Welcome to the Digital Frontiers Community

Digital Frontiers is a conference and community that explores creativity and collaboration across disciplinary boundaries in the arena of public humanities and cultural memory. Established in 2012 to respond to the need for an affordable, high-quality conference that addressed the emerging field of digital humanities from a variety of perspectives, Digital Frontiers is a truly interdisciplinary experience. The conference brings together scholars and students, librarians and archivists, genealogists and public historians to share their experience of using digital resources in the humanities.

Lawrence Public Library (LPL for short) is a community hub that believes in sharing knowledge and resources. We empower our community to imagine more together and grow a world we can all believe in.

We’re located in the heart of downtown Lawrence, KS, which means a quick walk to a wide array of meal options, daylife, nightlife, and local businesses.
