New and Newly Accessible Publications in Digital Humanities

January 4, 2013 § Leave a comment

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:, 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 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!

DHNow Hangout

Last week Digital Humanities Now (@dhnow) was relaunched.  This experiment in how we evaluate scholarship begs the question, how will our colleagues outside the digital humanities evaluate our digital work?  How can we make our work legible to them? This was the subject of yesterday’s impromptu videoconference discussion.

I was joined by Joan Fragaszy Troyano, Managing Editor and Sasha Boni, Editor, Digital Humanities Now, as well as Ryan Cordell, Assistant Professor of English at St. Norbert College and a member of NITLE’s Digital Humanities CouncilGabriel Hankins, University of Virginia Scholars’ Lab Fellow; and Chris Dickman, Ph.D. candidate in English Composition and Rhetoric at Saint Louis University, and co-organizer of THATCamp Pedagogy. « Read the rest of this entry »
