How do you teach the history of sexuality in an academic environment that is increasingly defined by digital processes and ways of interacting? NOTCHES: (re)marks on the history of sexuality invites submissions for a special issue on the challenges and potentialities of teaching with the digital humanities. We welcome short entries (500 – 750 words) discussing the ways that digital methodologies and environments shape pedagogical approaches to the history of sexuality. Your contributions might cover but are not limited to:

  • Using databases or digitized source material in lessons
  • Incorporating digital humanities methods like distant reading, topic modeling, GIS, and data visualization into your teaching or historical practice
  • Using social media (twitter, Facebook, Wikipedia and online forums) to structure teaching, learning and writing assignments
  • Presenting ideas and research through podcasts, videos, blogs, wikis, or web exhibitions

NOTCHES is an international, collaborative, open-access, peer-reviewed history of sexuality blog.
