CFP: Teaching Digital Humanities: Principles, Practices, and Politics (Edited Collection)

Despite the importance of pedagogy to the development and long-term sustainability of digital humanities, very little scholarly literature has been published on the topic. The proposed volume, Teaching Digital Humanities, will address the need for critical discussion of pedagogical issues associated with the field.

Proposals for chapters that address any aspect of digital humanities and pedagogy are invited, including (but not limited to):

  • the politics and place of digital humanities in the academy;
  • digital humanities in the undergraduate/graduate curriculum;
  • innovative teaching methods and approaches to digital humanities;
  • theorizing the digital humanities classroom;
  • bridging the gap between digital humanities research and teaching;
  • new media, new technologies, new pedagogies;
  • digital humanities and open-access education; and
  • cultural and social issues associated with teaching digital humanities;

Discipline-specific (such as teaching digital history or digital literary studies) as well as non-specific topics are welcome.

Abstracts of no more than 500 words along with a brief biographical profile should be sent to Dr. Brett D. Hirsch (University of Western Australia) via email to brett.hirsch@gmail.com by 1st August 2010. Finished chapters of between 5,000 and 7,000 words in length will be commissioned and expected by February 2011. The collection will be subjected to rigorous peer review and scheduled for open-access online publication in 2011. The use of rich multimedia content is encouraged. Any queries are welcome.
