We invite you to submit your abstracts for talks, panels, posters, or workshops and to participate in the 5th Annual Polytechnic Summit that will be held June 5-7, 2013 at Wentworth Institute of Technology in Boston, MA. Please mark your calendars. For more information about the Summit, including abstract submissions and registration information, visit www.polytechnicsummit.
One of the themes in particular is the topic of Digital Humanities. This would be a good place to ignite more excitement this field for folks that may not know much about this.
The theme of the 2013 Summit “Bridging Boundaries” is an effort to explore how polytechnics are reaching across disciplines, across economic sectors, across town-gown lines, and across international borders to strengthen the quality of education they offer and the impact of faculty and student work.
The deadline for abstract submission is March 8, 2013. Suggested topics are below. Early submissions are encouraged. You will be notified by April 5, 2013 if your abstract has been accepted.
Professor Robert Lind and Professor Amanda Hattaway (friend and colleague of Ron Bernier, an active DH scholar that you may know!)
