CFP: Calling for Proposals to Host Day of DH in 2017 and 2018

A Day in the Life of the Digital Humanities (Day of DH) is an open community initiative sponsored by centerNet that each year brings together scholars interested in the digital humanities from around the world to document what they do on one day. The goal is to create a website that weaves together a picture of the participants’ activities on the day and which answers the question, ‘Just what do digital humanists really do?’ Participants document their day through photographs and text, all of which is published on a community online platform, forming a record of the day.
