CFP: Congress 2015 special issue of Digital Studies/Le champ numérique

The Canadian Society for Digital Humanities/Société canadienne des humanités numériques will be publishing a refereed selection of papers from the 2015 CSDH/SCHN ACH Joint Conference in Ottawa in Digital Studies/Le champ numérique. The issue will be co-edited by Jon Saklofske (Acadia, CSDH/SCHN), Susan Brown (University of Guelph/University of Alberta, CSDH/SCHN), and Padmini Ray Murray (Srishti Institute of Art, Design & Technology, ACH). Publication of accepted submissions is planned on a rolling basis and will be completed by April 30, 2016.

Submissions are invited from all participants who attended the meeting, including panels and digital demonstrations. Authors may supplement, expand on, or refine the material they presented at the conference. It is expected that most submissions will range from between 3000 to 6000 words (approx 10-20 pages), but there is no minimum or maximum length. Digital Studies/Le champ numérique is also always willing to consider generically unusual submissions.

  • September 15th : Submissions due
