Abstract

The organizing committee of the first student conference of the Centre de recherche interuniversitaire sur les humanités numériques (CRIHN) is calling on students to participate in its first conference with the theme of memory in the digital humanities. This conference focuses on memory in digital humanities, a subject with important theoretical, technical and pragmatic implications. The memory we seek to explore is that of consciousness and matter and the relation between the two.

Announcement

Argument

This first CÉHNUM conference focuses on memory in digital humanities, a subject with important theoretical, technical and pragmatic implications. The memory we seek to explore is that of consciousness and matter and the relation between the two. Our theme is extended to three areas of research:

  • History and archive: the preservation of knowledge and the past shifts to a digital format, offering new ways of comprehending the archive;
  • Computer memory and database structure: computer memory is an architectural space that affects the relationship between individuals as well as humans and machines;
  • Collective or individual memory: the digital dissipates the limit between collective memory and individual memory, making it possible to study the difference between the two.

We welcome technical and theoretical proposals related to the three axes of the call.

CÉHNUM is a student conference that offers its participants a presentation experience that will be subject to a blind peer review process. This project was born from the desire to forge links between students wishing to get involved in the field of digital humanities in Canada. Thus, presentations in English and French will be offered, and we will provide a framework to facilitate meetings between young researchers. Two plenaries given by established researchers in the field will open and close the conference.

Submission guidelines

CÉHNUM accepts proposals of 300 words (excluding a short bibliography) for 15-minute presentations plus 5 minutes of Q&A. Proposals should be uploaded to the form as anonymous PDFs to facilitate the blind review process. We prefer in-person presentations, but we will reserve a few spots for people who cannot be there in person and want to present online: if you cannot travel to Montreal for the conference, it is necessary to specify this in the registration form,

to be completed before March 10th, 2023.

CÉHNUM is a student-led organization, and as such cannot offer travel grants.
