CFP: HASTAC 2016 Interactive Discussion Panel - DH & Classics / Medieval / Early Modern

CFP: HASTAC 2016 Interactive Discussion Panel - DH & Classics / Medieval / Early Modern
Thursday, October 29, 2015 - 7:59pm

I am looking to assemble a panel of several scholars working in the digital humanities who are also working in earlier period humanities fields -- Classics, Medieval Studies, and Renaissance / Early Modern Studies. Scholars can come from any department -- history, literature, art history, religion, music, theatre, etc. -- and can be at any point in their career.

An interactive discussion panel will include short presentations (5 minutes) by panelists along with guided discussion to encourage an open forum of collaborative exchange. To get a sense of this format, have a look at this wrap-up from the HASTAC2015 conference. 

Possible topics for short presentations can include:

  • a discussion of a digital tool you have used
  • issues you have faced in trying to incorporate dh methodologies
  • how you are using dh in a project
  • how you use dh in the classroom
  • a summary of work you have completed or a work in progress
  • difficulties you may have encountered with using dh in your field
  • how you have used social media or blogging as part of your workflow

To be considered for this panel, please write me with a brief introduction (who you are), what you would like to discuss, and to confirm that you will be able to attend HASTAC2016

HASTAC2016 will take place May 11-15, 2016 at Arizona State University in Tempe, AZ.

Send all questions and submissions by Oct. 29, 2015 to LTagliaferri@gradcenter.cuny.edu.
