DH and Media Studies Crossovers/
Collaborations/Interdisciplinary Explorations

Edited by Melanie E S Kohnen  and Leah Shafer

Media studies and Digital Humanities (DH) work share a range of intersecting concerns. Recent discipline-wide discussions in Flow and Media Commons, as well as at the SCMS and MLA conferences, have emphasized the crossovers between the two. For this issue of the Cinema Journal Teaching Dossier, we seek contributions that bring this discussion into the classroom. How do the concerns of DH work, with its emphases on innovative scholarly architectures, multimedia components, and cross-disciplinary hybridity, speak to evolving trends in media studies pedagogy? What kinds of pedagogical practices engage and capitalize on DH’s emphases on praxis and design? How can media studies practice model and promote a productive collaboration around computing in the humanities?

Possible areas of engagement/intervention include:

* co-teaching DH courses with faculty from outside the media studies discipline

* information and computer literacy through a media studies lens

* engaging critical making and computational thinking

* developing digital resources for cross-disciplinary curricula

* data-driven course design

* hacking in media studies courses

* using/designing/imagining DH tools for media studies archival research

* engaging existing media-related DH resources for assignment design (cinemetrics, timeline of historical film color, manyeyes, tableau, &tc)

* media studies students, mapping & GIS data

* digital sustainability as a foundational praxis for curriculum design

* research processes that foreground open access work

* experiments with multimedia publication

* reverse engineering the classroom

Submit a 250-word abstract for a proposed 1500-word essay, briefly describing the essay topic, and a 150-word biography to Melanie E S Kohnen (mek8 at nyu.edu<mailto:mek8 at nyu.edu>) and Leah Shafer (shafer at hws.edu<mailto:shafer at hws.edu>) by July 17.
