CFP: Bucknell University Digital Scholarship Conference (#BUDSC17)

Bucknell University, with support from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, will host its fourth annual digital scholarship conference (#BUDSC17) from October 6-8, 2017. The theme of the conference is “Looking Forward, Looking Back: The Evolution of Digital Scholarship.”

#BUDSC17 is committed to expanding the definition of digital scholarship to be more inclusive across diverse communities, both inside and outside of academia. The conference will bring together a broad community of practitioners–faculty, researchers, librarians, artists, educational technologists, students, administrators, and others–engaged in digital scholarship both in research and teaching who share an interest in the evolution of digital scholarship.

The theme “Looking Forward, Looking Back: The Evolution of Digital Scholarship” acknowledges the changes to scholarship wrought by the introduction of digital technologies across the disciplines.  Now is an apt time to reflect upon how digital scholarship has evolved over the past decades and where it may head in the future. Scholars and teachers, poets and administrators, artists and community members, are encouraged to reflect on the past of digital scholarship and work together to build a future for digital scholarship.

Presentations proposals can be: interactive presentations, project demos, electronic posters, panel discussions, work-in-progress sessions, workshops, or lightning talks.

Proposals are due May 15, 2017 at 8 am through this Submission Form; notifications will be sent by June 26, 2017.
