JADH2019: "Localization in Global DH"

The Japanese Association for Digital Humanities (JADH) is pleased to
announce its ninth annual conference, to be held at Kansai University,
Osaka, Japan, August 29-31, 2019, hosted by the Open Research Center for
Asian Studies (KU-ORCAS) at Kansai University.

The conference will feature posters, papers and panels. We invite
proposals on all aspects of Digital Humanities, and especially encourage
papers treating topics that deal with practices that aim to cross
borders, for example, between academic fields, media, languages,
cultures, organizations, and so on, as related to the field of Digital

While globalization has spread our scholarly activities, digital
humanities must inevitably confront the local: linguistically,
geographically, historically. JADH has supported DH research relating to
Japan, where the association is located, and the wider East Asian
region, for almost a decade since it was first established. Through the
activities of its members and its annual conference, JADH has also
contributed to developing global approaches in DH.To exchange our
experiences in the world, we welcome presentations treating
"Localization in Global DH" this year. Although this is our  suggested
central focus, we nonetheless welcome papers on a broad range of DH topics.

Research issues, including data mining, information design and modeling,
software studies, and humanities research enabled through the digital
medium; computer-based research and computer applications in literary,
linguistic, cultural, and historical studies, including electronic
literature, public humanities, and interdisciplinary aspects of modern
scholarship. Examples might include text analysis, corpora, corpus
linguistics, language processing, language learning, and endangered
languages; the digital arts, architecture, music, film, theater, new
media and related areas; the creation and curation of humanities digital
resources; the role of digital humanities in academic curricula; The
range of topics covered by Digital Humanities can also be consulted in
the journal Digital Scholarship in the Humanities
(http://dsh.oxfordjournals.org/), Oxford University Press.

Abstracts submitted should be of 500-1000 words in length in English,
including the title.
