    Abstract:
    Curatorial note from Digital Pedagogy in the Humanities: Sarah Kember marks the moment for the launch of Ada: A Journal of Gender, New Media, and Technology by unsettling readers who might think existing scholarship has exhausted “the complex relation between technology, politics[,] and the social.” Taking gender as one axis in a multidimensional rendering of “a future that isn’t (and never was) all about technology,” the article returns issues of desire, intelligence, consciousness, and objecthood to the agenda of humanistic inquiry. It raises questions that would occasion lively debate during any course or module on gender, knowledge production, or subjectivity: To what ends do we submit ourselves to emergent surveillance practices? How are the priorities of academic journals shaped by attitudes toward technology and the mediation of scholarly persona? Kember also models the manifesto as a form amenable to presenting a synopsis of the movement from previous to current intellectual colloquies and outlining distinct points for elaboration through further inquiry, a task that can be uniquely instructive for graduate students learning how to articulate the main concerns within a field of scholarship.
