Call for Proposals

Alternating between plenary and parallel sessions, this conference will consider how the global and local intersect in digital practice and humanities-based experimentation. We invite proposals on topics which may include, but are not limited to:

Critical approaches to scale (distant reading, macroanalysis, and so on)

Inter-institutional pedagogical strategies

Site-specific performance and art

Uses of social media to connect scholars and students across geographical contexts

Public history/crowdsourcing projects

Visualization methods for producing new perspectives on global-local connections

Incorporating digital practices and theory within liberal arts colleges and in undergraduate settings more broadly

We are especially interested in exploring potential presentation structures that challenge the traditional academic paper format within the 20 minute period of the talk. For example, presentations could be a conversation with a close collaborator, a discussion of the connection between your research and teaching/collaborations with undergraduate or graduate students, a performance or exhibition, etc.

Submissions for proposal presentations are now closed.
