Editorial Reviews

Review

"Is there such a thing as ‘digital’ humanities? From statistical crunches of texts to new forms of online collaboration and peer review, it’s clear something is happening. This book is an excellent primer on the arguments over just how much is changing—and how much more ought to—in the way scholars study the humanities." —Clive Thompson, columnist for Wired and contributing writer for the New York Times Magazine



 "I look forward to the day when anxieties about the disruptive nature of ‘digital humanities’ fade into memory and the innovative methods, theories, and approaches championed by those who have contributed to this valuable volume are respected across academia for their rigor and utility. This book will go a long way toward clarifying the debates within and about digital humanities." —Siva Vaidhyanathan, author of The Googlization of Everything—and Why We Should Worry



"Though Debates in the Digital Humanities is well over 500 pages in length, there is no fat in it; all essays contain important information and concepts relating to DH.  Taken together, the book as a whole and every essay in it is a must-read for anyone who claims to be a digital humanist whether she or he works in theory, pedagogy, and/or practice." —Leonardo Reviews

Excellent review of the history, definitions, and controversies in the still emerging field of the Digital Humanities. I found it especially helpful in clarifying what the first steps in developing such a program at our college should be. Can't recommend it highly enough for those who are trying to acquaint themselves with the field, especially with regard to what to keep in mind for developing effective pedagogy. The chapter on liberal arts colleges was especially helpful and pulled no punches.
