Digital Humanities Quarterly Journal
Faculty / Project Lead
Digital Humanities Quarterly is the world's leading open-access, peer reviewed journal of digital humanities. It is jointly published by the Alliance of Digital Humanities Organizations and the Association for Computers and the Humanities, and its editorial work is hosted at Northeastern University. It publishes articles on a wide range of topics in digital humanities, including special issues on topics such as minimal computing, race in digital humanities, film studies, and tools criticism (to name some recent topics). Articles are encoded in TEI/XML and published using an open-source publication system.
Organizational ability and written communication skills are important. Research interest in digital humanities would be very helpful. No prior experience with XML is required but you should be comfortable with learning new technical systems.
