Call for Participation – Digital Medieval Studies Institute (DMSI) 2023

  1. Call for Participation:

Digital Medieval Studies Institute (DMSI) 2023

Call for participation

In cooperation with  NYU Abu Dhabi and NYU DC, the Medieval Academy of America will sponsor a one-day, pre-conference workshop in digital scholarly methods before their annual meeting in February 2023 ( The event is tailored especially to medievalists, their sources and their scholarly concerns and will feature established approaches in digital medieval studies.

There are two ways to participate in DMSI 2023.

First, five separate day-long workshops will be offered accompanied by two sessions of lightning talks.

Second, participants can give a short presentation (lightning talk) about any project in digital medieval studies they have been involved in; the topic of a short presentation does not have to be the same as the workshop in which the participant enrolls. Participants will be able to present a lightning talk only if they are accepted to attend the full-day workshop.

All may apply, but preference will be given to applicants who illustrate the ability to apply what they have learned in their research, teaching, or professional practice.  A maximum of 8-10 participants will be accepted into each workshop. It will only be possible to enroll in one workshop. We are offering a small bursary for five participants (one per class) to waive the $100 participation fee; the bursary is needs-based.
