An Evolving Anthology


1 Leave a comment on paragraph 1 0 Literary Studies in the Digital Age: An Evolving Anthology, launched in 2013, is the MLA’s first born-digital, publicly available anthology. It continues to grow: two essays are currently being revised for the second iteration of the anthology, and the editors invite your participation in expanding this collection for the third iteration.

2 Leave a comment on paragraph 2 0 MLA members can submit essays and ideas for future iterations of the volume as well as upload drafts of their own work to the DLS Anthology group on MLA Commons. If you are interested in submitting a full paper, please read the call for papers and submit your essay by 15 June 2016 to the editors at lsda.editors@gmail.com.

3 Leave a comment on paragraph 3 0 Since public review and commentary help scholars develop their ideas, the editors hope that readers will also continue to comment on the already published essays in this volume, thereby helping this living collection chart new directions in digital literary studies.

4 Leave a comment on paragraph 4 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.

5 Leave a comment on paragraph 5 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.

6 Leave a comment on paragraph 6 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.
