Second Call for Applications for Membership of the EAJS Digital Forum Advisory Board
Deadline for applications: 30 November 2019
The EAJS invites its Full, Associate and Student members to express interest in joining the Digital Forum Advisory Board.
The Digital Humanities employ a large variety of methods and tools, including the digitization of textual, visual and audio material, digital cultural heritage, text encoding, natural language processing, geographical information systems, network analysis, the creation and analysis of mass data repositories (‘big data’ and data mining), conceptualization, enrichment, curation and exploitation of metadata or ontologies, data visualisation, human-machine interaction, virtual reality and many more that transform the ways academic research is carried out today.
The EAJS Digital Forum has been established in 2018 to offer the members of the Association opportunities to develop their skills, to develop research methods implementing digital tools, to integrate the DH into teaching, to reflect critically on methods, and to meet colleagues with similar interests and relevant expertise within the framework of workshops and conferences. Its membership should reflect and represent the multidisciplinarity of Jewish Studies as well as the diversity of methods and tools applied in the DH, as well as existing initiatives and academic bodies. Initially, the DF Advisory Board should comprise 24 members.
If you have relevant experience and expertise – in any field of Jewish Studies and the application of any methods and tools considered part of Digital Humanities – are a member in good standing and would like to support the activities of the EAJS Digital Forum, please apply to become a member of the Digital Forum Advisory Board by sending a short letter expressing your interest, including a brief description of your expertise (discipline; period and geographical area of research; type of DH methods applied, data type; experience in teaching DH), and a cv of up to 2 pages. Please send your application to the Administrator of the EAJS: email@example.com by 30 November 2019.
