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, Dimensional, and 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 

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
