CFP: Association for Computers and the Humanities 2019

The Association for Computers and the Humanities (ACH) has released a call for submissions for the 2019 ACH meeting, to take place July 23-26, 2019, in Pittsburgh, PA.

From the call:

ACH is the United States-based constituent organization in the Alliance for Digital Humanities Organizations (ADHO). The ACH 2019 conference, in partnership with Keystone DH, provides a forum for conversations on an expansive definition of digital humanities in a broad array of subject areas, methods, and communities of practice.

ACH recognizes that this work is inherently and inextricably sociopolitical, and thus additionally, but not exclusively, welcomes scholarship that emphasizes social justice through the use of computers and related technologies in the study of humanistic subjects.

Areas of engagement include but are not limited to:

  • Computational and digital approaches to research and pedagogy;
  • Digital media, art, literature, history, music, film, and games;
  • Digital librarianship;
  • Digital humanities tools and infrastructures;
  • Humanistic research on digital objects and cultures;
  • Knowledge infrastructures;
  • Physical computing;
  • Resource creation, curation, and engagement;
  • Use of digital technologies to write, publish, and review scholarship.

We particularly invite proposals on anti-racist, queer, postcolonial and decolonial, indigenous, Black studies, cultural and critical ethnic studies, and intersectional feminist interventions in digital studies.

Proposals may be in the form of traditional 20-minute presentations, workshops, lightning round talks, panels, roundtables, and installations and performances.

Submissions are due by  November 10, 2018. Presenters will be notified of acceptance by February 18, 2019.
