Seminar: Text Encoding for Humanities Scholarship

We are pleased to announce a one and a half day seminar in digital
text encoding for humanities scholars to be held at the University of
Nebraska-Lincoln Center for Digital Research in the Humanities, in
conjunction with the Nebraska Digital Workshop. The Text Encoding for
Humanities Scholarship seminar will be held Oct. 4-5, beginning at 1
p.m. on the 4th. The event will followed by the Nebraska Digital
Workshop on Oct. 6. Participants in the Text Encoding seminar will
examine the theoretical and practical ramifications of text encoding
for humanities scholarship, and the impact of the Text Encoding
Initiative (TEI) Guidelines on current approaches to digital
research. The goal of the seminar is to provide humanities faculty
and students with an opportunity to examine the significance of text
encoding as a scholarly practice, through a combination of discussion
and practical experimentation, and to provide supporting resources
for humanities researchers who want to experiment with text encoding
on their own, or would like to start or become involved with a
digital research project.

To register for the Text Encoding event, please send your name,
institution, email address, and a 2-paragraph statement of interest
and background to Katherine Walter at kwalter1_at_unl.edu. The seminar
cost is $35 US and can be paid on site. Participation is limited, so
please submit information soon.

This seminar is the third in a two-year series funded by the National
Endowment for the Humanities and sponsored by the Women Writers
Project at Brown University. For more information on the seminar
series, visit http://www.wwp.brown.edu/encoding/seminars/.

Thursday 8 - Friday 9 November 2007, Birkbeck, University of London.

Museums, galleries, archives, libraries and media
organisations such as publishers and film and
broadcast companies, have traditionally mediated
and controlled access to cultural resources and
knowledge. What is the future of such "top-down"
institutions in the age of "bottom-up" access to
knowledge and cultural artifacts through Web 2:0
technologies. Will such institutions respond to
this threat to their cultural hegemony by
resistance or adaptation? How can a museum or a
gallery or, for that matter, a broadcasting
company, appeal to an audience which has
unprecedented access to cultural resources? How
can institutions predicated on a cultural economy
of scarcity compete in an emerging state of
cultural abundance? The twenty-third CHArt
conference will reflect upon these issues.

It is our pleasure to announce the ESF-ESA-ESPI

Vienna Konzerthaus, Austria, on 11-12 October
2007, locally organized by ESPI with support of
BMVIT.... Further information on this conference
can be found on the following web site:

For human exploration of the Moon and Mars
nations and agencies might soon be prepared with
regards technology development. But what of the
contribution from the humanities and social
sciences? This conference, co-organised by the
European Science Foundation (ESF), the European
Space Agency (ESA) and the European Space Policy
Institute (ESPI), will aim at being the first
comprehensive trans-disciplinary dialogue in
Europe on humans in outer space. It will go
further than regarding humans as mere tools for
exploration, or better robots, and will
investigate the human quest for odysseys beyond
the atmosphere and reflect on the possibilities
to find extraterrestrial life. The conference
shall open up new perspectives in assessing
humankind's present and future outside the Earth
and document this in a "Vienna Vision on Humans in Outer Space".
