CFP – Graduate Students Speak Out: Gaining Knowledge in Digital Humanities

Published / by Kimberley Martin

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 (kimberleymartin@gmail.com) no later than April 1st.
