DHWI Ignite showcases new and emerging, innovative and engaging work of those at DHWI by providing the opportunity for 5-minute stand up talks.
CALL FOR TALKS (Due Wednesday December 12): Proposals are now being accepted for presentations at DHWI Ignite, to be held in January 2013 at the University of Maryland. Open to Institute attendees and digital humanists in the DC region, DHWI Ignite is a social networking event where presenters give 5-minute fun, thought-provoking, presentations on topics of their choice in the digital humanities.
We invite proposals of 150-200 words for these presentations. Successful proposals will focus on an idea, a project, a theory, an experience, a line of code, pretty much anything. We specifically encourage presentations focusing on cultural heritage, auto-ethnographic approaches to digital humanities research, and application development for use by cultural heritage institutions. Potential presenters should be new or emerging scholars including, but not limited to: graduate students, librarians, cultural heritage providers, alt-academics, academic professionals, early career scholars, humanities scholars who are new to the digital humanities; and those in technical programs.
