The University of North Florida Digital Humanities Initiative (DHI) promotes collaboration on interdisciplinary projects that combine the use of technology with materials and methodologies from the Humanities, Fine Arts and Social Sciences. The DHI coordinates events exploring the theory and practice of Digital Humanities scholarship, and provides a forum for faculty to work together on the design and implementation of digital projects. The DHI helps faculty to engage students directly in hands–on Digital Humanities research, within and beyond the classroom, and promotes opportunities for members of the UNF community to collaborate on digital projects with cultural institutions in Northeast Florida. Learn more about the UNF DHI at unfdhi.org/.

This inaugural interactive showcase event, hosted by the DHI, will be held on the morning of Wednesday, November 2, 2016. The goal is to provide staff, students, and faculty from all colleges and programs at UNF an opportunity to share their work on digital projects. Participants are encouraged to consider innovative ways to display their work and engage with the public. We are interested in presentations dealing with projects at any stage of development. Presentations may highlight a project in its entirety, or may address a specific aspect of a larger undertaking. Proposals are due October 7 with acceptance notification by October 10.

Presenters will be provided with tables and trifold display boards, suitable for mounting posters at a maximum size of 4 ft wide X 3 ft tall. Optional workshops to help participants get started on their posters will be held on Wed., Oct. 12, and Thurs., Oct. 13, 10:00-11:30 a.m. in the Thomas G. Carpenter Library, 2102B. The DHI will also assist participants in printing their posters on campus at minimal cost. The DHI will work with presenters on a case–by–case basis to arrange for other types of displays or presentations.

Proposal submission has closed. Questions about the event or submission process may be addressed to Stephanie Weiss at s.weiss@unf.edu.
