When the American scholars Jeffrey Schnapp and Todd Presner launched  
their influential and controversial -Digital Humanities Manifesto' in  
2009, it heralded a new age in the humanities. In 2011, Europe  
published a -Manifest for the Digital Humanities', which was developed  
during the ThatCamp conference in France. Despite their rhetorical,  
instrumental, and transatlantic differences, it was clear that  
digitization had entered the realm of the humanities for good. Due to  
the technological improvements and far-reaching possibilities  
presented by the internet, digitization fundamentally challenged and  
altered the ways in which we organize our universities, create new  
institutional models, and ultimately how we think about and perform  
basic humanities research.

From its inception, however, the term 'digital humanities' has been a  
hypernym covering several factions and methodological and theoretical  
approaches. It thus remains widely debated and constantly negotiated.  
In addition, discussion as to whether digital humanities is or should  
be regarded as autonomous or whether it should interact or interrelate  
with the traditional humanities has been a constant source of conflict  
between different - and often ideological - discourses.

MedieKultur welcomes both theoretical and empirical articles on the  
current and future versions, perspectives, and/or problems of digital  
humanities. Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

- What have we learned from the digital humanities so far?
- What is the future of the digital humanities?
- How does the digital influence research practice in the humanities?  
as source, as method, as tool, and as means of enforced communication?
- What new questions and approaches does the digital enable within the  
- How do archival means of collecting and making available digital  
data affect the scholarly use of this data within the humanities?
- How do the digital and the non-digital differ, and how can new  
constellations of the digital and the non-digital within the  
humanities be conceptualized?
- In what way does the digital humanities represent a  
national-regional or universal vision?
- How can new digital infrastructures be incorporated into and  
implemented on the institutional level?
