Digital_Humanities (MIT Press)

Description: 

Collaboratively authored by Anne Burdock, Johanna Drucker, Peter Lunenfeld, Todd Presner, and Jeffrey Schnapp, Digital_Humanities "is a compact, game-changing report on the state of contemporary knowledge production." This publication works towards answering the question "what is digital humanities" by providing an extensive examination of the field. This "visually compelling volume explores methodologies and techniques unfamiliar to traditional modes of humanistic inquiry--including geospatial analysis, data mining, corpus linguistics, visualization, and simulation--to show their relevance for contemporary culture". Digital_Humanities provides an overview and a toolkit t anyone involved in digital humanities works. "The authors argue that the digital humanities offers a revitalization of the liberal arts tradition in the electronically inflected, design-driven, multimedia language of the twenty-first century".
