The CSDH/SCHN conference program committee is looking for ten-minute papers from graduate students that discuss or reflect on the opportunities they have had for education in the digital humanities, broadly conceived.
Four papers will be selected to be part of a graduate student panel at Ryerson University during the CSDH/SCHN conference that takes place May 29-31, 2017. Accepted panelists will be awarded funding for travel and accommodation for this trip.
Potential topics include:
- What problems confront DH education in academia? What solutions can you offer?
- What are the advantages and disadvantages of the current options for DH education (project training, workshops, hackathons, unconferences, conferences, and degree programs or certificates)?
- Should DH skills be introduced prior to graduate school?
- Have you been a part of a project that expanded your DH skillset?
- What are other opportunities for developing digital skills?
Please send a 500-word abstract and a short biography of the author(s) to Kim Martin (email@example.com) no later than April 1st.
The Canadian Society for Digital Humanities/Société canadienne des humanités numériques, invite all graduate students that have had papers accepted to the 2017 conference in Toronto to apply for travel funding. Please note, this year, we will also accept applications for financial support from speakers who are in contingent or other precarious positions with no other funding options.
Please fill out the form at this link by March 17th. The CSDH/SCHN executive committee will get back to you as soon as possible with information about support. If you have any questions regarding this funding or your whether or not you are able to apply, please contact Kim Martin at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Recently, There have been announcements by several digital humanities societies of their own statements or policies regarding diversity and inclusivity amongst members. As representatives of the Canadian Society of Digital Humanities/Société canadienne des humanités numériques the executive board has decided to ask for the help of the larger DH community in initiating thoughts on what diversity and inclusivity mean within the context of digital humanities.
In the first stage of this process, we are taking to Twitter to ask digital humanists to let us know their thoughts on this topic, and asking them to include the hashtag #DiverseDH in order for us to keep track of their contributions. The second stage will see a subcommittee of the exec analyse and rework these thoughts into a comprehensive statement, which will then be made publicly available for comment in a Google Doc. The third stage will see these comments taken into consideration, and the subcommittee will once again rework the statement to submit for approval at the CSDH/SCHN AGM in Calgary this June.
We thank each of you who participates in the process. There are links to several recent statements below, to help generate ideas for your own 140 characters!

Here’s to making DH a comfortable, generous, and safe space for all involved,
