Global Digital Humanities Symposium 2022 - Call for Proposals Open (closes Dec 1)
Wednesday, March 23, 2022 - 12:00am to Friday, March 25, 2022 - 11:55pm

The Global Digital Humanities Symposium Planning Committee is pleased to open the Call for Proposals for the 7th annual Symposium, scheduled for March 23-25, 2022. This virtual event will take place synchronously over three days, with approximately four hours each day of programming.

The Call for Proposals is now available in English, French, and Spanish (links below), and proposals and presentations are welcome in any of these three languages. During the Symposium, we will support live
interpretation of presentations in these languages. Live captions will also be provided for presentations given
in English. Further details about multilingualism at the Symposium are available in the CFP.

Deadline to apply: Wednesday, December 1, 2020, midnight in your timezone

This year we especially anticipate and welcome presentations on the following topics:

  • Digital humanities, the environment, and the climate crisis
  • Issues of healthcare and the digital humanities
  • Global DH during a global pandemic

We are always interested to hear about the following topics:

  • Indigeneity – anywhere in the world – and the digital
  • Surveillance, censorship, and/or data privacy in a global context
  • Productive failure; failure as a part of DH praxis
  • Cultural heritage in a range of contexts, particularly non-Western
  • Open data, open access, and data preservation as resistance
  • How identity categories and their intersections, shape digital humanities work
  • Global digital pedagogies and emerging technologies
  • Equity and inclusion in digital access
  • Digital humanities, postcolonialism, and anti-colonialism
  • Borders, migration, and/or diaspora and their connection to the digital
  • Multilingualism and the digital
  • Global research dialogues and collaborations
  • Scholarly communication and knowledge production in a global context
  • Virtual worlds and digital storytelling

Presentation formats:

  • 5-minute lightning talk (250-300 word proposal)
  • 15-minute presentation (250-300 word proposal)
  • 90-minute
    panel (100-word proposal describing the panel as a whole, plus 100-word
    description for each presentation within the panel)
  • 60-minute Workshop (250-300 word proposal)
  • Project showcase (250-300 word proposal)
    • There will be a session similar to a poster presentation fair, in
      which presenters will share their work with small groups or individuals.
      Rather than a set presentation length, this project showcase will
      enable one-on-one feedback and ask presenters to
      share about their work in a more conversational and extemporaneous way.

Free registration for the Symposium will open in late January 2022. Find out more, including information about past Symposia at
