Which like a fountain with a hundred spouts
did run pure blood: and many lusty Romans
Came smiling and did bathe their hands in it." (2.2.76-79)

Journal for Early Modern Cultural Studies: Special Issue on the Early Modern Digital (due 15 Jan 2013)

It is well understood that "the digital turn" has transformed the contemporary cultural, political and economic environment. Less appreciated perhaps is its crucial importance and transformative potential for those of us who study the past. Whether through newly—and differently—accessible data and methods (e.g. "distant reading"), new questions being asked of that new data, or recognizing how digital reading changes our access to the materiality of the past, the digital humanities engenders a particularized set of questions and concerns for those of us who study the early modern, broadly defined (mid-15th to mid-19th centuries).

NEW FIELDS OF PLAY: ENACTMENTS OF CRITICISM (Jan 2, 2013)

NEW FIELDS OF PLAY

The editors of NEW FEILDS OF PLAY: ENACTMENTS IN CRITICISM invite submissions for its inaugural issue, Fall 2013. New Fields of Play will feature original works of criticism in a variety of forms, including sound recording, visual art, video, text, and hybrids thereof, that enact as well as argue their interpretive, analytical, and/or critical claims. The editors are particularly eager to review trans-disciplinary works that engage audiences beyond the institutional academic on topics related to performance, drama, theater, performativity and enactive criticism (including stand-up, new/interactive media, role-playing, visual culture) and that do so in ways that push the boundaries of traditional academic publication.

Crossing Boundaries, Revealing Connections: Experiments in Interdisciplinary Studies

Battleground States Conference

Bowling Green State University Presents the 8th Annual Battleground States Conference
Title: Crossing Boundaries, Revealing Connections: Experiments in Interdisciplinary Studies
February 22nd – 24th 2013

Culture is mercurial and fluid. Thus research must create, but also dispute yet engage, a transformational and reflective understanding of our subjects. The examination of knowledge and epistemologies from varying perspectives reveals the interconnections of vastly varying subjects. But to find these connections we first need to explore and experiment.
