Thanks Wayne and kudos to UVa on the inclusivity statement.

I would be interested to know who attends; that call* looks like a pretty fine 
filter.  If the list is ever made public I will immediately follow them all on

Subject: [CODE4LIB] "Speaking in Code" summit, UVa Library Scholars' Lab

(Please excuse cross-posting, and help us get the word out about this 
opportunity for digital humanities software developers!)

We're pleased to announce that applications are open for "Speaking in Code," a 
2-day, NEH-funded symposium and summit to be held at the UVa Library Scholars' 
Lab in Charlottesville, Virginia this November 4th and 5th.

"Speaking in Code" will bring together a small cohort of intermediate to 
advanced digital humanities software developers for two days of conversation 
and agenda-setting. Our goal will be to give voice to what is almost always 
tacitly expressed in DH development work: expert knowledge about the 
intellectual and interpretive dimensions of code-craft, and unspoken 
understandings about the relation of our labor and its products to ethics, 
scholarly method, and humanities theory.

Over the course of two days, participants will:

* reflect on and express, from developers' own points of view, what is 
particular to the humanities and of scholarly significance in DH software 
development products and practices;

* and collaboratively devise an action-oriented agenda to bridge the gaps in 
critical vocabulary and discourse norms that can frequently distance creators 
of humanities platforms or tools from the scholars who use and critique them.

In addition to Scholars' Lab staff (Jeremy Boggs, Wayne Graham, Eric Rochester, 
and Bethany Nowviskie), facilitators include Stephen Ramsay, William J. Turkel, 
Stéfan Sinclair, Hugh Cayless, and Tim Sherratt. A limited number of need-based 
travel bursaries are available to participants. The SLab particularly 
encourages and will prioritize participation of developers who are women, 
people of color, LGBTQ, or from other under-represented groups. See "You Are 
Welcome Here" for more info:

This will be the first focused meeting to address the implications of tacit 
knowledge exchange in digital humanities software development. Visit the 
Speaking in Code website to register your interest! Apply by September 12th for 
best consideration.
