We are very pleased to announce the first issue

This first issue brings together a fascinating
range of perspectives, and we expect this breadth
to be even more visible as future issues
accumulate. We look forward to showcasing the
wide variety of materials that are being
submitted, both from traditional digital
humanities domains and from important related
areas such as new media studies, digital
libraries, and digital art. New pieces will be
added in a preview section as soon as they are
ready for publication, and a quarterly
announcement will notify readers when each new
issue is complete. Please bookmark the site for
now; an RSS feed will be coming soon. During the
course of the next year we will also be adding
more features such as commenting, searching, and
a variety of ways of interacting with the content.
