ILiADS Call for Proposals 2020:
Deadline April 3
The ILiADS Steering Committee welcomes proposals for the sixth annual Institute for Liberal Arts Digital Scholarship! This year’s Institute will take place July 19-24, 2020 at Macalester College in St. Paul, MN.
ILiADS offers a week-long intensive environment for collaborative project teams composed of some mix of researchers, librarians, technologists, and students to build upon established digital pedagogy or scholarship projects and/or launch new ones. To help get a new project started and/or clear hurdles, each team is assigned a Liaison expert to consult on the project and help connect them to other experts. The schedule for the retreat-like week includes focused team time supplemented by panels and talks designed around the cohort. This allows space for hands-on exploration and open inquiry and allows for the community to drive professional development throughout the week through responsive pop-up sessions and spontaneous collaborations. Over the course of the week, team members will learn more about their own collaboration and how to sustain their project into the future.
The steering committee encourages proposals from teams in whole or in part new to digital scholarship. Projects of all types, and in any stage, are welcomed, and projects which include or are led by undergraduates are especially encouraged.
As you prepare your submission, please follow the proposal guidelines. Examples of successful project proposals from the past are linked below. Please send a PDF with your completed proposal to firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday, April 3, 2020.
Please note: the ILiADS Steering Committee is actively formulating contingency plans related to COVID-19, should that become necessary. We are aware that the Coronavirus has the potential to impact participants’ travel plans and ability to attend ILiADS, and we are working with Macalester College leadership to institute a cancellation and refund policy. Specific details will be shared as soon as they are available. (Macalester’s COVID-19 site provides additional campus preparation details.)
