    Ithaca College will host a conference on the use of technology in the
    humanities on May 24-26, 2004, in Ithaca, New York. We are actively
    soliciting proposals for individual papers and conference sessions on
    any topic concerning the theory and application of technology in a
    humanities educational context.

    Conference Premise:
    The widespread use of digital technology has exerted a profound
    influence upon the humanities. Beyond the practical aspects of using
    technology effectively, humanities teachers and scholars also grapple
    with the ideological and imaginative complexities it has made possible.
    This conference will be an opportunity to present and discuss new ideas
    on technological practice and pedagogy in specific humanities
    disciplines, as well as the broader issues of the effect of technology
    upon teaching and research.

    Key Questions/Suggested Topics:
    * How does digital technology, in all of its various forms, enhance or
    detract from the humanities educational experience?
    * Does technology expand the reach and appeal of humanities
    disciplines, or does it obscure the core values of those disciplines?
    * What is the role of technology in redefining the faculty-student
    * Have the nature and practices of various humanities disciplines
    changed under the influence of technology?
    * How is technology facilitating cross-disciplinary and
    interdisciplinary teaching and learning?
    * What technology applications for learning and teaching are being used?
    * How does technology influence curricular change in humanities
    * What are the unique dynamics of using technology in the humanities
    * How are technology facilities being developed for use by the
    * What are the faculty development issues for technology in the
    * How are institutions assessing results and outcomes in the use of
    * Case studies and initiatives from individual disciplines or schools.

    technology in the humanities, to be submitted no later than December 15,
