Conference: Computational Methods for Literary-
Historical Textual Studies. 3-5 July 2018 at
De Montfort University

The Centre for Textual Studies at De Montfort University
in Leicester, England, is running a three-day international
conference to  showcase and explore the latest methods for
analyzing literary and historical texts using computers.
A particular focus will be the ways in which literary
and historical scholarship will turn increasingly
algorithmic in the future as we invent wholly new
kinds of questions to ask of our texts because
we have wholly new ways to investigate them. The
conference will bring together, and put into fruitful
dialogue, scholars using traditional literary and
historical methods and those exploring and inventing
new computational methods, to their mutual benefit.

Proposals are invited for 20-minute papers on our
topic, which might cover such matters as:

* More markup or smarter algorithms?: The future
of text analysis.

* Is anything just not computable in literary-historical
textual studies, and does it matter?

* Where are we with Optical Character Recognition?

* Are texts Orderly Hierarchies of Content Objects,
really?

* Can (should?) one person try to learn traditional
and digital methods of textual scholarship?

* XML but not TEI: Using roll-your-own schemas

* New developments in Natural Language Processing

* Regularizing historical spelling variation: Is
it necessary? How can we do it?

* Getting started with digital textual analysis: Reports
from unwearied beginners

* Is it too easy to get results with computers and
too hard to avoid big errors?

* Teaching textual analysis using computers

* Does it matter if non-computational colleagues
don't understand our work?

* Showcasing new technologies

* Is digital practice changing textual theories?

* When is a source text digital transcription good
enough?

* Teamwork versus lone scholarship: Does working
digitally make a difference?

* Where does textual analysis meet digital editing?

The conference is generously funded by the UK's Arts
and Humanities Research Council, which includes the
provision of eight student bursaries, worth 200 GBP each,
to help cover the costs of attending to give a paper.
Students wanting to apply for bursaries should indicate
so in the paper proposal.

To apply to give a paper, please send the title of
the paper and a description (200-300 words) to
Prof Gabriel Egan <[log in to unmask]>. If you are
a student applying for one of the bursaries, please
say so in your proposal and add a couple of sentences
describing your circumstances in a way that makes us
want to give you the bursary.

DEADLINE for paper proposals: 1 May 2018.

Regards

Gabriel Egan
