Springer Book Series – Digital Culture and Humanities: Challenges and Developments in a Globalized Asia
 
We are pleased to announce that Springer will be publishing an English book series on Digital Culture and Humanities. You may find more information about the series here: http://www.springer.com/series/15727
 
The tentative book volume titles are as follows:
 
Volume 1: Digital Humanities and New Ways of Teaching
 (Call for Papers is now closed)
Volume summary: As digital culture has exerted heavy influence on the humanities, it will affect the way humanities subjects are being conceived in the university curriculum. This book will focus on the educational implications of digital humanities, study how the introduction of digital technology may critique and revolutionize the curriculum of the humanities, and explore the critical discourse that accompany the advent of digital humanities.
Volume editor: Dr AnnaWing-bo Tso
 
Volume 2: Digital Media and Technologies: New Art Forms and New Media Spectacles 
(Call for Papers Deadline:  5 January 2018)
Volume summary: The wide use of digital technology facilitates the birth of new art forms and social media, which in turn have produced far-reaching implications for changing media ownership and its role in the political economy. This volume strives to investigate the digitization of art and media within the dynamics of participatory culture, and how these changes affect the power relations between production and consumption of the new forms.
Volume editor: Dr Sunny Sui-kwong Lam 
 
Volume 3: Reconceptualization of the Humanities in the Digital Age 
(Call for Papers Deadline:  5 January 2018)
Volume Summary: Digitization has transformed the ways humanities subjects are conceived. This volume will look into new forms of representation that change our perception and interpretation of the humanities. It will cover topics such as texts and visuality, sight/site and sense, and how literature, history and culture are redefined in spatialized relations in the digital age.
Volume editor: Dr Kaby Wing-sze Kung
