and Social Narrative", San Marino

First announcement. Apologies for cross posting.

The European Science Foundation and the EUROCORES
Programme "Consciousness in a Natural and
Cultural Context (CNCC)" is sponsoring a one-week
interdisciplinary collegium/summer school on
contemporary research in the area of social
cognition, theory of mind, and narrative theory
at the University of San Marino in San Marino.
See the collegium website at
Organizers: Shaun Gallagher, Dan Hutto, Dan Zahavi.

The collegium/summer school is open to a limited
number of graduate students and post-doc
researchers interested in theory of mind and the
role of narrative and embodied intersubjectivity
in our understanding of others. Priority will be
given to CNCC-associated students and post-docs.
Research presentations, discussions, and tutorial
sessions will allow researchers and students to
share knowledge and interact. Students will have
the opportunity to earn 15 points in the ECTS system.

San Marino is located more than 2,000 feet above
the Italian countryside and is possibly the
oldest existing republic in the world, with a
history of independence dating back to 301 CE.

         Subject: Esse 9 Conference Panel.

ESSE 9 conference -- Aarhus, Denmark, 22-26 August 2008:
Seminar 20: Shakespeare and Discourse Stylistics.

The next ESSE conference will be held at the
University of Aarhus Denmark from 22 to 26 August
2008. We invite papers for seminar 20 on Shakespeare and Discourse=

  From copia to stylistic reticence, Shakespeare's
playtexts map out the extreme limits and
impasse of verbal communication. The present
seminar aims at assessing and highlighting the
discourse strategies and structures at stake in
conversational exchange and interaction in the
very process of capturing the world of human
understanding and relationships. Such a process
involves the difficulty, sometimes the
impossibility, and the exhilaration of mediating
that world through language. Shakespeare's
playtexts should be envisaged as being rooted in
a cultural and rhetorical context in which
meaning (and the difficulties of conveying
meaning) is a collaborative construction,
involving author, text, culture, and reader.
Papers are welcome on the range of Shakespeare's
negotiations with the problematics of the
production of meaning. Areas of exploration
include textual stylistics, semantics, pragmatics, and semiotics.

Contact details for Panel 20:
Dr. Mireille Ravassat (University of Valenciennes, France)
E-mail: mireilleravassat_at_yahoo.fr

Dr. Lene Petersen (University of the West of England, Bristol, UK)
E-mail: Lene.Petersen_at_uwe.ac.uk

Those wishing to participate in the Conference
are invited to submit 200-word abstracts of their
proposed papers directly to both convenors of the
seminar in question before 1 March 2008. The
convenors will let the proponents know whether
their proposals have been accepted no later than 21 March 2008.

         From: "Olga Francois" <OFrancois_at_umuc.edu>
         Subject: Online Workshop: Building a Community that Values 
Academic Integrity
In recent years, plagiarism and cheating have been highlighted in the
news.  Whether discussing high-profile cases like Stephen Ambrose and
Doris Kearns Goodwin or reviewing works on the subject by notables like
Judge Richard Posner, the public appears keenly interested in
plagiarism. Plagiarism detection devices, once all the rage are, with
greater intensity, being challenged legally and ethically as
inappropriate vehicles for detecting plagiarism. Most recently,
Turnitin.com is in the middle of litigation challenging its business
practices as violations of copyright law.
Please join the Center for Intellectual Property as we attempt to
address the plagiarism and cheating issues on college campuses and try
to build communities that value academic integrity.
Building a Community that Values Academic Integrity
Dates: February 25 - March 7, 2008
Moderators: Gary Pavela, M.A., J.D., Director of Judicial Programs and
Student Ethical Development, University of Maryland -- College Park &
Kimberly Bonner, J.D., Executive Director, Center for Intellectual
Property, University of Maryland University College
Studies show that establishing a community of shared academic values
fosters academic integrity in the classroom. However, establishing that
community may be more difficult when students adopt the values of a
digital "remix" culture that challenges the traditional understanding of
authorship. How do institutions foster academic integrity values in
light of changing cultural norms? Are there special techniques and tools
required? Are the best tools to use in preventing academic dishonesty
"technical" like Turnitin.com? And are there additional legal and
ethical issues involved when using technical measures to prevent
academic dishonesty? Please see site for detailed course objectives-

         From: Patrick Durusau <patrick_at_durusau.net>
         Subject: Balisage: Markup, Montreal, August 12-15, 2008
With OpenDocument Format as an ISO standard
(ISO/IEC 26300) and OpenXML being debated for
approval as an ISO standard, markup is more
relevant than ever before for computing
humanists. In the not too distant future (closer
that I suspect many of us thought) the default
format for most documents is going to be XML.
Humanists readers should be interested in a new
markup conference in Montreal, Canada this coming
August that focuses on the leading edge of markup technology.
Its organizers describe the conference as:
"Balisage is a peer-reviewed conference designed
to meet the needs of markup theoreticians and
practitioners who are pushing the boundaries of
the field. It=92s all about the markup -- how to
create it; what it means; hierarchies and
overlap; modeling; taxonomies; transformation;
query, searching, and retrieval; presentation and
accessibility; making systems that make markup
dance (or dance faster to a different tune in a
smaller space) -- in short, changing the world and
the web through the power of marked-up information."

Hope you are having a great day!

         Subject: CFP last chance: The Publication and Study of 
Inscriptions in the Age of the Computer
Apologies for cross-postings
A reminder that proposals for papers to be included in the following
panel are due 1 February 2008:
2009 ASGLE Joint AIA/APA Panel
Philadelphia, PA, January 8-11 2009
The Publication and Study of Inscriptions in the Age of the Computer
Organized by Paul Iversen and Tom Elliott
The computer age has unleashed powerful new technologies that enhance
the study of Greek and Latin inscriptions, yet most scholars,
academic institutions and publishing houses are still not comfortable
with the idea of publishing inscriptions in a form that takes full
advantage of the new possibilities. The Society, therefore, welcomes
papers that discuss current or possible future computer-enhanced
initiatives in the areas of Greek and Latin Epigraphy. We are
particularly interested in papers that discuss theoretical
applications of new technologies to the field of epigraphy and the
formulation of international standards and protocols of publication
and institutional credit, especially digital projects that go well
beyond the mere encoding of the appearance of epigraphical sigla and
indicia (which is akin to putting old wine into new wineskins) to
include the en-coding of semantic and/or observational distinctions.
Abstracts will be adjudicated anonymously by a committee of ASGLE and
should not be longer than one page. Please follow the instructions
for the format of individual abstracts that will appear in the
October issue of the APA Newsletter. Abstracts should be sent to:
Paul A. Iversen, ASGLE Secretary-Treasurer, Department of Classics,
Case Western Reserve University, 11201 Euclid Avenue, Cleveland, OH
44106-7111 or paul.iversen (at) cwru.edu. The deadline is February 1, 2008.
Please feel free to forward this announcement to others.
