CFP: Digital Frontiers: Tear Down the Walls

Digital Frontiers welcomes submissions for the 2019 conference, Tear Down The Walls, hosted by UT Austin in Austin, TX on September 26-28, 2019. Digital Frontiers is a conference and community that brings together the makers and users of digital resources for the humanities.

From the call:

Digital Humanities scholars deal with numerous barriers and borders as they interrogate the world around them through a digital lens. We invite participants to think critically about the composition of these walls, of their implicit and explicit functions, and the colonial practices by which many were and are still being created…

We aim to radically reconfigure modes of knowledge production as related to cultural, technological, and digital studies. These reconfigurations may include communications through and without barriers, playful appropriations that subvert privileged uses of technology, community-centered archives that highlight embodied cultural experiences and challenge authoritative modes of knowledge production, discussions of power related to the assumed binary of digital and material.

Participants at all stages of professional development in all disciplines are encouraged to submit their work. Proposals should be 300-500 words and can be for: preconstituted panels, individual scholarly papers or presentations, posters, and exhibitions, installations, performances, and alternative formats. CFP Deadline: April 14, 2019.
