Bodies of Information: Feminist Debates in Digital Humanities

I’m delighted that we’ve reached the stage where we are sending out the full manuscript for review and beginning the peer-to-peer review process for the newest volume in the Debates in DH series: Bodies of Information.

On a day when there is continuing bad news from 45’s administration, including the reprehensible effort to cut food and aid to the most vulnerable amongst us, perhaps a sneak peek at the TOC will help keep the fires of the resistance burning. We are excited by the scope of work represented here and look forward to sharing all of this great work with you as soon as we are able. NB: what appears below may change during our review and revision processes.
