Textual Editing in the Digital Age
Newcastle University, 30 March-3 April 2020

Animating Text (Newcastle University) and the Institute of English Studies
(School of Advanced Study, University of London) are pleased to
announce Textual
Editing in the Digital Age, an intensive 5-day workshop series that will
focus on digital methods for creating and analysing scholarly texts.

The sessions will be convened by James Cummings (Newcastle / Text Encoding
Initiative), Tiago Sousa Garcia (Newcastle), and Christopher Ohge (London),
with guest tutors Peter Stadler (Carl-Maria-von-Weber-Gesamtausgabe /
University of Paderborn) and Kate Simpson (Glasgow / Livingstone Online
Project). The training will consist of alternating lectures and practical
workshop sessions on textual editing with XML technologies, including
a thorough grounding in Text Encoding Initiative (TEI) guidelines as well
as introductions to XPath searching and TEI publication tools. Also planned
are afternoon presentations of case studies, a visit to Newcastle's special
collections library, and social outings in and around Newcastle.

Registration is open to all, but preference will be given to MA and PhD
students and early career staff from Northern England, Scotland, and Northern

Space is limited. To apply, please send us an expression of interest, with
a brief CV, to animating.text@newcastle.ac.uk by 22 March 2020.

CLIR's Digital Library Federation (https://www.diglib.org/) is pleased to
announce that we have opened Calls for Proposals for our conferences happening
over a week this November in Baltimore, Maryland: the DLF Forum, Learn@DLF,
Digital Preservation 2020, and this year, CLIR's Digitizing Hidden Collections

For all events, we welcome submissions from members and nonmembers alike.
Students, practitioners, and others from any related field are invited to submit
for one conference or multiple (though, different proposals for each, please).

  *   The DLF Forum (https://forum2020.diglib.org/)
(#DLFforum, https://twitter.com/hashtag/dlfforum, November 9-11), our signature
event, includes digital library practitioners and others from member
institutions and the broader community, for whom it serves as a meeting place,
marketplace, and congress. In these respects, the event is a chance for
attendees to conduct business, present work, share experiences, practices and
information, and assess DLF's programs and progress with community
participation and input. Learn more and check out the CFP here:

  *   Learn@DLF (https://forum2020.diglib.org/call-for-proposals)
(#LearnAtDLF (https://twitter.com/hashtag/learnatdlf), November 8) is our
dedicated pre-conference workshop day for digging into tools, techniques,
workflows, and concepts. Through engaging, hands-on sessions, attendees will
gain experience with new tools and resources, exchange ideas, and develop and
share expertise with fellow community members. Learn more and check out the CFP
here: https://forum2020.diglib.org/learnatdlf/

  *   Digital Preservation (https://ndsa.org/meetings)
(#digipres20(https://twitter.com/hashtag/digipres20), November 11-12),
NDSA (https://ndsa.org/)'s major meeting and conference, will help to chart
future directions for both the NDSA and digital stewardship, and is expected to
be a crucial venue for intellectual exchange, community-building, development of
best practices, and national-level agenda-setting in the field. Learn more and
check out the CFP for this year's event, with the theme Get Active with
Digital Preservation, here: https://ndsa.org/digital-preservation-2020-cfp/

  *   CLIR's Digitizing Hidden Collections
Symposium (https://www.clir.org/hiddencollections/2020-symposium/), 
#digHC(https://twitter.com/hashtag/digHC, November 11-12), is a two-day event
for CLIR's Digitizing Hidden Collections grant recipients and the wider
library and archives communities to celebrate and reflect on five years of
project work. Recipients' collective experiences will create opportunities to\n\n
discuss the current state and future potential of digitization practice in
collecting institutions, including how the digital cultural record can better
reflect the diversity of human experience, how law and ethics affect strategies
for access, and how technologies and standards can improve discovery and
learning. Learn more and check out the CFP here:


Please keep in mind that submissions for the Digitizing Hidden Collections
Symposium should come from current or former participants in CLIR Digitizing
Hidden Collections grant projects.

Session options range from 2-minute lighting talks at the Forum and DigiPres to
half-day workshops at Learn@DLF, with many options in between.
New this year, we've put together a video with some tips for successful
conference proposals. We encourage everyone to watch and incorporate these
suggestions clearly into your submissions. Watch the video here:


The deadline for all opportunities is Monday, April 27 at 11:59pm Eastern Time.
