Call for Papers, CSDH/SCHN Conference 2017

Call for Papers, CSDH/SCHN Conference 2017
Toronto (Canada), May 29-31, 2017

The Canadian Society for Digital Humanities (http://csdh-schn.org/) invites scholars, practitioners, and graduate students to submit proposals for papers and digital demonstrations for its annual meeting, which will be held at the 2017 Congress of the Social Sciences and Humanities, Ryerson University, from May 29th to 31st (http://congress2017.ca/). The theme of this year’s Congress is “From Far and Wide: Canada’s Next 150”, and is aimed at encouraging diversity, an awareness of our past, and a critical look at where we are headed. The Program Committee encourages submissions on all topics relating to both theory and practice in the evolving field of the digital humanities.
Proposals for papers (20 minutes), digital demonstrations, and panels (2-6 speakers for a 90-minute session) will be accepted until 4 January 2017 and must be submitted via https://www.conftool.net/csdh-schn-2017/.
Paper abstracts should be 500 words, and should specify your thesis, methodology, and conclusions. We also welcome proposals for digital demonstrations of innovative projects or tools. Demonstrations will be given table space and a backdrop so they can set up a poster and a computer for a 2-hour session. We encourage projects with software to show to apply for this venue.

CSDH/SCHN welcomes proposals for joint panels with The Canadian Game Studies Association (CGSA), and we encourage presenters to note if they are open to a joint panel. Submit your panel proposal or individual paper proposal to either association. You and your panelists need to be members of either association, but not necessarily both.
Proposals are welcome for a panel on (Pre)Digital Models for Networks and Communities. This session will be sponsored by CSDH/SCHN and the Canadian Society for Renaissance Studies (CSRS/SCER). Proposals should be submitted through the CSDH/SCHN conference tool but should conform to the proposal guidelines as outlined by CSRS/SCEER: http://csrs-scer.ca/documents/CFP%20Congress%202017.pdf. Presenters need to be members of either association, but not necessarily both.
There is a limited amount of funding available to support graduate student travel. Interested graduate students should make sure to answer the relevant question on the submission page in ConfTool, and will receive a follow up survey upon acceptance of their paper/poster. Please note that all presenters must be members of CSDH/SCHN at the time of the conference.
Scholars in the digital humanities are engaged in diverse digital and computer-assisted research, teaching, and creation. CSDH/SCHN welcomes proposals from all constituencies and disciplines, and encourages applications from women, Aboriginal and Métis people, people of color, LGBTQ, or other underrepresented groups.
Selected papers from the conference will appear in special collections published in the CSDH/SCHN society journal, Digital Studies/Le champ numérique (http://www.digitalstudies.org).
We look forward to receiving your proposal!
2017 Program Committee: Jason Boyd (program co-chair and local area coordinator), Kim Martin (program co-chair), Jon Bath, Susan Brown, Lai-Tze Fan, Dominic Forest, and Ève Paquette-Bigras.

Some of these comics might be sensitive to their viewers. I would advise viewer’s discretion.

‘Rethinking Revolutions’ - London School of Economics - 26th May 2017

Over the past twenty years, the study of revolution has lost the centrality it once enjoyed. Yet the study of revolutions has never been so important: in thinking through the aftermath of the Arab uprisings, exploring the ideology of ISIS and other Islamist groups, understanding self-proclaimed revolutionary movements in the West, and interpreting the experience of states that continue to see themselves as revolutionary, such as China, Iran, and Cuba.
