The interdisciplinary online journal Southern Spaces invites researchers, writers, teachers, artists, documentary producers, and geographers to submit materials for the 2017–2018 “Digital Spaces” series. We encourage multi-media articles and projects that address real and imagined spaces and places of the US South, but also welcome submissions that model innovative digital scholarship, activism, art, and teaching wherever it takes place. For more information, view the call for submissions.

The “Digital Spaces” series invites projects that explore the possibilities of publication, curation, and data visualization, as well as theoretical submissions about the politics and disciplinary tensions of digital scholarship. In addition to articles, photo essays, presentations, and short videos, Southern Spaces will publish peer-reviewed digital projects as a part of the “Digital Spaces” series. Projects may take a variety of forms, including multi-media and multi-modal submissions. Please email managing editor, Meredith Doster, with any questions.

Possible topics and themes include, but are not limited to:

  • Digital projects based in the US South
  • Projects that take southern places and regions as their subject
  • Explorations of the representational politics of digital scholarship, demographic histories, global migrations, and diasporas
