Promotional Information

If you want to know exactly what the digital humanities is, what refinements on traditional scholarly activities it offers, what new forms of knowledge making and knowledge sharing it makes possible, what long held truths or truisms it challenges, and what brave new worlds and nightmare scenarios it harbors, this is the book for you. -- Stanley Fish, Davidson-Kahn Distinguished University Professor of Law and Humanities, Florida International University Digital_Humanities is a perfect summation of our exciting, turbulent moment in the history of learning, thinking, and research in the humanities (writ large). Hundreds of scholars and students today are rethinking the basic forms and norms of higher education. This book is a manifesto that helps to capture the energy of this work over the last decade in order to energize the radical transformation in modes of learning that needs to happen in the next one. -- Cathy N. Davidson, Codirector, Ph.D. Lab in Digital Knowledge, Duke University; author of Now You See It: How Technology and Brain Science Will Transform Schools and Business for the 21st Century Digital_Humanities is much more than a manifesto for a new kind of scholarly knowing through making. It engages with the striking variety of work now pushing the boundaries of work: web documentaries, dense mapping, humanities gaming, data mining, and critical curationjust to name a few. Here you will find an expansive, generous picture of the future of scholarship, one built on core values of the humanities, but reaching out to quantitative work, to social scientific studies, to contemporary filmmaking and citizen documentation. Provocative, enthusiastic, and generative, it is a book that joins the humanities to our contemporary, digital world. -- Peter Galison, Joseph Pellegrino University Professor, Harvard University

Reviews

Digital_Humanities is, to put it clearly from the very start, a landmark publication that may prove as significant and powerful as Jean-Francois Lyotard's Postmodern Condition (1979). -Image & Narrative
