*Negotiating Borders through Digital Collaboration*

Bucknell University, with support from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation,
will host its third annual digital scholarship conference on October 28-30,
2016. The theme of the conference is “Negotiating Borders through Digital

This conference will bring together a broad community of
practitioners–faculty, researchers, librarians, educational technologists,
and students–who are using technology to rethink seemingly intractable
borders within and outside of the university. We define “borders” as
boundaries that limit access; conditions that differentiate insiders from
outsiders; or any obstacle that impairs open communication and

We invite proposals that explore or critique digital modes of scholarly,
cultural, and political intersectionality. Special consideration will be
given to proposals that demonstrate how crossing institutional boundaries,
whether within or beyond the university, can facilitate the expansion of
borders, broadly conceived.

Some topics may include:

   - Digital tools that bridge the gap between scholarship and teaching
   - Computational methods that explore intersections of identity, power,
   and social justice
   - Global and multilingual aspects of digital scholarship
   - The role of technology in creating communities of practice that bridge
   cultural, racial, and economic divides
   - Digital technologies that facilitate equitable collaborations between
   faculty and students, or that bridge the town/gown divide
   - New modes of inquiry that negotiate and rethink normative ideas of
   gender and sexuality
   - Forms of digital scholarship that allow for increased accessibility

Presentations may take the form of interactive presentations, project
demos, electronic posters, panel discussions, work-in-progress sessions,
workshops, or lightning talks.
