Practitioners from across the disciplines (regardless of rank, position, or whether they are affiliated with an academic institution) are invited to submit 300-word abstracts by 3 April 2015 to Jentery Sayers at email@example.com.
Collaboratively authored submissions are especially 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 15 June 2015, with peer-to-peer review occurring during July 2015. The volume will be published, in print and online, in 2016.
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.
If you have any questions about Making Humanities Matter or this CFP, then please email Jentery Sayers at firstname.lastname@example.org. Sayers is Assistant Professor of English and Cultural, Social, and Political Thought, as well as Director of the Maker Lab in the Humanities, at the University of Victoria.
