Call for Submissions
UO’s Second Annual
Data|Media|Digital Graduate Student Symposium
Fri Feb. 28, 2020
Proposal Submission Deadline: Thursday, December 12, 2019
We invite submissions for 15-minute presentations from UO graduate students on any aspect of Data/Media/Digital studies for a one-day symposium to be held on Friday, February 28, 2020. The second annual Data/Media/Digital Symposium will be held this year in the Knight Library’s DREAM Lab collaborative workspace. Presentations can be based on work in progress or on research and work in the final stages of development. Proposals should specify clear scholarly or pedagogical goals, and should articulate how the design or argument of a data/media/digital project might address those goals. Any kind of data studies, media studies, or digital studies project is welcome (if you aren’t sure if your project fits our call, then it probably does, but please get in touch and we can offer you our guidance).
This event will be an opportunity to showcase the exciting multi-disciplinary work being produced by graduate students across campus. We look forward to sustaining cross-disciplinary conversations and building inter-departmental community over the course of the day. To facilitate this goal, student participants are expected to attend the symposium for the full day (to the extent that their academic schedule allows). A/V services will be available in-room to all presenters. Coffee and catering will be provided throughout the day (as well as, contingent on available funds, a hosted lunch for all presenters).
Please send your submission to firstname.lastname@example.org by the end of day (11:59PM) on Thursday, December 12th (at the end of Exam Week during Fall Quarter). Submissions should include two documents (both as PDFs): a submission file and your CV. Your submission PDF must include: your name, your UO department or program, your presentation title, and a brief 250-to-500 word abstract (or executive summary) of your proposed presentation. Decisions about all submissions will be conveyed no later than Monday, January 6, 2020.
