Intersectionality in Digital Humanities Conference

1 Aug 2016 (All day)

The last few years have witnessed a movement towards a more open and inclusive Digital Humanities field. The Alliance for Digital Humanities Organizations has appointed a Multilingualism/Multiculturalism committee to address these issues and accepted a special interest group, Global Outlook: Digital Humanities, to try to break down barriers between countries in the Global North and the Global South. Intersectional studies are also developing within DH to try to bring a plurality of voices into the conversation.

The KU Leuven Intersectionality in DH Conference will offer a platform for this plurality of voices. It will host several lectures and presentations that deal with issues such as gender, inequality, minority report and DH. You can find the programme and abstracts here.

The Intersectionality in DH Conference will take place from the 15th to the 17th of September, immediately after the KU Leuven Digital Humanities Summer School. Registration beforehand is required. You can register for both events via this link.

All presentations will take place in the Justus Lipsiuszaal (8th floor), Faculty of Arts, Blijde Inkomststraat 21, 3000 Leuven. Click here to see where the KU Leuven Faculty of Arts is located.
