Dear Colleagues,

I am writing to let you know about a Symposium we will be holding at the
University of Newcastle in late November, 2019 -- see
https://digitalresearch2019.home.blog. The first day will be a THATcamp
and a Stylo workshop by the co-creator of Stylo, followed by two days of
papers and public events.

In light of your research interests, we would like to invite you to
propose a paper, panel, or workshop for the conference.

Our international keynote speakers are Professor Jan Rybicki and
Professor Ray Siemens, with Newcastle's Professor Hugh Craig also

We are interested in including work from a diverse range of research
areas within the digital humanities, and from both experienced
practitioners and those starting to move into the area.

If you, your colleagues or postgraduate students might be interested in
presenting at or attending this Symposium, please get in touch
viadigitalresearch2019@newcastle.edu.au. If you have any
questions, we would be very happy to answer them.

Kind regards,

Rebecca Beirne, Marie-Laure Vuaille-Barcan and Erin McCarthy

        Subject: Jobs Slam at ACH2019 Conference in Pittsburgh, July 26

Dear Colleagues,

Some on this list may be attending the Association for Computers and the
Humanities (ACH) conference in Pittsburgh next week. If so, please know
that the ACH will hold its general meeting (also known as the AGM and
identified that way in the conference program
https://www.conftool.org/ach2019/index.php?page=browseSessions) on Friday,
7/26, at 12:15-1:30 PM, Salon 2 and 3 at the Marriott City Center.

It's a tradition of several years' standing to hold a Jobs Slam during the
AGM. What does this mean? It means that if you're looking for a job, you
get to shine a light on your experience, skills, and all-around
awesomeness! If your organization has an opening, then it means you get to
talk about the available job, your place of work, and make clear why it
would be a huge mistake not to apply for this position! The Jobs Slam has
been a useful networking opportunity for both job seekers and institutions
with openings.

To participate: Please send a PPT slide about yourself (skills, experience,
what kind of job you're seeking, etc.) OR about the job (what the person
will do, qualifications, info about the org, etc.) to secretary@ach.org.
ACH will aggregate the slides, and each person will have a chance to
amplify the slide with additional information about themselves or about the
institution that has the open position. Only ONE slide per job seeker /
institution, please, and each person will have 60 seconds to talk. Please
submit by 12 PM Eastern time on July 26.

We hope there'll be lots of slides to share at the Jobs Slam next
Friday. Please
forward to relevant professional lists to get the word out!

All best,
Patricia Hswe
