This Project Will Self-Destruct in Five Years

last modified Apr 30, 2012 02:14 PM
Call for presentations for the Cambridge Digital Humanities Early Careers Researchers sub-network workshop 2012 'This Project Will Self-Destruct in Five Years: the beginning, middle and end of a digital humanities project, and how to keep it alive'.

Are you an Early Career Researcher at Cambridge with a research project which is digital or has a digital theme? Would you like to share your work with a wider audience? We are now calling for presentations of all digitally-themed research projects (ongoing or completed) to be showcased at the upcoming Cambridge Digital Humanities Early Careers Researchers sub-network workshop, 'This Project Will Self-Destruct in Five Years: the beginning, middle and end of a digital humanities project, and how to keep it alive'. The workshop will be held on Friday 8 June 2012 at CRASSH, University of Cambridge.

This showcase will take the form of lightning talks (a variation of the Pecha Kucha format), where each presentation is to be made in 3 minutes and with 1 image. Selected presentations will benefit from exposure to a broad audience consisting of Cambridge students, academics and the wider public. Presenters will also be able to provide more information to the audience in the form of handouts, and there will be opportunities over lunch and coffee later for guests to speak further with presenters and learn more about their projects.

If you are interested in giving a presentation, please e-mail Gethin Rees by 10 May. The email should include your name, e-mail address, website link (if you have one) and a short description of your research (around 75 words). Please note that slots for the vernissage are limited. Members of the Digital Humanities Network Steering Group and the workshop organisers will make a final selection based on academic quality. (Please note, we are only able to accept submissions for the lightning talks from Early Career Researchers at Cambridge, but attendance at the workshop itself is open to all).

We look forward to hearing from you!

The Digital Humanities Early Career Researchers sub-network team

We are a network of researchers at the University of Cambridge who are interested in how the use of digital tools is transforming scholarship in the humanities and social sciences. This transformation spans both the content and practice of humanities research, as the diffusion of digital technologies opens up new fields of study and generates research questions which breach traditional disciplinary boundaries.
