Willard

In this past year more and more academic events have successfully migrated to
online venues across multiple time zones. And in many instances opened up to the
world (general public). As well, records of these encounters entered the
archival record.

Allow me to signal one more and invite folks to mark their calendars.

The 6th annual Global Digital Humanities Symposium[1] hosted by the College of
Arts & Letters at Michigan State University from April 12-15, 2021.

This years keynote speakers touch upon the theme of access and uncovering
history through digital humanities projects [2]. They are:

Chao Tayiana Maina
History is hiding – Digital humanities and the formulation of historical empathy
in archival practice

[quote from abstract]
This talk will explore the ways in which digital tools can shape the process of
historical inquiry and by so doing formulate pathways towards historical empathy
and critical analysis of colonial archives.
[/quote]

Gimena del Rio Riande
Equity in Digital Access and Digital Humanities in Latin America

[quote from abstract]
However, a weighted reflection on who holds the power in the scholarly
communications ecosystem and how it can reinforce cognitive capitalism (Moulier
Boutang, 2007 [3]) is still needed: Digital Humanities replicate these
inequities.
[/quote]


The Global Digital Humanities Symposium contributes to the ongoing dialogue
about the social and technical infrastructures required to build vibrant and
inclusive research communities.

After last year's great success, the "Bug or Feature" symposium is coming back
for a second iteration and we are happy to invite early career scholars from all
corners of DH to contribute! It's a two day event on July 8 and 9 (online of
course), dedicated to discussing methodology and experimentation in early career
research projects. If you want to submit an abstract for a presentation, the
deadline is May 16. Attendees without presentation are also more than welcome to
join! For more details please see the attached CfP.

All the very best
