Instruction or consultation best practices
Collaborating at the creation of a digital humanities program at your institution

Presentations should be 12-15 minutes in length, but we will also consider shorter lightning talks or project presentations.

Please submit your proposal (including your name, job title, institution, email address, and up to 250 words describing your proposed presentation) by February 19, 2021
