Call for Papers: Digital Humanities – The Shifting Contexts
Digital Library Perspectives

This special edition of Digital Library Perspectives focuses on the topic of Digital Humanities, with emphasis on the shifting framework of scholars and practitioners who do not necessarily identify themselves digital humanists but use Digital Humanities tools and practices in their work.

The co-editors invite contributions on the following, as well as other related topics:

  *   Beyond “What is DH?” - exploring “Why DH?”

  *   Non-traditional DH practice and practitioners: inclusion and exclusion
