Digital Defoe is the new online peer-reviewed publication of the Defoe Society. It is now seeking submissions for its first issue, which will take as its subject “Defoe and the Media.”

We are also interested in publishing details about upcoming publications on Defoe, brief accounts of current research projects on Defoe, or pedagogical reports on or dynamic demonstrations of Defoe in the classroom, especially those that use innovative approaches and technologies. Information on recent Defoe conference panels is also welcome. Multimedia submissions using video, audio, images, hyperlinks, or other media are especially encouraged.

Submissions or inquiries should be sent by e-mail to co-editors Dr.
