We are pleased to invite you to attend our next event 'The digital
canon: Key texts in digital ethnography' on Thursday 30th January,
6-7:30pm GMT, either in person or via livestream. This session takes the
form of a collaborative workshop as we invite scholars of digital
ethnography and enthusiasts to join us in discussing ‘what is canon?’ in
digital ethnography. As qualitative research departments around the
world begin to pay more attention to digital ethnography as a method but
teaching on the subject remains in its infancy, we aim to develop a
reading list of essential, exemplary, and exciting digital ethnographic
research. We’ll be tackling such subjects as method, ethics, theory, as
well as different directional interests within the genre such as gaming,
labour, visual culture, new modes of sociality, and other emerging
themes. You can BOOK A TICKET here:


Whether you can attend in person or not, we invite you to add your
favourite digital ethnography readings to our SHARED READING LIST GOOGLE


As usual, we will also be livestreaming the event at 6pm GMT, which you
can watch either live or later here: https://www.youtube.com/user/Zedstergal
You can also join our active Twitter thread about canonical digital
ethnographic work here:


We at the LSE Digital Ethnography Collective are very interested in
finding new ways to collaborate internationally. We hope you appreciate
the communal potential of shared readings lists, livestreamed events and
productive Twitter threads as much as we do!

We invite participants to come (online or virtually) with a list of
digital ethnographic readings that they are working with so that we can
work on building this shared google doc into a master reading list
together during the workshop. We will be sharing the compiled reading
list out to our full mailing list afterwards, in hopes that this will be
a very useful document for all of our members. This session is designed
to benefit both those researchers with a strong background in the
relevant literature looking to develop a reading list and scholars new
to the genre wanting to know where to start. If you do not have a list
of readings already then you are still welcome to attend.

The LSE Digital Ethnography Collective hosts talks and workshops at LSE
in London every fortnight (usually Mondays 6-7:30pm). If you are
interested and would like to hear about future events, then you can join
our mailing list (tinyurl.com/y5a6odte) and follow us on Twitter

All the best,

The KU Leuven Faculty of Theology and Religious Studies is launching a call for
applications for its ReIReS Course on "Digital Humanities and Historical
Religious Studies", which will be held at KU Leuven on March 30 - April
1, 2020, preceding, and in close partnership with the ReIReS Course organized at

The course organized by the KU Leuven Faculty of Theology and Religious Studies
will concentrate on the digitization processes of medieval, modern, and
contemporary historical sources and the diversified study of it; and on the
possibilities and a number of best practices of DH tools. The course will
benefit of the long-term multi- and interdisciplinary collaboration of
historians, theologians, art historians, archivists; and welcomes applications
of PhD students and postdocs in these fields.

The mornings of this course are focused on ongoing digitization projects of the
Maurits Sabbe Library collections, including the projects of the Book Heritage
Lab, the Centre for Capuchins in the Low Countries, and the Centre for the Study
of the Second Vatican Council. In smaller groups the participants will be
introduced to the collections and the opportunities and challenges of their
digitization. In the afternoon short introductions and hands on sessions are
provided on data-modeling, IIIF, text clustering through R and Python, and
historical network research among others.

Applications and Fee: Applications are welcome by March 1, 2020. The school is
open to scholars affiliated to the ReIReS consortium and to max. five persons
from outside the consortium. Scholars from outside the consortium will pay a
registration fee of €395.00.

More information?: You will find more information on the course, its aims and
objectives on the website of ReIReS: https://reires.eu/3965/call-for-

fields of history, theology, and philology.
The course will allow participants to gain first-hand experience of state-of-
the-art online bibliographies, encyclopedias, dictionaries and full-text
databases. It also aims to deepen existing knowledge of text analysis through
digital tools. Finally, their presence at an international academic publishing
house will allow participants to gain insight in (Latin text) publishing
initiatives, both in print and online.

Due assistance will be provided for those not reading Latin, and topics in other
ancient and "vernacular" languages will be treated as well.

Call for Papers: The Power of Books in Bridging Divides

On June 1st and 2nd, 2020 bibliographical and book studies researchers will
gather for the Annual Conference of the Bibliographical Society of Canada at
Congress of the Humanities and Social Sciences at Western University in London,
Ontario. We encourage multidisciplinary engagement on the power of books in
bridging social, ethnic, political, economic, and epistemological divides more
broadly, while forming fresh visions for bibliographical and book studies.

To explore the conference theme, proposals for papers and panels are invited in
the following subject areas:

1. the decolonization and anti-racism of bibliographical and book studies to
redress gaps in representation, approach and/or genre;
2. the evolution of publishing within the diverse minority linguistic, ethnic,
and cultural groups in Canada and the challenges faced by researchers who seek
to document this output;
3. explorations of the many diverse approaches to book culture through
historical, literary, cultural, sociological, technological, and bibliographical
4. confronting the histories of diverse communities of readers, writers,
printers, and publishers;
5. the responsibility of libraries, archives, and museums to diverse communities
in the preservation and access of texts beyond the book and traditional
knowledge formats;
6. the role played by Canadian small presses and campus literary journals in
giving voice to previously unheard voices and as a learning venue for future
writers and publishers; and
7. investigations of social media and digital texts to bridge studies of
publishing, readerships, and authorship across bibliographical and book studies.

In recognition of our gathering in London, proposals that address aspects of the
history, literature and book culture of the Anishinaabek, Haudenosaunee, 
Lūnaapéewak, Attawandaron (Neutral) peoples, and African Canadians, or
consider the wider Congress theme of colonialism and anti-black racism, are
particularly encouraged.

Please submit a 250-word abstract proposal and brief biography in English or in
French (including your full name, professional designation, institutional
affiliation or place) no later than 7 February 2020 to 

Études du livre et bibliographie au Canada

Le 1 et 2 juin 2020, des chercheurs spécialisés en bibliographie et en études 
du livre se rassembleront pour la Rencontre annuelle de la société 
bibliographique du Canada au Congrès des sciences humaines à Western University 
à London, Ontario. Nous encourageons un engagement multidisciplinaire au thème 
général de la capacité des livres à combler les clivages sociaux, ethniques, 
politiques, économiques et épistémologiques, tout en formant de nouvelles 
visions des études bibliographiques et études du livre.

Afin d’explorer la thématique de cette conférence, nous invitons des 
propositions de communications et de panels qui abordent les domaines suivants :

    la décolonisation et l’antiracisme dans les études bibliographiques 
et études du livre pour remédier aux iniquités de représentations, d’approches 
et de genres;
    l’évolution de l’édition auprès de divers groupes minoritaires linguistiques, 
ethniques et culturels au Canada et les défis auxquels sont confrontés les 
chercheurs qui poursuivent la documentation de ces productions;
    l’exploration des approches multiples et variées à la culture du livre 
par le biais d’études historiques, littéraires, culturelles, sociologiques, 
technologiques ou bibliographiques;
    la confrontation des chercheurs face aux histoires des diverses communautés 
de lecteurs, d’écrivains, d’imprimeurs et d’éditeurs;
    la responsabilité des bibliothèques, des archives et des musées envers 
diverses communautés face à la préservation et l’accessibilité des textes 
au-delà des livres et des formats d’information traditionnels; 
    le rôle des presses locales et des journaux littéraires universitaires 
qui permettent de donner une voix aux nouveaux acteurs et de former les futurs 
écrivains et éditeurs;
    l’analyse des réseaux sociaux et des textes numériques visant à combler les 
clivages dans les études en édition, des lectorats et des paternités dans divers 
domaines d’études bibliographiques.

En reconnaissance de notre rassemblement à London, nous accorderons un intérêt 
particulier aux propositions de communications concernant des aspects de 
l’histoire, de la littérature et des cultures du livre des peuples Anishinaabek, 
Heudenosaunee, Lūnaapéewak, Attawandaron (Neutres) et Afro-canadiens, ainsi que 
les propositions qui considèrent de façon plus générale les thèmes de la 
colonisation et du racisme anti-Noir.

Veuillez soumettre un résumé de 250 mots comprenant une courte biographie 
(incluant votre nom complet, votre désignation professionnelle et votre 
affiliation institutionnelle), en français ou en anglais, d’ici le 10 janvier 
2020 à proposals@bsc-sbc.ca.
