CFP: Cornell University Grad Student Digital Humanities Symposium

Saturday, April 9, 2016 - 12:00am

Saturday, 9 April 2016, Cornell University

Graduate students are invited to submit proposals for Cornell’s inaugural Digital Humanities Symposium. The half-day event will consist of one session of (10-minute) lightning talks with a Q&A, a following session devoted to workshopping longer papers, and (paper/digital) poster presentations during the lunch break. Multiple workshop sessions will run concurrently and be organized by similar methodological approaches, topics, and/or formats (e.g. dissertation chapters). Papers should be circulated to other members of the group one week before the Symposium. We welcome proposals of 200-300 words on a range of topics that engage with digital approaches to scholarship and pedagogy, including, but not limited to:

Digital approaches that challenge traditional disciplinary boundaries
Reflections on using digital tools in the classroom or pedagogical digital projects
Digital humanities and/in the dissertation
Innovative uses of data, media, text, corpora, geospatial information, and visualization tools
Digital approaches to community-engaged learning and/or research
Presentations of digital projects and new tools

Submissions through the online form ( will be accepted until midnight, February 21. Authors will be notified of acceptance by the end of the month. Please email Mia Tootill ( with any questions. The Symposium will be directly followed by the 1 1/2-day CNY2016 THATCamp—an “unconference” open to students, staff, and faculty, consisting of workshops and tutorials relating to the intersections between the humanities and technology.
