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 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.

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.

In E-Crit, Marcel O'Gorman takes an ambitious and provocative look at how university scholarship, pedagogy, and curricula might be transformed to suit a digital culture. Arguing that universities were founded on the logic of print culture, O'Gorman sets out to reinvent the academic apparatus, constructing a hybrid methodology that draws on avant-garde art, deconstructive theory, cognitive science, and the work of painter and poet William Blake. O'Gorman explores the ways in which digital media might help to restore the critical, intellectual purpose of higher education, which has been repressed by the technocratic structures that dominate the modern university. He argues that the revolutionary, socio-critical impetus that spurred deconstructive theory and transformed the humanities was lost in the initial attempts to digitize the literary canon and demonstrate the convergence of critical theory and hypertext. Humanities disciplines, he argues, must reposition themselves through the invention of humanities-based interdisciplinary programs capable of adapting to the post-print vicissitudes of a digital culture. E-Crit is thus essential reading for anyone concerned with the practice - and future - of the humanities in higher education.

"The figure of the guerrilla appears in digital humanities' (DH) recent history as an agent of tactical reformation. It refers to various disciplinary desires: a claim to collaborative and inclusive pedagogy, minimal and encrypted computing, and a host of political interventions such as queer politics, critical race studies, and feminist theory. Drawing out the political, ontological, and technological underpinnings of the guerrilla as a figure, this text connects popular iterations of its practice to DH's political rhetoric and infrastructure. By doing so, it reorients DH's conceptual lexicon around practices of collective becoming, mediated by claims to conflict, antagonism, and democratic will. The introduction and chapter one pair a theory-driven analysis of DH's minoritarian interventions alongside contemporary political theory by focusing on Michael Hardt and Antonio Negri's radical democratic ingresses into network theory. These chapters also explore work by thinkers formative of #transformDH like Moya Bailey, Natalia Cecire, and others. Chapters two, three, and four connect post/decolonial, feminist, and Marxist iterations of DH praxis to the aesthetic histories of actually existing guerrilla movements (Latin American Third Cinema, Black Mask's anti-representational politics, and the documentary cinema of the Black Panther Party). All three chapters balance guerrilla history and DH method by exploring their common concepts: critical/politicized acts of making, representational and anti-representational politics, and the production of the common. "Guerilla Theory's" conclusion offers a concept of digital humanities as a form of critical university studies, challenging DH's current political scope, and thus its future institutional impact."--Provided by publisher.

There has been an explosion in the creation and use of digital media over the past quarter century and in particular over the past decade. As the varieties of digital media multiply, scholars are beginning to examine its origins, organization, and preservation, which present new challenges compared to the organization and preservation of traditional media such as books, papers, films, photographs, music scores, and works of art. In order to examine from multiple perspectives issues related to history, preservation, and ontology of digital media, editors of this volume organized an invitation-only workshop on digital media. The participants were carefully chosen to represent a variety of backgrounds and perspectives, ranging from humanities to informationstudies to technology to history to communication theory to fine arts. The book is organized in four parts, each representing a different perspective on digital media: preservation, interaction, organization, and history. The preservation section considers the problems of archiving digital media for long-term preservation. Many digital objects are readily copied but are fragile and not designed for preservation, and this nature of digital objects provides both challenges and opportunities for adapting archival practice. The remaining sections look at the interaction between technological changes and cultural practices, the organization of digital media, and the history of digital media and how technology has changed over time. The wealth of varied perspectives collected together in this volume provides new light on the topic of digital media.

A wide-ranging, interconnected anthology presents a diversity of feminist contributions to digital humanities In recent years, the digital humanities has been shaken by important debates about inclusivity and scope—but what change will these conversations ultimately bring about? Can the digital humanities complicate the basic assumptions of tech culture, or will this body of scholarship and practices simply reinforce preexisting biases? Bodies of Information addresses this crucial question by assembling a varied group of leading voices, showcasing feminist contributions to a panoply of topics, including ubiquitous computing, game studies, new materialisms, and cultural phenomena like hashtag activism, hacktivism, and campaigns against online misogyny. Taking intersectional feminism as the starting point for doing digital humanities, Bodies of Information is diverse in discipline, identity, location, and method. Helpfully organized around keywords of materiality, values, embodiment, affect, labor, and situatedness, this comprehensive volume is ideal for classrooms. And with its multiplicity of viewpoints and arguments, it’s also an important addition to the evolving conversations around one of the fastest growing fields in the academy.
