Call for Papers:
Bringing Text Alive:
The Future of Scholarship, Pedagogy, and Electronic Publication

The Text Creation Partnership (TCP) project was founded at the University of
Michigan in 1999 to reinvent scholarship by creating fully searchable texts
of thousands of titles printed across three hundred years and two continents
of English and American history.

TCP includes texts selected from three commercially produced page image
collections, Early English Books Online (EEBO), available from ProQuest
Information and Learning, Evans Early American Imprints (Evans), available
from Newsbank-Readex and Eighteenth Century Collections Online (ECCO),
available from Thomson-Gale. Additionally, TCP's production has expanded to
include centers at Oxford University, the University of Toronto, and the
National Library of Wales. TCP cooperates directly with over a dozen
international scholarly projects devoted to subjects as wide ranging as
historical linguistics, literary studies, bibliographic studies, and
metadata integration. Scholars and students alike, in these disciplines and
many others have found often make the claim that resources like EEBO, Evans,
ECCO, and the TCP have revolutionized their work and by making primary
sources widely available, will "bring literature alive" (Thomas Pack,
E-Content, Dec. 1999). As the TCP project reaches the halfway mark of its
original goals, it seems a good time to investigate how it brings literature
in all disciplines to life in this exciting conference.

The conference invites papers from scholars, students (graduate and
undergraduate), librarians, publishers, or other interested people in all
disciplines to investigate topics such as (but not limited to):
. Changes in the landscape of scholarship and pedagogy introduced by
electronic resources like EEBO, Evans, ECCO, and the TCP
. Examples of teaching with such resources
. Examples of doing research with such resources
. Use of related resources like ESTC or Early American Newspapers
. The changing nature of scholarly communication
. Electronic publication
. Digital library development.

The conference will be held September 14 - 17, 2006 in Ann Arbor, MI
Deadline for paper submissions is May 15, 2006

E-CAP is the European conference on Computing and Philosophy, the European
affiliate of the International Association for Computing and Philosophy
(IACAP, www.iacap.org).
E-CAP is organized in cooperation with the Association of Computing
Machinery's Special Interest Group on Artificial Intelligence (SIGART)

E-CAP is the premier European venue for current research, reflection, and
lively discussion of all aspects of the "computational turn" that has
emerged over the past several decades, and continues to expand and develop
as a result of the multiple interactions between philosophy and computing.
The "culture" of E-CAP, like its sister CAP conferences in North America and
Asia-Pacific, discourages paper reading - and stresses instead the
presentation of ideas and lively discussion, along with informal networking.

On behalf of the Program Committee and presenting authors, we invite your
participation in ECAP'06.

The NTNU campus at Dragvoll offers excellent conference facilities as
well a beautiful physical setting as it overlooks Trondheim and the
Trondheim fjord. The city of Trondheim (Norway's ancient capital and
home to the Nidaros Cathedral, the largest Gothic cathedral north of the
Rhine) is easily accessible by air and rail, and is itself more than
worth the visit.

We look forward to welcoming you to Trondheim!

Intensive Introduction to TEI, August 2006, Brown University

Workshop Announcement: Intensive Introduction to TEI
August 10-12, 2006
Brown University
Co-sponsored by the Scholarly Technology Group and the Women Writers
Project, in conjunction with Summer and Continuing Education at Brown


The Scholarly Technology Group and the Women Writers Project are once
again offering a three-day workshop on text encoding with the TEI
Guidelines. This intensive hands-on introduction will cover the
basics of TEI encoding, including a discussion of stylesheets and XML
publication tools, project planning, and funding issues. The workshop
is designed to help encoding novices get quickly up to speed on basic
text encoding, with particular emphasis on the transcription of
primary sources and archival materials. Archivists, librarians,
digital project managers, humanities faculty and graduate students
will all find this workshop a useful background for a closer
engagement with text encoding theory and practice. The course will be
taught by Julia Flanders and Syd Bauman.

Attendees are encouraged to bring materials from their own projects
for discussion and practice.

Deadline for registration is July 14. The course fee is $425 ($475
after June 25), with low-cost accommodation available on the Brown
campus. To register, and for more information, please visit the site above.

Thanks! Julia
