I would like to call your attention to a new graduate student online
journal: gnovis. I am the managing editor and we are soliciting
papers for a special issue on all humanities topics. We're particularly interested in the intersection of humanities and computing. The journal is peer-reviewed

Culture & Technology. It is accessible at
http://gnovis.georgetown.edu. We are currently undergoing a website
redesign, so excuse any intermittent broken links.
