From the call:
Network Detroit: Digital Theory and Practice (September 27-28, 2013) will bring together Detroit-area digital humanities scholars. The metropolitan Detroit digital humanities context includes elite universities and small liberal arts colleges, a private sector accustomed to civic activism, and world-class heritage institutions accustomed to collaborating with corporate partners. Given this regional context, the Network Detroit conference will be a laboratory for working out ways to re-imagine the boundaries that dominate discussions about the future of the digital humanities: large versus small, center versus camp, elite versus upstart, disciplinary versus collaborative, peer review versus public interest. The conference, hosted by Lawrence Technological University (Southfield, Mich.), will showcase the number and types of projects, innovative techniques and use of resources, and accessibility issues both for researchers and the public.
Proposals of approximately 500 words are due by May 1, 2013. For more information, visit http://detroitdh.org/cfp/.
