CFP: Keystone DH 2024 Conference

UPDATE: The deadline has been extended to Friday, March 8.

Keystone DH — a network of institutions and practitioners committed to advancing collaborative scholarship in digital humanities research and pedagogy across the Mid-Atlantic — has announced that the annual Keystone DH conference will be hosted in-person by the DIGIT program at Penn State Erie, The Behrend College on May 20-22, 2024.

Conference organizers have shared a call for proposals for individual ~15-minute presentations or full 90-minute “roundtable” sessions. From the call:

The conference theme is play: the fun of exploring, gaming, and trying new things without being sure you understand them. This theme celebrates immersive experience and experimentation in digital humanities, especially marked in the adventurous work of our keynote presenters!

As with previous Keystone DH conferences, we welcome a range of proposals, including:

  • Presentations to share digital and public humanities projects;
  • Presentations on digital humanities pedagogy
  • Work on exploring, critiquing, applying, developing generative AI;
  • Methods / progress in developing digital scholarly editions and archives;
  • Curation efforts with digital ephemera;
  • Games, game-making, game-playing in humanities work;
  • Roundtable discussions on new directions and potential energies in humanities work digitally practiced;
  • “Workshopping” to share/get advice on projects in progress, which could take the form of:
    • short immersive installations of 3D projects,
    • interface design and development in progress,
    • investigations of a method (e.g. data sonification, analyzing/curating/classifying visual arts, natural language processing, network analysis, mapping time and space),
    • something we haven’t thought of here!

Students, early-career and non-traditional scholars, faculty researchers, digital scholarship librarians, designers, developers, explorers experimenting with “digital humanities” are all welcome to apply.

Read the full CFP here and submit proposals before Monday, March 1, 2024.
