Global Digital Humanities Symposium
March 26-27, 2020
Michigan State University

Call for Proposals
Deadline: November 1
Proposal form 

Digital Humanities at Michigan State University is proud to extend its symposium
series on Global DH into its fifth year, on March 26-27, 2020. 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. In celebration of the 10th anniversary of MSU's
Cultural Heritage Informatics Program, we particularly encourage proposals along 
that theme, but as always we strive to showcase DH work in all its forms.

Alongside the expansion of digital humanities 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. This symposium is 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.

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.

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 Friday, November 1, midnight in your timezone:

  *   Critical cultural studies and analytics
  *   Cultural heritage in a range of contexts, particularly non-Western
  *   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
  *   How identity categories, and their intersections, shape digital humanities
  *   Global research dialogues and collaborations within the digital humanities
  *   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
  *   Digital and global languages and literatures
  *   Digital humanities, the environment, and climate change
  *   Innovative and emergent technologies across institutions, languages, and
  *   Scholarly communication and knowledge production in a global context
  *   Surveillance and/or data privacy issues in a global context
  *   Productive failure

 Presentation Formats:

  *   5-minute lightning talk
  *   15-minute presentation
  *   90-minute workshop
  *   90-minute panel
  *   Poster presentation
  *   There will be a limited number of slots available for 15-minute virtual

Please note that we conduct a double-blind review process, so please refrain
from identifying your institution or identity in your proposal.
