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 (http://chi.anthropology.msu.edu/)>, 
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 (http://endangereddataweek.org/), 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.

Notifications of acceptance will be given by December 9, 2019

        From: Willard McCarty 
        Subject: CFP: Open/Technology in Education, Society, and Scholarship Association Inaugural Conference - November 28, 2019

Open/Technology, Education, Society, and Scholarship Association (OTESSA):
"Intersections: Connecting Open/Technology, Education, Society, and
May 31-June 1, 2020
London, Ontario


OTESSA meets during the annual conference of the Federation of the
Humanities and Social Sciences, also known as Congress. Congress is the
convergence of over 70 scholarly associations, and is Canada’s largest
gathering of researchers, scholars, graduate students, practitioners,
and stakeholders with approximately 8,000 attendees.

OTESSA welcomes all who are exploring the role of open and digital
technologies in education, society, and scholarship to be part of our
first-ever conference gathering. Scholars, practitioners, graduate and
undergraduate students, librarians, designers, educators from K12 or
post-secondary, administrators, policy-makers: whatever your role and
wherever you are located in the world, join us and contribute to our
emergent discussions as a newly formed Association!

Contemporary social, political, economic and information ecosystems are
shaping our citizenry and our classrooms dramatically. Where do we see
ourselves going? What are our concerns and guiding visions? Who is
served by the infrastructures we design? With this first conference and
through our theme, OTESSA aims to encourage the intersection of
perspectives as well as build connections, collaborations, and critical
conversations. We particularly want to invite focus on the complexities
that technology and open practice raise for education, society, and
scholarship, so this year’s three key subthemes for submissions and
discussions will be /Ethics/, /Access/, and /Futures/. All contributions
should be directed towards at least one of these core issues.

There will be multiple modes of presentation and participation available
at OTESSA. Formats include 20-minute and 50-minute presentations,
5-minute lightning talks, 50-minute submitted panels focused around a
convening question, and 15-minute small-group roundtable discussions.

During the conference, there will also be a plenary OpenTable session
that does not require submission in advance, but will enable
participants to host focused discussions on core issues for their
practice and for the field.

Our primary focus in this first year is building community. However, we
recognize that travel can create obstacles. A limited number of
lightning talk sessions and panel spots will be reserved for those who
cannot join us in person.

All authors will be given the option during the presentation submission
process to request their proposal be considered for inclusion in a
formal proceedings collection. Presenters will also be given an
opportunity to contribute to a pre-conference blog series showcase.
Opportunities for authors to submit full-length papers for consideration
for a special issue are also being explored. Both of these proceedings
and blog showcase contributions are optional.

Submissions are due *November 28, 2019* by 11:59pm, Pacific Time. Click

Thank you for the work you all do to advance our scholarship and
practice. We are excited to gather with you to recognize your
contributions to the field: please join us in London, Ontario, Canada.

Fondly, from the OTESSA community, as we open and grow!
