Professor Ray Siemens has pioneered the field of Digital Humanities,
showing the way towards collaborative, transformative, interdisciplinary
scholarship and pedagogy. He is the architect of the Digital Humanities
Summer Institute (DHSI) at the University of Victoria (UVic) in Canada,
where he is Distinguished Professor in the Faculty of Humanities.
Trained as an Early Modern English scholar, he has a cross appointment
in Computer Science, and he held a Canada Research Chair in Humanities
Computing (2004-15). In 2017-18, Siemens was Visiting Professor at
Western Sydney University. He has previously held visiting positions at
New York U (2013), at the Institute of English Studies in London (2005,
2008), in Japan (Ritsumeikan U Kyoto: 2010; U Tokyo: 2014) and in
Germany (U Passau: 2014). Siemens directs the Electronic Textual
Cultures Lab at UVic, which hosts several groups: (1) DHSI; (2)
Implementing New Knowledge Environments (INKE), funded by a SSHRC Major
Collaborative Research Initiative; (3) Canadian Social Knowledge
Institute (C-SKI), which actively promotes research and research
technologies that are accessible and significant to a broad audience of
specialists and non-specialists. C-SKI activities include awareness
raising, knowledge mobilisation, training, public engagement, scholarly
communication, and pertinent research and development on local, national
and international levels.

Spatial Relationships in Text as Data
A one-day workshop at The Alan Turing Institute, London.
Monday 28th October 2019

How can Qualitative Spatial Representation (QSR) be used in
digital humanities? How can qualitative spatial relationships
(e.g. next to, alongside, overlapping, inside, etc) in text be
processed as data? How can documents where layout in space
contributes meaning (e.g. poetry, multimodal documents) be
processed to make use of the spatial aspect?

This workshop is based around interaction among participants
with interest in these topics. It continues discussions initiated
by the AHRC-funded research network: Space and Narrative in the
Digital Humanities. The event is open to all, but the number of
places is limited.

For more details, and to participate, please see:

John Stell, School of Computing, University of Leeds, UK
Ian Gregory, Department of History, Lancaster University, UK
Tony Cohn, School of Computing, University of Leeds, UK

The workshop is supported by funding from:
AHRC through the Research Network: Space and Narrative in the
Digital Humanities.
The Alan Turing Institute
