CFP: DHSI: Digital Humanities Conference 2021
The Digital Humanities Students’ Association (DHSA) at the University of Alberta is now accepting proposals for DiHuCon, our annual conference. We would love to provide a space for you to present your work!
The theme of the conference is Discomfort: exploring the lure or repulsion of uncertainty, pain, and unease in technology, communication and the academy. Presenters will be able to showcase projects that impart the ways in which society avoids sitting in discomfort and uncertainty and ways that discomfort is used to further ideologies, impart understanding, and even, create art. We are also interested in the ways that discomfort can be analyzed in reference to feminism, intersectionality, queer theory, post-colonialism, critical race theory, and environmentalism.
We are accepting proposals for Lightning Talks (5-10 minutes), Paper Presentations (15-20 minutes), Workshops (~1 hour long) and our Poster/Multimedia session. As an interdisciplinary student group, we welcome and encourage submissions from all students! You are welcome to submit more than one presentation, but we reserve the right to request you present on only one topic if we cannot accommodate more within the schedule.
The conference will be hosted virtually March 15-17, 2021.
All submissions will be reviewed and selected by the DHSA Conference Planning Committee. Please note that your name, presentation title, and abstract will be used in the program the day of the conference, as well as posted on the DiHuCon website.
