We join conference hosts University of Texas at Arlington, including the College of Liberal Arts, UTA Libraries, and Departments of English, Linguistics, History, and Art and Art History as sponsors of the second annual conference of the Texas Digital Humanities Consortium (TxDHC). The conference will take place April 9-11, 2015 at the University of Texas at Arlington, and will include a Hackfest along with a variety of presenters. The conference features keynote speakers Alan Liu (University of California, Santa Barbara), Adeline Koh (Richard Stockton College), and George Siemens (UT-Arlington).

TxDHC is an organization of Digital Humanities Initiatives, Centers, and Institutes in the State of Texas. Their mission is to promote digital research in the humanities disciplines and facilitate interaction amongst researchers working in the digital humanities both within the state, nationally, and internationally. The consortium was organized in 2013, with University of Houston, Rice, Texas A&M University, University of Texas at Austin, University of North Texas, and the University of Texas at Arlington as founding members. The first Texas Digital Humanities Conference was held in 2014 at the University of Houston.

The call for proposals is open through January 27, 2015.
