        Subject: Call for Proposals: Digital Frontiers 2015 (9/17-20/2015 UT-Dallas; Deadline 4/30/2015)

Digital Frontiers seeks conference submissions that explore creativity and collaboration across disciplinary boundaries in the arena of public humanities and cultural memory for the fourth annual Digital Frontiers Conference and THATCamp, September 17-19, 2015 at the University of Texas at Dallas. Submissions may include individual papers, fully-constituted panels, birds-of-a-feather discussions, hands-on tutorials, or posters. We encourage presentations that incorporate audio-visual/multimedia elements.

Established in 2012 to respond to the need for an affordable, high-quality conference that addressed the emerging field of digital humanities from a variety of perspectives, Digital Frontiers is a truly interdisciplinary experience. The conference brings together scholars and students, librarians and archivists, genealogists and public historians to share their experience of using digital resources in the humanities.

We encourage contributions from anyone who creates or uses digital collections or tools for humanities work, including scholars, educators, genealogists, archivists, technologists, librarians, and students. We welcome submissions from local and regional historical and genealogical societies, and anyone working in the public humanities. The goals of this conference are to bring a broad community of users together to share their work across disciplinary and administrative boundaries, and to explore the value and impact that digital resources have on education and research.

Possible Topics include but are by no means limited to:

●     Specific ways digital libraries have changed the state of humanities research

●     Digital tools and methods for conducting humanities research

●     New media tools for teaching and making in the classroom

●     Using digital collections in the humanities classroom

●     How digital preservation serves humanities research

●     Overcoming faculty resistance to digital humanities projects and resources

●     Theoretical interventions in cultural memory and public humanities (postcolonial DH, queering DH, radical making, etc.)

●     Incorporating DH into the classroom across humanities disciplines (including student perspectives)
