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  

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  

Type of presentations:

- Short paper (20 minutes)
