Call for Papers: New Directions in the Humanities

The University of British Columbia will host the Thirteenth International Conference on New Directions in the Humanities in Vancouver, British Columbia on June 17-19, 2015. The organizers recently issued a CFP with a special focus on “From ‘Digital Humanities’ to a Humanities of the Digital.”

The CFP invites paper presentations, workshops/interactive sessions, posters/exhibits, or colloquia on issues such as:

The ‘digital’ as a social imaginary: exploring historical continuities and ruptures in social and cultural practices in the era of digital cultures.
The digital within the humanities: new methods and tools for documentation, research, and representation.
The political economy of digital humanities: e-learning, e-publishing, and the reframing of disciplines and institutions.
Big data and little data; negotiating the public and the private.
Open access and open cultures: developing sustainable knowledge ecologies
Adapting methodologies and focus in the digital age: has the dust settled on the ‘digital humanities’?
From the digital humanities, to a humanities of the digital; rebuilding the humanities in the shadow of the digital, and developing a humanities of the digital.

The proposal submission deadline is December 4. For more information on the conference, including submission information, see the New Directions in the Humanities website.
