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 colloquium.

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.

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.

We welcome abstracts from current students who will graduate before June 2011.
