Viral Networks workshop on Medical History, Bethesda, Maryland January 28-30, 2018

December 28, 2017 Bethesda, Maryland

 

via Tom Ewing:

Organizers of the Viral Networks workshop seek proposals for Contributing Scholars who will present work in progress using the tools and methods of network analysis to advance scholarship at the intersection of medical history and digital humanities. Viral Networks will pursue an innovative approach to collaborative scholarly publication that combines virtual editing environments with a face-to-face two day workshop hosted by the National Library of Medicine at the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda, Maryland, on January 28-30, 2018. Contributing scholars will commit to share works in progress and engage in networked learning as they revise their contributions in a collaborative framework. Proposals are especially welcome from advanced graduate students, faculty and librarians new to the field, and experienced scholars interested in new approaches to research. The outcome of the workshop will be a publication that includes chapters from contributing scholars and introductory essays by consulting scholars, using innovative tools in digital publication that ensure open access, broad dissemination, and scholarly rigor. Proposals are welcome from faculty, librarians, and graduate students in any field who use methods from the digital humanities and medical history. Proposals that address medical history topics in global contexts, focus on underrepresented populations and communities, and address questions of identity, power, and equity are particularly encouraged. Proposals must be submitted using an online form, available here and below, which asks for the following:

• Name, email, institutional affiliation, and position

• Title of paper and research keywords

• Abstract (300 characters, including spaces)

• Personal statement (1000 characters, including spaces)

• Proposal (4000 characters, including spaces)

• Academic record (2000 characters, including spaces)

• Commitment to participate in all stages of the workshop

• Request for travel bursary

The abstract, personal statement, and proposal should explain how your research project engages the digital humanities and medical history. The evaluation criteria for proposals will include the following elements:

• Discussion of the ways in which network analysis informs the research project;

• Description of chapter’s data sources, historiographical contribution, and methods;

• Explanation of how the workshop chapter relates to applicant’s overall research agenda

• Contribution of the chapter to understanding digital humanities and medical history

Proposals are due by November 8, 2017. Accepted papers will be notified by November 15, 2017. Contributing Scholars must attend the whole workshop, from the afternoon of January 28 through midday on January 30, 2018. Lodging will be provided for Contributing Scholars. Limited travel bursaries are available for Contributing Scholars with limited institutional resources. Questions should be directed to project director Tom Ewing (etewing@vt.edu). More information is available from the workshop website: viralnetworks.org.
