Digital America is now accepting submissions for Issue No. 5. We are looking for critical essays, film, artwork, design, and process pieces that question, analyze, and/or hack the tools of digital culture. We are also interested in work that explores how new behaviors and new global networks of power and influence are shaping American life. All submissions should engage American life and digital culture and/or digitization in some way. We encourage creative responses to these parameters as we understand the complexities of engaging "America" in a global, networked world.
