2014 is a transitional year for centerNet as we adopt our new governance structure. Consequently, this International Executive Meeting will be highly participatory, with extended time for unstructured group work and sharing of ideas, in the THATCamp or Unconference Model (also known as Open Space Technologies).
The editorial team of centerNet’s new DHCommons journal is thrilled to request submissions for its inaugural issue. We seek mid-stage digital projects who wish peer review and feedback that will contribute to the project’s development.
DHCommons has a new editorial board! As centerNet’s flagship publication, DHCommons has taken on the task of peer reviewing mid-stage digital humanities projects from around the world in multiple languages. These new board members will assist the Founding Co-Editors-in-Chief Ryan Cordell (Northeastern University), Isabel Galina (Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México), and Laurent Romary (Humboldt Universität Berlin and INRIA) to prepare DHCommons’ Vision Statement, Submission Guidelines, and Review Guidelines.
Call for participation in DíaHD (Día de Humanidades Digitales) to be held on 10th of June 2013. Similar to DayofDH the aim of the project is to document for one day what digital humanists do. This particular version focuses on digital humanists from Portuguese and Spanish speaking countries or researchers from other parts of the world that work primarily in these languages.
We hope to provide a forum that will help us identify digital humanists in these regions as well as providing them with the opportunity to share their work:
The centerNet Executive Committee seeks nominations for Advisory Board members for its new publication, DHCommons, which will provide peer review for mid-stage digital projects. DHCommons aims to provide a truly global picture of the DH community. To that end, its leadership will be comprised of members from each of centerNet’s regions.
centerNet has recently updated its website, and we are looking for volunteers to translate the new pages. If you are interested in helping us with this important international outreach, please contact centerNet Secretary Jean Bauer at jean_bauer [at] brown [dot] edu
