The Digital Frontiers community is joining forces with the Digital Humanities Forum held annually at University of Kansas’s Institute for Digital Research in the Humanities (IDRH). These two dynamic communities unite to celebrate digital scholarship as a diverse and growing field of humanist inquiry.
The theme for the 2018 Digital Frontiers/IDRH Conference is Finding Community in Digital Humanities.
The Digital Frontiers Program Committee invites proposals for the 2018 conference (October 4-5). The planning committee practices intentional inclusion and encourages submissions from researchers, students, librarians archivists, genealogists, historians, information and technology professionals, and scientists. We welcome perspectives from all individuals and are interested in fostering a dialog of critical, self-reflexive DH invested in different vectors of identity and encourage research produced by or concerning vulnerable and marginalized communities, historically or contemporaneously. In keeping with our focus on communities, we encourage submissions on DH praxis grounded in and accountable to the needs and ethics of local communities.
Conference content may include:
- Fully Constituted Panels
- Individual Scholarly Papers or Presentations (Note: early stage research, project updates, and single-institution “case studies” should be submitted as posters)
- Hands-On Workshops
- Posters or Infographics
Proposals will be double-blind peer reviewed, with final decisions made by the Program Committee.
The Deadline is April 22, 2018.
