Dear Colleagues,

I’d like to share a Call for Proposals from the Association for Computers and the Humanities (ACH) for ACH 2021, which will be held virtually on July 22-23, 2021.

In partnership with the University of Houston’s US Latino Digital Humanities (USLDH) program and University Libraries, Texas Southern University, Rice University, Texas A&M College Station, Texas A&M Prairie View, UH Clear Lake, UH Downtown, and Houston Community College, ACH 2021 will provide a forum for conversations on an expansive definition of digital humanities in a broad array of subject areas, methods, and communities of practice.

  *   CFP details: https://ach.org/blog/2020/12/29/call-for-proposals-association-for-computers-and-the-humanities-2021/
  *   Deadline for the CFP: February 1, 2021
  *   Submission site: https://www.conftool.org/ach2021/

Please note the details for “Suggested Proposal Types and Duration” that is in the Call for Proposals at the ACH website.

ACH 2021 submissions will undergo fully anonymous peer review.  Please remove all identifying information from your proposal submission including author name and affiliation.

ACH recognizes that this work is inherently and inextricably sociopolitical, and thus especially welcomes proposals that emphasize social justice in the context of anti-racist work, Black studies, Latinx studies, Indigenous studies, cultural and critical ethnic studies, intersectional feminism, postcolonial and decolonial studies, and queer interventions in digital studies.

Areas of engagement include but are not limited to:

  *   Social justice
  *   Digital surveillance
  *   Environmental humanities & climate justice
  *   Computational and digital approaches to humanistic research and pedagogy
  *   Digital pedagogy, research, and activism during COVID-19
  *   Digital media, art, literature, history, music, film, and games
  *   Digital librarianship
  *   Digital humanities tools and infrastructures
  *   Humanistic research on digital objects and cultures
  *   Knowledge infrastructures
  *   Physical computing
  *   Resource creation, curation, and engagement
  *   Use of digital technologies to write, publish, and review scholarship

As an organization committed to cross-disciplinary engagement, ACH welcomes interdisciplinary proposals. We also are especially interested in receiving proposals from participants with a range of expertise and from a variety of roles, including alt-ac positions, employment outside of higher education, and graduate students. We further invite proposals from participants who are newcomers to digital humanities.

For questions and concerns about the CFP, conference program, submissions, Code of Conduct, or accessibility, please contact the program committee co-chairs:  Lorena Gauthereau and Tanya Clement (ach2021 [at] ach [dot] org ).

In gratitude and partnership,

The ACH 2021 Program Committee
