"Networks for Humanities Data, Archives, and Pedagogy" will be a
three-day symposium at the University of British Columbia (Okanagan),
June 17-19, 2019. Presenters and participants will address two
under-examined questions: 1) how to increase the usership of and
accessibility to existing networks and tools in the digital humanities
(DH); 2) how to bridge the divide between data and digitized archives in
the humanities classroom. This work emerges from the digital humanities,
and expands its approach to technology to encompass high- and low-tech

Digital resources for literary and cultural history suffer from a
usership problem, and pedagogical research and practice has the richest
potential to address it. Although many projects have thoughtfully
curated resources for research, pedagogical, and public use, little
compels students or instructors outside of the projects’ research teams
to engage directly and frequently with them. Recent research reveals
that the university classroom has been the primary context in which our
understandings of literary and cultural history are forged, and we
contend that it continues to be. Without robust integration of DH
resources into classrooms, DH projects will miss a prime opportunity to
fulfill their promise to alter scholarly and popular understandings of
literary history. The field has not yet turned its attention to the
systematic integration of digital tools and resources into the
classroom, to building the infrastructure for trans-institutional
collaboration, or to the bridging data and archival objects of literary
study. Our symposium is driven by these needs. Instructors and
researchers must be able to access compelling and well-maintained
resources, and have the option of collaborating with partners with
digital or literary specialties.

We welcome both traditional and non-traditional contributions to this
event: scholarly presentations, hands-on workshops, or other,
multi-modal contributions are welcome. We invite submissions from
researchers, instructors, graduate students, and librarians on the
intersections of data and archives in the humanities classroom. A
portion of the event will be dedicated to participant-driven
“unconference” sessions that aim to follow through on the ideas and
practices shared at the event, and to produce a robust basis for future
collaboration and publication. Those contributing academic papers will
be asked to submit materials in advance of the symposium to facilitate
collaborative annotation.

To apply, send a 100-word abstract and 50-word bio to
emily.murphy@ubc.ca by May 31st. Abstracts may entail one of the follow
contributions: a 15-minute academic presentation, or a 1-hour workshop.
Registration to attend or contribute to the unconference sessions also
welcome.  Registration for the symposium is live here:

Topics for presentations and workshops may include:

   * Intersections of data and archives in the classroom;
   * Interdisciplinarity in the classroom;
   * Construction and implementation of pedagogical resources;
   * Pedagogical resources and impact or usage;
   * Accomplishments in or recommendations for digital pedagogical
   * Sustainability and trans-institutional collaboration in DH pedagogy;
   * New directions in pedagogy and the DH research project.

Event Details:

This event will be hosted at the University of British Columbia’s
Okanagan Campus, on unceded Syilx (Okanagan) territory. Situated inland
from Vancouver (45-minute flight or 4-hour drive), Kelowna and the
Okanagan Valley boast beautiful mountain views, world-class wineries,
and an active outdoor culture. UBC-Okanagan is home to 9,700 students
and is the research and innovation hub of the Southern Interior of
British Columbia.

Bucknell University will host its sixth annual digital scholarship
conference (#BUDSC19) on campus from October 11th - 13th. The theme for
this year's conference is "From Wonder to Action: the Journey of Digital

While every digital scholarship endeavor may be unique, many are kindled
in a moment of wonder and are given form through three areas of activity
-- the spark, the flow, and the sharing.

Wonder excites you, breaks inertia and sparks you into action. A great
idea for a creative endeavor begins to take shape.

As a project or program starts to come together, activity flows, weaving
itself into existence as purpose lends clarity to action. You're now
building the project, teaching the class or using the technology.

The project nears completion, and your creation is ready to be shared,
to bring wonder to others and to ignite their own spark. The cycle
starts anew.

Sessions at this conference will be organized around each of these three
actions -- the spark, the flow, and the sharing. Possible topics might
include, but are not limited to:

   * Exciting new ideas, projects, or technologies that sparkthe

   * Activity flowsthat transform the spark into action,

   * Stories about how you share the wonder.

Please keep in mind that these are only examples! Don’t be afraid to be
creative with your submission.

Proposals may take the form of interactive presentations, project demos,
electronic posters, panel discussions, work-in-progress sessions,
workshops, lightning talks, or other creative formats.

#BUDSC19 is committed to expanding the definition of digital scholarship
to be more inclusive across diverse communities, both inside and outside
of academia. The conference will bring together a broad community of
practitioners--faculty, researchers, librarians, artists, educational
technologists, students, administrators, and others--engaged in digital
scholarship both in research and teaching who share an interest in the
journey of digital scholarship.

We look forward to building on the success of the last five years, in
which we came together to discuss challenges, share working models,
reflect on projects, and inspire new avenues for actively including
students in scholarly pursuits. For more information, please view our
highlights from the 2018 meeting

Join us to discuss the Journey of Digital Scholarship, where wonder
leads to action.
