Submissions for Digitorium 2019 are now open.
We’re very excited to invite proposals for Digitorium 2019, a multi-disciplinary Digital Humanities conference held at the University of Alabama from October 10-12, 2019. We seek proposals from a range of people including those who are brand new in the field of Digital Humanities, experienced scholars, and anybody in-between to create an inclusive environment where everybody can learn something from each other. Proposals should demonstrate how we as digital humanists can engage with communities and our scholarship in new and innovative ways.
Our theme this year is “Connecting the Physical and the Digital,” which includes, but is not limited to, connecting a physical place to an online map or a digital recreation, the digitization of documents or objects, and connecting real world museums to online exhibitions. We welcome creativity in your proposals!
Participants can submit proposals that engage with one of the following:
- Digital Methods: presentations that use digital methods to further scholarship in established fields or highlight new and exciting areas in their subjects.
- Public Scholarship: presentations on utilizing digital methods to engage the public through institutions such as universities, libraries, museums.
- Digital Pedagogy: presentations on using digital methods for innovative approaches to teaching.
Presentations include a variety of formats for the conference, but they are not limited to those listed below. For example, presentations could be:
- 20 minute papers
- 5 minute lightning talks
- Workshops where the presenter teaches a digital method
- Project Demonstrations
- Panel discussions
Deadline for submitting abstracts is May 3, 2019.
All proposals should be made via the Submissions page on the conference website.
