CALL FOR REVIEWERS: EADH 2018

9 Apr 2018 (All day)

The 1st EADH Congress, to be held in Galway, Ireland from 7-9 December 2018 is seeking proposal reviewers. The broad theme of the conference will be „Data in Digital Humanities”.

This conference will implement the EADH multi-lingualism policy – that is, to foster multilingualism as an appreciation and recognition that our studies are closely tied to the cultures which nourish them, and that in this relationship the specificity of language is an essential component. Thus the EADH endeavours to promote diversity and dialogue among cultures and languages, and to avoid the privileging of one culture/language to the exclusion of others.

In practical terms EADH in its conferences accepts proposals in English, French, German, Italian, Spanish; and other languages subject to the availability of reviewers.

The EADH is seeking to establish a wide and as varied as possible a pool of reviewers for this conference.

Reviewer candidates must meet at least two of the following requirements:

  • Be currently associated (or have been recently associated) professionally with an institutional DH program, project, or initiative within the last three years.
  • Hold at least a Master’s degree or equivalent in a DH-relevant discipline (including, but not limited to, the Humanities, Social or Natural Sciences, Library Science, Fine Arts, etc.)
  • Have published a DH-specific article or essay in a scholarly journal or volume (either print or electronic)

Candidates should state all the languages in which they can review proposals.

The conference Call for Papers will be published shortly. It is expected that the review process will take place during May and June 2018.

Please ask your nominees to submit their information and qualifications, and to indicate their willingness to serve as reviewers on the form below. Forms should be returned by email before April 9 to eadh.conference.2018@gmail.com
