This lightning round invites historians working on digital projects to share their work in a series of three-minute presentations. With space for approximately 20 participants, this session is an excellent opportunity for scholars to get feedback on projects at any stage of development, hear about other types of projects and methods, and network with fellow digital historians.
The 2015, 2016, and 2017 rounds were successful in attracting a wide variety of projects and attendees both well versed in digital history and new to the field. Previous participants have included:
- Camille Bégin (Concordia Univ.), Mapping Foodways in a North American Diasporic City
- Daniel Franke (West Point), Medieval England Goes to War, 1344-47
- Roger L. Martinez (Univ. of Colorado), Virtual Plasencia: a Geovisual Recreation of the Medieval City of Plasencia, Spain
- Sarah Melton (Emory Univ.), OpenTourBuilder: The Battle for Atlanta
- Scott Nesbit (Univ. of Georgia), Mapping Occupation
- Jessica Mari Otis (Carnegie Mellon Univ.), Six Degrees of Francis Bacon

The 2018 round will invite abstracts later in the year.
