Seminar Program: Göttingen Dialog in Digital Humanities 2015

The dialog takes place on Tuesdays at 17:00 during the Summer semester (from April 21th until July 14th). The venue of the seminars is to be announced, at the Göttingen Centre for Digital Humanities (GCDH). The center’s address is: Heyne-Haus, Papendiek 16, 37073 Göttingen.

As announced in the Call For Papers, the dialogs will take the form of a 45 minute presentation in English, followed by 45 minutes of discussion and student participation. Due to logistic and time constraints, the 2015 dialog series will not be video-recorded or live-streamed.  A summary of the talks, together with photographs and, where available, slides, will be uploaded to the GCDH and eTRAP websites. For this reason, presenters are encouraged, but not obligated, to prepare slides to accompany their papers. Please also consider that the €500 award for best paper will be awarded on the basis of both the quality of the paper *and* the delivery of the presentation.

Camera-ready versions of the papers must be sent to Gabriele Kraft at gddh(at)gcdh(dot)de by April 30th. The papers will not be uploaded to the GCDH and eTRAP websites but, as previously announced, published as a special issue of Digital Humanities Quarterly (DHQ). For this reason, papers must be submitted in an editable format (e.g. .docx or LaTeX), not as PDF files.
A small budget for travel cost reimbursements is available.

Everybody is welcome to join in!
If anyone would like to tweet about the dialogs, the Twitter hashtag of this series is #gddh15.
For any questions, do not hesitate to contact gddh(at)gcdh(dot)de.

We look forward to seeing you in Göttingen!
