MLA Workshop: Get Started in Digital Humanities with Help from DHCommons
Thursday, 3 January 2013, 8:30am-12:30pm

At the 2012 MLA, conference attendees packed many sessions on the digital humanities (DH), reflecting the growing interest in this domain. Yet many newcomers to digital humanities lack opportunities to connect with the DH community, get help from experienced practitioners with conceptualizing and launching a project, or begin building the skills they need to realize their projects. This four-hour preconvention workshop welcomes language and literature scholars who wish to learn about, start, or join digital scholarly projects for research and/or teaching.

Virtual Wildernesses: Ecocritical Explorations of Wildness in Gameworlds

Despite the rapid increase in the popularity of gaming in the last decade, there has been little ecocritical consideration of how virtual worlds fit into the ecosystem that supports our increasingly hybridized experience of reality. Thus, the intent of this collection is to (re)consider the virtual spaces of gameworlds as a new kind of wilderness and players as a new kind of explorer.
