More Info:

The Roy Rosenzweig Center for History and New Media invites submissions for the third annual Current Research in Digital History conference, to be held in Arlington, VA, on March 14, 2020. Submissions should offer historical arguments and interpretations rather than showcase digital projects. The format of 10 minute presentations provides an opportunity to make arguments on the basis of ongoing research in larger projects. Graduate students are encouraged to submit proposals. Four $200 stipends are available to support presenters' travel to the conference. Presentations will be peer-reviewed and published in an online publication that accommodates dynamic visualizations and narrative. The conference will feature special sessions presenting the work of the Digital Scholarship Lab at the University of Richmond.


Submissions due: October 25, 2019. E-mail submissions as a PDF or URL to <>. Please indicate on your submission if you wish to be considered for a travel stipend


Format: Proposals must include the full text (no more than 2000 words) and accompanying visualizations.
