Digital America: an online journal on digital culture and American life

Digital America is now accepting submissions for Issue No. 7. We are looking for critical essays, film, artwork, design, reviews, 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.

"Race, Politics, and the Humanities in an Age of 'Posts'" Special Issue June 1, 2016

updated: 
Tuesday, January 12, 2016 - 12:00pm
Humanities (an international, peer-reviewed, open access quarterly journal)

This Special Issue comes at a time when the humanities face conceptual, theoretical, and ethical challenges from within their own ranks, as post-racial and post-human discourses problematize or reject many of their foundational principles. The defining boundaries of both "race" and "human" have been radically called into question, challenging us to rethink classificatory systems that found hierarchical relationships between, for example, the "fully human" and sub-human or non-human others. What is at stake for the humanities in this presumably post-racial, post-human age, and, in particular, how are we to reimagine racial equality or human rights as sustainable political projects?
