How have new technologies transformed literary and cultural histories? How do they enable critical practices of scholars working in and outside of digital humanities? Have decades of digital studies enhanced, altered, or muted the project to recover and represent more diverse histories of writers, thinkers, and artists positioned differently by gender, race, ethnicity, sexualities, social class and/or global location?

Digital Philology: A Journal of Medieval Cultures
/Digital Philology/ is a peer-reviewed journal devoted to the study of medieval vernacular texts and cultures. Founded by Stephen G. Nichols and Nadia R. Altschul, the journal aims to foster scholarship that crosses disciplines upsetting traditional fields of study, national boundaries, and periodizations. /Digital Philology/ also encourages both applied and theoretical research that engages with the digital humanities and shows why and how digital resources require new questions, new approaches, and yield radical results.

Diffractions – Graduate Journal for the Study of Culture
POPPING THE QUESTION: THE QUESTION OF POPULAR CULTURE
Deadline for article submissions: December 31, 2014
As a concept, the popular – or popular culture for that matter – has never ceased to be debatable and ambivalent. Although it has come to occupy a particular place under the spotlight over the past decades within the broad study of culture, such apparently privileged position has not deprived it of the manifold ambiguities, complexities or misconceptions that have often involved its general understanding (John Storey, 2012; Angela McRobbie, 1994; Andrew Ross, 1989; John Fiske, 1989).

In the last two decades we have seen a proliferation of what scholars like Wolfgang Hallet, Alison Gibbons, and others have called "multimodal literature." These texts, which include Mark Danielewski's House of Leaves, Steve Tomasula's VAS: An Opera in Flatland, Anne Carson's NOX, Jonathan Safran Foer's Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close, and Doug Dorst and JJ Abrams' S, among others, engage the verbal dimensions of narrative communication while incorporating modalities that have been conventionally omitted in genres like the literary novel and even poetry.
