         Subject: New Book Series: TOPICS IN THE DIGITAL HUMANITIES

          [please circulate; please excuse x-posting]


The University of Illinois Press is pleased to announce a new book series,
Topics in the Digital Humanities, under the general editorship of Susan
Schriebman and Ray Siemens.

Series Rationale and Description:
    The incorporation of computational methods into the humanities does
more than speed task work. Computers change the nature of tasks that can be
imagined and performed. New questions can be asked, and must be asked,
new research methods and tools have appeared, new methods for teaching and
publication have proliferated, expectations about skills have evolved, and
library purchases have shifted dramatically.
    Humanities computing is undergoing a redefinition of basic principles
by a continuous influx of new, vibrant, and diverse communities of
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.

Prospectus Submission:
    Topics in the Digital Humanities is accepting proposals for monographs
and co-authored works that directly serve the community of those engaging
with humanities computing tools and methodologies. Polemics and collections
of essays are not encouraged. Preparation and submission guidelines are
available at http://www.press.uillinois.edu/about/acquisition.html. Proposals
may be submitted to the series editors.
