Digital Americanists Panel at ALA 2018
The Digital Americanists Society solicits abstracts (c. 250 words) for papers to be included in the Society’s pre-arranged session at the 2018 American Literature Association Conference (San Francisco, May 24-27, 2018).
We are especially interested in submissions focusing on data-sets, texts, archives, tools or projects/methodologies that deal with intersections of gender, race, sexuality, nationality, and/or disability in literature and digital work. Submissions focusing on texts from any period of American literature are welcome.
How We Make Deadline for submissions: December 1, 2017 full name / name of organization: Trace Journal - Special Issue
Trace: Journal of Writing, Media, Ecology is an online, refereed, open-access journal that publishes interdisciplinary research at the intersections of writing studies, media studies, cultural studies, and ecocriticism. We welcome scholarship about digital technology, art, literature, maker culture, rhetoric, composition, environments, and writing. Trace considers the ethical and material impact of technology, and encourages submissions in a variety of media that “trace” connections across and within various ecologies.
As culturally-significant artifacts, games have garnered an increasing amount of attention from academia as well as business, marketing, and other industries once considered outside the realm of entertainment. Study of play, now out of its infancy, is likewise enjoying increased clout in industries looking to use this research to motivate, instruct, and develop new work. At this stage of maturity, discussions between and within the densely overlapping game development and studies disciplines have largely been limited to traditional forms of textual and verbal discourse, but that need not continue to be the case.

AMERICA ONLINE: (WEB)SITE-SPECIFIC PERFORMANCE
A potential Multidisciplinary Panel for
Performance Studies Focus Group and American Theatre and Drama Society
Taking this year’s Modernist Studies Association theme of “Graphic Modernism” in a slightly different direction intimated in the title, this panel features graphical analyses of modernism based in a Digital Humanities methodology. One definition for “graphical” is “of or pertaining to a graph,” to data plotted and coordinates mapped. This panel will feature quantitative analyses of modernist culture in an effort to visualize what Raymond Williams might call a “sociology of culture,” the wide-ranging social practices that make culture possible but which are often obscured by the objects themselves.
