CFP: Global Digital Humanities Symposium 2020

Digital Humanities at Michigan State University has released a call for proposals for the 5th Global Digital Humanities Symposium (or Global DH), to be held March 26-27, 2020 at Michigan State University. The 2020 symposium invites “work at the intersections of critical DH; race and ethnicity; feminism, intersectionality, and gender; and anti-colonial and postcolonial frameworks to participate.”

Potential topics include:

  • Critical cultural studies and analytics
  • Cultural heritage in a range of contexts, particularly non-Western
  • DH as socially engaged humanities and/or as a social movement
  • Open data, open access, and data preservation as resistance, especially in a postcolonial context
  • How identity categories, and their intersections, shape digital humanities work
  • Global research dialogues and collaborations within the digital humanities community
  • Indigeneity – anywhere in the world – and the digital
  • Digital humanities, postcolonialism, and neocolonialism
  • Global digital pedagogies
  • Borders, migration, and/or diaspora and their connection to the digital
  • Digital and global languages and literatures
  • Digital humanities, the environment, and climate change
  • Innovative and emergent technologies across institutions, languages, and economies
  • Scholarly communication and knowledge production in a global context
  • Surveillance and/or data privacy issues in a global context
  • Productive failure

Proposals are due Friday, November 1, by midnight in your timezone.
