African American Digital Humanities Extends Conference Deadline to April 15 #AADHum

Good news- after numerous inquiries about extending the deadline for our Fall 2018 Conference: Intentionally Digital, Intentionally Black, we have agreed to do so! You now have until Sunday, April 15th at 11:59pm to submit your abstract for a paper, roundtable, panel, poster, or digital tools demonstration.

Based on current submissions, this is shaping up to be a robust, intellectually-engaging conference! More information about this conference and our keynote speakers can be found on our website:[]. Questions or comments can be sent to this address (

The first national conference of the African American Digital Humanities (AADHum) Initiative at the University of Maryland will explore how digital studies and digital humanities-based research, teaching, and community projects can center African American history and culture. AADHum invites submissions that may include scholarly inquiry into Black diasporic and African American uses of digital technologies; digital humanities projects that focus on black history and culture; race and digital theory; the intersection of black studies and digital humanities; information studies, cultural heritage, and community-based digital projects; pedagogical interventions; digital tools and artifacts; black digital humanities and memory; social media and black activism/movements, etc.

THANK YOU for everyone who has already submitted so far- we look forward to reviewing your submissions!

All the Best,
The AADHum Team
