Vectors: Journal of Culture and Technology in a Dynamic Vernacular is
pleased to announce the launch of its new issue devoted to the theme of
Difference: http://www.vectorsjournal.org

Our fifth issue of Vectors stages multiple examinations of the notion
of difference as it plays out in a variety of spheres, discourses and
practices, while also privileging race and ethnicity as a central
through-line of digital culture, a recurring ghost in our networked
machines.. Featured scholars include David Theo Goldberg/Stefka
Hristova, Wendy Chun, Mark Kann, Jon Ippolito, Minoo Moallem,
Jennifer Terry and Christian Sandvig. Vectors is produced by editors
Tara McPherson and Steve Anderson, co-creative directors Erik Loyer
and Raegan Kelly, and programmer Craig Dietrich with additional
design by Alex Ceglia.

Vectors is an international peer-reviewed electronic journal
dedicated to expanding the potentials of academic publication via
emergent and transitional media. Vectors brings together visionary
scholars with cutting-edge designers and technologists to propose a
thorough rethinking of the dynamic relationship of form to content in
academic research, focusing on the ways technology shapes, transforms
and reconfigures social and cultural relations. We only publish
works that exceed the boundaries of print.

Please also explore previous issues in the Vectors Archive and
contribute to an ongoing dialogue with the project creators via the
Vectors Forums.

Feel free to share this announcement widely.

         Subject: New on Digital Arts & Humanities

Digital Arts & Humanities is a place to share and discuss ideas,
promote your research and discover the digital arts and humanities.

It is a virtual (meta)community for arts and humanities researchers
using ICT methods, developed by the AHRC ICT Methods Network and
hosted by King's College London. We host various discussion groups
and offer community and dissemination tools for practitioners working
in the field. Part of Digital Arts & Humanities is a match-making
service for registered users that allows you to search members'
profiles for common interests or needed skills - we currently have
over 300 profiles in the database.


You can contribute to all the ongoing discussions, engage with others
- and maybe even start your own group. Please contact Torsten Reimer
(torsten.reimer_at_kcl.ac.uk) for further questions.
