Digital history stream at AHA annual conference in July

This year the annual conference of the Australian Historical Association will include a digital history stream, sponsored by the Australian Research Data Commons (ARDC), and convened by me!

The call for papers is available here or through the Conference website. The list of possible topics is deliberately broad and inclusive – if you’re using digital tools or methods in the organisation, analysis, and visualisation of historical data we’d love to hear from you. Proposals are due on 23 February 4 March and can be submitted through the Conference website.

We’re particularly keen for HDR and ECR scholars to be involved. To help meet registration and travel costs, the ARDC is funding up to four $1000 bursaries. More details are available here. Bursary applications close on 31 March.

There’s also likely to be a digital history workshop, as well as updates on the work of the HASS & Indigenous Research Data Commons and ARDC Community Data Lab, including the Trove Data Guide.

Time is short! Get your proposals in now! Contact me at tim@timsherratt.au if you have any questions.
