The Critical Digital Humanities International Conference is organized by the Critical Digital Humanities Initiative (CDHI), University of Toronto. The conference will be hybrid, with virtual events on Friday September 30th and in-person events on Saturday October 1st. Session types include paper panels, roundtable discussions, workshops, lightning sessions and posters.

This year’s Critical Digital Humanities International Conference foregrounds critical DH research, praxis, and community partnerships. Critical DH is an intersectional field that emphasizes questions of power, social justice, and critical theory in making, analyzing, and using digital technologies. This is a version of digital humanities that places anti-racist, de/anti/postcolonial, feminist, and queer/trans/non-binary work at its core, and which understands our current shift in digital technology as an opportunity for social and political transformation. Critical DH foregrounds creative praxis, co-creation, public engagement, and community-based research.

Confirmed keynote speakers include Jennifer Wemigwans, President of Invert Media and Assistant Professor, University of Toronto; Wendy Hui Kyong Chun, Canada 150 Research Chair in New Media Studies, Simon Fraser University; and Lisa Nakamura, Gwendolyn Calvert Baker Collegiate Professor, University of Michigan.

The Critical Digital Humanities Initiative (CDHI) at the University of Toronto cordially invites submissions to our 2022 international conference, to take place Friday, September 30 and Saturday, October 1, 2022. Download the Call for Papers.
