Dear all,

Please consider the following cfp for a special issue of The CEA Critic on digital humanities pedagogy.

CFP: Special Issue of The CEA Critic, Spring 2014
Digital Humanities Pedagogy
Guest Editors: Leigh Bonds and Luke Iantorno
As “digital humanities” becomes more prevalent in English course syllabi, faculty and instructors are seeking new ways to teach undergraduates to consider the decisions editors and other scholars make when transforming cultural, historical, and literary texts into digital form. This special issue of The CEA Criticon digital humanities pedagogy will be a resource for those interested in incorporating DH instruction into their own English classes.
We are seeking proposals that move beyond DH theory to the practical application. Proposed articles should address the practical pedagogical approaches that introduce undergraduates to digital humanities:
•       transcribing, metadata writing, annotating, and basic TEI coding in conjunction with a startup or established digitization project
•       datamining: creating narratives of digital texts based on searched terms or defining search terms for future researchers
•       using digital editions to teach students paratextual influence
•       analyzing and evaluating the vitality of and scholarly rigor within digital editions with ancillary editorial apparatuses versus open-source digital libraries (e.g. Project Gutenburg, Internet Archive, Google Books, Gale databases)
•       using TEI tags to enhance research skills and develop annotation awareness as both creator and user
•       writing hyperlinked annotations as a tool to increase scholarship and boost students’ researching skills
•       collaborating across disciplines to engage the non-humanities major in digital humanities projects
The editors are not interested in exploring how new media—or social media—engages the classroom.
Proposals for the 3,000-5,000-word articles should not exceed 500 words. Please submit proposals to digitalhumanities at ttu.edu<mailto:digitalhumanities at ttu.edu> by 15 June 2013. All queries should also be sent to the aforementioned email address. Please consult The CEA Critic site for formatting guidelines: http://www.cea-web.org/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=15&Itemid=30
