Call for Participation: CUNY DHI Lightning Talks 2021 – CUNY Digital Humanities Initiative

Interested in digital humanities at CUNY? Have a project to share? Sign up to present your digital humanities project, research, or questions with students, faculty, and staff from across CUNY’s campuses.

What: 7th Annual CUNY Digital Humanities Initiative Lightning Talks

When: Friday, November 19, 2021

Time: 4:30 to 6:00 PM

Where: Zoom (link will be sent by email to registered participants)

How to participate: Synchronous and asynchronous options available

Lightning talks are informal, 3-minute / 3-slide presentations that offer a brief insight into your ongoing digital humanities project, research, or question. The audience includes a diverse community of engaged CUNY colleagues who are eager to hear about your project. You will have the option to either: 1) submit your slides and present live over Zoom or 2) send in a recording of your presentation. We encourage those who cannot attend the meeting to participate asynchronously by choosing the latter option. Slides will be made available after the event on our CUNY DHI blog.

We welcome first-time presenters, as well as those who have participated in past CUNY DHI Lightning Talks. Learn more about some projects and past presentations on the CUNY DHI website.

Following presentations, participants and attendees will have an opportunity to socialize and ask questions in breakout groups.

This event is free and open to all CUNY students, faculty, and staff. You are not required to present to participate, but an RSVP (using your CUNY email) is necessary in order to receive the Zoom link for the event. Sign up to present or attend using this form by Friday, November 12.
