The Digital First Nations, Native American, and Indigenous Studies
committee invites submissions of proposals for "Digital Research in First
Nations, Native American, and Indigenous Studies around the Globe", a
day-long meeting, July 21, 2020 at Carleton University in Ottawa, Canada.
Support for accepted submissions will include subvention of airfare,
housing, and transportation costs as well as conference fees.

Submit a Proposal: https://forms.gle/meJdQF8rMX1UppXm7

Deadline for Submissions: April 1, 2020, 2019 11:59 PM EST

Notification of Acceptances: April 15, 2020

"Digital Research in First Nations, Native American, and Indigenous Studies
around the Globe" seeks to bring together scholars and community
practitioners working in digital First Nations, Native American, and
Indigenous Studies globally. The workshop seeks to provide participants the
opportunity to present current digital humanities research and methods
related to the estimated 370 million Indigenous people around the globe.
We are particularly interested in community-based approaches to digital
research and infrastructure that support community cultural heritage and
information-based approaches to sovereignty. Documentation, mobilization,
analysis, stewardship, and Indigneous technologies can serve as focal
points of workshop participants.

Organizers welcome three different submission formats:


   Posters: Poster proposals present projects, software tools, or methods
   within the context of Indigenous research and community. Posters will be
   24-36 inches (610 x 914 mm). We are unable to provide access to monitors,
   electrical outlets, or furniture to support laptops and other technologies.
   Poster presentations are intended to elicit conversations and offer
   opportunity to exchange ideas one-on-one with attendees. Final versions of
   posters will be published as part of the workshop proceedings.

   Short presentation proposals are intended to be dynamic 7-minute
   presentations appropriate for reporting on works in progress, limited
   scholarly interventions, or for describing a singular tool or project.
   Short presentation submissions seek to open dialogues among scholars
   working on related topics. Final versions of short presentations will be
   published as part of the workshop proceedings.

   Pre-circulated papers should deal with substantial completed research,
   report the development of new methodologies in digital Indigenous studies;
   or present rigorous theoretical, speculative, or critical discussions. Each
   pre-circulated paper will participate in a focused review and critique.
   Pre-circulated papers will be published as part of the workshop
   proceedings. Submissions should include a 500 word abstract; the paper
   itself  will be due for pre-circulation on May 15, 2020. Papers themselves
   may be as short as 2,500 words or as long as 10,000 words. Participation
   and funding will be contingent on receipt of the pre-circulated paper by
   June 1, 2020.

Concerns that might be reflected in presentations include: How do we as
scholars responsibly engage in digital research in Native communities and
with Native materials held by cultural heritage institutions? How do
organizations and institutions navigate the cultural, legal, and ethical
contexts of the communities whose objects they hold? How can software
solutions be leveraged to build Indigenous research communities? What
ethical frameworks are available for thinking through and challenging third
party access to Indigneous cultural heritage? What technologies will allow
Indigenous peoples to 'reclaim' lands and ways of being (Duarte 5). How
can we interpret issues primary to Indigneous peoples through technology?
What research models exist for scholars and tribal communities who desire
to launch their own digital projects but may have concerns about resources,
access, infrastructure, stewardship, dissemination, and preservation?
Finally, how do we facilitate transnational and international digital
Indigenous projects at scale?

The workshop will result in a directory of digital projects related to
digital Indigenous studies that will be made available publicly.
Participants will have the opportunity to collaborate on a white paper
resulting from the workshop. In addition, all accepted participants will be
welcome to submit their work for consideration in a peer-reviewed journal
issue on "Digital Research in First Nations, Native American, and
Indigenous Studies around the Globe."

Applicants should be prepared to submit the following:

   -   Title of Submission
   -   Name of Author(s)
   -   Contact Information of Author(s)
   -   Submission Abstract (500 words maximum; URLs or appropriate digital
   resources may be substituted with a 250 word maximum explanation of
   relevance to the workshop for posters and short presentations only).
   -   250 word maximum Statement of interest that speaks to the impact of the
   workshop on one's personal, professional, or communal goals
   -   Acceptance of the ADHO Conference Code of Conduct
   -   Acceptance of the Data Privacy Agreement

The above will be reviewed by workshop organizers with accepted
applications receiving funding to support their participation in the
workshop and the Digital Humanities 2020 Conference.

This workshop was funded by IUPUI via an Institute for Arts in the
Humanities grant as well as the Institut des études canadiennes et
autochtones | Institute of Canadian and Aboriginal Studies at the
University of Ottawa.

Dear colleagues,

Here is the call for papers of the "Tool Criticism 3.0" Workshop, organized
by ADHO-Special Interest Group  "Digital Literary Stylistics" (SIG-DLS) for
the DH2020 Conference in Ottawa (CA). We hope you'll find the subject
Looking forward to receiving your proposals,
All the best,
Francesca (for the SIG-DLS Steering Committee)


Tool Criticism 3.0

Present, past, and future methods in Digital Literary Stylistics (DLS)

After the success of the second edition in Utrecht
(https://dev.clariah.nl/files/dh2019/boa/1071.html), the ADHO-Special
Interest Group "Digital Literary Stylistics" (SIG-DLS) organizes a new
version of its Tool criticism workshop for DH2020 Ottawa. This year, it
will be open to contributions of all interested researchers and it will
also set a focus on historical tool criticism.

The main goal of the workshop is to provide more critical awareness on the
use of tools in DLS.This type of tool criticism can only be stimulated in
two ways: (a) by a direct confrontation with user feedback and
reports,which usually remain  "in the background" of research papers; (b)
via reconstructions of the historical evolution of tools and methodologies
(which are never a given, but are built on top of complex --and sometimes
unpredictable-- research paths). The workshop is a natural extension of the DLS
Tool Inventory (DLS-TI) (https://dls.hypotheses.org/774), which gathers
information on the practices of the various traditions present in DLS.

The workshop is scheduled for a pre-conference slot (the date pending
confirmation). It will be structured as a mini-conference, where
participants will be asked to present short critical reports (20 minutes
each) on their use of tools in DLS. We encourage submissions on the
following topics:

   - user interface criticism;
   - criticism of implied/hidden epistemologies (anatomy of tools);
   - theoretical tool criticism (e.g. issues in modeling);
   - historical tool criticism;
   - biases in DLS studies;
   - replication studies.

Submission details

Proposals should be sent by 15 April 2020 to simone.rebora@univr.it. They
should contain a title and a brief abstract (max 300 words).

Also feel free to enter contributions to the DLS Tool Inventory (DLS-TI)
(https://dls.hypotheses.org/774), if relevant.

Acceptances will be notified by 15 May, 2020.
