Teaching Digital Humanities with Analog Tools: Word Clouds and Text Mining | Kalani Craig

Teaching Digital Humanities with Analog Tools: Word Clouds and Text Mining | Kalani Craig | Digital Humanities | Scoop.it
Jan Molendijk's insight:

Who said that you can't use a blackboard to visualise word frequencies in a text? You might actually engage students more than by automatically counting words in a digital text file - at least they have to read the text. Plus thus can be used for handwritten texts as well...

The clouds are still enhancing insight.

Exhibition displays some of world’s oldest Biblical papyri
Jan Molendijk's insight:

Important newly digitized documents: some of the oldest known copies of portions of the Christian New Testament. They are from the Second Century CE, so very close to Paul's invention of Christianity.

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."

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

sandra alvaro's curator insight, March 31, 2014 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.
