Some list members may be interested in our call for Expressions of Interest in undertaking a Marie Curie individual fellowship.
We are the Medieval and Early Modern Studies research group at Newcastle University, UK. These fellowships are for researchers coming to Europe or moving within Europe. Projects in digital editing/TEI/DH are particularly welcome. The call is here: http://research.ncl.ac.uk/mems/mariesklodowska-curiefellowships/
We were successful with this open call last year and several applicants saw the call via this list.
On the date of the deadline, fellows must (i) have at least four years' full-time equivalent research experience, which can include doctoral studies (ii) and/or be in possession of a doctoral degree.
Researchers can be of any nationality. At the date of the deadline researchers must not have resided or carried out their main activity (work, studies, etc.) in the country of the host for more than 12 months in the preceding 3 years. Compulsory national service and/or short stays such as holidays are not taken into account.
If the fellow is resuming research after a career break of at least one year, or is a European national or long term resident returning to Europe after a period outside Europe, a modified mobility rule applies: in these cases the researchers must not have carried out their main activity in the country of their host for more than 3 years in the 5 years immediately prior to the deadline.

JADH2017: "Creating Data through Collaboration"
The Japanese Association for Digital Humanities is pleased to announce
its seventh annual conference, to be held at Doshisha University, Kyoto,
Japan, September 11-12, 2017.
The conference will feature posters, papers and panels. We invite
proposals globally on all aspects of digital humanities, and especially
encourage papers treating topics that deal with practices that aim to
cross borders, for example, between academic fields, media, languages,
cultures, organizations, and so on, as related to the field of digital
As creation of research data -- collection, feature extraction,
annotation, and organization -- is a seminal component of all DH
projects, means and modes of this data-creation have been handled in
various ways as digital approaches have evolved. Recently, the focus on
methods of collaborating in data creation has been renewed with the
rapid growth of projects that are crowd-sourced on the Web. The
re-emergence of data creation based on this approach provides a wider
range of data, as it has the potential to include contributors who are
not only researchers, but also members of the general public. Such a new
possibility should be taken due advantage of, especially given the
difficult situation for the humanities fields in the academy. This year
we strongly encourage you to submit proposals about methods and problems
in collaborative approaches for data collection, especially crowd
sourcing and other forms of public engagement. With this as our
suggested central focus, we nonetheless welcome papers on a broad range
of DH topics. For example:
Research issues, including data mining, information design and modeling,
software studies, and humanities research enabled through the digital
medium; computer-based research and computer applications in literary,
linguistic, cultural and historical studies, including electronic
literature, public humanities, and interdisciplinary aspects of modern
scholarship. Some examples might include text analysis, corpora, corpus
linguistics, language processing, language learning, and endangered
languages; the digital arts, architecture, music, film, theater, new
media and related areas; the creation and curation of humanities digital
resources; the role of digital humanities in academic curricula; The
range of topics covered by Digital Humanities can also be consulted in
the journal Digital Scholarship in the Humanities
(http://dsh.oxfordjournals.org/), Oxford University Press.
Abstracts should be of 500-1000 words in length in English, including title.
Please submit abstracts on the open conference system for conference
below by May 8, 2017.
Presenters will be notified of acceptance on 31 May 2017.

work-in-progress on any of the topics described above as well as
demonstrations of computer technology, software and digital projects. A
separate poster session will open the conference, during which time

with other delegates, and answer questions. Posters will also be on
displayed at various times during the conference, and presenters are
encouraged to provide material and handouts with more detailed
information and URLs.
2. Short papers: Short papers are allocated 10 minutes (plus 5 minutes
for questions) and are suitable for describing work-in-progress and
reporting on shorter experiments and software and tools in early stages
3. Long papers: Long papers are allocated 20 minutes (plus 10 minutes
for questions) and are intended for presenting substantial unpublished
research and reporting on significant new digital resources or
4. Panels: Panels (90 minutes) are comprised of either: (a) Three long
papers on a joint theme. All abstracts should be submitted together with
a statement, of approximately 500-1000 words, outlining the session
