We are happy to launch the call for participation for the DARIAH Annual Event 2020, which will take place in Zagreb, Croatia from May 26 to 29. Topic of this year’s event is Scholarly Primitives.
It has been twenty years since John Unsworth first formulated scholarly primitives as a set of recursive and interrelated functions that form the foundations of research activities across disciplines, theoretical frameworks or eras. Ever since, these basic scholarly functions — discovering, annotating, comparing, referring, sampling, illustrating and representing — have proved to be useful not only for categorizing the fundamentals of knowledge production in the humanities, but also as a framework for conceptualizing Digital Humanities tools which support these processes.
The time is ripe to revisit and freshly interrogate both the notion and the scope of scholarly primitives. To what extent does this particular set of scholarly primitives still correspond to our understanding of what humanities scholars do on a day-to-day basis? Has our understanding of research workflows changed over time significantly enough to require a new classification?
We are also happy to announce John Unsworth as a keynote speaker at the Annual Event 2020.
The upcoming DARIAH Annual Event combines different forms of encounter and exchange between DARIAH researchers and the wider research communities. The call for participation is divided into two streams:
- Pre-conference activities
- WG Meetings
- Conference activities
- Synergy Sessions
For all contributions, a title and an abstract (max. 500 words) are to be submitted via the SciencesConf system. The abstracts will be published as a book of abstracts. The deadline for all submissions is 5 January 2020.
Please note that all submissions will be subject to review by at least two members of the Programme Committee. The Programme Committee will evaluate the quality of the proposal and reserves the right to decline proposals or assign them to a different category, if necessary. Notification of acceptance can be expected by 14 February.
