Call for papers: Digital Humanities and Information Visualization

Call for papers: Digital Humanities and Information Visualization:
Innovation and Integration

SIG-AH and SIG-VIS (Arts & Humanities, Visualization-Images-Sound) of
ASIST are joining forces to examine the digital humanities and
information visualization with a group of papers to be published in an
upcoming special issue of the Bulletin of the American Society for
Information Science and Technology. Geotags, participatory content,
automatic classification methods, statistical analyses, visualization
techniques and other technological methods have enhanced the pedagogy
and scholarship within the humanities in recent years. With this in
mind papers are being sought which present an overview of the digital
humanities and information visualization, or which address the current
and potential future intersection of the two topics. Special topics
for your consideration include: the development of digital
technologies and digital humanities tools, data mining applications in
the humanities, visualization techniques, the use and re-use of
historical data sets, and innovative practices and definitions within
the digital humanities and information visualization. We also eagerly
invite topics of your choosing which address any aspect of technology
within humanities.

Papers should be approximately 1000-2000 words in length and submitted
by December 31, 2011 to: Sarah Buchanan and Joan
Beaudoin . We welcome you to contact either
of us in the interim to discuss potential papers and we look forward
to hearing from you.
