In 2017, we invite you to join us at the University of Central Florida to explore “The Possible Worlds of Digital Humanities.” Orlando is known to tourists worldwide for theme parks that bring to life many imagined worlds and narratives, most of which reflect back to us dominant discourses and ideologies. Likewise, digital humanities struggles with building towards a future that is more inclusive and interdisciplinary. This year, we hope to address the unsolved hard problems and explore the new opportunities of the digital humanities. We particularly welcome submissions addressing themes such as:
- challenges of monolingualism within the digital humanities
- indigenous culture, decolonial and post-colonial theory and technology
- technology and education–open learning, peer learning, and issues of access, equity for primary and/or higher education
- communication of knowledge, publishing, and intellectual property
- digital cultural heritage and hegemony
- interdisciplinary goals and conversations in digital humanities
- digital humanities and gender, race, and other identities
- simulation, modeling, and visualization
- games and gaming, including for learning
- community development including the importance of art and culture districts
- other unsolved hard problems in digital humanities
The Call for Proposals is open!
Submit your proposal by April 7, 2017.
