Debates in the Digital Humanities!
Wednesday, February 4, 1-3pm, FMH 220.
Next week we’ll be discussing Debates in the Digital Humanities, an excellent DH-project-and-ebook about the concept of Digital Humanities research and projects, which is centered around debates in the field.
The meeting will discuss three chapters from the book:
The Digital Humanities Moment, by Matt Gold
Time, Labor, and Alternate Careers in Digital Humanities Knowledge Work, by Julia Flanders
The Resistance To Digital Humanities by David Greetham
Attendees are encouraged to read one or all of the chapters with the following questions in mind:
How are the authors in question defining DH? Is their use of the term already dated? Is DH an “Alt-Ac” career field, or a natural extension of humanities research? Is DH necessarily humanities-only?
Attendees are of course encouraged to also bring other, new questions, comments, and opinions.
