        Subject: Call for Abstracts (Due Jan 17th) - Debates in the Digital Humanities: Computational Humanities

Call for Abstracts
Debates in the Digital Humanities: Computational Humanities
Co-Editors: Jessica Marie Johnson, David Mimno, and Lauren Tilton

Deadline Extended to January 17th
Full CFP: http://bit.ly/2YElyX3

Debates in the Digital Humanities are animated by questions about which
practices, modes of inquiry, and ways of knowing should be acknowledged
and engaged with. One area that continues to elicit equal measures of
excitement and anxiety is work that is labeled as quantitative or as
computational analysis. While text analysis has been the most prominent
example, recent advances in technologies for images and sound have
expanded computational approaches to other cultural forms. New forms of
data from listservs and code repositories to tweets and other social
media content have only enlivened debates about what counts as digital
humanities scholarship, what kind of knowledge computational approaches
can produce, who should be engaged in data inquiry, and what are its
stakes. Theorizing the role of computation in humanities, it seems, is
as much about power, prestige, and precarity as it is about p-values,
and this volume aims to put all of these issues in conversation.
Acknowledging the need for a space for reflexive and specialized debates
about computation in DH, /Debates in the Digital Humanities:
Computational Humanities/ invites contributions that engage with
computational and technical issues as well as about the role of
computation itself. Abstracts due January 17th. For more info, visit

> From: Charles M. Ess 

Dear AoIR-ists,

with the usual apologies for self-promotion
- but since this book has grown up alongside AoIR over the past 10 years
or so, I'm cautiously optimistic that at least some of you - including
the many AoIRists who are acknowledged as contributing to both the
earlier editions and now the revised 3rd, as well as innumerable
colleagues over the years whose conference contributions and
conversations have informed and made this text far better than it ever
would have been otherwise - will be pleased and interested.

Digital Media Ethics, 3rd edition, is now available for pre-purchase:


The original edition of this accessible and interdisciplinary textbook
was the first to consider the ethical issues of digital media from a
global, cross-cultural perspective.

This third edition has been thoroughly updated to incorporate the latest
research and developments, including the rise of Big Data, AI, and the
Internet of Things. The book’s case studies and pedagogical material
have also been extensively revised and updated to include such watershed
events as the Snowden revelations, #Gamergate, the Cambridge Analytica
scandal, privacy policy developments, and the emerging Chinese Social
Credit System.

New sections include “Death Online,” “Slow/Fair Technology”, and
material on sexbots. The “ethical toolkit” that introduces prevailing
ethical theories and their applications to the central issues of
privacy, copyright, pornography and violence, and the ethics of
cross-cultural communication online, has likewise been revised and
expanded. Each topic and theory are interwoven throughout the volume
with detailed sets of questions, additional resources, and suggestions
for further research and writing. Together, these enable readers to
foster careful reflection upon, writing about, and discussion of these
issues and their possible resolutions.

Retaining its student- and classroom-friendly approach, Digital Media
Ethics will continue to be the go-to textbook for anyone getting to
grips with this important topic.

A thousand thanks again to countless AoIRists for your insights,
contributions, and helpful critiques.
