of Nebraska-Lincoln (UNL) will host the sixth annual Nebraska Digital 
Workshop on October 14-15, 2011 and seeks proposals for digital 
presentations by pre-tenure faculty, post-doctoral fellows, and advanced 
graduate students working in digital humanities.  Applications will be 
vetted and the best work of early career scholars in the field of digital 
humanities will be selected and presented in a forum where it can be 
critically evaluated, improved and showcased.  The Center will invite two 
nationally recognized senior scholars in digital humanities to UNL to 
participate with CDRH faculty and to work with the early career scholars. 
Selected scholars will receive full travel reimbursement and an honorarium 
for presenting their work at the Nebraska Digital Workshop. 

Selection criteria include: significance in primary disciplinary field, 
technical innovation, theoretical and methodological sophistication, and 
creativity of approach.

Please send proposed workshop abstract, curriculum vitae, and a 
representative sample of digital work via URL or disk on or before April
