We are very pleased to announce the first issue of Digital Humanities

digital media in the humanities, published online by the Alliance of
Digital Humanities Organizations.

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.
