4th Annual Digital Humanities Conference
October 21 @ 12:00 pm - October 22 @ 6:00 pm EDTFree
The Critical Digital Humanities Initiative (CDHI) at the University of Toronto cordially invites you to our fourth annual DH Conference, to take place virtually on 21-22 October 2021.
Registration now open here!
This year’s conference foregrounds critical digital humanities research and praxis. Critical DH is an intersectional field that emphasizes questions of power, social justice, and critical theory in making, analyzing, and using digital technologies. This is a version of digital humanities that places anti-racist, de/anti/postcolonial, feminist, and queer/trans/non-binary work at its core, and which understands our current historic shift in digital technology as an opportunity for social and political transformation. Critical Digital Humanities foregrounds creative praxis, co-creation, public engagement, and community-based research.
The 4th Annual DH Conference builds on the work of the Digital Humanities Network (DHN), which hosted the first DHN conference in 2016. In this year’s conference, we ask DH researchers and practitioners to interrogate power and culture with/through the frameworks of humanistic inquiry and digital technology. At the same time, the conference aims to foster collaborations and critical scholarship across the tri-campus community by providing a platform for people to share ideas, discuss trends and network with colleagues from UofT. While our focus this year emphasizes critical DH, all DH researchers, practitioners, and the DH-curious are encouraged to attend!
