The deadline for submissions: May 1, 2015
Call for Participation
The conference will address a wide range of issues such as open access
publishing, global knowledge creation and sharing, open educational
resources, the digital humanities, current and future scholars as
publishers, and open source technologies. It will provide opportunities to
explore a new array of connections among scholarship, technology, and
community, all focused around the broad theme of openness.
The program will consist of a mixture of invited plenary presentations, a
“next generation scholars” panel discussion, brief “lightning talks,” a
2-day development sprint, and workshops. A preliminary schedule, including
the updated registration fees, can be found on the conference website:
“Social Knowledge Creation in the Humanities,” our INKE- and Iter-hosted event aligned with DHSI, will take place from 1pm-4pm on Sunday June 7th 2015 in Hickman 105 on the UVic campus. This event will provoke conversation and stimulate activity around issues of social knowledge creation. We welcome researchers, students, and practitioners who wish to engage intellectually with this topic, as well as to do some hands-on experimentation with related practices and initiatives.
The program, posted on dhsi.org/events.php, will include an opening talk by Dr. John Maxwell (SFU), as well as lightning paper sessions and workshops. This event is open and free for all DHSI 2015 attendees. If you are interested in joining us, please confirm your participation by May 1st 2015 by registering for the event via https://www.eventbrite.ca/e/social-knowledge-creation-in-the-humanities-tickets-16210267346.
How can we shape the future of scholarly production to address the needs of many? What existing tools and platforms stimulate knowledge creation across communities? In the digital age, what role do scholars play in inspiring, developing, or harnessing social knowledge creation? Join us on June 7th to discuss these questions and more.
