New York Digital Humanities Symposium

University at Buffalo, North Campus

Saturday, December 1st, 2018


Registration is free and open to all, deadline extended to November 25.

Conference sessions will be available live online.

The goals of this conference are to form a sustained digital humanities working group within the SUNY system and to facilitate communication and collaboration more broadly across New York state and its regions. We believe the SUNY system could serve as a backbone for greater exchange between DH efforts across New York institutions and hope our conference can begin the dialogue on how we might proceed toward building such connections and the infrastructures to sustain them.
This free event is intended as the first of these collaborative efforts, and is being co-coordinated by faculty from two SUNY campuses. We look forward to connecting with others from the New York area whose work falls within any area of the digital humanities or related fields, whether as a researcher, teacher, academic staff, or other professional. In addition to proposals for inter-campus collaboration, the symposium will also offer a chance for us to take a survey of the exciting projects and pedagogy taking place across the state, including recent work and project still in early development. Following the conference, findings from our conversations will be collected and shared.
For more information on the Symposium program, including the (optional) free DH workshops that will be offered, see the Schedule page.
We are able to host this free public event thanks to the support of the University at Buffalo’s Vice Provost for Educational Affairs via the Professional Pathways Program. Special thanks to the Folger Shakespeare Library and our local coordinating partners Rachel Starry, Heidi Dodson, Jeff Good, and the staff of the Center for Educational Innovation.
