Call for Proposals

Deadline: November 15

Proposal form

Digital Humanities at Michigan State University is proud to extend 
its symposium series on Global DH into its fourth year. Digital 
humanities scholarship continues to be driven by work at the 
intersections of a range of distinct disciplines and an ethical 
commitment to preserve and broaden access to cultural materials.

Focused on these issues of social justice, we invite work at the 
intersections of critical DH; race and ethnicity; feminism, 
intersectionality, and gender; and anti-colonial and postcolonial 
frameworks to participate.

Given the growth of these fields within the digital humanities, 
particularly in under-resourced and underrepresented areas, 
a number of complex issues surface, including, among others, 
questions of ownership, cultural theft, virtual exploitation, 
digital rights, endangered data , 
and the digital divide. DH communities have raised and responded 
to these issues, pushing the field forward. We view the 2019 
symposium as an opportunity to broaden the conversation about these 
issues. Scholarship that works across borders with foci on 
transnational partnerships and globally accessible data is especially 
welcome. Additionally, we define the term "humanities" rather broadly 
to incorporate the discussion of issues that encourage interdisciplinary 
understanding of the humanities.

This symposium, which will include a mixture of presentation 
types, welcomes 300-word proposals related to any of these issues, 
and particularly on the following themes and topics by Thursday, 
November 15, 11:59pm EST:

  *   Critical cultural studies and analytics
  *   Cultural heritage in a range of contexts
  *   DH as socially engaged humanities and/or as a social movement
  *   Open data, open access, and data preservation as resistance, 
      especially in a postcolonial context
  *   DH responses to crisis
  *   How identity categories, and their intersections, shape digital 
      humanities work
  *   Global research dialogues and collaborations
  *   Indigeneity – anywhere in the world – and the digital
  *   Digital humanities, postcolonialism, and neocolonialism
  *   Global digital pedagogies
  *   Borders, migration, and/or diaspora and their connection 
      to the digital

  *   Innovative and emergent technologies across institutions,
