The Journal of Digital Humanities is currently on hiatus.

An experiment in scholarly communication conducted by RRCHNM’s PressForward Project, JDH was born of the desire to publish the most interesting and innovative digital humanities gray literature. Funded by the first PressForward grant (2011-2014) from the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation, JDH was closely linked to RRCHNM’s publication, Digital Humanities Now. Metrics for DHNow’s blog posts, conference presentations and white papers were used to identify content for JDH, where it was then revised, expanded upon, and eventually published in quarterly issues.

As an in-house, experimental publication, JDH accomplished its mission to provide essential insight for launching similar publications at a wide range of research organizations, the core focus of PressForward’s second (2014-2015) and third (2015-2018) phases. With this role behind it, JDH is taking a break while we at RRCHNM plan a sustainable second act. Our hope is that JDH will re-emerge as a journal that continues to highlight work in digital humanities. Until then, we are at work on an analysis of JDH’s first two years, and will share that publicly on its completion. Previous issues will remain archived and available for download.

Digital Contexts

The Editors

The digital contexts of our scholarly practice impact not only the kind of work that we may do as humanists, but also how we represent changes in theory and methods over time. Whether we are preserving, analyzing, or representing cultural heritage collections, interpreting digital media, or communicating through open repositories or social media, our activities […]

"...archival theory and practice need to be an integral element of such a critical framework, along with evolving historiographical and professional practices. The digital medium has challenged historians to expand their knowledge about archives, and understand their function in generating scholarship and knowledge."

Joshua Sternfeld, Katharina Hering, Kate Theimer, and Michael Kramer

"In addition to plotting related instances of digital media scholarship and creation, the Guide unpacks digital media, itself as a territory in which coordinates are enmeshed in humanities and social sciences research."
