Call for Proposals

Connecticut Digital Humanities Conference
February 21-22, 2025
New Britain, CT

After a few years’ hiatus, we are delighted to announce that the third Connecticut Digital Humanities Conference (CTDH) will take place on February 21-22, 2025 at Central Connecticut State University in New Britain. The conference will also mark a return to the in-person format after a virtual version in 2021. We seek participation from a broad range of digital humanities practitioners, including participants from higher education, community and cultural organizations, K-12 education, state and local government, and the general public.

CTDH endeavors to bring together a network of DH practitioners committed to advancing collaborative work in digital humanities research and pedagogy across the New England region. CTDH provides individuals with an opportunity to learn new techniques and skills, hear about their colleagues’ DH projects, and become part of a vibrant and diverse community of teachers, learners, and practitioners. CTDH is an excellent opportunity for getting feedback, developing skills, or sharing your work with other colleagues from across New England. While we encourage projects with a Connecticut focus, the conference is not limited to Connecticut-based projects or practitioners. For 2025, we especially welcome proposals that address digital humanities in diverse contexts, including museums, libraries, and archives; community organizing and activism; and public education.

We invite contributions from faculty researchers, unaffiliated scholars, librarians, museum professionals, technologists, undergraduate and graduate students, K-12 teachers, and community groups. We encourage those submitting proposals to consider formats beyond the traditional 20-minute paper, such as roundtables, multi-speaker panels, lightning talks, posters, and digital demonstrations. Proposals should be less than 300 words in length and should describe the 1) proposed topic; 2) session format; 3) names and affiliations of participants; and 4) anticipated audience for the session.

Proposals are due June 1, 2024. Proposals may be submitted via this Google Form. Presenters will be notified of acceptance by early July. More information can be found on the CTDH website. If you have questions, please contact Brian Matzke at bmatzke@ccsu.edu.
