CFP: Materia on the Move: Trade & Colonisation of Collections – Digital Studies in Provenance

Submissions are currently being accepted to participate in the workshop, “Materia on the Move: Trade & Colonisation of Collections – Digital Studies in Provenance,” which will take place in conjunction with the 2019 Digital Humanities Conference, to be held July 9-12 in Utrecht, The Netherlands.

From the call:

This workshop aims to bring together researchers from various humanities disciplines, such as history, ethnography and archaeology, with the established guardians of collections, namely researchers in archival, library, museum studies and information science professionals and stakeholders to present and discuss approaches in tracing and documenting provenance, be it geographical or cultural and ideological.

Collections of cultural heritage data, such as art collections or digitized manuscripts, that focus on areas of interest, including using linked data for data integration, historical information modeling, and working with geographical information and historical location resolution, will be ideal for this workshop.

Long papers of up to 8 pages presenting on a completed project, and short papers/demos of up to 6 pages focusing on a work in progress, will be considered. The deadline for submissions is May 5.
