All the best, Francesco Borghesi ----- The University of Sydney Sydney Digital Humanities Research Group and The Power Institute Lecture Images of Technology, Technologies of Imaging. Join the Sydney Digital Humanities Research Group and the Power Institute for a talk about digital art history with Emily Pugh, Getty Research Institute How has photography shaped art history? How are digital images continuing to shape the discipline even now? Emily Pugh, Principal Research Specialist and head of the Digital Art History department at the Getty Research Institute, will provide an overview of the ways the GRI's DAH team is exploring the relationships between imaging technologies and art-historical research and scholarship as part of two DAH projects in particular: PhotoTech (https://protect-au.mimecast.com/s/1RYpCnxyErCYZ7nOFNAL8q?domain=getty.edu), which uses emerging technologies such as computer vision and machine learning to discover new research possibilities within the GRI's Photo Archive, and Ed Ruscha Streets of Los Angeles (https://protect- au.mimecast.com/s/zQqaCoVzGQi0Vrkqf6jQAr?domain=getty.edu), an effort to digitize and make accessible 130,000 images of LA streets from an archive Ruscha began compiling in 1965. She will also discuss her own research into the use of 3D imaging of architecture and architectural models. Emily Pugh is the Digital Humanities Specialist at the Getty Research Institute, where she oversees the scholarly components of GRI digital art history projects, such as the Getty Provenance Index Remodeling project and the Harald Szeemann Digital Seminar. Prior to her time at the GRI, she served as the first Robert H. Smith Postdoctoral Research Associate, with special responsibilities for digital humanities projects, at the Center for Advanced Study in the Visual Arts. She has several years of experience with digital publication in particular, having served from 2001 to 2013 as the lead web developer for the online peer-reviewed journal Nineteenth-Century Art Worldwide. She was also the lead developer for NCAW's Digital Humanities and Art History series and co-authored a report on this series, which was published in the journal in Spring 2016. Emily received her PhD in Art History from the CUNY Graduate Center in 2008, where her studies focused on modern and contemporary architectural history. She is the author of Architecture, Politics, & Identity in Divided Berlin (University of Pittsburgh Press, 2014), and her essays on the Cold War urban built environment have appeared in the Journal of the Society of Architectural Historians, Centropa, and Space and Culture.

The conference is an interdisciplinary gathering of leading social media researchers, practitioners, and analysts from around the world. The 2020 conference is hosted by the College of Communication, Studio Chi and the College of Computing and Digital Media at DePaul University in Chicago, USA. Until a decade and a half ago, large media companies and governments lorded over an oligopoly controlling the means for communicating with the masses. That oligopoly was (temporarily?) broken by the introduction of social media with its revolutionary promise to democratize civil discourse and civil society. It has offered diverse groups the opportunity to connect to one another and form communities of practice that ultimately can serve to strengthen their voice. However, in recent years, we have also discovered that connecting the world via social media leads to new challenges. When so many diverse voices are brought together on a massive scale, conflict is common. Interpretation of this conflict is itself diverse: do we see a rise of incivility or freedom from moral policing? Extremism or idealism? Distrust or critique? The very same digital tools that amplify voices of the marginalized can also be used to silence diverse voices online through online harassment, doxing, trolling, and other measures. In this context, the International Conference on Social Media & Society invites scholarly and original submissions that explore key questions and central issues related (but not limited) to the 2020 theme of "Diverse Voices: Promises and Perils of Social Media For Diversity". We welcome research from a wide range of methodological perspectives employing established quantitative, qualitative, and mixed methods as well as innovative approaches that cross disciplinary boundaries and expand our understanding of the current and future trends in social media research, especially research that seeks to explore questions such as: * Can human society handle the connection of diverse and divergent (often conflicting) voices on social media? Is empowering every voice via social media a net good? * Under what conditions can social media build bridges across difference? When does social media reinforce division? * What social media affordances are good or bad in terms of supporting diversity, including but not limited to: race, class, gender, sexual, cultural, political and linguistic diversity? * What is the role of government regulation? Should social media be limited to activities that help to build strong societies? * Is it naive to think that giving everyone a voice will result in increased democracy? * And what is the role of social media in all of these? And how can social media platforms be used to empower marginalized voices? * Can AI and other automated tools help social media consumers and producers to overcome these challenges and provide online spaces for engagement with diverse voices? If so, how? IMPORTANT DATES * Full papers (6-10 pages) Due: Jan. 27, 2020 * WIP papers (1000-word extended abstract) Due: Jan. 27, 2020 * Panels, Workshops, & Posters Due: Mar. 16, 2020 Full papers presented at the Conference will be published in the conference proceedings by ACM International Conference Proceeding Series (ICPS) and will be available in the ACM Digital Library.

This gathering seeks to create an inclusive space for difficult, fruitful conversations around technology, however defined, as it affects and is affected by race, gender, sexuality, and ability. We aim to foster conversations that consider technology as the expression of material cultures, labor, and embodiment; as well as sites of empowerment or oppression. In libraries, and in the professional discourses of librarianship and information studies, we often talk about technology as a means to an end. Or, we speculate about technology as though it emanated from the horizon of a futurity that appears sometimes threatening, sometimes empowering, but always inevitable: e.g., artificial intelligence will 'revolutionize' the ways we find and use information. Both kinds of discourse omit the ways technologies begin and end in the flesh -- how technologies shape habits of body and mind, just as those habits influence the design and construction of technologies. The planning committee for the 2020 Gender and Sexuality in Information Studies Colloquium invites you to join continue these conversations July 24, 2020 in Washington, DC at George Washington University. We invite proposals that address the problems, power, and potential of technologies in libraries and archives, past, present, and future, and seek a range of interpretations of the concept of technology. *Upcoming Deadline for this CFP is November 15th.* More details and submission form available at: https://litwinbooks.com/colloquia/gsisc-2020/ If you have ideas for programs/sessions, please do submit them!
