¶ 1 Leave a comment on paragraph 1 0 The editors of Literary Studies in the Digital Age: An Evolving Anthology (published by the MLA in 2013) invite your participation in expanding this living collection and charting new directions in the field of digital literary studies. Please visit the essays published here and help us answer some questions, whether in an article-length submission or in a comment on the site: What is not yet here? What work is being done—what work are you doing—that scholars need to know about? Essays on all topics in digital literary studies are welcome, particularly on those not yet represented in the volume. Please submit full papers, following MLA style (as set out in the seventh edition of the MLA Handbook or the third edition of the MLA Style Manual) by 15 June, to Kenneth M. Price (email@example.com) and Ray Siemens (firstname.lastname@example.org), using the subject line “DLS anthology.” Submissions will be evaluated initially by the editors, who will choose the most promising essays and post them in a drafts section for open review, a process intended to make strong essays even stronger through peer review. Authors would then be asked to revise in the light of reviewers’ comments, with the goal of eventually including the essays in Literary Studies in the Digital Age: An Evolving Anthology.
¶ 2 Leave a comment on paragraph 2 0 We began the process of creating this anthology with the intention of providing a primer to core tools and techniques for computational approaches to literary studies. Yet, since literary studies represents a confluence of fields and subfields, tools and techniques, and since computational approaches come from a great variety of sources, it became clear that any primer would have to be dynamic and capable of incorporating a rich and growing array of methodologies.
¶ 3 Leave a comment on paragraph 3 0 As a result, we’re exceptionally pleased to publish this anthology with the launch of MLA Commons, knowing at the same time that our work here is not done. We are excited about the opportunity that the Commons and its community presents for building on the foundation laid by the initial contributors to Literary Studies in the Digital Age.
¶ 4 Leave a comment on paragraph 4 0 We welcome not only comments on the anthology’s existing contributions but also submissions of additional article-length and primer-style contributions (see the collection’s introduction for instructions) that will broaden the anthology’s coverage of the existing field and chart new territory. We look forward to hearing from and expanding the digital literary studies community.
