        Subject: CfP: Digital Project Handbook

Call for Participation: Visualizing Objects, Places, and Spaces: A
Digital Project Handbook

Visualizing Objects, Places, and Spaces: A Digital Project Handbook

is a peer-reviewed open resource designed to fill the gap between
platform-specific tutorials and disciplinary discourse in digital
humanities.Led by Beth Fischer (Mellon Postdoctoral Fellow in Digital
Humanities at the Williams College Museum of Art) and Hannah Jacobs
(Digital Humanities Specialist, Wired! Lab, Duke University), this
project offers high-level recommendations for project planning,
breakdowns of specific project methods in the form of case studies, and
sample assignments to get instructors and students started. As the title
suggests, the /Handbook/ focuses on visual materials and visual methods
of communication in digital humanities.

The project leaders are seeking submissions of case studies and sample
assignments to include in the /Handbook/:

    Case studies are short overviews of digital projects that help
     /Handbook /readers see what such research initiatives actually look
     like in practice.
    Sample assignments give an overview of how specific digital
     humanities techniques, methods, or approaches can be practiced in
     classroom settings at various levels. They are intended as a
     resource for content and as a way of estimating the time, resources,
     and steps required to implement student-centric digital humanities
     projects from lesson planning to assessment.

For this first call, we are prioritizing submissions to the Archival
and Temporal
(https://handbook.pubpub.org/temporal) sections
of the /Handbook/, but we recognize that many projects fall into
multiple of our project type categories
If your project fits with multiple project types, or if you'd like to
submit to any other project type, please do not hesitate to do so. If
you have questions about this, please contact digitalhandbook[at]duke.edu.

We are accepting submissions from digital humanities practitioners in a
broad range of educational and cultural heritage contexts including
higher education institutions, K-12, libraries, archives, museums, and
those independent of institutional affiliation. All submissions that are
used on the site will be subject to our peer-review process and given
full attribution, and we will link to your project website or publications.

First round submission deadline: January 15, 2020

Submit your case study or sample assignment at

Send direct questions to digitalhandbook[at]duke.edu.
