The University of Kansas has released a call for abstracts for the Digital Humanities Forum 2019, presented by the Institute for Digital Research in the Humanities (IDRH), which will take place in Lawrence, KS from October 3rd-4th, 2019. The theme of the forum this year is “Bodies, Justice, Futures,” which seeks to inspire presentations on how just futures can be built for individual and collective bodies around the world. The CFP will be of particular interest to those interested in how the digital humanities can contribute to furthering social justice, both in our own communities and on a global scale.
From the call for proposals:
By evoking the human body, we ask presenters to foreground humanistic inquiries of digital culture and technology, to trace continuities between historical realities and present socio-political conditions, and/or take up issues related to marginalized and invisible lived experiences. […] Forum organizers welcome proposals that explore connections in and between these themes and that suggest new approaches to digital scholarship. We encourage proposals from scholars at any stage in their careers, including undergraduate, graduate, postdoctoral, and faculty scholars; from gallery, library, archives, and museum professionals; as well as from those engaged in scholarship outside the university.
Submissions are accepted until May 20th, 2019 at 11:59pm.
