        Subject: CFP for Mandala Browser Collection

Dear colleagues,

The Mandala Browser is a sophisticated visualization interface designed specifically for digital humanities scholarship. Originally conceived as a tool for literary and historical scholars working on hypothesis formulation involving primary materials encoded in XML, the Mandala Browser is a rich-prospect interface tool – visually representing all items in a collection – that allows users to create sophisticated Boolean queries through an iterative process. One of the most innovative aspects of the Mandala Browser is the way it visually represents the interaction between search results from multiple queries.

We invite proposals for a collection of essays entitled Using the Mandala Browser for Algorithmic Criticism. Essays should demonstrate a use of the Mandala Browser for qualitative or quantitative research (the Mandala need not be the only tool used and described in the essay, but it should represent a significant portion of the work).

For further details or to submit a statement of intent (about 200 words), please contact the editors, Teresa Dobson or Stéfan Sinclair.

Short statements of intent are due by June 15, 2012 (full article drafts for accepted proposals will be end of December 31, 2012).
