Digital humanities

Digital humanities
The Digital Humanities are an area of research, teaching, and creation concerned with the intersection of computing and the disciplines of the humanities. Developing from the fields of humanities computing, humanistic computing,[2] and digital humanities praxis (dh praxis[3]) digital humanities embrace a variety of topics, from curating online collections to data mining large cultural data sets. Digital humanities (often abbreviated DH) currently incorporate both digitized and born-digital materials and combine the methodologies from traditional humanities disciplines (such as history, philosophy, linguistics, literature, art, archaeology, music, and cultural studies) and social sciences [4] with tools provided by computing (such as data visualisation, information retrieval, data mining, statistics, text mining) and digital publishing. Objectives[edit] A growing number of researchers in digital humanities are using computational methods for the analysis of large cultural data sets.

Reading in a Digital Age: an article by Sven Birkerts Essays - Spring 2010 Print Notes on why the novel and the Internet are opposites, and why the latter both undermines the former and makes it more necessary By Sven Birkerts Attend An ODH Funded Institute Digital Humanities Data Curation As the materials and analytical practices of humanities research become increasingly digital, the theoretical knowledge and practical skills of information science, librarianship, and archival science- which come together in the research, and practice of data curation - will become more vital to humanists.

Ask any language scholar and they will effectively say the same thing when you look at things in the right context. Technology and the novel, from Blake to Ballard There's a scene in Don Quixote where the deluded would-be knight is listening to fulling mills. This is not the famous windmill scene: in that one, the machines are clearly visible; this one, by contrast, takes place in pitch-black night. Quixote, struck by the mills' rhythmic metallic clankings, persuades himself that they are the half-articulated groans and snarls of monsters. He's wrong, of course: they're mills. But then again, perhaps, in the way madmen sometimes are, he's right.

Why Study Latin - Advantages of Studying Latin Erras, mi Lucili, si existimas nostri saeculi esse vitium luxuriam et neglegentiam boni moris et alia, quae obiecit suis quisque temporibus; hominum sunt ista, non temporum.
