As we wrap up Fall 2015 and look to the New Year, we’re issuing another call for volunteers to help us choose the pieces that we feature on Digital Humanities Now. Editors-at-Large can see all the work and announcements published each week on the more than 475 websites that Digital Humanities Now follows. Volunteering a few hours in a given week provides access to a snapshot of the field, as well as experience with the PressForward plugin. For graduate students training in digital humanities, this is an opportunity to see what’s happening in DH. For instructors advising or teaching courses in DH, assigning students to be Editors-at-Large can offer a dynamic way of including current and developing scholarship in course discussions.
Editors-at-Large sign up for weekly rotations to review the pieces produced or shared by the digital humanities community and nominate the most important scholarly work and news items the weekly DHNow Editor-in-Chief will feature on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Weekly rotations run from Sunday through Saturday. At the end of your week’s rotation, we will invite you to give us feedback, both on the pieces that you found for the week and on the nominating process itself.
In early 2016 we will be implementing a new user registration and volunteer sign-up process. We aren’t yet ready to ask users to participate in this new process but, in the meantime, you can still sign up for Spring 2016! Users who sign up now can do so using our current google form. Once we launch our new process we’ll migrate your account to the new system and send you instructions on how to edit, view, or add new volunteer dates.
Contact us with any questions, and we hope to see you at DHNow!
