Keystone Digital Humanities

Please consider submitting a proposal to participate in the Keystone Digital Humanities Conference:

The Keystone Digital Humanities conference will be held in the Kislak Center for Special Collections, Rare Books and Manuscripts at the University of Pennsylvania Libraries, July 22-24, 2015.

Proposals are now invited for the following, in all areas of digital humanities:

  • Long presentations (20 minutes)
  • Short presentations (7 minutes)
  • Project showcases (10 minutes)

Presentations may take the form of interactive presentations, short papers, project demos, or panel discussions. We welcome proposals from emerging and veteran students, teachers, and scholars.

In addition, we are thrilled to announce that Dr. Miriam Posner, Coordinator and Core Faculty of the Digital Humanities Program at UCLA, will be presenting the keynote lecture, “What’s Next?: The Radical, Unrealized Potential of Digital Humanities.”

The community will be invited to vote on proposals that they would like to see included in the program. The 10 proposals with the highest scores are guaranteed a slot at the conference. The Program Committee will curate the remainder of the program in an effort to ensure diversity in program content and presenters. Community votes will, of course, still weigh heavily in these decisions.

Please send your name, email address, and a proposal of 200-300 words to keystonedh.conference@gmail.com. The proposal deadline is January 2, 2015, and community peer review will run from January 15-February 15. Proposers will be notified by March 1.
