Call for Projects

Demystifying Digital Humanities, with support from the Simpson Center for the Humanities, UW-IT Learning Technologies, and UW Libraries will host its third annual digital scholarship* showcase. Our goal is to feature work from a broad community of scholar-practitioners engaged in digital scholarship in research and teaching.  We welcome contributions from scholars, educators, technologists, librarians, administrators, and students who use digital tools and methods, and encourage submissions from emerging and established scholar-practitioners alike, including those who are new to digital scholarship. The showcase will take place on Thursday, June 4th 2015 in Odegaard ALC-136 and will be followed by a reception in Odegaard Library, room 220.

Submission topics may include but are not limited to: engaging with space and place; creating innovative teaching and learning environments; curating and archiving in digital platforms; designing and building new research methodologies and tools;  perspectives on implications for the individual’s own research and pedagogy within the institutional landscape, etc. Presentations may take the form of project demos, electronic posters, or a digital artifact. The deadline for proposals is May 22nd, 2015.

If you have questions or would like more information about the submission process, please email showcase coordinator Brian R. Gutierrez: Brianrg at uw dot edu
