The Big Humanities

Author: Richard J. Lane
Publisher: Routledge
ISBN: 9781317692911
Release Date: 2016-11-25
Genre: Literary Criticism

This book provides an accessible introduction to, and overview of, the digital humanities, one of the fastest growing areas of literary studies. Lane takes a unique approach by focusing on the technologies and the new environment in which the digital humanities largely takes place: the digital laboratory. The book provides a brief history of DH, explores and explains the methodologies of past and current DH projects, and offers resources such as detailed case studies and bibliographies. Further, the focus on the digital laboratory space reveals affiliations with the types of research that have traditionally taken place in the sciences, as well as convergences with other fast-growing research spaces, namely innovation labs, fabrication labs, maker spaces, digital media labs, and change labs. The volume highlights the profound transformation of literary studies that is underway, one in which the adoption of powerful technology – and concomitantly being situated within a laboratory environment – is leading to an important re-engagement in the arts and humanities, and a renewed understanding of literary studies in the digital age, as well as a return to large-scale financial investment in humanistic research. It will be useful to students and teachers, as well as administrators and managers in charge of research infrastructure and funding decisions who need an accessible overview of this technological transformation in the humanities. Combining useful detail and an overview of the field, the book will offers accessible entry into this rapidly growing field.

Big Digital Humanities

Author: Patrik Svensson
Publisher: University of Michigan Press
ISBN: 9780472053063
Release Date: 2016-07-22
Genre: Education

Big Digital Humanities has its origins in a series of seminal articles Patrik Svensson published in the Digital Humanities Quarterly between 2009 and 2012. As these articles were coming out, enthusiasm around Digital Humanities was acquiring a great deal of momentum and significant disagreement about what did or didn’t “count” as Digital Humanities work. Svensson’s articles provided a widely sought after omnibus of Digital Humanities history, practice, and theory. They were informative and knowledgeable and tended to foreground reportage and explanation rather than utopianism or territorial contentiousness. In revising his original work for book publication, Svensson has responded to both subsequent feedback and new developments. Svensson’s own unique perspective and special stake in the Digital Humanities conversation comes from his role as director of the HUMlab at Umeå University. HUMlab is a unique collaborative space and Digital Humanities center, which officially opened its doors in 2000. According to its own official description, the HUMlab is an open, creative studio environment where “students, researchers, artists, entrepreneurs and international guests come together to engage in dialogue, experiment with technology, take on challenges and move scholarship forward.” It is this last element “moving scholarship forward” that Svensson argues is the real opportunity in what he terms the “big digital humanities,” or digital humanities as practiced in collaborative spaces like the HUMlab, and he is uniquely positioned to take an account of this evolving dimension of Digital Humanities practice.

Rhetoric and the Digital Humanities

Author: Jim Ridolfo
Publisher: University of Chicago Press
ISBN: 9780226176727
Release Date: 2015-01-19
Genre: Literary Criticism

The digital humanities is a rapidly growing field that is transforming humanities research through digital tools and resources. Researchers can now quickly trace every one of Issac Newton’s annotations, use social media to engage academic and public audiences in the interpretation of cultural texts, and visualize travel via ox cart in third-century Rome or camel caravan in ancient Egypt. Rhetorical scholars are leading the revolution by fully utilizing the digital toolbox, finding themselves at the nexus of digital innovation. Rhetoric and the Digital Humanities is a timely, multidisciplinary collection that is the first to bridge scholarship in rhetorical studies and the digital humanities. It offers much-needed guidance on how the theories and methodologies of rhetorical studies can enhance all work in digital humanities, and vice versa. Twenty-three essays over three sections delve into connections, research methodology, and future directions in this field. Jim Ridolfo and William Hart-Davidson have assembled a broad group of more than thirty accomplished scholars. Read together, these essays represent the cutting edge of research, offering guidance that will energize and inspire future collaborations.

Alif der Unsichtbare

Author: G. Willow Wilson
Publisher: S. Fischer Verlag
ISBN: 9783104905051
Release Date: 2018-01-25
Genre: Fiction

Ausgezeichnet mit dem World Fantasy Award als »Bester Roman des Jahres«. Alif, ein junger Hacker in einem arabischen Emirat, sieht es als seine Berufung an, seinen Klienten Anonymität und Schutz vor staatlicher Überwachung zu bieten, ganz gleich ob es sich dabei um Dissidenten oder Islamisten handelt. Doch als er selbst ins Fadenkreuz der Regierung gerät und sein Rechner gehackt wird, muss Alif sein bisheriges Leben hinter sich lassen und untertauchen. Dass ihm zudem ein uraltes Buch mit dem Titel »Tausendundein Tag« in die Hände gespielt wird, verkompliziert die Sache enorm. Denn sein Inhalt enthüllt die reale Existenz der Dschinn und scheint obendrein der Schlüssel zu einer neuen Informationstechnologie zu sein ... »Alif der Unsichtbare« widersetzt sich allen Genrekategorien: Dieser wundervolle Debütroman ist gleichermaßen Fantasy-Roman und dystopischer Techno-Thriller. Vor dem Hintergrund einer nicht näher bestimmten arabischen Großstadt erzählt er, was geschieht, wenn der Schleier zwischen sichtbarer und unsichtbarer Welt durchlässig wird.

Wie beeinflussen digitale Medien Erkenntnisprozesse? Lässt sich angesichts der Integration von digitalen Medien in den Hochschulalltag von einem digital turn sprechen? Wie können sie genutzt werden, um Lehr- bzw. Lernumgebungen zu schaffen, die kritisch, kreativ und innovativ Wissensgenerierungsprozesse sowie neue Denk- und Handlungsspielräume ermöglichen und unterstützen? Aus unterschiedlichen Perspektiven werden in diesem Band auch die Potenziale und Grenzen von Social Media untersucht. Diese werden dabei im Zusammenhang mit der neoliberalen Logik und kommerziellen Dominanz von Unternehmen wie z. B. Google, Microsoft oder Facebook betrachtet. Ebenfalls analysiert werden in diesem Kontext die Protestbewegung der Studierenden an der Universität Wien 2009 und die Interventionen des digital vernetzten Kollektivs Anonymous. Die Untersuchungen verweisen auf die Entwicklung neuer Repräsentations- und Identifikationspraktiken, um Freiheit, Gerechtigkeit und Demokratie einzufordern.
