Digital Humanities at Michigan State University is proud to continue its 
symposium series on Global DH into its second year. Digital humanities 
scholarship continues to be driven by work at the intersections of of a 
range of distinct disciplines and an ethical commitment to preserve and 
broaden access to cultural materials. The most engaged global DH 
scholarship, that which MSU champions 
<http://cplong.org/2016/10/critical-diversity-in-a-digital-age/>, values 
digital tools that enhance the capacity of scholarly critique to reflect 
a broad range of literary, historical, new media, and cultural 
positions, and diverse ways of valuing cultural production and knowledge 
work. Particularly valuable are strategies in which the digital form 
expresses a critique of the digital content and the position of the 
researcher to their material.

With the growth of the digital humanities, particularly in 
under-resourced and underrepresented areas, a number of complex issues 
surface, including, among others, questions of ownership, cultural 
theft, virtual exploitation, digital rights, and the digital divide. We 
view the 2017 symposium as an opportunity to broaden the conversation 
about these issues. Scholarship that works across borders with foci on 
transnational partnerships and globally accessible data is especially 
welcome.

Michigan State University has beenintentionally global 
<http://www.isp.msu.edu/about/about-isp/>for more than 60 years, with 
over 1,400 faculty involved in international research, teaching, and 
service. For the past 20 years, MSU has developed a strong research area 
in culturally engaged, global digital humanities.Matrix 
<http://www2.matrix.msu.edu/>, a digital humanities and social science 
center at MSU, has done dozens of digital projects inWest and Southern 
Africa 
<http://www2.matrix.msu.edu/portfolio_categories/africa-related-projects/>that 
have focused on ethical and reciprocal relationships, and capacity 
building. WIDE <http://wide.msu.edu/>has set best practices for doing 
community engaged, international, archival work with the Samaritan 
Collections,Archive 2.0 
<http://www2.matrix.msu.edu/portfolio-item/samaritan-archive-2-0/>. 
Today many scholars in the humanities at MSU are engaged in digital 
projects relating to global, indigenous, and/or underrepresented groups 
and topics.

This symposium, which will include a mixture of presentation types, 
welcomes 300-word proposals related to any of these issues, and 
particularly on the following themes and topics by Friday, December 9,
