Please consider submitting proposals for the Our (Digital) Humanity: Storytelling, Media Organizing and Social Justice
Conference, April 20-22, 2018.
Deadline for submitting proposals is November 15, 2017.
As a conclusion to the Mellon Digital Humanities Initiative at Lehigh University, we will be hosting a remarkable conference .
Our (Digital) Humanity: Storytelling, Media Organizing and Social Justice is an innovative community conference that will locate the budding field of digital humanities at the intersection of public humanities, digital scholarship, oral history, “media organizing” & social justice. Keynote Speakers include Malkia Cyril, Juan González and Suzanne Snider.
The conference will create an inter-generational convergence space for members of social movements, community based public historians, students, and activist-scholars to network, share their digital projects, offer digital capacity building trainings and strengthen collaboration.
This is not your average academic conference. ODH2018 will emphasize local knowledge, work to create accessible spaces for people inside and outside of the academy, and create a memorable, kid-friendly experience that will include cultural programming and social events in addition to conference sessions and keynotes.
The Call for Participation is open and the deadline to submit proposals is November 15.
