         Subject: Human IT 8:2

Dear all,

[sorry for any x-posting]

a new issue of Human IT (all in English this
time) is now available on the Web at http://www.hb.se/bhs/ith/2-8/

The issue is partly a follow-up to a digital
humanities conference held at the university of
Umeå, Sweden in 2005. Apart from a conference
report in the editorial, the issue offers two
peer reviewed articles based on talks at the
conference, as well as a third article in the
open section. The following texts are included:

* Editorial: Towards a Digital Humanities Base.

* Lena Karlsson: "Acts of Reading Diary
Weblogs". [refereed section] <http://www.hb.se/bhs/ith/2-8/lk.pdf>
What is a diary blog and how do its readers
engage with it? What are the similarities and
differences between writing and reading a
traditional, private paper diary, and an open,
online diary blog - or is reading a diary blog
perhaps more akin to watching a TV soap opera?

* Eva Kingsepp: "Immersive Historicity in World
War II Digital Games". [refereed section]
Digital World War II games enable users to
reenact history while being able to change its
outcome. How do such games simulate and represent
the historical reality of WWII (if ever there was
one), and how do they enable user immersion?

* Dong-Hee Shin: "Information Technology for Community Development:
Broadband Public Networks". [open section]
Who gets to have a say as major changes occur in
the technological infrastructural landscape, and
how do different actors' and stakeholders'
perspectives and preferences match one another?
The implementation of broadband public networks
in the US forms the basis for a critical SCOT analysis.

Human IT is a multidisciplinary, refereed and
open access journal aiming to present research
and discussion on digital media as communicative,
aesthetic, and ludic instruments.
