Call for Papers: New Media and the Digital Humanities
Call for Papers Date:
The Journal of American Literature is pleased to announce a call for papers for a 2013 special issue on New Media and the Digital Humanities, edited by Wendy H. K. Chun, Patrick Jagoda, and Tara McPherson. Deadline March 31, 2012.
In addition to traditional essays, there is also the possibility of a companion Web site that would publish peer-reviewed multimodal pieces that use new media in their very form. If you are interested in submitting a more experimental piece, please contact the editors before submitting. Some production support may be available for these works, especially for work undertaken in the new authoring platform Scalar. Scalar is designed to make it easy for authors to write long-form scholarship online. The platform particularly facilitates work that engages visual materials. For more information about Scalar, please see
