Upcoming Talks

Here’s an update on some of our up-coming talks. More to follow soon, hopefully, when we hear back from the organizers of the DH-conference in Cracow in July 2016:

  • Our two abstract for the annual meeting of the German-speaking DH association in Leipzig (7-12 March) have just been accepted, and we’re looking forward to discussions and feedback, as well as meeting up with colleagues and friends. Alexander Dunst and Rita Hartel will be speaking about “The Corpus Analysis of Multimodal Narratives: The Example of Graphic Novels” (“Die Corpusanalyse multimodaler Erzählungen am Beispiel graphischer Romane”), and  Jochen Laubrock, Sven Hohenstein and our student helper Alexander Thoß will give a paper titled “Moving around the City of Glass”. See the conference website at: http://www.dig-hum.de/jahrestagung-dhd2016
  • Alexander Dunst will also be speaking at the “Digital American Studies Meeting,” organized by Marc Priewe, which will take place at the University of Stuttgart on 24-25 February and intends to promote the – so far somewhat slow – uptake of the digital humanities within American Studies in Germany; and at the joint Irish and British American Studies Association (IAAS/BAAS, 7-9 April) conference at Queen’s University, Belfast, as part of a panel titled “Digital Scholarship in American Studies”. Here’s the link to that conference: http://www.qub.ac.uk/sites/baasiaas2016/
  • Jochen Laubrock will be teaching a graduate course in eye tracking in Athens (4-6 April), and speaking at the Institutskolloquium Psychologie in Würzburg (18 January), the International Meeting of the Psychonomic Society in Granada (5-8 May), and the workshop “Using eye movements to study literacy development” in Southampton (18 August).
