Digital Frontiers 2012

The first Digital Frontiers conference was held September 20-22, 2012 at the University of North Texas. The original logo was designed by Antonia Mondragon-Becker, then a student designer in the UNT Libraries External Relations department.

The conference was supported by the Portal to Texas History and the Texas State Historical Association, and was originally conceived around scholarship generated out of the Portal. Once the CFP was released, however, the scope of the conference quickly outgrew that original premise, laying the foundations for the diverse community that sustains DF today.
