Almost no aspect of our lives remains unaffected. It is again time to take stock, but this time in such a way as to bring out and bring together differences and commonalities across the full range of disciplines. For this issue of Interdisciplinary Science Reviews the editors seek to publish articles in the physical, social and human sciences that demonstrate in their conjunction the genuinely meaningful interdisciplinarity of the digital machine. As a methodological tool, the computer is obviously interdisciplinary – its ubiquity in research of all kinds makes the case. However, it has quite different effects from one discipline to the next. By design, a computer requires input in discrete binary terms and so raises the question of how this requirement differentially affects each area of work. Furthermore, we may argue, the remarkable, proven adaptability of computers to widely varying problems, degrees of complexity and experimental, even imaginative application evokes tendencies and affects practices differentially across the disciplines in which they are used. Some disciplines have become largely computational, or grown a computational branch; others, for which the tradeoff is less attractive, are resistant. Why? Compare, for example, physics, biology, sociology, literary studies, the arts. Thus we welcome contributions from scholars wanting to participate in the debate concerning the effects of computers on their disciplines. We welcome articles with a particular focus on the relation between the conceptual and methodological framework of an area of expertise and the abstractions, analogies, encodings, models, simplifications and translations imposed by the data and operations of computing. Broad statements of what can and cannot be automated, and how automation affects research, are far less telling and useful than analyses based on examples of work in specific fields. We are looking for arguments backed up by details. Historical and philosophical approaches are of particular interest. Timeline Deadline for 300-word abstract submission: January 31st, 2020. Abstracts notification: March 1st, 2020. Deadline for 8000-word paper submission: June 28th, 2020. Papers notification: September 28th, 2020. Deadline for final version: December 31st, 2020.

Variants (https://journals.openedition.org/variants/275) is an Open Access, peer-reviewed journal, published with Open Edition publishers. The fifteenth issue of the journal will carry the title of our most recent ESTS conference in Málaga: "Textual Scholarship in the 21st Century", and we especially welcome extended versions of papers that were presented at the conference. But essays outside of the conference are welcome too, on any aspect of textual scholarship such as the theories and practices of (digital) scholarly editing, tool development, genetic criticism, codicology and palaeography, philology, manuscript studies, etc. If you are interested in submitting an essay, please send an expression of interest by *Friday January 10th* that includes a brief description of the essay's topic (approximately 50 to 100 words) to firstname.lastname@example.org . Full papers are due by Friday March 13, 2020. We accept submissions in .docx and its open source equivalents. For authors who are comfortable writing in LaTeX, we have prepared a template that is available on GitHub (https://github.com/WoutDLN/variantx-for-authors) and as an Overleaf template (https://www.overleaf.com/latex/templates/submission-template-to- variants-for-authors/znsqffgrvshv). Please share this call with anyone who may be interested. If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to forward them to us! We look forward to receiving your submissions, The Editorial board of Variants, General Editor, Wout Dillen Associate Editor, Elli Bleeker Guest Editor, Laura Esteban Segura Review Editor, Stefano Rosignoli _______________________________________________ Unsubscribe at: http://dhhumanist.org/Restricted List posts to: email@example.com List info and archives at at: http://dhhumanist.org Listmember interface at: http://dhhumanist.org/Restricted/ Subscribe at: http://dhhumanist.org/membership_form.php
