It’s a great day for digital humanities publications. The long awaited (at least by me), Digital Humanities Pedagogy: Practices, Principles and Politics (formerly known as Teaching Digital Humanities), edited by Brett Hirsch has now been published. You can read it free online here: http://www.openbookpublishers.com/reader/161, download an electronic version for a price, or buy it in paperback or hardback. I’ve been fortunate to see drafts of articles by Matt Gold on “Looking for Whitman”, Lisa Spiro on Opening up Digital Humanities Education, and Tanya Clement on Multiliteracies. I look forward now to reading the final versions, as well as all the other pieces.
If that wasn’t enough to keep me busy, the open access version of Debates in the Digital Humanities edited by Matt Gold is also now available here http://dhdebates.gc.cuny.edu/. One feature made possible by the digital edition is sharing of highlights and feedback by readers. You can see what the hottest spots are in the text. Two new clusters of essays will also be published in 2013. The first cluster in March will include:
- Jentery Sayers on “Dropping the Digital”
- Ethan Wattrall on “Archaeology and the ‘Big Tent’ of Digital Humanities”
- A new piece by the #transformdh collective
- Michael Hancher on “Re: Search and Close Reading”
- Dennis Tenen on “Blunt Instrumentalism”
- Steven E. Jones on “The Emergence of the Digital Humanities”
- Ryan Cordell on “DH, Interdisciplinarity, and Curricular Incursion”
- Katherine D. Harris on “Digital Pedagogy: License to Screw Around”
- Mark Marino on “Why We Must Read the Code”
- A cluster of essays on DH in a global context
- Claire Warwick on “Twitter and Digital Identity”
- Jeff Rice on “Searching the Story of Billy the Kid”
Looks like plenty of reading for January!

Interest in digital humanities, digital scholarship, and digital methodologies is growing at liberal arts colleges. To monitor that growth and explore its implications for liberal arts colleges, the National Institute for Technology in Liberal Education (NITLE) is gathering information about digital humanities at small liberal arts colleges. We invite faculty, staff, administrators and others at small liberal arts colleges to complete our online survey on this topic. Please also share the survey with your colleagues. We welcome multiple results from the same institution. Any information you can provide will be appreciated, even if you cannot answer every question.
NITLE Survey on Digital Humanities at Small Liberal Arts Colleges: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/NITLEDHSurvey
Results from this survey will update the research on digital humanities at small liberal arts colleges, that went into this publication:
Alexander, Bryan, and Rebecca Frost Davis. “Should Liberal Arts Campuses Do Digital Humanities? Process and Products in the Small College World.” In Debates in the Digital Humanities, edited by Matthew K. Gold. University of Minnesota Press, 2012.
This is a research project being conducted by Rebecca Frost Davis, NITLE Program Officer for the Humanities. Your participation in this research study is voluntary and you may withdraw at any time without penalty. We anticipate that this survey will take no more than 15-20 minutes to complete.
Information from this survey will be used in the following way:
- Aggregate data will be shared with the NITLE network and published openly
- Responses indicating levels of institutional engagement in digital humanities and that would generally be available publicly, e.g., existence of a digital humanities center, courses offered, individual or institutional projects, may be shared with the NITLE network and published openly, under the names of individual institutions
- Individual responses that reflect a respondent’s opinion (qualitative responses) will not be shared, published, quoted, etc., without prior consent although aggregate information about and analysis of such responses may be shared and published
We will do our best to keep your information confidential. All data is stored in a password protected electronic format. The results of this study will be used for scholarly purposes only and may be shared with NITLE representatives.
