CUNYs Digital Humanities Initiative is hosting its annual “lightning talks” event in a few weeks. I’ve participated in this event a couple of times in the past. As a presenter, it offers a friendly audience of CUNY colleagues and requires minimal prep (a “lightning talk” is a roughly three-minute precis of a project with maximum three slides). As a spectator, it offers a breathtaking array of work from colleagues across the CUNYverse representing a diverse range of disciplines and approaches. Pedagogical projects are warmly welcomed. The deadline is November 6th to apply as a presenter. So come! Details and link to submit are below.
Come present your digital projects, ongoing digital humanities work, or research questions at the Fourth Annual CUNY Digital Humanities Initiative Lightning Talks event.
When: Tuesday, November 13, 2018 from 6:30 to 8:30 PM
Who: All CUNY Students, Faculty, and Staff
Where: The Graduate Center, CUNY, Room C198
What: Present your digital humanities project, research, or questions during a 3-minute / 3-slide “lightning” talk. Lightning talks offer a very brief insight into your ongoing digital humanities project, research, or activity to a community of engaged CUNY colleagues.
How to participate: Sign up using this form before November 6th.
Don’t miss this year’s CUNY DHI event, featuring a keynote lecture by Kim Knight titled “Wearable Interfaces and Feminist Sleeper Agents.” Following the keynote, CUNY students, faculty, and staff will share their projects through short 3-minute, 3 slide talks, showcasing the diverse and innovative digital humanities projects happening across the CUNY system. We invite individual students, faculty, staff or groups from all disciplines to join more than 50 scholars who have already shared their projects in previous CUNY DHI events (learn more about some of these projects in the CUNY DHI website). We welcome first-time presenters, as well as those who have participated in past CUNY DHI Lightning Talks.
Reception to follow in Room 5307. This event is free and open to the public.
Please share this call widely with friends and colleagues whom you think might be interested in joining the CUNY Digital Humanities Initiative to present their work.
We look forward to seeing you there and to welcoming you into the CUNY DHI community!
Register to participate here.
Deadline: November 6th, 2018
