Technology and Humanity

The following is a call for articles for a forthcoming themed issue of
eSharp, an established peer-reviewed journal publishing high-quality
research by postgraduate students. eSharp is pleased to support new and
early-career authors, and has actively encouraged emerging academic  
since 2002.

The twelfth issue of eSharp will consider the cultural and personal
consequences of scientific and mechanistic innovation. We welcome  
which examine and engage with the effects, influences or application of
technology in any area of the arts, humanities, social sciences and
education, and we encourage submissions from postgraduate students at  
stage of their research.

In keeping with the interdisciplinary nature of the journal the ideas of
technology, innovation and culture can be interpreted as broadly as  
wish, and may consider, but are by no means limited to, themes such as:
  • cyberspace and identity
  • politics, surveillance and privacy
  • the history, art and literature of the industrial and digital
  • digital media and technologies of exhibition
  • new technologies and the law
  • cybernetics, gender and the body
  • the movable type revolution
  • digital narratives and virtual worlds
  • education and innovation
  • dystopias, dyschronias and utopias
  • forensic and corpus linguistics

Submissions must be based on original research and should be between  
and 6,000 words in length. Please accompany your article with an  
of 200 to 250 words and a list of three to five keywords to indicate the
subject area of your article. For more information, a full list of
