Digital Humanities Caucus

Participants Wanted: Digital Humanities Lightning Talks

The Digital Humanities Caucus of the American Studies Association seeks ASA conference attendees to participate in a session called “Digital Shorts: New Platforms of Knowledge Production and Resistance.”  The session will be composed of “lightning talks” focusing on current projects, papers, proposals, publishing, teaching, or related activities: just about anything digital in American Studies. 

Participants describe their digital projects in 3-5 minute presentations, receive community feedback, and, finally, discuss issues raised by the talks. There’s no need to write a mini-paper.  Speaking from PowerPoint slides, a Web site, or your own memory are all encouraged. We will have a computer/projector in the room with PowerPoint loaded and live Internet access available.

Digital Shorts will take place Friday, November 16 from 10am to 11:45am at the annual conference at the Puerto Rico Convention Center in Room 202a.

To sign-up, please email an abstract of your intended lightning presentation (250 words MAX), your name, and affiliation to .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address). We will also accept presentations at the session, time permitting.

Important Note: This is informal, so you can (and should!) make a presentation even if your name appears elsewhere on the ASA program.
