"The Digital and Democracy" 2018 Digital Scholarship Colloquium proposal submission form
Join us for a rousing discussion of democracy and the digital at the fourth Digital Scholarship Colloquium hosted by Case Western Reserve University's campus libraries in Cleveland, Ohio. We are now accepting proposals for papers, posters, panels, and/or demonstrations from scholars, students, librarians/archivists, technologists, non-profit researchers, and community organizers that interrogate the ways that digital tools work to either uphold or upend democracy, and how research might be used to advocate for positive impact within communities experiencing disruption and inequality. The colloquium is an opportunity to connect people to the scholarly work and digital tools that directly or indirectly affect their lives and civil liberties.

The conference will be held Thursday, November 1, 2018 - Friday, November 2, 2018.

Proposals should clearly connect to the theme of democracy and digital scholarship and identify action-oriented takeaways or opportunities for collaboration in and out of academia. Proposals where academics or nonprofit researchers are analyzing community-based projects should include members of that community on the panel. Proposals should evince a range of perspectives and identities among presenters. Accepted proposals should follow guidelines on creating accessible presentations.
