Debates in the Digital Humanities seeks to anthologize the best new work in the digital humanities (DH) each year. For Debates in the Digital Humanities 2015, we invite chapter-length contributions and extended blog posts to complement several confirmed essays, including writing by Steven E. Jones on the emergence of DH; Mark Marino on critical code studies; Domenico Fiormonte on DH in a global context; Jentery Sayers on remixing Debates in the Digital Humanities; Michael Hancher on DH and google books; Claire Warwick on social media identities; Dennis Tenen on DH tools; and Ethan Watrall on DH and archaeology.
Possible topics include, but are not limited to:
Scholars and practitioners from across the disciplines (regardless of rank, position, or institutional affiliation) are invited to submit 300-word abstracts on these or other topics by February 2nd, 2015 to the series editor, Matthew K. Gold (firstname.lastname@example.org) and associate editor, Lauren Klein (email@example.com). Collaboratively authored submissions are welcome. The Debates in the Digital Humanities editorial team will review all abstracts, and authors of selected abstracts will be invited to submit full manuscripts by April 1st, 2015. The volume will be published online in Fall 2015, and in print thereafter.
For the volume, contributions may ultimately assume the form of critical essays, case studies, or project assessments, among other options. The word count of the submissions may vary from 2000 to 8000 words, depending on the submission. The editorial team will consult with authors of selected abstracts about the word count of their contributions.
We also welcome nominations of important blog posts or other short-form pieces that address the above and related issues.
Debates in the Digital Humanities is a hybrid print/digital publication stream that explores new debates as they emerge. The call for contributions for the 2016 volume will be announced in November 2015.
