CFP: Institute for Liberal Arts Digital Scholarship (ILiADS) 2024

The ILiADS Steering Committee welcomes proposals for the seventh annual Institute for Liberal Arts Digital Scholarship which will be hosted in person, July 14-19, 2024, by Pitts Theology Library at Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia.

Collaborative digital project teams are invited to submit proposals to participate in the week-long summer institute. From the call:

ILiADS offers a week-long intensive environment for collaborative project teams composed of some mix of researchers, librarians, technologists, and students to build upon established digital pedagogy or scholarship projects and/or launch new ones. To help get a new project started and/or clear hurdles, each team is assigned a Liaison expert to consult on the project and help connect them to other experts.

The steering committee encourages proposals from teams in whole or in part new to digital scholarship. We employ an expansive definition of “digital project” that can include topics like infrastructure development and pedagogical practice. Projects of all types, and in any stage, are welcomed.

Examples of successful project proposals are linked from the full CFP posted on the ILiADS website, where you can also find Frequently Asked Questions about participating in ILiADS. Submissions should be made before Friday, March 15, 2024.

ILiADS relies on a team of experts in a variety of digital project skills and technologies to serve as liaisons to project teams. A Call for Liaisons has also been shared:

We are seeking liaisons with any combination of expertise in: digital scholarship tools and methodologies; programming, multimedia, and design experience; or audio/video production skills, including 3-D/XR.

To express interest in being a liaison for ILiADS 2024, fill out this form by March 29, 2024.
