In Detroit and around the world, digital technologies provide new tools to create, transform, and understand communities. The digital is often associated with freedom of information and communication and the possibilities of new media, transcending divisions between public and private, academic and popular, local and global. As an interdisciplinary field, Digital Humanities embraces those possibilities to bring new communities and voices into conversation. But there are also concerns about issues of representation, access, and regulation of digital knowledge.
In exploring the idea of community, we encourage proposals from a wide variety of disciplines on topics suggested but not limited to: digital pedagogy, DH technologies (e.g. mapping, text-mining); DH project design/management; data and resources; DH partnerships and project collaborations. Successful proposals will demonstrate some connection to the theme of the conference. Submission of proposals should include a one-paragraph abstract, sent before the deadline of July 15, 2016.
