Digital America is now accepting submissions for Issue No. 12. We are an online journal that focuses on digital art and culture with an eye towards impactful perspectives in the digital age, as well as deconstructing what it means to live in our current political climate. We are looking for critical essays, film, artwork, design, and reviews that question, analyze, and/or hack the tools of digital culture. We are also interested in work that explores how new behaviors and global networks of power and influence are examining what it means to be American.
