Culture Mapping Symposium 2019
New York University
12-13 April

Dear all,

Apologies for cross-posting. Just a reminder that the deadline to submit
proposals for the 2019 Culture Mapping Symposium at New York University
is rapidly approaching! If you're located in the New York City area and
work on cultural history / artifacts using digital methods, we invite
you to participate. Details below.

Proposals for the 2019 Culture Mapping Symposium are due March 1!

New York University’s NewYorkScapes research collaborative is still
welcoming submissions for its 2019 Culture Mapping symposium. We invite
proposals that explore the intersection of space/place (with a
particular but not exclusive interest in New York City), mapping and
cartography in their various registers, and digital methods, and
especially those that investigate justice, community, and/or resistance
as spatial projects to whose nuance humanities methods attend.
Emphasizing this year’s theme — “Migrations” — we seek to think
critically and collaboratively about the role of sited human experience
in digital scholarship and pedagogy.

We hope you’ll share how the migrations of bodies, artifacts, ideas, and
data — to name just a few possibilities — figure in your digital or
digitally-informed research, teaching, art and other experiments.

Proposals from across the humanities and social sciences are welcome.
Faculty, librarians, graduate and undergraduate students, staff and
administrators, and community members are all encouraged to participate.
Potential areas of engagement include but are not limited to:

• Digital cartography & GIS as tools for humanities research and teaching
• Visualizing literary and historical materialisms
• Digital-born media, art, literature, and games that thematize migration
• Knowledge networks and infrastructures
• Resistant, anti-racist, decolonial and/or indigenous mapping; mapping
for social justice
• Mapping as storytelling
• Community-engaged culture mapping and project design
• Instructional technology / technology-enhanced pedagogies,
particularly in the context of teaching place-based cultural heritage
• Data migration and data management plans in humanities and social
sciences research
• Citation, circulation, and publication networks
• Archives and digital collections

Submissions can take the form of traditional paper / project
presentations (10-20 minutes), five-minute lightning talks,
performances, or roundtables (30-40 minutes). You may also propose a
workshop on a methodology, technical or otherwise, in which you have
expertise and which you feel would be of broad interest. Proposals
should be 200-300 words in length and should describe the proposed
topic, requested time length and format, and participants. Culture
Mapping will take place April 12 - 13 at NYU's Washington Square campus.

To submit a proposal, please complete the online submission form
[https://newyorkscapes.org/culture-mapping-2019-submission-form/] by
March 1.

        Subject: Call for Participation: First LiLa (Linking Latin) Workshop, 3rd-4th June 2019, Milan, Italy

The ERC-funded project LiLa: Linking Latin - Building a Knowledge Base of
Linguistic Resources and NLP Tools for Latin is delighted to announce its
first workshop, which will take place at the Università Cattolica del Sacro
Cuore in Milan, Italy, on 3rd-4th June
2019 [http://airmail.calendar/2019-06-03%2012:00:00%20CEST].

LiLa responds to the growing need in the fields of Computational Linguistics,
Humanities Computing and Classics to create an interoperable Knowledge Base of
linguistic resources and NLP tools for Latin. To this end, LiLa makes use of
Linked Open Data (LOD) practices and standards to connect words to textual and
lexical resources currently distributed across the web.

This workshop brings together over twenty scholars from around the world
responsible for the creation of tools and resources for Latin with a view to
understanding their present state of development and discussing their potential
integration in the LiLa Knowledge Base. The list of confirmed speakers is as

1. Bridget Almas (Alpheios), Tufts University (USA)
2. Bruno Bon (OMNIA), CNRS, Paris (France)
3. Marjorie Burghart (Verba, COL, Enigma), Université de Lyon (France)
