Welcome to [X]position

An Evolving Digital World


We are delighted to introduce our first themed issue of [X]position: An Evolving Digital World. The editorial team are looking for prospective writers to explore varying and diverse topics around digital technologies, including impacts, successes, and challenges. The digital world has seen rapid advances in recent years and we want to give our students the opportunity to engage with the topic in a variety of written formats. If you have an idea you’d like to write about that’s not listed below but aren’t sure about it, please get in touch and we can offer advice on your topic.

Suggested topics include but are not limited to:

  • AI - generative, non-generative, machine learning etc.

  • Robotics

  • Technology for learning

    • past and present comparisons

    • corpus linguistics

    • digital humanities

    • digital data/archives/materials

    • Augmented Reality (AR) e.g., virtual labs, patient interactions, medical teaching devices, creative uses of AR in your subject area, including the Arts

  • Potential challenges posed by AI especially for the Arts (e.g., AI generated art/music)

  • Potential advantages posed by using technology to care for our heritage (e.g., DNA analysis)

  • Evolving communication tools and strategies e.g., social media, use of AR (filters), trends, ‘going viral’

  • The impact of translation and interpretation: both in terms of the material effect of the tech on those disciplines as jobs, and on the concept of translation as authorship/creative practice in itself

  • The impacts/effects of the digital world on connections and relationships - human-to-human and human-to-tech.

  • The increased use of computer modelling across lots of subjects, access to computing equipment across the world, ethics of research in digital spaces being used for military purposes.

We welcome expressions of interest via our application form. Abstracts are to be no more than 250 words and all other relevant information will be included on the form. For information on submission types, please see our guidance on how to write an abstract for the journal.
