Debates in the Digital Humanities

Debates in the Digital Humanities | Digital Humanities and Higher Ed | Scoop.it

description by The Scout Project

 

"This open access version of the printed book, Debates in the Digital Humanities, brings together a range of experts to discuss the theories, methods, and practices of the digital humanities. First released in 2012 by the University of Minnesota Press, this hybrid version has been offered to the public as new debates emerge. The site consists of four different sections, including Debates and News, and contributions are divided into five parts hailing from over two dozen different scholars. The book is quite compelling, especially the "Critiquing the Digital Humanities" section, and information scientists, humanities folks, and others will find it most engaging."

@ernestprats Thank you for posting this!

 

To provide some context about this book, here is an excerpt  from the book's editor, Matthew K. Gold, via his blog http://blog.mkgold.net/

 

"A group of scholars – from both within and outside of the field – have assembled answers to some of those questions in a volume that I have recently edited for the University of Minnesota Press titled Debates in the Digital Humanities. In that book, contributors critique the digital humanities for a series of faults: not only paying inadequate attention to race, class, gender, and sexuality, but in some cases explicitly seeking to elide cultural issues from the frame of analysis; reinforcing the traditional academic valuation of research over teaching; and allowing the seductions of information visualization to paper over differences in material contexts."

 

This was part of a talk he gave at the 2012 MLA Panel "Debates in the Digital Humanities". See more here: http://blog.mkgold.net/2012/01/10/whose-revolution-toward-a-more-equitable-digital-humanities/ ;

The digital vs. the analogue: Are we loosing something?

sandra alvaro's curator insight, March 31, 11:24 AM

Encompassing new technologies, research methods, and opportunities for collaborative scholarship and open-source peer review, as well as innovative ways of sharing knowledge and teaching, the digital humanities promises to transform the liberal arts—and perhaps the university itself.

2013 OPEN-ACCESS EDITION

Published in January 2013, the open-access edition of Debates in the Digital Humanitiesmarked not just the opening up of the printed text, but also the debut of a custom-built social reading platform. Going beyond the basic task of making the contents of the printed edition accessible, the OA platform makes the text interactive, with key features that allow readers to interact with the text by marking passages as interesting and adding terms to a crowdsourced index.

The OA platform marks a significant shift for Debates in the Digital Humanities in that it moves it from a single printed edition of collected essays to an expanded, ongoing digital publication stream that the Press plans to draw upon to publish both future editions of collection and other publications on more focused DH topics. While the first iteration of the digital platform contains only the content of the printed text, an expanded edition with new additions will appear in March 2013.

A bit of history

 

In 2013, GrinUGR – Collaboratory for digital cultures in social sciences and humanities started a research project, funded by CEI-BioTic Granada, with the purpose of capturing information about centers, projects and researchers working on Digital Humanities and Social Science. With this name we tried to include not only Humanities but all the Social Sciences approaches (as described for example as eResearch). As a result of this project, in spring 2013, GrinUGR collaborators started to collect cases worldwide and to design the infrastructure to visualize this information on a map. Around 300 cases were collected, including items in Spanish, English and other languages.

 

On June 10, 2013, on the occasion of the celebration of the Día de Humanidades Digitales en español, Élika Ortega and Silvia Gutiérrez launched a questionnaire to collect information on digital humanists (around 80 people responded to it). This initiative was called MapaHD and has been included as a chapter in a forthcoming book edited by GrinUGR and as a conference paper in the next DH Conference in Lausanne.

 

In January 2014, I proposed Elika to create a new resource titled Atlas of Digital Humanities and Social Science using the infrastructure developed by GrinUGR to develop a public database of cases following the initial aims of GrinUGR and MapaHD. As a result today, after 2 months, the Atlas includes 130 researchers, 41 projects, 15 centers and 11 different resources.

Gabby G's insight:

NEW YORK, NY.- Thomas P. Campbell, Director and CEO of The Metropolitan Museum of Art, announced today that more than 400,000 high-resolution digital images of public domain works in the Museum’s world-renowned collection may be downloaded directly from the Museum’s website for non-commercial use—including in scholarly publications in any media—without permission from the Museum and without a fee. The number of available images will increase as new digital files are added on a regular basis. In making the announcement, Mr. Campbell said: “Through this new, open-access policy, we join a growing number of museums that provide free access to images of art in the public domain. I am delighted that digital technology can open the doors to this trove of images from our encyclopedic collection.” The Metropolitan Museum’s initiative—called Open Access for Scholarly Content (OASC)—provides access to images of art in its collection that the Museum believes to be in the public domain and free of other known restrictions; these images are now available for scholarly use in any media. Works that are covered by the new policy are identified on the Museum’s website with the acronym OASC. (Certain works are not available through the initiative for one or more of the following reasons: the work is still under copyright, or the copyright status is unclear; privacy or publicity issues; the work is owned by a person or an institution other than the Metropolitan Museum; restrictions by the artist, donor, or lender; or lack of a digital image of suitable quality.) OASC was developed as a resource for students, educators, researchers, curators, academic publishers, non-commercial documentary filmmakers, and others involved in scholarly or cultural work. Prior to the establishment of OASC, the Metropolitan Museum provided images upon request, for a fee, and authorization was subject to terms and conditions.

DHSI2014 Busaries, and The Association for Computers and the Humanities (ACH): A List of Resources

Proud to see that the ACH is once again sponsoring bursaries to @DHInstitute. http://t.co/k5JwpKKKnT
Gabby G's insight:
Conferences

The annual Digital Humanities conference is the highlight of ACH's activities and a time when great numbers of the international DH community meet face-to-face. Held in alternating years in Europe and North America, the Digital Humanities conference welcomes digital humanities scholars and practitioners from a huge range of disciplines and professional areas: faculty and students, librarians, archivists, technologists, project and center directors, and many more. The conference is broadly international and interdisciplinary in scope.

DH 2014

DH2014 is jointly hosted by the University of Lausanne (UNIL) and Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL).

Contributions to the conference take a variety of forms and may be deliberately experimental: papers (long and short), posters and demos, panel discussions, and social media. Selected presentations are published as a special issue of LLC and may appear in other ADHO journals as well.

On Tuesday, the United States Senate Appropriations Committee will hold a full-committee hearing on the subject of “Driving Innovation through Federal Investments.”

Gabby G's insight:

Testifying at the hearing will be the directors of the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy, the National Institutes of Health, the National Science Foundation, and other research-oriented agencies.

 

The Association for Computers and the Humanities joins over 100 institutions and organizations in expressing to Chairwoman Mikulski and the Committee the great value of federal investment in research and development. What is special about ACH’s response is that it comes from a strong humanities perspective. Humanities investments are investments in innovation.

 

Read ACH President Bethany Nowviskie’s submitted testimony (PDF link), and seek ways to strengthen humanities voices in conversations about federal funding and policy through the National Humanities Alliance.

Call for Papers
Crossover & Transformation
The 5th International Conference of Digital Archives and Digital Humanities 2014


http://www.dadh.digital.ntu.edu.tw/index.php?LangType=en&His=EKALM
December 1-2, 2014


International Conference Hall, Humanities & Social Sciences Building (HSSB), Academia Sinica, Taipei, Taiwan

 

Introduction

Digital Humanities refers to the practice of humanities research with digital resources and information technology. The interdisciplinary nature of digital humanities enables researchers examining new methodology, defining new research issues, discovering new context between quantity data, and exploring how the humanities may evolve. The emergence of Digital Humanities has not only transformed the practice of academic research. With equally importance, digital humanities also aims to endeavor a nuanced and critical understanding of how digital technology shapes our society, inspires innovation, and creates new life style in the digital era.
This conference is thus organized to engage more researchers to participate in the ongoing dialogs that will eventually lead to encourage collective projects, to stimulate more new research themes, and ultimately to contribute to the growth and flourishing of the global research community of Digital Humanities.

Topics of interest

We invite submissions of abstracts relating (but not limited) to the following aspects of digital humanities:

1. Development of digital technologies and their applications to help advancing humanities studies (including digital media, data mining, software design, and modeling, etc.).
2. Interdisciplinary research and humanistic research in literature studies, linguistics, culture, and history that are conducted with the use of digital data or digital technology.
3. Research related to the impact of digital technologies on social, institutional, and linguistic aspects, as well as its impact on globalization and multiculturalism.
4. Innovative forms of digital arts such as music, film and theatre; and digital applications such as digital design and new media.

 

Submission Guidelines

1. The call for papers (http://www.dadh.digital.ntu.edu.tw/Call.php?LangType=en&His=EKALM ) is open for all who are interested.
2. All submissions are to be done online (website: http://www.dadh.digital.ntu.edu.tw/up_index.php?LangType=en&His=EKALM ).
3. Submitted abstracts should include title, an abstract of 1,000-3,000 words, 5 keywords, as well as the author’s name, affiliation & position, contact number, mailing address, and email.
The papers will be reviewed. Authors of accepted abstracts will be required to submit the full papers by September 30, 2014.
4. Important Dates:
Abstract Submission Deadline is midnight Taiwan time, July 1, 2014.
Notification of Acceptance will be send on July 16, 2014.
5. Publications: A Conference Proceeding will be distributed during the conference. The authors of the accepted papers will be invited to submit a revised version after the conference.
