CFP for Keystone Digital Humanities conference due January 2, 2015

See call for presentations below for the Keystone Digital Humanities Conference. The name of the conference is taken from Pennsylvania’s official nickname “The Keystone State,” and although they encourage proposals from within the state they welcome proposals from anywhere, and from any area of the digital humanities.


Keystone Digital Humanities, a conference at the University of Pennsylvania with the KeystoneDH Initiative


The Keystone Digital Humanities conference will be held in the Kislak Center for Special Collections, Rare Books and Manuscripts at the University of Pennsylvania Libraries, July 22-24, 2015. Proposals are now invited for long presentations (20 minutes), short presentations (7 minutes), and project showcases (10 minutes) in all areas of digital humanities. Presentations may take the form of interactive presentations, short papers, project demos, or panel discussions. We welcome proposals from emerging and veteran students, teachers, and scholars. For more information, visit our conference website.

The community will be invited to vote on proposals that they would like to see included in the program. The 10 proposals with the highest scores are guaranteed a slot at the conference. The Program Committee will curate the remainder of the program in an effort to ensure diversity in program content and presenters. Community votes will, of course, still weigh heavily in these decisions.

Please send your name, email address, and a proposal of 200-300 words to The proposal deadline is January 2, 2015, and community peer review will run from January 15-February 15. Proposers will be notified by March 1.

We anticipate that we will have a small number of travel bursaries for graduate and undergraduate students.
