HASTAC has issued a call for proposals for the 2011 HASTAC V Conference. The theme this year is digital scholarly communication: the topics they seek include (among other things) copyright challenges, expanding the digital arts to include humanities (and vice-versa), new forms of research in the digital humanities, and strategies for digital scholarly communication.
MPublishing’s own Phil Pochoda, Director of the UMichigan Press, is being hosted by the Institute for the Humanities as one of three short-term Digital Humanities Fellows in Fall 2011, and will be involved in HASTAC V. The keynote speakers are Siva Vaidhyanathan (The Googlization of Everything), Dan Cohen (Open Access and Crowd Sourcing), Josh Greenberg (Public Digital Display), Dan Atkins (Cyber-infrastructure), and Cathy Davidson (Reading, Writing, Critical Thinking, and Data Mining: Reclaiming the Information Age).
The conference will be held on the Ann Arbor Campus on December 2 and 3, with an unconference planned for December 1–details forthcoming on the website. The deadline for submitting your proposal is September 15th, 2011.
