Proposing a Special Volume

If you are interested in editing a special volume of Debates in the Digital Humanities (DDH), please email Lauren Klein ( and Matthew Gold ( with a paragraph or two about your idea and a few lines about your qualifications for editing a DDH volume. If the project aligns with the mission of the series (see below), we will get in touch to discuss next steps, including developing your idea into a more formal project proposal for the Press.

The Debates in the Digital Humanities series focuses on topics of pressing interest to the field of DH as they emerge. We publish original essays that advance arguments about key issues and/or that engage in current debates in the digital humanities. We do not publish case studies. Our readership is interdisciplinary and international, and volume themes must engage that broad audience. Our editorial teams are also intentionally inclusive, and we encourage teams of 2-3 people who bring diverse experiences and perspectives to their work. Potential editors who are still in the early stages of forming an editorial team are encouraged to consult with the series editors for feedback on the composition of their team.

To see the volumes we have published in the past, please visit the Debates in the Digital Humanities series page at the University of Minnesota Press website, or explore the volumes directly on Manifold.
