Call for Proposals: Conference Reviews

0

Happy New Year from the DRC!

As you continue making plans and setting goals for the new year, the DRC invites you to keep us in mind. We are working to expand the conferences represented on the DRC site, and are seeking reviewers willing to share their conference experiences with us.

If you are attending a conference or conference session related to digital rhetoric and/or digital humanities and you would like to publish a review on the DRC site, please email DRC fellow Laura (drcfellows@umich.edu) or tweet at us (@SweetlandDRC or @gonzlaur).

Let us know the following:

  • What conference will you attend? Are you reviewing specific session(s) or providing an overview of the conference in general?
  • When is the conference taking place? How soon after the conference will you send in your review?
  • How will learning about this conference or session(s) benefit the DRC community?

We are really flexible on the format and style of the reviews, and encourage multimodal pieces. Posts on the DRC site are usually between 500-1000 words, but we would love to see  creative reviews in other formats. Currently, we are especially interested in reviews from DH sessions at the 2014 MLA Annual Convention; Let us know if you’re going!

In the meantime, please check out some excellent reviews already on our site, including Andie Silva’s review of 2013 Great Lakes THATCamp, Lindsey Harding’s review of ISSoTL, and our latest review of a video-making extravaganza at 2013 WIDE-EMU by Timothy Briggs, Laura Gonzales, Alexandra Hidalgo, Casey Miles, and Crystal VanKooten.

As you can see, our is to illustrate the wide array of interests and the excellent work produced by members of the digital rhetoric community.

Thanks for sharing your work with us!
