SDH/SEMI 2006: Call for Papers

The City: A Festival of Knowledge

2006 Annual Meeting of the Society for Digital Humanities / Société pour
l’étude des Médias Interactifs

The Society for Digital Humanities (SDH / SEMI) invites scholars and
graduate students to submit proposals for papers and sessions for its annual
meeting, which will be held at the 2006 Congress of the Social Sciences and
Humanities, York University, from May 29-31, 2006.

The society in particular would like to encourage submissions relating to
the central theme of the Congress: The City. Our understanding of what the
city means as a construct is broad, and we encourage submissions that treat
the city not only as an object for analysis, or as a venue for expression,
but also a frame of departure for themes that are implied by the idea of the
city, but not subsumed by it, themes such as synergy, complexity, diversity,
collaboration, networks, the rural versus the urban, the city as both
constituent and opponent of the environment, and the interaction between the
local and the global.

SDH also encourages submissions relating to all topics relating to the ever
emerging discipline of humanities and computing. Potential topics include,
but are not limited to:

    * Scholarly electronic publishing and dissemination
    * Humanities computing and pedagogy
    * Computer supported collaboration using the web
    * Digital / Electronic copyright issues
    * The Future of Humanities Computing
    * Computing in the Fine, Performing and New Media Arts
    * e-Accesibility

Aside from presenting a stimulating array of recent work in humanities and
computing, the final day of this year’s conference will also feature a
one-day symposium titled "The Computer: The Once and Future Medium for the
Humanities and Social Sciences." Featuring invited speakers from the
sciences, social sciences and the humanities, the symposium, sponsored by
the Federation of the Social Sciences and Humanities, the Society for
Digital Humanities, and the Canadian Historical Association, will highlight
emerging and potential applications of the computer to support research,
representation and instruction. Invited speakers will address topics ranging
from speech synthesis and historical linguistics to computer games and the
emerging medium of augmented reality.

The conference will also see a number of joint sessions with several
Federation societies.

There is a limited amount of funding available to support a graduate student
panel. Interested applicants should inquire using the contact information
listed below.

Paper and/or session proposals will be accepted until December 15, 2005.
Please note that all presenters must be members of SDH / SEMI 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.

All abstracts and questions should be sent electronically to the addresses
