TxDHC Mini-Conference

Texas Digital Humanities Consortium

In partnership with the Texas Digital Library, the Texas Digital Humanities Consortium (TxDHC) is pleased to announce its mini-conference, which will immediately follow the 2016 Texas Conference on Digital Libraries. The event will take place on Friday, May 27, 2016 at the Commons Learning Center on the J.J. Pickle Research Campus in Austin, Texas. 

TxDHC Mini-Conference (and TCDL) Program

This post-conference event aims to accomplish two goals:

  • enable digital humanists from Texas and surrounding areas to present recent research
  • provide a forum for rich discussion about questions significant to digital humanities

Thus this conference will combine the openness and participatory spirit of unconferences such as THATCamps with the presentation opportunities provided by more formal conferences. Each session will feature a speaker or team of speakers presenting their research for 15 minutes, followed by discussion or hands-on experimentation.

Registration is limited to approximately 50 participants.

The Texas Digital Humanities Consortium encourages its members to attend both TCDL and the TXDHC mini-conference.

Registration Fees

(Registration is now closed.)


The TxDHC Mini-Conference is co-sponsored by the Initiative for Digital Humanities, Media, and Culture (IDHMC) of Texas A&M University.
