CFP: Digitorium 2024

Digitorium, the annual Digital Humanities conference hosted by the Alabama Digital Humanities Center at University of Alabama Libraries, is now accepting proposals. They specifically “encourage submissions that ask big questions, present puzzles for problem-solving, and share outside of the box ideas.”

Presentation formats include:

Papers: 15 minute presentations (max 2000 words). Papers are an opportunity for solo presenters to submit a presentation on their project or idea and can describe theoretical or conceptual ideas or can focus on in progress or completed projects.  Sessions for papers will be scheduled in groups of three.

Panels: a presentation for collaborators or scholars who are working on related or similar projects. Panels are 45 minutes long and have a minimum of 2 co-presenters. This presentation format can be a collaborative presentation or a discussion-based presentation with a moderator.

Roundtables: facilitated conversation about a DH tool or concept. Presenters will pose a short discussion prompt and a short list of questions that participants can engage with.

Lightening Talks (students only):  solo presentation of a small project or an aspect of a project (<10 minutes, max 1000 words). Lightening talks are bite size presentations of materials and are not intended to go into great depth.

Poster Sessions (students only): a poster session is a visual representation of a research project. Posters will include title, research questions, methodology, data, findings, and a bibliography. Posters are a way to visually engage participants and are a great place to showcase data visualization and graphics. Posters will be uploaded into a conference gallery and presenters will show their posters at a designated time during the conference.

The conference will be held September 12-14. View the full call for additional information.
