An Update from #VHC15

So far, we have some truly outstanding panels already organized, including presenters from the Library of Congress, George Mason’s Roy Rosenzweig Center for History and New Media, the Smithsonian, the National Archives, the Institute of Museum and Library Services, Busboys and Poets, the Art in Transit project, James Madison University, the University of Mary Washington, Christopher Newport University, and our own Marymount–and more proposals are coming in every day! So far, we also have a rich range of disciplines and projects represented–and this is in addition to the keynote address and Bisson Lecturer, Steven Lubar, from Brown University. Here are some of the panel titles, just to whet your appetite:

  • Humanities Data on the Web: The IMLS Museum Universe Data File, Wikipedia, and the US Museums Explorer
  • American Memory at Twenty: Assessing an Online Public Humanities Legacy
  • Poetry in the Public Sphere: #Poetry Off the Page
  • Teaching Justice Through Storytelling: Uniting the Humanities and the Social Sciences in the Classroom
  • Literature, Race, and the Politics of Identity
  • Challenging Public (Mis)perceptions: Diverse Lessons from Humanities Students
  • Immigrant Alexandria, New Media, and the Public

We are still accepting proposals for individual presentations (deadline: January 30), and we hope you will join us and encourage your students to do the same.
