Call for Proposals: Digital Frontiers 2018 Conference (Deadline April 6)

(via Coby Condrey, University of North Texas)

At the intersection of a range of disciplines, technologies, and communities, Digital Frontiers is an annual conference that seeks to explore, celebrate, question, and disrupt traditions in scholarship in order to advance an inclusive dialog that spans boundaries and highlights unlikely connections in the field of Digital Humanities.

The theme for the 2018 conference is Finding Community in Digital Humanities.�The Digital Frontiers Program Committee invites proposals for the 2018 conference (October 4-5, at the University of Kansas). The planning committee practices intentional inclusion and encourages submissions from researchers, students, librarians archivists, genealogists, historians, information and technology professionals, and scientists.

Conference content may include:

  • Fully Constituted Panels
  • Individual Scholarly Papers or Presentations (note: early stage research, project updates, and single-institution “case studies” should be submitted as posters)
  • Hands-On Workshops
  • Posters or Infographics

Please see the official Call for Proposals for full details of desirable program topics and areas for exploration. Submit your proposal here by Friday, April 6.
