The 94th Annual Meeting of the Medieval Academy will be held in Philadelphia on the University of Pennsylvania campus from March 7-9, 2019. The overall theme of the conference is “The Global Turn in Medieval Studies.” As a co-chair of the organizing committee, I would especially like to invite members of the dm- list to propose papers or sessions relating to the thread “Digitizing the Global Middle Ages: Practices, Sustainability, and Ethics.” While this thread can be broadly interpreted, our aim is to further conversations on the role and value of digitization in the preservation of our shared cultural heritage and on the practices and ethics of digitizing across cultural and geographic boundaries.

If you are interested in submitting a proposal, please consult the CFP, available here:

Individuals or groups may propose a poster, paper, full session, roundtable or workshop. Membership in the Medieval Academy is required to present at the conference, but special consideration will be given to individuals whose fields would not traditionally involve membership in the Medieval Academy. Proposals are due June 15, 2018.

Please feel free to distribute this announcement to other lists that may have interested members.

And please don’t hesitate to contact me or any member of the organizing committee (names appear on CFP) if you have questions.
