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 (msuglobaldh.org)
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 work
-- Global research dialogues and collaborations within the digital
humanities community
-- 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 economies
-- 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 presentations

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