(deadline October 20, 2016): Nordic Digital Humanities Conference (DHN).
Gothenburg, 14-16 March 2017
Digital Humanities in the Nordic Countries

2nd conference

The association Digital Humanities in the Nordic Countries (DHN) was founded in
2015. Its aim is to further and strengthen digital humanities research,
education, and communication in the Nordic countries including the Baltic
States. DHN wants to provide a platform for collaboration and make the Nordic
Digital Humanities more visible internationally. DHN favours a broad, inclusive
definition of Digital Humanities.

Call for papers

DHN calls for abstracts for its 2017 conference in Gothenburg, Sweden. The
conference is organised by the Centre for Digital Humanities at the University
of Gothenburg and will be held at the Conference Centre Wallenberg, March
14–16, 2017.

DHN2017 invites submission of abstracts on any aspects of the digital
humanities, but we particularly welcome contributions that address the topics

Nordic Textual Resources and Practices:As a number of databases with texts are
emerging through editorial and other projects, there is need for close
collaboration on the possibilities for exploring, merging and comparing the
collections across borders. We encourage proposals on practices, tools,
platforms and analyses for new kinds of collaborations. 

Visual and Multisensory Representations of Past and Present:This topic explores
visualization in its many different configurations (visual, audible and
multi-sensory) not only as a representation of data, but also as an interface, a
mode of interpretation, and a tool for critical analysis. We invite scholars who
want to explore and demonstrate visualizations in – and of – digital
humanities, and within the fields of cultural heritage, digital culture,
artistic practices, and platforms for research. 

The Digital, the Humanities, and the Philosophies of Technology:How do the
fields of media theory and different philosophies of technology concerning the
relation of man, machine and environment relate to current debates within the
field of digital humanities? How can we apply for example posthuman, media
archaeological, philosophical and anthropocenic perspectives to the question of
the digital within the academic practice?

Forms of presentations

1) Posters.Posters (abstracts: 750 words) can be proposed in any topic. They can
show on-going projects or present a tool or software. Posters (format AO) will
be displayed throughout the conference at the venue site and should be
self-explanatory, visually catching, and provide contact information.

2) Long paper presentations.Papers (abstracts: 750 words) present research
results and/or methods or new digital resources, or discuss a theoretical or
methodological question. Paper presentations are supposed to take 20 min plus 10
min time for Q&A.

3) Short paper presentations.Short papers (abstracts: 500 words) present
research ideas, approaches and projects that are recently started. Short paper
presentations are supposed to take 10 min time plus 5 min Q&A.

4) Panels.Panels consist of three to six participants who discuss a topic. It is
expected that the panelists introduce themselves and their points of view
briefly at the beginning of the panel and then start a moderated discussion.
Panels are 90 min long, one third of the time is used each for introductory
statements, panel discussion, and discussions with the audience each. The
organiser/s of panels send in a short description of the panel's topic (1500
words) together with a confirmed list of panelists.

5) Pre-Conference Workshops.Workshops take about half a day, prior to the
conference (Monday morning to lunch/Monday afternoon). Proposals should include
the workshop's title and a short description of its topic (1500 words), contact
information of the person/s responsible. They should also include the
approximate number of participants and the kind of technical equipment that will
be needed. The contact person will be responsible for communicating necessary
information to the registered participants. Participants in the workshops must
be registered for the conference.

Note: only one poster or paper per presenter or presentation team will be
accepted. An additional proposal of a workshop or the participation in a panel
is permitted.
