        Subject: Global Digital Humanities Symposium 2022 - Keynotes Announced & CFP Reminder (closes Dec 1)

Dear colleagues,

The Global Digital Humanities Symposium Planning Committee is pleased to
announce the Keynote Presenters for the 7th annual Symposium, scheduled for
March 23-25, 2022. We are looking forward to their individual presentations as
well as a discussion at the end of the Symposium among the three Keynote
Presenters, bringing their work into conversation with each other.

Keynote Presenters:

  *   June Rubis, Sydney Environment Institute, University of Sydney
  *   Olivia Quintanilla, University of California, Santa Barbara
  *   Hanna Musiol, Norwegian University of Science and Technology

This virtual event will take place synchronously over three days, with
approximately four hours each day of programming.

The Call for Proposals is still open and is available in English, French, and
Spanish (links below), and proposals and presentations are welcome in any of
these three languages. During the Symposium, we will support live interpretation
of presentations in these languages. Live captions will also be provided for
presentations given in English. Further details about multilingualism at the
Symposium are available in the CFP.

Deadline to apply: Wednesday, December 1, 2021, midnight in your timezone

  *   Full CFP - English -
  *   Full CFP - Espagnol -
  *   Full CFP - Français -

This year we especially anticipate and welcome presentations on the following

  *   Digital humanities, the environment, and the climate crisis
  *   Issues of healthcare and the digital humanities
  *   Global DH during a global pandemic

We are always interested to hear about the following topics:

  *   Indigeneity – anywhere in the world – and the digital
  *   Surveillance, censorship, and/or data privacy in a global context
  *   Productive failure; failure as a part of DH praxis
  *   Cultural heritage in a range of contexts, particularly non-Western
  *   Open data, open access, and data preservation as resistance
  *   How identity categories and their intersections, shape digital humanities
  *   Global digital pedagogies and emerging technologies
  *   Equity and inclusion in digital access
  *   Digital humanities, postcolonialism, and anti-colonialism
  *   Borders, migration, and/or diaspora and their connection to the digital
  *   Multilingualism and the digital
  *   Global research dialogues and collaborations
  *   Scholarly communication and knowledge production in a global context
  *   Virtual worlds and digital storytelling

Presentation formats:

  *   5-minute lightning talk (250-300 word proposal)
  *   15-minute presentation (250-300 word proposal)
  *   90-minute panel (100-word proposal describing the panel as a whole, plus
100-word description for each presentation within the panel)
  *   60-minute Workshop (250-300 word proposal)
  *   Project showcase (250-300 word proposal)
     *   There will be a session similar to a poster presentation fair, in which
presenters will share their work with small groups or individuals. Rather than a
set presentation length, this project showcase will enable one-on-one feedback
and ask presenters to share about their work in a more conversational and
extemporaneous way.

Free registration for the Symposium will open in late January 2022. Find out
