Volunteer to Become an Editor-at-Large

As the spring semester draws to a close, we’re issuing the call for volunteers to help us choose the pieces that we feature on Digital Humanities Now over the summer. Editors-at-Large see all the work and announcements published each week on the more than 400 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 Saturday through Friday. 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.

For those interested in volunteering, please visit our Editors-at-Large corner to register for an account or, if you already have an account, login to volunteer for additional dates. Contact us with any questions, and we hope to see at DHNow!
