We are partnering with Wesleyan University, Trinity College, Yale University’s DH Lab, and the University of Connecticut to co-host the first Connecticut Digital Humanities conference. The event will be held at Trinity College in Hartford on February 29, 2020, with a reception the evening before.
If you are working on a digital project for your scholarship, or if you have assigned digital projects in your courses, please consider submitting a proposal to speak at the conference by October 1.
We are delighted to announce that Jacqueline Wernimont, Distinguished Chair of Digital Humanities and Social Engagement & Associate Professor of Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies at Dartmouth College will deliver the keynote address! The author of Numbered Lives: Life and Death in Quantum Media (MIT 2018) and co-editor with Elizabeth Losh of Bodies of Information: Feminist Debates in Digital Humanities (2018), Jacqueline Wernimont is an anti-racist, feminist scholar working toward greater justice in digital cultures. She writes about long histories of media and technology – particularly those that count and commemorate — and entanglements with archives and historiographic ways of knowing.
The conference is free and open to all to attend. We hope to see you there!
