Lexicon contributor Elisa Nury has kindly forwarded the following Call for Papers for a conference on Innovation and Sustainability in Digital Humanities that will take place on June 18, at King’s College London. It’s the first edition of the new Student-organized ‘DH Early Career Conference’, which I think is a great new initiative. You can find the original conference website here.
