“Усложнение гуманитария: дигитальная учёность в эмпирическом исследовании”:  летний цифровой коллоквиум

 complecatedhumantarianЧто должен чувствовать гуманитарий, внезапно осознавший, что, продолжая говорить прозой, он все в большей степени производит знание «цифрой»? Как быть с аналитическим инструментарием, все ещё скроенным по мерке лингвистического поворота, в эпоху гегемонии софта («медиума второго порядка»)? Что изменяется в социальном эмпирическом исследовании по мере его дигитализации? Как справиться с цифровым разбуханием данных, не теряя аналитического драйва в пучине датификации? Что побуждает нас производить всё более и более «красивые данные»? Может ли социальный исследователь выдержать эту гонку, не превратившись в компьютерщика и дизайнера? Как пережить испытание «цифрой» и остаться качественником?

Обнинский цифровой проект, реализуемый на базе Школы гуманитарных исследований РАНХиГС (Москва) при поддержке Фонда Михаила Прохорова, приглашает всех дигитально озабоченных гуманитариев и социальных исследователей, занятых в эмпирических проектах, к обсуждению «компьютерных» мутаций в практике, политике и этике исследовательской работы. Векторы для усложнения:

  • большие малые умные данные: анализируй или умри;
  • облачные технологии, гисы и так далее: аффекты и эффекты визуализации;
  • дигитальное тело качественной аналитики: тэги, ноды, зумы;
  • изобретатели поневоле: рождение софта из практики эмпирического исследования;
  • от баз данных к аналитическим платформам: что дает гуманитарию революция в сетевой архитектуре?;
  • интерфейс проекта: технологии представления эмпирических исследований на разных фазах реализации;
  • дигитальное расширение качественного исследования: риски и бонусы;
  • трудности перевода:  гуманитарий versus программист;
  • новый сизиф: цифровой труд исследователя;
  • знание Web 2.0 : этика, право, экономика, политика;

Цифровой коллоквиум будет работать на площадке РАНХиГС (Москва)  12 – 13 сентября.  Тезисы докладов объемом до 500 слов вместе с краткой информацией об авторе просьба направлять по адресу: obninskproject@gmail.com до 25 июля. Круг участников определится к 1 августа. Организаторы готовы рассмотреть вопрос о полной или частичной компенсации проезда и проживания участников и надеются на живое и эффективное сотрудничество.

Scholarly Publications Support Program, Canadian Foundation for Ukrainian Studies

The program assists with the publication of scholarly works in Ukrainian Studies by Canadian academic presses. The Program provides support annually up to a maximum of $6,500 (CDN) or half the cost of publication, whichever is less. Approved grants are issued directly to the publisher and not to the author/originator of the work. The Program supports primarily original works in the field of Ukrainian studies to be published by Canadian academic presses. Publication of translations, new postsecondary textbooks, or reprints of works of exceptional scholarly value and need may be considered if no original works are eligible. Periodicals will not be considered, nor will belletristic works.

Works will be evaluated for their:

  • scholarly excellence;
  • usefulness and relevance to scholars and students in the field; and
  • originality by-works of potential use and interest to a broader rather than limited readership;
  • works dealing with the history, culture, society and heritage of Ukraine and Ukrainians generally;
  • works relating to Ukraine, the Ukrainian community in Canada, or the Ukrainian diaspora elsewhere, in that order.

Who may apply: Any scholar whose original work in the field of Ukrainian studies is to be published by a Canadian academic press may apply. Preference will be given to scholars affiliated with Canadian universities or other Canadian postsecondary institutions. Applications will be accepted only from the author/originator of the work in question after a commitment to publish from an established Canadian academic publisher and a commitment to cofundhave been secured. Applications for support after a publication has appeared in print will not be considered.

Application requirements: Applications must be received by the foundation’s office by October 1 and must include the following documents and information:

  • a cover letter from the author/originator of the work in question;
  • a letter from the intended publisher confirming that the manuscript has been reviewed by competent academic experts and has been recommended for publication;
  • an estimate of the cost of publication, including a budget breakdown;
  • a statement detailing the financial contribution to be made by the publisher and other funding agencies (if any) covering hard costs;
  • a letter or letters from funding agencies (if these are known) stating dollar commitment to the project;
  • anticipated specifications (number of pages, press run) of the finished work and its anticipated date of publication; and
  • a copy of the manuscript’s “preliminary material”—the preface, introduction and table of contents).

Credits: A book that receives the foundation’s financial support must carry acknowledgment of that support (including the foundation’s logo) in a customary manner and place in the book. The publisher shall provide CFUS with three (3) complimentary copies of the publication. Decision: Decisions regarding applications under this program rest with the foundation’s Executive Committee and are final once made. All submissions (including supporting documentation) are destroyed within 3 months of the announcement of the final decision. No materials are returned to applicants or kept by the foundation. The foundation reserves the right not to award any grant in years when no submission is deemed worthy of support by the Program’s review committee.

A Quarter Century of Post-Communism: Interdisciplinary Perspectives – International Conference (University of Canterbury, Christchurch, New Zealand, 2-3 February 2015)

The conference is organized by Australasian Association for Communist and Post-Communist Studies, Australian and New Zealand Slavists’ Association, and Ukrainian Studies Association of Australia and New Zealand. When the people and their political leaders overthrew communist party rule in the countries of former communist Eastern Europe they were led by a strong desire to eliminate the ideological, political, economic and socio-cultural divisions that separated the West and East in Europe and the world. The following quarter century of post-communist reforms, an extended accession process and the integration of eleven post-communist countries into the enlarged European Union (EU) have successfully eliminated many European Cold-War divisions. Yet, the political and socio-economic transformations of post-communist states are still on-going. The differences between the ‘old’ western and ‘new’ eastern members of the EU are still remarkable in regards to both economic development and many socio-cultural norms and values. Moreover, new differences have emerged between the EU and non-EU post-communist states in many respects; those related to the tumultuous developments in Ukraine and the sinking of most post-Soviet states into authoritarianism being the most visible among them.

The conference organisers welcome papers which examine developments in the countries of post-communist Europe and post-Soviet region from a broad range of disciplines, including but not limited to: sociology, political science, EU studies, economics, history, languages, literary and cultural studies. Scholars who provide new theoretical and/or empirical insights into the events and developments from the communist and pre-communist past of these countries are also strongly encouraged to submit abstracts and present their papers at the conference.

Please submit abstracts of no more than 300 words to the conference coordinator or organisers listed below by 1 September 2014. The organisers expect to inform participants of the acceptance of their papers by 15 September 2014. Conference organisers expect to secure a guest-edited issue of an international peer-reviewed journal. Conference participants will be invited after the conference to submit an extended and enhanced version of their papers for possible publication in this Issue.

For any further information please contact one of the conference organisers: Dr Milenko Petrovic (milenko.petrovic@canterbury.ac.nz ); Associate Professor Dr Evgeny Pavlov, (evgeny.pavlov@canterbury.ac.nz); Associate Professor Dr Natalia Chaban (natalia.chaban@canterbury.ac.nz).

AAH2015 41st Annual Conference: Subversive Practices and Imagined Realities in Central, Eastern and Southern Europe since 1945 (Norwich, UK, April 9-11, 2015)

Deadline: November 10, 2014.
In communist Central, Eastern and Southern Europe, the building of socialism had as its final endpoint a utopia that provided the ultimate motivation: sacrifice now, reward later. In its sheer impossibility, it was an elusive and illusory dream that formed the foundation for everyday life under totalitarian regime. Within this visionary world, artists such as Alexander Mlynarcik (Slovakia), Marko Kovacic (Slovenia) or Mark Verlan (Moldova), created their own parallel worlds, utopias, dystopias, and fantastic domains. In many cases, alternative and nonofficial artists’ works served to carve out a unique space in the so-called “grey zone” of Europe, which offered an alternative not only to state-sponsored socialism, but also to Western capitalism, both of which many artists and dissidents viewed with equal suspicion. This panel will examine a range of artistic ideas, participative strategies, subversive practices, networks and projects (imaginary or real), which demonstrate an alternative sphere of thinking and modes of creative living, and which possibly attempt to move beyond the classical binary systems of West and East – all from within an everyday world order that seemed to be set in stone. We also invite papers that offer a more differentiated view, even extending to the post-socialist period, aiming to re-evaluate the nexus of aesthetics and politics and produce new interpretations and analytical approaches regarding counterculture and censorship, which explore the relational aspects of following binaries: official and unofficial, political and apolitical, permitted and prohibited – under totalitarian rule.

If you would like to offer a paper, please email BOTH session convenors directly, providing an abstract of a proposed paper of 30 minutes. The deadline for abstracts is November 10, 2014. Your paper abstract should be no more than 250 words, and include your name and institution affiliation (if any). You should receive an acknowledgement of receipt of your submission within two weeks from the session convenors. Unfortunately no fee is payable to speakers; all speakers must register and pay to attend the conference.
