Seminar: ASEEES Slavic DH Workshop

Event Date: December 1, 2021

The ASEEES Conference Slavic DH Workshop will be taking place on Zoom on December 1, 2021. This year, the workshop will focus on computational periodical studies, including the materials and questions posed by the interinstitutional DH project, “The Pages of Early Soviet Performance.”https://cdh.princeton.edu/…/pages-early-soviet…/ The “Pages of Early Soviet Performance (PESP)” uses machine learning to generate multiple datasets of early-Soviet illustrated periodicals related to the performing arts. By using computer vision techniques and training a YOLO (You Only Look Once) real-time object detection model, this project generates textual and image data that will facilitate new avenues of research about Soviet culture during the first decades after the October Revolution (1917-1932). All registered participants of ASEEES are welcome to join this hands-on, three-part workshop, focused on the digitization of Russian/Slavic periodicals. Each session is self-contained and can be attended “a la carte.” Participation in all sessions is not required. CALL FOR PANELISTS: Do you use periodical collections in your teaching? Are you a student who has used digital periodical collections in your research or in a classroom setting?

Funding: Stanton Nuclear Security Fellowship

Deadline: December 15, 2021

Nuclear security is one of the greatest challenges facing the world today. The spread of nuclear weapons to unstable and hostile states, the risk of conflict between nuclear-armed nations, and the potential for terrorist groups to acquire nuclear arms all demand new thinking and creative policy solutions. The Stanton Nuclear Security Fellowship, sponsored by the Stanton Foundation, offers younger scholars studying nuclear security issues the opportunity to spend a period of twelve months at CFR’s offices in New York or Washington, DC, conducting policy-relevant research. While in residence full time at CFR, selected fellows will be expected to lead a project of their own design, conduct original research, and write at least one policy-relevant document. The fellows will also be mentored by the fellows of CFR’s David Rockefeller Studies Program.
