The Southern Illinois University Edwardsville IRIS Center in collaboration with the College of Arts and Sciences and Lewis and Clark Community College is hosting the interdisciplinary conference “Digital Humanities and the Undergraduate Experience” on April 26 & 27, 2019. We are currently seeking proposals from university and college students, staff, and faculty to present on their approach to integrating digital humanities approaches into undergraduate curriculum, informal learning environments, and student life.

  • Innovative approaches to using established digital humanities projects in the classroom
  • Undergraduates sharing their digital research
  • Engaging students in DH practices
  • DH integration within particular institutional settings
  • DH pedagogy and intersectionality
  • Approaches to DH curriculum that crosses disciplinary boundaries
  • Service learning, community engagement and the digital humanities
  • Undergraduate DH program design (ie. minors/majors/certificates)

By bringing together students, faculty, and practicing professionals, this conference will allow discussions about the intersection of original, collaborative research with pedagogy and curriculum design.
