Conference Schedule & Registration Posted

Summer is almost behind us and we’re gearing up for Network Detroit and Great Lakes Thatcamp. The schedule and registration are now posted for Network Detroit. One of the most exciting changes this year is having more Detroit in Network Detroit. Lisa Nakamura’s keynote will be at the Detroit Historical Museum with dinner and drinks. Great Lakes Thatcamp will be hosted by Wayne State University. We want to get people into our beautiful city to experience and share what it has to offer!

CFP Deadline Extended and MSU Sponsorship

We hope you were able to participate in HASTAC 2015 at Michigan State University! There was an incredible showing from digital humanities scholars, both locally and nationally. As we connected with them and discussed the future of Detroit-area digital humanities, we often heard: “I want to submit to Network Detroit, but the deadline is during HASTAC!” We heard your concerns and have decided to extend the deadline to our usual deadline of June 15th. That means you’ve got 2 more summer weeks to submit to be a part of Network Detroit 2015!

We also want to announce the returning sponsorship of the Michigan State College of Arts and Letters. Thank you for your continuing support of local digital humanities, from HASTAC to Network Detroit and beyond. Faculty and students at MSU’s College of Arts and Letters explore human expression, experience, and values through a wide variety of subjects including the creative and performing arts, languages and literature, art history, philosophy, and religious studies, as well as the interdisciplinary fields of American studies, ancient studies, humanities, humanities-prelaw, and women’s studies.

The Institute serves as a national and international centerpiece for scholarly research in the humanities and creative work in the arts at the University of Michigan.

We are also proud to announce a new sponsorship by the University of Michigan Press. With a rich history of publishing expertise, University of Michigan Press continues to lead in the development of digital scholarship and to support the dissemination of knowledge as widely and freely as possible.
