Unbound: Call for Contributions

Digital Frontiers is proud to announce the launch of Unbound: A Journal of Digital Scholarship.

Unbound is a new journal by and for the Digital Frontiers community, hosted by the University of North Texas Libraries Journal Hosting Service. The journal invites examinations of the interstices of digital scholarship, broadly conceived, with an emphasis on digital cultural studies; critical digital humanities; libraries, archives, and museums; the interpretive social sciences; and socially engaged computational or quantitative methods.

Unbound publishes content on a rolling basis, in annual editions. The journal conducts open peer and editorial review, and publishes under a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial (CC BY-NC) license. We also publish Proceedings from the annual Digital Frontiers conference and related satellite events. Unbound welcomes work from scholars and professionals at all stages of professional development in all fields.

The Editors welcome submissions for our inaugural issue, to begin publication in Spring 2020. We invite works in the following categories:

  • Articles
  • Editorials
  • Reviews
  • Notes
  • Portfolios

Submit to Unbound

Deadline for #DF18KU Extended to 4/22

There’s still time to submit for Digital Frontiers 2018!

The theme for the 2018 Digital Frontiers/IDRH Conference is Finding Community in Digital Humanities. The Digital Frontiers Program Committee invites proposals exploring how we form or find community in digital scholarship. The planning committee practices intentional inclusion and encourages submissions from researchers, students, librarians archivists, genealogists, historians, information and technology professionals, and scientists. We welcome perspectives from all individuals and are interested in fostering a dialog of critical, self-reflexive DH invested in different vectors of identity and encourage research produced by or concerning vulnerable and marginalized communities, historically or contemporaneously. In keeping with our focus on communities, we encourage submissions on DH praxis grounded in and accountable to the needs and ethics of local communities.

Conference content may include:

  • Fully Constituted Panels
  • Individual Scholarly Papers or Presentations(Note: early stage research, project updates, and single-institution “case studies” should be submitted as posters)
  • Hands-On Workshops
  • Posters or Infographics
