>Technoculture
>A Special Issue of Interdisciplinary Humanities
>
>Guest Editors:
>Dr. Keith Dorwick, The University of Louisiana at
>Lafayette
>Dr. Kevin Moberly, North Carolina Wesleyan College
>
>For a special issue of Interdisciplinary Humanities
>(IH), guest editors Keith Dorwick and Kevin Moberly
>seek papers from a broad a range of academic
>disciplines that focus on issues that could be briefly
>summed as ýtechnology and society,ţ or, perhaps,
>ýtechnologies and societies.ţ 
>
>IH is published by the National Association for
>Humanities Education and is a refereed scholarly
>journal, published twice a year. Potential authors
>should note that this issue has been accepted for
>publication already; we will not need to find a
>publisher.
>
>Successful papers for this special issue should focus
>on the ways humanists read technology in a range of
>historical periods and of academic and artistic
>disciplines as the subject of their work or as a
>special case of cultural studies. 
>
>Topics for this special issue could include depictions
>of technologies that treat a wide range of subjects
>related to the humanities.  These subjects might
>include:
>´literature, film, theater, and television as
>technologies;
>´the cultural impact of technology on particular
>cultures or subcultures;
>´technology and its affect on the production of
>contemporary/historical artistic works and/or the work
>of artists;
>´technology as the dream (or nightmare) that drives
>novelists, poets, artists, playwrights and essayists
>to their notebooks, brushes, canvasses, stages and
>screens;
>´the economics of technology in the humanities;
>´computer/video gaming;
>´hypertext (especially hypertext and the arts or
>literature);
>´the dissemination of the arts via technology to broad
>or to specialized audiences;
>´the death of the book;
>´the myth of the ýdeath of the bookţ;
>´the disappearance of a given technology or
>technologies and what that
>disappearance/disappearances means/mean for the
>archival issues that surround the humanities.
>
>In particular, the special editors are interested in a
>conception of ýtechnologyţ and the ýhumanist impulseţ
>that pushes beyond contemporary American culture and
>its fascination with computers; we seek papers that
>deal with any technology or technologies in any number
>of historical periods from any relevant theoretical
>perspective. We are not interested in ýhow toţ
>pedagogical papers that deal with the use of
>technology in the classroom.
>
>We hope to publish mainly scholarly/critical papers in
>citation styles relevant to the home discipline of
>their authors, but creative works including poetry and
>creative non-fiction are also of interest to us. We
>also publish art work and are seeking original art
>(grayscale or line drawings and full color art for the
>front and back cover) that explores the role of
>technology in our lives.
>
>Inquiries are welcome, though, again, only full
>manuscripts will be considered for possible inclusion
>in this special issue.
>
>Please submit article proposals/abstracts by May 15,
>2006. The editors will then request full length drafts
>from those abstracts still under consideration.
>Length: 20-25 double-spaced manuscript pages and
