Alternative Historiographies of the Digital Humanities wins the DH Caucus of the American Studies Association Book Award

Here is the official announcement that Alternative Historiographies of the Digital Humanities has won the DH Caucus of the American Studies Association’s 2021 ASA DH Caucus Book Award: According to the caucus’s website:

For the book award, we especially seek submissions that: 1) center research topics that “promote the development of interdisciplinary research on U.S. culture and history in a global context” (following ASA’s stated purpose); 2) address these topics through anti-racist, feminist, community-led, or activist modes and methods; 3) are written collaboratively; 4) engage the complicated politics at play in DH collaborative research. We seek not only scholarly monographs; we invite submissions of trade books, self-published collectively written zines, and other alternative formats.

Many thanks to the editors Dorothy Kim and Adeline Koh for all of their untiring work to bring the collection to publication. I am thrilled that my essay/program “Why are the Digital Humanities So Straight?” is part of such a wonderful collection:
