within the arts, humanities and heritage domains are welcome.

The conference will take place at the University's residential conference
facility, The Edge.

Keynote Speakers

• Professor Laura Mandell (Director, Initiative for Digital Humanities,
Media and Culture, Texas A & M University) 

• Dr Fred Truyen (Associate Professor in the Faculty of Arts and Head of

Western Sydney)
