Advanced Studies in the Materialities of Literature [2010-present]
Director: Manuel Portela
University of Coimbra
The Ph.D. Program ‘Advanced Studies in the Materialities of Literature’ was established by the Faculty of Arts at the University of Coimbra in 2010. Changes in the technologies of communication over the last three decades have changed both the regimes of representation of the media, and the regimes of representation based on the codes of writing. These changes have opened up a new chapter in the critical theory of the materialities of communication, which in turn reflects on research into literary forms of the past, as well as of the present. The purpose of this Program is to develop an emerging area of research dedicated to analyzing the materialities of literature – materialities of sound, voice, performance, image, writing, and also the digital materialities that define many contemporary literary practices and forms. This analysis of materiality will also imply a reflection on the technological mediations accompanying literature produced in the nineteenth, twentieth and twenty-first centuries – photography, phonograph, typewriting, film, radio, television, video, digital computer, mobile phone.
Comparative Media Studies [2000-present]
Director: James Paradis
Massachusetts Institute of Technology
Both the undergraduate and graduate programs manifest CMS's commitment to thinking across media forms, theoretical domains, cultural contexts, and historical periods. Both programs encourage the bridging of theory and practice, as much through course work as through participation in faculty and independent research projects. The logic behind these programs is simple: a core of CMS-specific courses establishes the overarching logic and connections that enables students to make the most of a wide array of interdisciplinary electives available both at MIT and Harvard. Students are encouraged to develop a broad understanding of key issues surrounding media change which cut across different national borders and delivery techniques; they are also encouraged to develop an in-depth understanding of multiple media traditions, old and new. In this way, the program manages to provide coherence while being uniquely shaped to fit the needs of each student.
University of Bergen
Teaching at the MA level is research based. Current research at the department includes work on electronic literature and other new forms of art and narrative that are developing in the digital media, work on gender and technology, on blogging as a learning and communication tool and as a form of narrative, on online games (MMOGs) as a cultural arena, on online social networks, and on using technology to analyse textual expression by computational means. We also have close contact with research groups working on text technology and computational linguistics.
Digital Culture and Society
Director: Tim Jordan
The aim of the MA in Digital Culture and Society (formerly Digital Culture and Technology) is to develop participants' understanding of the role and consequences of digital technologies in contemporary culture, broadly interpreted to include such areas of activity as performing arts, telecommunications, information technology, philosophy, law and education. The programme is conceived as fundamentally interdisciplinary, drawing for its teaching on four academic Schools: Humanities; Law; Physical Sciences & Engineering; and Social Science & Public Policy. It is aimed at a diverse range of participants, offering technological insights to those with non-technical backgrounds, and cultural perspectives to those who have not thought about digital culture in a systematic way.
Digital Cultures Project [2000-2005]
Director: William Warner
University of California at Santa Barbara
The Digital Cultures Project (DCP) brings together faculty and graduate students from across the UC system who are actively engaged with the history and theory of new digital technologies and the ways in which they are changing humanistic studies and the arts. It also serves as an agency through which faculty and graduate students who have not been actively engaged in these matters can learn about them in order to incorporate them in their future work. The project is based at UC Santa Barbara, where the English Department is the home to Transcriptions, an NEH-supported project concerned with digital technology in research and teaching.
Digital Humanities is a discipline born from the intersection of humanities scholarship and computational technologies. Its key purpose is to investigate how digital methodologies can be used to enhance research in disciplines such as History, Literature, Languages, Art History, Music, Cultural Studies and many others. Digital Humanities has a very strong practical component as it includes the concrete creation of digital resources for the study of specific disciplines, while at the same time having a strongly theoretical basis.
Digital Humanities and Culture [2011-present]
Director: Susan Schreibman
Trinity College, Dublin
This M.Phil. provides a platform for a technically innovative research path within the humanities giving students the opportunity to engage with a new and dynamic area of research. It provides them with the technologies, methodologies, and theories for digitally-mediated humanities providing a framework for new and bold research questions to be asked that would have been all but inconceivable a generation ago.
Media Design and Communication
Director: Simon Pummell
Piet Zwart Institute, Willem de Kooning Academy Hogeschool Rotterdam
Our programme is designed to develop graduates whose practice can move flexibly and fluently across a rapidly expanding field that continues to incorporate a range of hybrid practices. To name just a few possibilities: transmedia narratives, software art, e-publishing, lens-based practices (combining digital animation, photography, and cinema), free and open source software development, and participatory media practices.
Media Studies [2000-present]
Director: Andrea Press
University of Virginia
The Media Studies Department began in Fall 2000 as an interdisciplinary undergraduate major in the College of Arts and Sciences at The University of Virginia. The department is historical and critical in orientation and takes media as its object of study. The department focuses on the forms, institutions, and effects of media (radio, film, television, photography, print, digital and electronic media), with particular emphasis on the mass media of the modern and contemporary period.
Media Studies is critically engaged with the creative analysis, production, and research into traditional and emerging forms of media. The program has a significant emphasis on digital media through approaches to its history, theory, and technology and their impact upon contemporary life.
The best free cultural & educational content on the web [2006-present]
Editor: Dan Coleman [Stanford’s Continuing Studies Program]
Open Culture brings together high-quality cultural & educational media for the worldwide lifelong learning community. Web 2.0 has given us great amounts of intelligent audio and video. It’s all free. It’s all enriching. But it’s also scattered across the web, and not easy to find. Our whole mission is to centralize this content, curate it, and give you access to this high quality content whenever and wherever you want it.
A digital humanities project on the cultures of information [1998-present]
University of California at Santa Barbara
Transcriptions is a NEH-funded curricular development and research initiative started in 1998 by the English Dept. at UC Santa Barbara to focus on literary study and information society. The goal of Transcriptions is to demonstrate a paradigm—at once theoretical, instructional, and technical—for integrating new information media and technology within the core work of a traditional humanities discipline. Transcriptions seeks to "transcribe" between past and present understandings of what it means to be a literate, educated, and humane person.
Put in the form of a question: what is the relation between being "well-read" and "well-informed"? How, in other words, can contemporary culture sensibly create a bridge between its past norms of cultural literacy and its present sense of the immense power of information culture?

Click-on-Knowledge: Web-based Knowledge and Contemporary Scholarship 
Department of English, Germanic and Romance Studies, University of Copenhagen
Ordinarily providers of web-based knowledge and users of technology in the humanities do not interact on an academic level. The objective of the conference is to create a forum for interaction that breaks down this barrier. Thus, we ask participants to redefine their own disciplines in order to address the possibility of a new definition of knowledge: a definition that has implication for the fields of philosophy, ethics, economy, law, and psychology. We will ask about the consequences this new dissemination has for the establishment of transnational, or rather global (abandoning national borders) communities of knowledge.

Texas Institute for Literary and Textual Studies
Directors: Lars Hinrichs & Matt Cohen
University of Texas, at Austin

Wiki centerNet web site [2007-present]
This Wiki presents a structured list of departments, centres, institutes and other institutional forms that variously instantiate humanities computing. For each entry a link is provided to the relevant site on the WWW and a brief description given. This list represents an ongoing attempt to derive a basic typology from a complex variety of activities and so to provide institutional models for the field. Despite the fact that national academic conventions vary quite widely and cultural differences make comparisons difficult if not hazardous, no attempt has been made here to account for them. The intention is not to define what is happening in the field world-wide, rather it is to provoke discussion leading either to consensus or at least to an improved understanding of the conditions under which computing humanists work. Constructive criticisms and clarifications are not merely welcome, they are to the point.
Digital Humanities Conference [2006-present]
Digital Humanities is the annual international conference of the Alliance of Digital Humanities Organisations (ADHO). ADHO is an umbrella organisation whose goals are to promote and support digitally-based research and teaching across the arts and humanities disciplines. It embraces three 'constituent organisations': the Association for Literary and Linguistic Computing (ALLC), the Association for Computers and the Humanities (ACH) and the Society for Digital Humanities/Société pour l'étude des médias interactifs (SDH-SEMI).

Digital Humanities & Media Studies [UCLA, 2008-present]
A Digital Humanities Manifesto [UCLA, 15 Dec 2008]
The Digital Humanities Manifesto 2.0 [UCLA, 29 May 2009]
The affiliated faculty come from more than ten departments, representing nearly every discipline in the humanities. By bringing together expertise and experience from their respective disciplines, all of the faculty are interested in the question of what it means to pursue humanistic inquiry and humanistic scholarship in the digital age. What are the challenges, possibilities, and risks for knowledge production, disciplinary structures, methodological/ theoretical commitments, and evaluative mechanisms? In what ways are the various disciplines of the humanities being reconstituted and reconfigured in light of new technologies for producing and disseminating knowledge?
Digital Humanities Observatory
Royal Irish Academy
Director: Susan Schreibman
The Digital Humanities Observatory (DHO) is a central component within the Humanities Serving Irish Society (HSIS) initiative.

Electrifying Literature: Affordances and Constraints
West Virginia University [20-23 June 2012]
An International Digital Poetry Festival [2001-present]
Presently entering its second decade, E-Poetry is a renowned biennial international artistic gathering founded on dialog over emerging issues in digital, visual, sound, and language-based arts. Its emphasis is on literary practice in an encompassing sense, i.e., the practice of thinking through engagement with the material aspects of inscribed media forms, the building of community, and the exchange of ideas across languages, borders, and ideologies. Rather than considering "new form" a qualifying criterion, it seeks to locate innovative artistic practice in its cultural, conceptual, and media milieu. Hence, if "e-poetry" is going to point to emergent artistic processes in a New Media age – inasmuch as they inform the digital – e-poetry can exist in any number of formats, including programmable, performance, visual, sound-based, conceptual, and book art ... i.e., even on paper. E-Poetry normally meets every two years, usually in May, in various locations worldwide. Recent gatherings have occurred in Buffalo, West Virginia, London, Paris, and Barcelona.
Hacking the Academy [2010-2011]
Roy Rosenzweig Center for History and New Media, George Mason University
Can an algorithm edit a journal? Can a library exist without books? Can students build and manage their own learning management platforms? Can a conference be held without a program? Can Twitter replace a scholarly society?
As recently as the mid-2000s, questions like these would have been unthinkable. But today serious scholars are asking whether the institutions of the academy as they have existed for decades, even centuries, aren’t becoming obsolete. Every aspect of scholarly infrastructure is being questioned, and even more importantly, being <em>hacked</em>. Sympathetic scholars of traditionally disparate disciplines are cancelling their association memberships and building their own networks on Facebook and Twitter. Journals are being compiled automatically from self-published blog posts. Newly-minted Ph.D.’s are foregoing the tenure track for alternative academic careers that blur the lines between research, teaching, and service. Graduate students are looking beyond the categories of the traditional C.V. and building expansive professional identities and popular followings through social media. Educational technologists are “punking” established technology vendors by rolling their own open source infrastructure.
HyperStudio: Laboratory for Digital Humanities
humanities + digital visual interpretations conference [20-22 May 2010]
Massachusetts Institute of Technology
MIT's HyperStudio - Laboratory for Digital Humanities explores the potential of new media technologies for the enhancement of education and research in the humanities. Our work focuses on questions about the integration of technology into humanities curricula within the broader context of scholarly inquiry and educational practice. We conceptualize, develop, and deploy innovative media applications in close collaboration with scholars, educators, students, and developers.
Institutional Models for Humanities Computing [2003-present]
Willard McCarty and Matthew Kirschenbaum
'Institutional Models for Humanities Computing' is a structured list of departments, centres, institutes and other institutional forms that variously instantiate humanities computing. It is an official publication of the Association for Literary and Linguistic Computing. From 2003 it is a yearly feature of Literary and Linguistic Computing (LLC, published by Oxford University Press) but will also be maintained online (at www.allc.org/imhc/) and updated as need be.
For each entry a link is provided to the relevant site on the WWW and a brief description given. This list represents an ongoing attempt to derive a basic typology from a complex variety of activities and so to provide institutional models for the field. Despite the fact that national academic conventions vary quite widely and cultural differences make comparisons difficult if not hazardous, no attempt has been made here to account for them.

Generating Reasearch in Culture and Theory [1999-present]
Editors: Dave Boothroyd, Gary Hall, and Joanna Zylinska
Culture Machine is a series of experiments in culture and theory.
The aim of Culture Machine is to seek out and promote the most provocative of new work, and analyses of that work, in culture and theory from a diverse range of international authors. Culture Machine is particularly concerned to promote research which is engaged in the constitution of new areas of inquiry and the opening of new frontiers of cultural and theoretical activity. It is also committed to the generation of possibilities for new scholarship and research. But other than these founding aims (which are themselves, along with the very concepts of 'founding' and of 'aims', possible themes to be analysed), Culture Machine has no specific agenda, no project or programme (cultural, theoretical, political, social or ethical) it intends to see worked out in its various manifestations. Instead, Culture Machine will endeavour be to cultural studies what 'fundamental research' is to the natural sciences: open ended, non-goal orientated, exploratory and experimental in approach.

Digital Humanities Now aggregates and selects material from our Compendium of the Digital Humanities, drawing from hundreds of venues where high-quality digital humanities scholarship is likely to appear, including the personal websites of scholars, institutional sites, blogs, and other feeds. It also seeks to discover new material by monitoring Twitter and other social media for stories discussed by the community, and by continuously scanning the broader web through generalized and specialized search engines. Scholarship—in whatever form—that drives the field of digital humanities field forward is highlighted in the Editors’ Choice column. Digital Humanities Now also lists news items of interest to the field—jobs, calls for papers, conference and funding announcements, reports, and recently-released resources.
Digital Humanities Quarterly [2005-present]
Digital Humanities Quarterly (DHQ), an open-access, peer-reviewed, digital journal covering all aspects of digital media in the humanities. Published by the Alliance of Digital Humanities Organizations (ADHO), DHQ is also a community experiment in journal publication, with a commitment to: experimenting with publication formats and the rhetoric of digital authoring; co-publishing articles with Literary and Linguistic Computing (a well-established print digital humanities journal) in ways that straddle the print/digital divide; using open standards to deliver journal content; developing translation services and multilingual reviewing in keeping with the strongly international character of ADHO.
The Journal of the Digital Medievalist Community [2005-present]
Digital Medievalist (DM) is the project's on-line, refereed Journal. DM accepts work of original research and scholarship, notes on technological topics (markup and stylesheets, tools and software, etc.), commentary pieces discussing developments in the field, bibliographic and review articles, and project reports. All contributions are reviewed by authorities in humanities computing prior to publication. Contributions to DM should concern topics likely to be of interest to medievalists working with digital media, though they need not be exclusively medieval in focus. They should be of a length appropriate to the subject under discussion; in most instances this means between 1,000 and 10,000 words.

'New Textualities' [ Volume 11, Issue 2, August 2007]
Issue editor: Manuel Portela
Digital technology has opened new reading and writing spaces. It has originated new kinds of literacy, new sets of social practices, and new kinds of text. Since the 1980s, computers have become a ubiquitous tool for creating, editing, archiving, structuring, retrieving and analysing all sorts of texts, verbal and non-verbal. The ongoing shift from codex to computer has had significant effects on many forms of textuality. At the same time, paradigm shifts within disciplines have worked alongside the new technologies to extend the understanding of textuality within English Studies well beyond the verbal. One significant change was the textualising of cultural forms. As various media forms and genres were textualised, the representational nature of texts as institutional and cultural facts was re-examined. In short, ‘new textualities’ are the product of the combined effects of technological and theoretical shifts. [MP]

the international journal of computer game research [2001-present]
General editor: Espen Aarseth
Center for Computer Games Research, University of Copenhagen
Game Studies is a crossdisciplinary journal dedicated to games research, web-published several times a year at www.gamestudies.org.
Our primary focus is aesthetic, cultural and communicative aspects of computer games, but any previously unpublished article focused on games and gaming is welcome. Proposed articles should be jargon-free, and should attempt to shed new light on games, rather than simply use games as metaphor or illustration of some other theory or phenomenon.
Genetic Joyce Studies
Electronic Journal for the Study of James Joyce's Works in Progress [2001-present]
Editor: Dirk Van Hulle
Antwerp James Joyce Center, University of Antwerp, Belgium
The purpose of this electronic journal is to create a forum for genetic Joyce criticism, where a broad audience can read the results of recent genetic investigations. Since this kind of research into the writing process of Joyce's works cannot always result in full-length academic articles, certain discoveries never come to light. Genetic Joyce Studies is a flexible, refereed medium that enables researchers to give notice of their genetic discoveries, source studies, new insights, and critical analyses of Joyce's working method.
Editor: Louis Armand (Charles University, Prague)
Hypermedia Joyce Studies was founded in 1994 as a refereed journal of criticism and scholarship on the works of James Joyce, and was initiated by Rob Callahan & Louis Armand. The original editorial board also included Alan Roughley and Julian Croft. The first issue was launched in December 1995.
Journal for Information Technology Studies as a Human Science [1997-present]
Editors: Veronica Johansson and Jonas Söderholm
ITH - Centre for Information Technology Studies as a Human Science and
Center for Collaborative Innovation at the University College of Borås, Sweden
Human IT is a multi-disciplinary and scholarly journal with the goal of bringing forth new research and discussion about digital media as communicative, aesthetic, and ludic instruments. The journal is closely aligned with the new field of research which is alternatively referred to as humanities computing, social informatics, or informatica umanistica. We welcome contributions from the humanities, the social, behavioural, and natural sciences, as well as technology. Human IT aspires to be a forum for new research which risks falling outside of the borders of intra-disciplinary channels of publication as a result of its multi-disciplinary approach or unorthodox choice of subject. A consequence of this interdisciplinary ambition is that Human IT is published jointly by the departments of the University College of Borås. It also works with an extended editorial board which includes representatives from many different scholarly disciplines, practices, and countries.

revista de arte, cultura e tecnologia [2000-presente]
Direcção: Maria Augusta Babo
Centro de Estudos de Comunicação e Linguagens - CECL [Universidade Nova de Lisboa]
A Interact é uma publicação digital, de periodicidade quadrimestral editada pelo Centro de Estudos de Comunicação e Linguagens (CECL). O seu objectivo é a reflexão e a discussão em torno de temáticas importantes do pensamento contemporâneo, o acompanhamento crítico de acontecimentos e práticas culturais e artísticas e o incentivo ao trabalho de experimentação com as tecnologias digitais e as redes de informação. Diminuir o fosso ainda existente entre a cultura e a cibercultura é ainda uma das suas principais motivações, procurando por isso o encontro (e o confronto) entre práticas mais tradicionais no âmbito da cultura (como o ensaio, a crítica e a recensão), e práticas de expressão, de reflexão e de criatividade próprias à cultura digital, como as da hipertextualidade e hipermedia, interactividade e conectividade.
Interact is a digital quarterly publication, edited by the Research Centre on Communication and Languages. Its purpose is the reflection and discussion of important themes in contemporary thought, the critical follow up of events and cultural and artistic practices, and the promotion of experimental work with digital arts and information networks. To reduce the still existent gap between culture and Cyberculture, one of its main motivations is seeking the transdisciplinary encounter (and confrontation) between more traditional practices in the context of culture (as the essay, the critics and the review), and expression practices, reflection and creativity found in the digital culture, such as hypertextuality, hypermedia, interactivity and connectivity.

Inventing the Medium [2011-2012]
Author: Janet H. Murray [Georgia Institute of Technology]
Inventing the Medium is based on three foundational principles: All things made with electronic bits and computer code belong to a single new medium, the digital medium, with its own unique affordances. Designing any single artifact within this new medium is part of the broader collective effort of making meaning through the invention and refinement of digital media conventions. When we expand the meaning-making conventions that make up human culture, we expand our ability to understand the world and to connect with one another.

Journal of Digital Information [1997-present]
Editors: Cliff McKnight and Scott Phillips
Publishing papers on the management, presentation and uses of information in digital environments. JoDI published its first papers in April 1997, when it was one of very few electronic-only journals. It continues as an electronic-only journal today. JoDI has introduced a unique theme-based editorial structure as a means of managing and integrating papers within its broad scope. Each theme has a theme editor. Themes could evolve to become journals within a journal, but will act cooperatively rather than competitively, and papers are interlinked and cross-indexed for ease of access. JoDI is supported by the British Computer Society and Oxford University Press.

officina di letteratura elettronica [2010-present]
Uno spazio nuovo dell’arte, fuori dal sistema mercantile. Uno spazio fisico e mentale. Uno spazio fisico che si estende nel mondo reale e in quello virtuale. Uno spazio mentale che prevede un nuovo modo di considerare i rapporti tra artisti e artisti e tra questi e il pubblico. Un’arte che ha obbiettivi sociali, politici, ambientali. Uno spazio mentale individuato dal concetto di “progetto”. Un’arte realmente concettuale legata non al mondo del mercato ma ai processi di trasformazione e cambiamento della società.
a book series from The MIT Press [2009-present]
Platforms have been around for decades, right under our video games and digital art. Those studying new media are now starting to dig down to the level of code to learn more about how computers are used in culture, but there have been few attempts to go deeper, to the metal — to look at the base hardware and software systems that are the foundation of computational expression.

Text and Genre in Reconstruction
Effects of Digitalization on Ideas, Behaviours, Products and Institutions [Open Book Publishers, 2010]
Edited by Willard McCarty
In this broad-reaching, multi-disciplinary collection, leading scholars investigate how the digital medium has altered the way we read and write text. In doing so, it challenges the very notion of scholarship as it has traditionally been imagined. Incorporating scientific, socio-historical, materialist and theoretical approaches, this rich body of work explores topics ranging from how computers have affected our relationship to language, whether the book has become an obsolete object, the nature of online journalism, and the psychology of authorship. The essays offer a significant contribution to the growing debate on how digitization is shaping our collective identity, for better or worse.

Topics in the Digital Humanities
Edited by Susan Schreibman and Raymond G. Siemens
University of Illinois Press
Humanities computing is undergoing a redefinition of basic principles by a continuous influx of new, vibrant, and diverse communities or practitioners within and well beyond the halls of academe. These practitioners recognize the value computers add to their work, that the computer itself remains an instrument subject to continual innovation, and that competition within many disciplines requires scholars to become and remain current with what computers can do. Topics in the Digital Humanities invites manuscripts that will advance and deepen knowledge and activity in this new and innovative field.
