Mapping the Digital Humanities Community on Twitter 2015 [Network Analysis]

Mapping the Digital Humanities Community on Twitter 2015 [Network Analysis] | Digital humanities | Scoop.it
Defining digital humanities might be an endless debate if we stick to the discussion about the boundaries of this concept as an academic “discipline”. In an attempt to concretely identify this field and its actors, this paper shows that it is possible to analyse them through Twitter, a social media widely used by this “community of practice”. Based on a network analysis of 2,500 users identified as members of this movement, the visualisation of the “who’s following who?” graph allows us to highlight the structure of the network’s relationships, and identify users whose position is particular. Specifically, we show that linguistic groups are key factors to explain clustering within a network whose characteristics look similar to a small world.

Studying the Humanities Is Vital in the Information Age

Studying the Humanities Is Vital in the Information Age | Digital humanities | Scoop.it
In an era fixated with science, technology, and data, the humanities are in decline. They’re more vital than ever.
Dana Lew's insight:
... "History teaches students about the context of choices made in the past. Philosophy forces them to think about morality. Theater, literature, and film put students into the mindset of others. ...People in trouble don’t turn to regression analysis. Their souls require the fortification and the wisdom that only humanistic thinking can provide."

A Year of Digital Humanities: 54 Resources to Explore

A Year of Digital Humanities: 54 Resources to Explore | Digital humanities | Scoop.it
As every year since 2012, the Digital Humanities Awards 2015 produced a list of resources published during 2015. 54 resources were nominated by 140 people and the result of the vote (1862 voters) was made public a few days ago. As these awards are intended to be "an awareness raising activity, to help put interesting DH resources in the spotlight and engage DH users (and general public) in the work of the community", and as I personally nominated a resource (and got 2 of my blog posts nominated, thank you!), this post encourage you to browse them and discover new projects, tools and blogs!
