Digital Humanities Conference 2021: Discomfort
"Registration is now open for DiHuCon 2021: Discomfort, the University of Alberta's Digital Humanities Students’ Association's (DHSA) annual conference!
Discomfort will be held from March 15th to 17th from 8:00 AM to 1:00 PM each day over gather.town.
This year's theme is about 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.
Our keynote speakers are Lindsay Nixon, Amanda Leduc, and Debbie Beaver, and we have a wonderful array of undergraduate and graduate students presenting their research from all areas of Digital Humanities studies including Gaming, Gender and Tech, and Pop Culture just to name a few!"
