        Subject: CFP for special collection on Twine and teaching

Call for Papers: (

*EnTwine: A Critical and Creative Companion to Teaching with Twine* proposes
to feature multiple voices of users and teachers of the digital
storytelling platform Twine across creative, gaming, scholarly,
pedagogical, and literary contexts. We seek to include an expansive
pedagogical community inside and outside of university spaces that engage
deeply with the possibilities that Twine offers for creative and critical
expression. We invite short abstracts of up to 300 words and short
biographies of up to 100 words by *Friday, October 29, 2021*.

This collection serves as a proposed companion to *Twining*
( (2021) by
Anastasia Salter and Stuart Moulthrop, which has provided an invaluable
perspective on one of the longest standing hypertext literature platforms
in use today. *EnTwine* looks to a broader community of teachers,
researchers, gamers, and practitioners of Twine. It proposes to gather
theorizations, case studies, and how-to guides from gaming, media studies,
digital humanities, critical code studies, digital writing, literary
platform studies, composition studies, and more. This collection will
feature an expansive pedagogical community that engages deeply with the
possibilities that Twine offers for teaching and community building.

Contributions may include, but are not limited to:

Twine in Universities, GLAM institutions, STEAM;
Learning communities inside and outside the College/University;
Artist communities;
Collaboration and community building;
Digital storytelling and community building;
Transcultural and multicultural approaches;
Non-English and multilingual practices and works;
Digital literacies and multiliteracies;
Teaching and research;
Teaching and art/creativity;
Hands-on and experiential learning;
Accessibility and inclusion;
Archives, preservation, and knowledge sustainability.

We invite short abstracts of up to 300 words and short biographies of up to
100 words by *Friday, October 29, 2021*. For selected abstracts, eventual
contributions should be 4000 words or the equivalent for creative works.
The collection will be proposed to Amherst College Press, which uses the
open-source and open-access publishing platform, Fulcrum (, and publishes in both print and open-access
digital instances.

We encourage submissions from authors of underrepresented genders. This
includes cis women, trans women, trans men, non-binary people, and those
who are otherwise marginalized. We also encourage submissions from visible
minorities, Indigenous people, people with disabilities, and LGBTQ+
persons. We are especially interested in submissions that include
multimedia materials, and we welcome discussion about how to support
submissions that focus on non-English works.

Please send questions and submissions to Emily Christina Murphy and Lai-Tze
Fan at TwineCollection2021 [at] gmail [dot] com .
