The deadline for the Bucknell Digital Scholarship Conference has been extended to June 15!

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 Collaboration.”

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 collaboration.

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:

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