The eighth annual Global Digital Humanities Symposium hosted by Michigan State University will be held in March 2023, with both in-person and virtual events; proposals are currently being accepted. From the call:
Digital humanities scholarship continues to be driven by work at the intersections of a range of distinct disciplines and an ethical commitment to preserve and broaden access to cultural materials. DH has been a key site for interrogating narratives about disruption, connection, identity, resistance, bias, and accountability. As our world continues to be shaped by a global pandemic and climate crisis, these narratives and conversations are as urgent as ever.
Focused on these issues, we invite work at the intersections of critical DH, that engages with anti-colonial and post-colonial frameworks, feminist and anti-racist praxis, and that crosses political and disciplinary borders. Lastly, we define the term “humanities” rather broadly to incorporate the discussion of issues that encourage interdisciplinary understanding of the humanities. […]
This year we especially anticipate and welcome presentations on the following topics:
- Digital rights, advocacy, and activism
- Digital storytelling
- Anti-colonial digital humanities
- Digital humanities, the environment, and sustainability
Submissions will be accepted until 1 December 2022.
