Today, we have the pleasure to announce the schedule of the Digital Orientalist’s Digital Orientalisms Twitter Conference 2020 (#DOsTC2020) which will take place on June 20th, 2020. All times are given in Universal Coordinated Time +1 (UTC+1, alternatively known as British Summer Time, BST) in the first instance and are followed by Japan Standard Time (in red) and Eastern Standard Time (in blue) in parentheses.
It is important to note that whilst we will try to stick to this schedule there is a likelihood that some speakers may run into technological difficulties given the nature of the conference and its use of Twitter as a platform, as such the schedule should be viewed as a general guide to the day’s proceedings.
