The annual multidisciplinary digital humanities conference held at the University of Alabama Libraries, Digitorium, invites proposals for the 2021 conference to take place October 7-9, 2021. From the call for papers:
We seek proposals from a range of people including those who are brand new in the field of digital humanities, experienced scholars, practitioners, students, and anybody in-between to create an inclusive environment where everybody can learn something from each other. Proposals should demonstrate how we as digital humanists can engage with communities and our scholarship in new and innovative ways using digital methods.
This year, our theme is “Diversity in Digital Humanities.” How can we use DH to reach diverse audiences? How is DH taught and by whom to whom? How is DH helping to be more inclusive and diverse, and how can we do better? What stories can be told using DH? We welcome creativity in your proposals! If you have any questions about whether your proposal might fit, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Participants can submit proposals that engage with one of the following:
- Digital Methods: presentations that use digital methods to further scholarship in established fields or highlight new and exciting areas in their research subjects.
- Public Scholarship: presentations on utilizing digital methods to engage the public through institutions such as universities, libraries, and museums.
- Digital Pedagogy: presentations on using digital methods for innovative approaches to teaching at any level.
Presentations include a variety of formats for the conference, but they are not limited to those listed below. For example, presentations could be:
- 20 minute papers
- Workshops where the presenter teaches a digital method or tool (let us know what the specifications are for the workshop)
- Completed or in-progress project demonstrations
- Panel discussions
Submissions will be accepted until April 16, 2021.
