Computers in the Humanities / Consortium pour Ordinateurs en
Sciences Humaines (COCH/COSH)
2005 Meeting of the Congress of the Social Sciences and Humanities
The University of Western Ontario, May 29 - 31, 2005

Proposals for papers and sessions are invited to be considered for
presentation at the 2005 meeting of COCH/COSH at the Congress of the Social
Sciences and Humanities.

Particularly welcome are proposals that develop the idea of the networked
citizen and the role of the Arts and Humanities in their work/lives.
Further topics may include, but will not be limited to:

- the web as network
- the post-national citizen
- humanities computing as an agora for multi-disciplinary engagement
- the network and society, from an Arts and Humanities perspective
- humanities computing and pedagogy
- computing in the visual, musical, and performance arts
- scholarly electronic publishing and dissemination
- digital/electronic copyright issues
- computing in multi-lingual and non-English environments
- e-accessibility
- ongoing humanities computing research involving materials in textual,
oral/aural, visual, multi-media, and other formats
- the paradoxes of standardization
- humanities versus instrumental methods
- the future of the humanities in computing

The conference will also see a number of joint sessions with
several Federation societies -- and will feature special panels designed
to emphasize communication across arts and humanities disciplines with a
focus on the integration of the work of the computing humanist and the
broader humanities research community. There is also a limited amount of
funding available to support a graduate student panel.

The call for papers, including individual paper proposal submission
details, will be sent out soon, but those wishing to organize panels and
joint sessions should contact the organizers as soon as possible. These and
any other conference inquiries may be directed to
