Dear Colleagues,

Below, please find the CFP for the third Utah Symposium on the Digital Humanities. Last year’s event saw participants from areas well outside the western US and given the theme—“The Many Faces of Digital Humanities”—we hope to see similar interest for this year’s event. 

Best,
Brian

 Utah Symposium on the Digital Humanities – Call for Presentations 
The Many Faces of Digital Humanities 

--Introduction
The third Utah Symposium on the Digital Humanities—sponsored by the College of Humanities and Social Sciences and the Merrill-Cazier Library at Utah State University—will be held February 24, 2018, at the Utah State University Eccles Conference Center. This event aims to continue the scholarly conversation in Utah and surrounding states about Digital Humanities theories, pedagogy, research, tools, and programs being developed in the region. 

--Call for Presentations 
The symposium’s planning committee is currently considering proposals for presentations to be included in the symposium. If you would like to propose a presentation, please send a 500-word abstract and preferred presentation format (please see “Presentation Formats” below) to the symposium co-chairs: rylish moeller and Dory Cochran by November 15, 2017 to the following Gmail account: dhutah3 at gmail.com. 

--Presentation Topics 
This year’s theme is “The Many Faces of Digital Humanities.” 

In her TED Talk, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie discusses the dangers of single stories: when we listen to only one story, we risk making assumptions about phenomena, cultures, and data based upon a single source. This can lead to what Adichie calls a “critical misunderstanding” of what we observe. DHU3 will look to avoid such misunderstandings by looking at the multiple stories, the many faces that make up the Digital Humanities. The committee welcomes proposals that explore the wide range of scholarly and pedagogical practices taking place under the rubric of digital humanities today, as well as proposals that explore digital humanities in relation to issues of inclusion, diversity, access, and privilege. This would include, but is not limited to: 

• The role of institutional privilege and funding in undertaking digital humanities work 

• Digital humanities beyond the university 

• Differential access to technology in our communities 

• The role of race, gender, age, and sexuality in digital humanities and digital culture 

• Digital humanities and conversations relating to disability and accessibility 

• Post/anti-colonial digital humanities 

• Digital humanities as/and social justice 

• Archives, archival practices, and the digital humanities 

• Library partnerships and other archival collaborations 


--Presentation Format 

This year the symposium will offer multiple presentation formats including the following: 


• Poster 

• Interactive panel (3-4 panelists, 75-minutes with a focus on interactive audience participation) 

• Roundtable discussion (organized panel of 5-minute talks with time/space for discussion) 

• Hands-on workshop (make a proposal!) 

• Pecha Kucha (20 slides, 20-seconds each) 
• Make/hack/play (make a proposal! Let’s see what we can do!)

• Lightning talk (5-minute talk) 
• Traditional 20-minute presentation (individual or panel) 

Given the purpose of this symposium, presentations should include a plan for audience participation and discussion. The symposium location will include audio/video equipment and Internet access.

        Subject: Sidney Digital Humanities: Monika Bednarek on Equipping students with digital tools for the humanities - Friday, 3rd of November 2017

Sydney Digital Humanities Research Group
Seminar

Equipping students with digital tools for the humanities – 
with a focus on text analysis.
Monika Bednarek, University of Sydney

As part of the new undergraduate curriculum, the Department of Linguistics will be offering a new, interdisciplinary (‘open pool’) unit of study entitled ‘Digital tools for the humanities’ (LNGS2628). The unit of study description is as follows:

New technologies are developing at a rapid pace and have enabled significant breakthroughs in collecting, analysing and visualising the textual data that are at the heart of many subjects. This interdisciplinary unit introduces students to the many uses of computers and digital tools, with specific focus on the analysis of spoken and written text. The unit will teach students how to use computer tools for the collection or analysis of discourse/text, for example social media, literature, fieldwork data, corporate communication, foreign language, interviews, news discourse and many more. The emphasis is on free and easy-to-use tools and no prior technical expertise is expected or required.

In this session I will start by offering my own thoughts on this unit, including ideas for assessment. I would then like to open the session up for input and discussion, including ideas for potential guest lectures from group members, thoughts on key readings, and discussion of the potential pitfalls as well as the opportunities of interdisciplinary teaching and learning. The session may also generate useful discussion about other future ‘Digital humanities’ units that could usefully complement this unit.

Her books include The Discourse of News Values (2017) and News Discourse (2012, both co-authored with Dr Helen Caple, UNSW), The Language of Fictional Television (2010), Emotion Talk Across Corpora (2008), and Evaluation in Media Discourse (2006).
