Call for Proposals:  Poster Session on June 1
Do you work in the Humanities or support people who do?
Show us what you’ve got!

Join us during Summer Faculty Institute to celebrate and explore the range of Digital Humanities Scholarship, Research, and Teaching on campus! We welcome poster presentations that address, exemplify, and re-imagine the interdisciplinary nature of DH work and focus on the materiality of Digital Humanities.

The poster session will take place on June 1 from 3-4 pm in the main Gore Rotunda, immediately following the Public Humanities 2.0: Cultural Heritage Research-and-Teaching in a Digital Age workshop featuring Michelle Moravec, Jesse Stommel, LaTayna Autry, Janneken Smucker and Archana Kaku.  We encourage submissions from faculty, staff, instructors, librarians, research groups, undergraduate and graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, and independent scholars.

We welcome posters and demos on a wide variety of topics related to digital humanities, broadly construed, including but by no means limited to:

Project demos
Digital and/or print posters
Digital art
New media studies
GIS and mapping
Video game studies
Digital pedagogy
Algorithmic criticism
Text markup
Digital editions
Data mining
Software studies
Critical code studies
Data curation
Media archaeology
Text analytics
Learning technologies
Interactive media
We are seeking emerging projects, ideas, and scholars. In presenting your research with a poster, you should aim to use the poster as a means for generating active discussion of your research. Limit the text to about one-fourth of the poster space, and use visuals (graphs, photographs, schematics, maps, etc.) to tell your story.

Please submit a brief abstract (under 250 words) on your proposed poster or demo by Wednesday, May 27th, 2015.  If you have any questions or require more information, please e-mail Tracy Jentzsch,  jentzsch@udel.edu

The Summer Faculty Institute is the premiere event at the University of Delaware for faculty and staff to take advantage of the latest research and technological advances in classroom and online instruction. The program changes each year to reflect the latest progress demonstrated by UD faculty, the newest insights from educational research, and the latest opportunities presented by technological advances.  This year, we would also like to invite you!  Themes represented at this year’s Institute include different facets of teaching: community engagement, critical thinking, digital humanities, digital storytelling, and engaging difference.
