Cfp: The Keystone Digital Humanities conference

FINAL CFP: Proposals due MONDAY, JANUARY 12

http://sceti.library.upenn.edu/Keystonedh/

The Keystone Digital Humanities conference will be held in the Kislak Center for Special Collections, Rare Books and Manuscripts at the University of Pennsylvania Libraries, July 22-24, 2015. Dr. Miriam Posner, Coordinator and Core Faculty of the Digital Humanities Program at UCLA, will be presenting the keynote lecture, “What's Next?: The Radical, Unrealized Potential of Digital Humanities.”
Proposals are now invited for long presentations (20 minutes), short presentations (7 minutes), and project showcases (10 minutes) in all areas of digital humanities.

Presentations may take the form of interactive presentations, short papers, project demos, panel discussions, or workshops. We welcome proposals from emerging and veteran students, teachers, and scholars.

The community will be invited to vote on proposals that they would like to see included in the program. The 10 proposals with the highest scores are guaranteed a slot at the conference. The Program Committee will curate the remainder of the program in an effort to ensure diversity in program content and presenters. Community votes will, of course, still weigh heavily in these decisions.

Please send your name, email address, and a proposal of 200-300 words to keystonedh.conference@gmail.com. The proposal deadline is January 12, 2015, and community peer review will run from January 15-February 15. Proposers will be notified by March 1.

The Association for Computers and the Humanities (http://ach.org/) is covering registration for ten graduate students to present at the conference.

One of the side effects of this accelerated development was that characteristics of different style periods could even co-occur. Gachev’s thought-provoking idea has never really received a l…
