Dr. McDonald recently co-edited a special issue of the Journal of Sport History, “Doing Sport History in the Digital Present” (Vol. 44, No. 2, Summer 2017). This is among the first collections to address theories, issues, and methods related to sport history in relationship to digital scholarship. The 14 articles in the special issue were initially presented and reviewed at a workshop hosted by the Sports, Society, and Technology Research Center at the Georgia Institute of Technology in May 2016.  With Dr. Jennifer Sterling (University of Iowa) and Dr. Murray Phillips (University of Queensland) Dr. McDonald also co-authored the special issue’s introduction, an essay that discusses each of the 14 articles’ unique contributions while also considering the challenges and possibilities of digital scholarship within sport history.  Each article in the special issue can be accessed at: http://www.journalofsporthistory.org/current-issue.html
