Digital Humanities Now
Digital Humanities Now is an experimental, edited publication that highlights and distributes informally published digital humanities scholarship and resources from the open web. Since 2009, DHNow has been refining processes of aggregation, discovery, curation, and review to open and extend conversations about the digital humanities research and practice.
DHNow highlights scholarship—in whatever form—that drives the digital humanities field forward as Editors’ Choice.
Additional items of interest to the field—jobs, calls for papers, conference and funding announcements, reports, and recently-released resources—are redistributed as news.
DHNow is also an experiment in contemporary scholarly communication practices and a critical case study for PressForward, a research project at the Roy Rosenzweig Center for History and New Media at George Mason University. Our goal is to encourage scholars to share their research and learned expertise on the open web. Specifically, we are developing methodologies and technologies to facilitate the aggregation and curation of gray literature—scholarly work including white papers, presentations, research reports, essays, and other genres of work that may not otherwise have a formal venue for publication.
