CFP: Graduate Students Speak Out: Gaining Knowledge in Digital Humanities

The Canadian Society of Digital Humanities / Société canadienne des humanités numériques has put out a call for papers for a panel at the annual CSDH/SCHN conference at the Congress of the Humanities and Social Sciences. The organizers are looking for short papers from current graduate students “that discuss or reflect on the opportunities they have had for education in the digital humanities, broadly conceived.” Possible topics include:

  • What problems confront DH education in academia? What solutions can you offer?
  • What are the advantages and disadvantages of the current options for DH education (project training, workshops, hackathons, unconferences, conferences, and degree programs or certificates)?
  • Should DH skills be introduced prior to graduate school?
  • Have you been a part of a project that expanded your DH skillset?
  • What are other opportunities for developing digital skills?

Abstracts are due April 1, 2017.
