Dear colleagues,

The sixth Digital Humanities Utah Symposium (DHU6) will be held on 25-26
February 2022 at Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah, USA.

Proposals are currently being accepted in the following formats: standalone
papers, panels, roundtables, and hands-on workshops. Proposals are due on 30
November 2021. The full CFP is available at https://dhu6.humwp.byu.edu/cfp/.

The keynote at the conference will be delivered by Kenton Rambsy, Assistant
Professor of African American literature and digital humanities at the
University of Texas at Arlington. His topic is titled “Why Data-Rich African
American Stories Matter.”

DHU6 welcomes humanities scholars from across the Intermountain West and beyond.
We especially invite early career scholars, graduate students, newcomers to the
digital humanities, and members of traditionally underrepresented groups to join
us.

Best,
BC
