The Journal of Emerging Learning Design is pleased to announce the Call for
Papers for its first Special Issue: The Digital Humanities.

With roots reaching back as far as 1940, the term Digital Humanities came
into wide usage in late 2012 and has slowly risen in popularity since then.
A Google Scholar search for “digital humanities” yields just under 30
results during the year 2000 and over 4,700 during 2015.  The increase in
the number of published articles in 15 years is second only to the
diversity of the research that is included.

About the ELDj

The Journal of Emerging Learning Design (ELDj) is an open access,
peer-reviewed, online journal that provides a platform for academics and
practitioners to explore emerging learning design theories, concepts, and
issues and their implications at national and international levels.

An outgrowth of the annual Emerging Learning Design Conference
<http://eld.montclair.edu/>, which makes its home at Montclair State
University (MSU), the ELDj invites scholarly communication in the emerging
learning design field and will present best practices in design and
implementation by offering articles that present, propose, or review
engaging and dynamic approaches to pedagogy and how technology can better
enhance it.

understanding that this issue, and the articles within, will contribute to
this growing field and provide a groundwork for further reflection and
