The Organising Committee and the European Society for Textual Scholarship
 cordially invite you to participate in the
Sixteenth Annual Conference of the European Society for Textual Scholarship
(ESTS 2019), which will be held at the University of Málaga (Spain) on November
28th-29th, 2019. This year's theme for the conference will be: Textual
Scholarship in the 21st Century.

Textual Criticism has travelled a long path of both theoretical and practical
approaches to editing. The advent of new technologies has undoubtedly
contributed to new attitudes and methods in the field. However, there is still a
long way to go and many questions remain open to debate in textual scholarship:
In which direction is textual scholarship moving?
What are the specific challenges, but also opportunities, that lie before
textual scholars?
What is the scholarly, intellectual and cultural role of textual editing and how
can we realize that role?
What kind of new tools, methods, audiences are available to textual scholars?

A suggested, albeit not prescriptive, list of themes for conference
presentations includes:

Textual scholarship across the centuries
Do new technologies change our editorial principles?
Textual scholarship: methods and tools
Textual scholarship in the digital humanities
New models of editing
Editing context

as well as other more general topics that have always been fostered by the

Selection of texts worth editing
The target audience
Scholarly editions: use and users

The organizing committee welcomes abstracts of up to 300 words for 20-minute
papers until 21 June 2019. For the full CfP, which includes more detailed
submission guidelines, information on alternative session formats, confirmed
keynote speakers, and registration fees, please visit the ESTS website

Dear all,

You are welcome to submit your paper/poster/workshop proposal to the 7th DH
Estonia conference

Use of Digital Cultural Heritage in Research and Education
4-6 December 2019,

The conference aims to focus on how the user habits as well as needs and
requirements could influence the practices of memory institutions, such as
museums, archives and libraries who are striving to increase the volume of
digitised sources of cultural heritage. We hope to examine the using and
designing of cultural heritage collections through a variety of disciplines
ranging from art to history, from museum studies to media studies, and from
archival studies to literary studies.

Presentations and discussions on all areas associated with digital humanities,
digital memory and digital culture are welcome.

The list of possible topics for your inspiration:

- Digital collections of cultural heritage and their innovative usage
- Perspectives of cultural analytics as a source of transdisciplinary knowledge
- Transforming handwritten documents to machine-readable text
- The usage of digitised collections of GLAM institutions (galleries, libraries,
archives, museums)
- Methodologies for analysing digital memory documents and data
- Digital memory data modelling, visualisation and presentation
- Usage of cultural heritage sources in creating digital tools for education
- Use of crowdsourcing in creating museum collections
- User in archives and his/her expectations
- Personal digital storytelling and heritage collections
- Questioning the borders of literature
- Digital narration and cultural heritage resources

Long papers (abstract max 1 500 words)
