’Questioning models: Intersectionality in DH
University of Cologne, 8-10 November 2017. Deadline for abstracts is 30 August.
The Cologne Centre for eHumanities (CCeH) is organising a three-day symposium, 8-10 November, at the University of Cologne. The event aims at exploring intersectional approaches on textual scholarship and Digital Humanities theories, practices, and tools. A session will be dedicated to Italian and German women writers during the Renaissance. This specific case study is part of a project funded by NetEx (Network and Exchange funding programme, University of Cologne).
Proposals are welcomed in any area of scholarship, that pay specific attention to intersectionality, and that employ digital and collaborative approaches to the study or the editing of marginalised subjectivities and their digital modelling and representations. The submission of projects at an advanced stage that investigate how digital technologies can re/produce, enable or restrict the construction of identities (e.g. in racialised and gendered terms) are encouraged.
