Publication Announcement: “One Loveheart at a Time: The Language of Emoji and the Building of Affective Community in the Digital Medieval Studies Environment”

I’m very excited to announce an article on Slack and emoji in Digital Humanities Quarterly, written with the Old Books New Science Lab! You can read the article here! We present a unique case study on emoji, which complicates existing work that has focused on two-person conversations and on standardized Unicode emoji. We also theorize the impacts of productivity software on academic work, especially in emerging “humanities labs,” arguing that ‘neoliberal’ tools can also support horizontal community-building if used self-reflectively.
