Digital Frontiers 2015

Digital Frontiers 2015


We are excited to announce that Digital Frontiers 2015 will be hosted by the School of Arts and Humanities and the Emerging Media and Communication program at University of Texas at Dallas. The conference will be held in the Alexander Clark Center and the beautiful new Edith O'Donnell Arts and Technology Building at the center of the UT-D campus. The conference will take place September 17-19, 2015.

Digital Frontiers is a project of the UNT Libraries to explore 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.

In addition to an annual conference and THATCamp, periodic webinar conversations with national leaders in digital humanities highlight interdisciplinary efforts in the development and use of digital resources for humanities research, teaching, and learning.

The UTD EMAC program and School of A&H join the UNT Libraries and the TWU Libraries as major partners in the Digital Frontiers Project, along with sponsors The Portal to Texas History and the Texas State Historical Association.

We invite institutions, businesses, and organizations who wish to invest in the Digital Frontiers community to consider one of these sponsorship options.

Digital Frontiers is committed to providing a harassment-free environment for everyone. Please review our Statement of Inclusion.
