    Special Issue of Digital Creativity: Hybrid Pedagogies
    Abstracts Due: 30 May 2019
    Guest Editors: Matt Ratto, Daniela Rosner, Yana Boeva, Alex Taylor

    An increasing awareness of the potential biases and problematic impacts of
    digital technologies is driving a renewed focus on social responsibility and
    ethical considerations within the fields of engineering and the computer and
    data sciences. Similarly, a renewed sense of complicity in our socio-technical
    environments has encouraged scholars from a range of design, humanities, and
    social science disciplines to engage more directly in public-facing work,
    often through prototyping, exhibition, and hands-on educational activities.
    However, practical and epistemic difficulties continue to impact our
    capacities to bridge across technical and social disciplines and to innovate
    the pedagogical activities of both areas. The so-called ‘great divide’ as
    described by Bowker, Star, Turner, and Gasser remains as present today as when
    they engaged with this issue in the late 90’s.

    This special issue on hybrid pedagogies seeks articles addressing the above
    themes. We welcome submissions that address the pedagogical challenges
    entangled with attempts to bridge across social and technical forms of
    scholarship and work. Submissions informed by critical race studies,
    postcolonial, queer, feminist, and learning theory are encouraged as are those
    addressing digital tools, practices, and components from a range of
    disciplinary perspectives. We are equally open as to the forms and methods of
    analysis. Examples include but are not limited to:

    • auto-ethnographic accounts of teaching and mentorship descriptions and
    analyses of organizational efforts and curriculum development
    • positioning of design and engineering in wider sites of world-building
    • methodological inventions on the cusp of the social and technical
    • interventions that amplify under-recognized legacies of data science or
    technology development.

    Submission Instructions
    Submission to this special issue is a two-stage process. Authors interested in
    contributing are invited to submit an extended abstract (500 words) for
    review. Authors whose abstracts are accepted will then be invited to submit a
    full paper (up to 7000 words). Full papers will then be double blind peer
    reviewed for acceptance into the special issue. Note that acceptance of
    abstract alone does not imply acceptance for publication in the journal.

    Important Dates:
    Abstracts due: May 30;
    Full papers due: July 15;
    Final versions due Sept 1;
    Expected publication: Winter, 2020
    Please send abstracts as PDFs or any questions to
