University of North Florida Digital Humanities Initiative (DHI)
Fall 2016 Digital Projects Showcase - Call for Proposals
Date: Wednesday, November 2, 2016, 8:30–noon
Location: Student Union West, rooms 3804, 3805, and 3806
This interactive showcase event will provide UNF students, faculty and staff 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. Presentations may highlight a project in its entirety, or may address a specific aspect of a larger undertaking. We are interested in presentations dealing with projects at any stage of development. Students may present their work on faculty–led projects or on other endeavors they have undertaken individually, whether as part of UNF coursework or in any other context.
Presenters will be provided with tables and trifold display boards, suitable for mounting posters 4” wide X 3” tall. The DHI can provide sample posters to assist presenters in getting started, and can help to print posters at minimal cost. The DHI will also work with presenters on a case–by–case basis to arrange for other types of displays.
The schedule for the event will be as follows: 8:30–10:00 Coffee and setup; 10:00 Opening remarks; 10:15–11:45 Digital Projects Showcase; 11:45 Closing remarks.
All UNF students, faculty and staff are welcome to participate. To apply, please submit a proposal including the following: 1) full title of poster/presentation; 2) names of all participants (with professional title, or major or program of study, as appropriate); 3) a description of the material to be presented (250 words max.); 4) name of faculty mentor or project leader, if applicable; and 5) an explanation of any special needs regarding technology or equipment.
Proposals should be submitted to Stephanie Weiss, firstname.lastname@example.org, by Friday, September 30, 2016.
