The goal is to create a space wherein concepts that seem to linger at the edge of the digital humanities like race, gender, power, and disability may be explored in light of the new methods and perspectives that the application of digital tools furnish. Potential paper topics may include but are not limited to:

deadline for submissions: 
Monday, March 20, 2017

In recent decades there has been a gradual yet dramatic shift in the means by which scholars engage with literary archives, as the widespread digitization of manuscript texts and the comprehensive shift to digital research tools has changed the nature of scholarly routes into archival material. There has also been a simultaneous shift within archives themselves, as the increasing prevalence of born-digital works necessitates radical changes in methods of curation and preservation.

There are strong indications that a significant transformation is underway in the so-called “Humanities.”  After a period of intense crisis and uncertainty, in which the human sciences have frequently sought to mirror or approach the hard sciences, the beginning of the twenty-first century seems to witness a broad renewal of disciplines, approaches and methodologies. From the questioning of its traditional foundations, the Humanities are reinventing themselves by a broad reconfiguration of its borders and even of the notion of “humanity” that served as its cornerstone.

At the 2005 annual meeting of the Conference on College Composition and Communication, Gregory L. Ulmer reminded conference-goers of the importance of understanding our relationships to writing and print, the apparatus from which our identities, perspectives, theories and practices emerge.  Over the course of thirty years and eight books, Ulmer has called for us not only to be aware of the emerging apparatus he dubbed “electracy” but also to help invent and shape it.

Wednesday, May 31, 2017

The intervention of digitalism and the new media into “a whole way of life” (Williams 1960) has had a significant effect on human emotions and the ways we express and experience feelings in daily interaction. Changes in communication patterns have gestated new manners of conduct, visible in phenomena such as virtual love, cyber touching or digital kissing [the latter carried out by means of emojis or, more recently, with the use of KISSENGER – a real-time internet kiss interface for mobiles to be introduced to mass markets in two years or so (Zhang, Nishiguchi, Cheok, Morisawa 2016)].
