Synopsis

Digital technologies and new media are changing the nature of research, teaching, and learning in humanities. Interdisciplining Digital Humanities sorts through definitions and patterns of practice over roughly 65 years of work, providing an overview for specialists and the general audience alike. It depicts both the ways this new field is being situated within individual domains and dynamic cross-fertilizations that are fostering new relationships across academic boundaries. It also accounts for digital reinvigorations of "public humanities" in cultural heritage institutions of museums, archives, libraries, and community forums.

This volume is ideal for a wide audience interested in the digital humanities, from a literary studies scholar designing a digital collection for one author, an anthropologist or historian creating a computer visualization of a site, a musical instructor mapping sound patterns in the canon of a composer, an artist mounting a multimodal installation, a foreign language professor producing a digital archive of a period, a women's studies scholar researching the relationship of the body and technology, to a librarian building an online research guide to the field. Understanding its contours will enable them to situate their activities within its large expanse while sharpening their understanding of interdisciplinarity.
