Digital Frontiers has posted a call for proposals for the 2018 Digital Frontiers/University of Kansas’s Institute for Digital Research in the Humanities (IDRH) Digital Humanities Forum, to be held October 4-5 at the University of Kansas. The theme for the conference is “Finding Community in Digital Humanities”:
When the diversity of disciplines, technologies, and communities involved in DH converge, we are often confronted with novel and/or previously uninvestigated approaches to the field. How do these aspects overlap? Where do they diverge? Each community brings its own voice and perspective, often urging us to interrogate the assumptions hidden within our own work. This conference’s theme asks participants to examine these intersections and bring us into dialogue with one another. Aside from disciplinary and research communities in the Digital Humanities, we also frame communities as those of lived experiences: international communities, marginalized communities and communities of resistance, classroom communities, digital communities, and others.
The deadline for proposals is April 6, 2018.
