Call for Proposals - Greater Boston Digital Research & Pedagogy Symposium

Posted: Fri, Jan 12th 2024

The Greater Boston Digital Research and Pedagogy Symposium is a city-wide gathering of students, scholars, and practitioners working at the intersection of technology and the humanities. Hosted at a different institution each year, the Symposium is a key site for promoting cross-institutional collaboration and showcases the diverse perspectives of our field.

The Tufts University Libraries are excited to host the third Greater Boston Digital Research and Pedagogy Symposium on April 12th, 2024. The symposium will be held on the Tufts Medford campus with select sessions streamed online.

We invite submissions for participation in a one day symposium of greater Boston-area scholars, community members, library and archives professionals, students, and practitioners across disciplines who engage with digital approaches, pedagogy, and methods in humanities and social sciences research. The CFP is open until January 31st, 2024. 


We are especially keen on proposals that center around research, teaching, and approaches engaged with queer digital humanities and critical mapping, and that explore and emphasize issues around identity, social justice, and technology. We welcome proposals on work at various stages in the research process. In addition to this theme, we seek proposals related, but not limited, to the following: 

  • Digital and computational approaches to humanistic research and pedagogy
  • Digital storytelling 
  • Digital cultural heritage 
  • Digital public humanities 
  • Critical approaches to metadata, taxonomy, information architecture 
  • Ethical approaches to data collection, preservation, and sustainability 
  • Critical coding and AI 
  • Environmental humanities & climate justice 
  • Digital musicology and sound studies 
  • Community engaged DH; co-creation and co-curation with BIPOC and/or LGBTQIA+ communities
