CALL FOR PAPERS

We invite submissions of papers to a special issue of the journal 
”Language Resources and Evaluation”. The special issue will focus on the 
use of language technology for digital humanities and will have the 
title: Language Technology for Digital Humanities.

MOTIVATION:

The use of digital resources and tools across humanities disciplines has 
steadily increased, giving rise to new research paradigms and associated 
methods that are commonly subsumed under the term ”digital humanities”. 
Digital humanities does not constitute a new discipline in itself, but 
rather a new approach to humanities research that cuts across different 
existing humanities disciplines. While digital humanities extends well 
beyond language-based research, textual resources and spoken language 
materials play a central role in most humanities disciplines. Applying 
LT tools and data for digital humanities research implies new 
perspectives on these resources regarding domain adaptation, 
interoperability, technical requirements, documentation, and usability 
of user interfaces.

TOPICS:

We invite original contributions on completed work, not published before 
and not under consideration for publication elsewhere. Specific topics 
include, but are not limited to:

* Case studies of using language technology and/or language resources 
with the goal of finding new answers to existing research questions in a 
particular humanities discipline or addressing entirely new research 
questions

* Case studies of expanding the functionality of existing language 
processing tools in order to be able to address research questions in 
digital humanities

* The design of new language processing tools as well as annotation 
tools for spoken and written language, showcasing their use in digital 
humanities research

* Domain adaption of rule-based, statistical, or machine-learning models 
for language processing tools in digital humanities research

* Challenges posed for language processing tools when used on diachronic 
data, language variation data, or literary texts

* Showcasing the use of language processing tools in humanities 
disciplines such as anthropology, gender studies, history, literary 
studies, philosophy, political science, and theology

SUBMISSION:

Accepted papers will have a length of 20-30 pages, excluding references.

Authors are advised to use the online manuscript submission for the 
journal. Make sure to select the special issue when asked to provide the 
article type. More information, including formatting instructions for 
authors can be found on the journal's webpage at:

Authors are requested to send a brief email to the guest editors 
([log in to unmask] <mailto:[log in to unmask]>) indicating their 
intention to participate as soon as possible, including their contact 
information and the topic they intend to address in their submission. 
Questions regarding the special issue should be sent to the same address.
