from the Digital Humanities Discussion Group (ALA):
I’m excited this morning to announce the launch of Unbound: A Journal of Digital Scholarship. Unbound publishes work that explores the interstices of digital scholarship, broadly conceived, with an emphasis on digital cultural studies; critical digital humanities; galleries, libraries, archives, and museums; the interpretive social sciences; and socially engaged computational or quantitative methods. This open access journal publishes editorials, essays, reviews, pedagogy and praxis notes (short form works on research in progress, single-institution case studies, and pedagogy), and new media art, music, and performance portfolios. We welcome submissions from scholars and professionals at all stages of professional development in all fields.
In addition to publishing original scholarship, Unbound is the venue for the proceedings of the Digital Frontiers conference, and related satellite events. The first issue features essays and abstracts from Realizing Resistance: An Interdisciplinary Conference on Star Wars, Episodes VII, VIII & IX, which took place May 2-4, 2019 at the University of North Texas.
I am joined on the Editorial Board by John Edward Martin (UNT), Leigh Bonds (Ohio State), Jenn Stayton (UNT), Kevin Jenkins (Penn State), Adetty Pérez de Miles (Texas State), Joshua Jackson (North Carolina State), and Brea Henson (UNT). The journal is published by Digital Frontiers and hosted by the University of North Texas Libraries.
The Call for Contributions is now open, and guidelines are also available for proposing special issues.
Please join me in celebrating this event, and please share the Call for Contributions generously.
With Warm Regards,
