Join us on the campus of Michigan State University to celebrate and explore the range of Digital Humanities Scholarship, Research, and Performance! We welcome sessions that address, exemplify, and interrogate the interdisciplinary nature of DH work. HASTAC 2015 challenges participants to consider how the interplay of science, technology, social sciences, humanities, and arts are producing new forms of knowledge, disrupting older forms, challenging or reifying power relationships, among other possibilities. Themes addressed by the conference include:
- the changing nature of humanities research and scholarship
- indigenous culture, decolonial and post-colonial theory and technology
- technology and education–open learning, peer learning, and issues of access, equity for primary and/or higher education
