    The deadline for submitting papers to the inaugural conference of the Association for Computers and the Humanities (ACH) is coming up on Saturday, November 10th. Have you submitted an abstract yet?

    The conference will take place in Pittsburgh, PA, July 23-26, 2019 at the Pittsburgh Marriott City Center.

    ACH is the United States-based constituent organization in the Alliance for Digital Humanities Organizations (ADHO). The ACH 2019 conference, in partnership with Keystone DH, provides a forum for conversations on an expansive definition of digital humanities in a broad array of subject areas, methods, and communities of practice.

    ACH recognizes that this work is inherently and inextricably sociopolitical, and thus additionally, but not exclusively, welcomes scholarship that emphasizes social justice through the use of computers and related technologies in the study of humanistic subjects.

    Areas of engagement include but are not limited to:

    • Computational and digital approaches to research and pedagogy;
    • 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.

    We particularly invite proposals on anti-racist, queer, postcolonial and decolonial, indigenous, Black studies, cultural and critical ethnic studies, and intersectional feminist interventions in digital studies.
    As an organization committed to cross-disciplinary engagement, we welcome 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.

    The conference organizers are interested in proposals for a number of formats, including: workshops, papers, panels, roundtables, lightning talks, posters, and installations and performances.

    We look forward to your contributions, and to seeing you in Pittsburgh!
