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 a limited amount of funding available to support a graduate
student panel. Interested parties should inquire through the address

Paper and/or session proposals will be accepted until December 15, 2004.
Please note that all presenters must be members of COCH/COSH at the time
of the conference.

Abstracts/proposals should include the following information at the top
of the front page: title of paper, author's name(s); complete mailing
address, including e-mail; institutional affiliation and rank, if any,
of the author; statement of need for audio-visual equipment. Abstracts
of papers should be between 150 and 300 words long, and clearly indicate
the paper's thesis, methodology and conclusion.

Single-paper proposals will be accepted electronically via the
conference web site: http://www.coch-cosh.ca/Congress/2005/

Session proposals and other inquiries may be emailed directly to
