Digital Humanities Summer Institute 2011
Graduate Student Colloquium
June 7-9, 2011

CALL FOR PAPERS: The DHSI will be sponsoring its third annual graduate
student colloquium in June 2011. Graduate students and postdoctoral
fellows attending the Institute are invited to participate in the 2011

Abstracts are now being accepted for presentations focusing on all 
aspects of graduate student research in the digital humanities, 
including, but not limited to, the graduate student’s role in personal 
and institutional research projects, tool application and development, 
perspectives on digital humanities implications for their own research 
and pedagogy, etc.

The colloquium begins on the second day of the Summer Institute and takes
place over three days (Tuesday through Thursday) after classes end in the
afternoon. Four graduate students will present at each hour-long session.

Presentations will be informal and strictly limited to ten (10) minutes
per presenter, with time for Q&A reserved at session’s end. The sessions
will be open to all DHSI attendees.

We invite proposals of 150-300 words for these presentations. Successful
abstracts for the 2011 colloquium will focus on the individual student’s
role in digital humanities research and application, as opposed to general
issues pertaining to digital humanities. Potential presenters should be
enrolled in a PhD or MA program, or hold a post-doctoral fellowship, at
the time of abstract submission. We welcome abstracts from current
students who will graduate before June 2011.

Please send abstracts to <grad.dhsi at gmail.com>. Deadline for submissions
is December 17, 2010. All who have submitted an abstract will be notified
by mid-February 2011. All those whose work is accepted for presentation at
the Graduate Student Colloquium will receive a tuition scholarship.

For more information, contact Cara Leitch <cmleitch at uvic.ca> or Diane
Jakacki <diane.jakacki at lcc.gatech.edu>.
