About DHNow

Digital Humanities Now aggregates and selects material from our list of subscribed feeds, drawing from hundreds of venues where high-quality digital humanities scholarship is likely to appear, including the personal websites of scholars, institutional sites, blogs, and other feeds. We also seek to discover new material by monitoring Twitter and other social media for stories discussed by the community, and by continuously scanning the broader web through generalized and specialized search engines. Scholarship—in whatever form—that drives the field of digital humanities field forward is highlighted in the Editors’ Choice column. In addition to these Editors' Choice pieces, Digital Humanities Now also aggregates news items of interest to the field, such as jobs, calls for papers, conference and funding announcements, reports, and recently-released resources. You can find a complete archive of every News and Editors' Choice item ever published by DHNow in our index.
