        Subject: Graduate Study in the Digital Humanities: Proposals for position papers for DH2018 panel

Dear all

I’m seeking position papers on the digital futures of graduate study in the
humanities, to be proposed as a panel for the DH 2018 conference in Mexico.
It’s envisaged that panelists will have the option to revise their
contributions for publication after the conference, for a volume entitled *The
Digital Futures of Graduate Study in the Humanities* that Gabriel Hankins,
Simon Appleford and I are in the process of planning. So if you or someone
you know has a perspective on this topic that isn’t given the airtime it
deserves, please get in touch.

All the best



*Graduate Study in the Digital Humanities: Critical Assessments and
Potential Futures*

As an array of graduate certificate programs, MA-level programs, and
doctoral programs in the field has emerged, the Digital Humanities seems to
have passed from its moment of insurgency to a phase of
institutionalization. But how is specific graduate-level work in these
programs imagined, planned, and realized? What are the available models and
options, and what do we know about their outcomes for both students and
faculty? What has failed, and why? How might we reimagine current models of
graduate education in order to address ongoing challenges to the
humanities? How do the answers to these questions change in different
national and transnational contexts?

This panel seeks ten-minute position papers and provocations which open up
these questions to those outside as well as inside the Digital Humanities
community. We invite concrete institutional answers to such questions, and
ones which critically assess both the available and the potential models.
Contributions from those outside the US and UK, people of colour,
postgraduate students, those in roles other than research and teaching, and
early career scholars are especially welcome.

Please send abstracts of 200-300w to Anouk Lang at anouk.lang at ed.ac.uk by
Friday 24 November.

        Subject: Teaching with #DigHist

Last year, the American Historical Association's blog AHA Today
http://blog.historians.org/ launched Teaching w/ #DigHist
http://blog.historians.org/category/teaching-with-digital-history/ , a
monthly series on using digital history projects and tools in the
classroom. The series has explored teaching topics as diverse as 

the Civil Rights Movement

medieval charters
http://blog.historians.org/2017/02/using-charters-to-teach-medieval-history/ ,

and 19th-century print culture

through digital history projects. We've also published posts on using digital tools such as 

Google Map



for classroom assignments and projects.

We would now like to invite contributors to the series. If you teach
digital history, or even just use digital tools or projects in the
classroom occasionally and have used an existing digital history project or
tool to good effect, share your pedagogical methods with your fellow

Please get in touch with blog editor Kritika Agarwal at
kagarwal at historians.org with questions or ideas for submission.
