Digital Humanities Summer Institute 2010
Graduate Student Colloquium
June 8-11, 2010

[Deadline has been extended to December 11, 2009.]

CALL FOR PAPERS: The DHSI will be sponsoring its second annual graduate student colloquium in June 2010. Graduate students attending the Institute are invited to participate in the 2010 colloquium entitled "Making Connections: Emerging Scholars in the Digital Humanities."

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 four days (Tuesday through Friday) during morning sessions prior to the start of classes. Three graduate students will present at each 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 300 word proposals for these presentations. Successful abstracts for the 2010 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 2010.

Please send abstracts to cmleitch@uvic.ca. Deadline for submissions is December 11, 2009. All who have submitted an abstract will be notified by the end of December.

For more information, contact Cara Leitch or Diane Jakacki.
