Debates in the Digital Humanities

Debates in the Digital Humanities | Digital humanities | 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/ ;

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.

Report: Ours to Master - how makerspaces can help us master technology for a more human end - RSA | Digital humanities | Scoop.it
The central argument of this report is that makerspaces can help people to master technology for a more human end. In practice, this means enabling people to use and understand tools for three purposes: self-fulfilment, learning and enterprise. Making may indeed be a natural human impulse, we argue, but it is also instrumental in achieving wider life goals – a means as well as an end.

La revue tic&société est consacrée à l’analyse des rapports entre les technologies de l’information et de la communication ‎‎(TIC) et la société. Nous sollicitons les textes dans lesquels l’analyse accordera une place centrale au social. Mais ‎nous développons aussi un espace multidisciplinaire. C’est pourquoi nous sommes intéressés non seulement par les ‎approches sociologiques mais également par les approches socio-économiques, sociopolitiques, sociocognitives, ‎etc. Les contributions peuvent être, soit à dominante théorique, soit avoir un contenu principalement descriptif tout ‎en comprenant dans ce deuxième cas une dimension analytique liée à un cadre théorique.‎

luiy's curator insight, August 19, 2014 5:35 PM

Today, Luca Maria Aiello at Yahoo Labs in Barcelona, Spain, and a couple of pals, change that. They tease apart the nature of the links that form on social networks and say these atoms fall into three different categories. They also show how to extract this information automatically and then characterize the relationships according to the combination of atoms that exist between individuals. Their ultimate goal: to turn anthropology into a full-blooded subdiscipline of computer science.

 

Aiello and co used two data sets from a pair of large social networks. The first consists of over 1 million messages sent between 500,000 pairs of users of the aNobii social network, which people use to talk about books they have read. The second is a set of 100,000 anonymized user pairs who commented on each other’s photos on Flickr, sending around 2 million messages in total.

 

The team analyzes these messages based on the type of information they convey, which they divide into three groups. The first type of information is related to social status; messages displaying appreciation or announcing the creation of the social tie such as a follow or like. For example, a user might say a photograph is “an excellent shot” or say they’ve followed somebody or acknowledged attention they’ve got by thanking them for visiting a site.

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.

Topological data analysis of contagion maps for examining spreading processes on networks

Topological data analysis of contagion maps for examining spreading processes on networks | Digital humanities | Scoop.it
Social and biological contagions are influenced by the spatial embeddedness of networks. Historically, many epidemics spread as a wave across part of the Earth’s surface; however, in modern contagions long-range edges—for example, due to airline transportation or communication media—allow clusters of a contagion to appear in distant locations. Here we study the spread of contagions on networks through a methodology grounded in topological data analysis and nonlinear dimension reduction. We construct ‘contagion maps’ that use multiple contagions on a network to map the nodes as a point cloud. By analysing the topology, geometry and dimensionality of manifold structure in such point clouds, we reveal insights to aid in the modelling, forecast and control of spreading processes. Our approach highlights contagion maps also as a viable tool for inferring low-dimensional structure in networks.

The results confirm that ResearchGate is certainly well-known (see ‘Remarkable reach’, and full results online at go.nature.com/jvx7pl). More than 88% of scientists and engineers said that they were aware of it — slightly more than had heard of Google+ and Twitter — with little difference between countries. Just under half said that they visit regularly, putting the site second only to Google Scholar, and ahead of Facebook and LinkedIn. Almost 29% of regular visitors had signed up for a profile on ResearchGate in the past year.
