CFP: ACLA 2016 Annual Meeting

The American Comparative Literature Association has a call for papers for the 2016 Annual Meeting, which will be held on March 17-20, 2016 at Harvard University. Specifically, there is a seminar over Public Humanities in a Digital Age. Suggested topics include:

-What, if any, is the connection between digital public humanities and the much-hyped “crisis” in the humanities writ large?
-How can humanities scholars employ digital tools to talk with different publics?
-How can emerging technologies help us better demonstrate the value of our work?
-How does the digital allow us be to publicly engaged? Should such engagement be a required element of graduate education and/or tenure?
-Does digital outreach preclude local impact?
-What tools for collaboration do have at hand, or do we need?
-How do new forms of technology enhance cross-cultural collaboration?
-And does anyone really care what we have to say anyway?

Submissions are due by midnight on September 23, 2015. The organizer of the seminar to which you are submitting your paper will review and provisionally accept or decline your submission by September 30. The ACLA Program Committee then reviews all seminar proposals and makes a final decision by November 15.
