CFP: Contexts for Literary and Artistic Production

“Contexts for Literary and Artistic Production” (19-20 June, 2015) at Trinity College in Dublin, Ireland will examine the relationship between creative output and economic forces in the long 19th century.

This conference aims to encourage dialogue and collaboration within and between the humanities, digital humanities, economics and social sciences concerning literary and artistic culture and the use of quantitative and qualitative methodologies and information technology and their impact on existing research questions, accepted critical and theoretical paradigms, and historiographies.

The Literary Diaspora and the Digital

The Diasporic Literary Archives Project will be holding its final meeting at Yale University on October 23rd and 24th, 2014. The workshop is titled “Diaspora and the Digital” and will review the challenges and the opportunities for born-digital literary archives and for digital humanities projects. It will investigate new forms of scholarship and new patterns of research made possible by changing archival technologies; assess the implications for accessibility and for the politics of location; and evaluate from an international perspective the risks that may follow from unequal access to these technologies.
