NANO: New American Notes Online
Call for Papers: Issue 5
Special Theme: Digital Humanities, Public Humanities
Deadline: 1 October 2013
Scholars, artists, and new media practitioners—including Sharon Daniel, Erik Loyer, Alex Juhasz, Liz Losh, Tara McPherson, Kathleen Woodward, Sarah Elwood, Margaret Rhee, Kim Christen, and Alan Liu—have recently investigated the intersections of digital methods with cultural criticism, demonstrating how investments in technologies and computation are not necessarily antithetical to investments in critical theory and social justice. Building on these investments, this special issue of NANO (http://www.nanocrit.com/) asks how, when, and for whom digital humanities is also public humanities, with particular attention to project-based research. For instance:
● Which digital humanities projects are currently engaging contemporary politics and social exclusion, under what assumptions, and through what mechanisms?
● How are these projects articulating relationships with their publics and community partners, and through what platforms and forms of collaboration?
● How are public humanities projects being preserved, circulated, and exhibited through digital methods? By whom? Using what protocols and technologies?
● Does public humanities have “data”? If so, then how is that data defined or structured? If not, then what are some concerns about data-driven research?
● What might the histories of digital humanities (however defined) learn from social justice activism, participatory research, context provision, and witnessing?
● How are building, making, or coding activities embedded in social justice initiatives?
Across text, image, audio, and video, authors are invited to individually or collaboratively submit notes or brief "reports" detailing projects that work across digital and public humanities, including projects that do not identify with either term.
For the issue, a "report" implies a submission that, at a minimum:
● Focuses on an existing project, which is in development or already live;
● Provides screengrabs, screencasts, or snapshots of that project and (where possible) treats them as evidence for an argument about the project;
● Intersects questions of computation and technology with questions of culture and social justice; and
● Articulates a narrative for the project, including (where applicable) its workflows, motivations, interventions, management, and partners.
Invited by NANO, the editor of this special issue is the Maker Lab in the Humanities at the University of Victoria, including Adèle Barclay, Nina Belojevic, Alex Christie, Jana Millar Usiskin, Stephen Ross, Jentery Sayers, and Katie Tanigawa.
SUBMISSION GUIDELINES: For this special issue, we are accepting submissions across text, image, video, and audio. All submissions should be submitted to both maker and editor.nanocrit by 11:59pm on 1 October 2013 in your time zone. The body of the email should include your name(s), your affiliation(s), the title of the submission, five keywords describing the submission, and media type(s) and format(s) for the submission. Where possible, the submissions should be attached to the email. Should a submission exceed the email attachment limit, then the body of the email should also include a URL for the submission. The URL should not be discoverable on the web (e.g., it should be behind a passcode-protected wall, in a private cyberlocker, or not visible by search engines). Do not include your name(s) in any file name. Your name(s) should only be included in the body of your email.
If your submission is in text, then it should not exceed 3500 words (DOC(X)s and RTFs are preferred). Up to 15 high-resolution (at least 600 dpi) images are permitted (JPEGs are preferred) per submission. Video submissions should be 3 to 10 minutes in duration (MOVs and MP4s are preferred; minimum resolution: 426 x 400; maximum resolution: 1920 x 1080). Audio essays should also be 3 to 10 minutes in duration (MP3s and WAVs are preferred, encoded at 256 kbit/s or higher). Both audio and video can also be embedded in any text submission (no more than 5 instances of embedded media per submission).

Last night I saw a presentation by Dr Mark Eyles. It was part of a meeting of the Hampshire Unity3D/3D Interactive Group (H3DG), a groups which started up just as I was beginning my studies, so I've sort of fallen into it. Its a great little get together, about once a month at The Point in Eastleigh. Part of the evening consists of a tutorial demonstrating how easy the…
