Questioning models:
Intersectionality in Digital Humanities.
Digital Editing, Literature and Gender Studies

Call for Papers

The Cologne Centre for eHumanities (CCeH) is organising a three-day
symposium from the 8th to the 10th of November at the University of
Cologne. The event aims at exploring intersectional approaches on
textual scholarship and Digital Humanities theories, practices, and
tools. A session will be dedicated to Italian and German women writers
during the Renaissance. This  specific case study is part of a project
funded by NetEx (Network and Exchange funding programme, University of
Cologne).

We welcome proposals in any area of scholarship, that pay specific
attention to intersectionality, and that employ digital and
collaborative approaches to the study or the editing of marginalised
subjectivities and their digital modelling and representations. We
encourage the submission of projects’ presentations at an advanced
stage that investigate how digital technologies can re/produce, enable
or restrict the construction of identities (e.g. in racialised and
gendered terms).

Researchers of all levels, including students and professional
practitioners, are welcome. We expect a diverse audience of textual
scholars, historians, information scientists, social scientists,
digital humanists, graduate students and interested members of the
public. The communication language of the symposium will be English,
but we are accepting proposals and papers in English, Italian and
German.

Type of presentations:

- Short paper (20 minutes)
- Lightning talk (10 minutes)
- Posters

To submit a paper, please email an abstract to up to 300 words as an
attachment to questioningmodelsdh at gmail.com by 31st August, 2017.
