DHQ Article published

I am working on a series of articles which trace digital humanities as a project, and now the first one has been published by Digital Humanities Quarterly (currently preview version, will be updated shortly). It is titled “Humanities Computing as Digital Humanities”, and here I look at the discursive transition from humanities computing to digital humanities, exploring how this naming is related to shifts in institutional, disciplinary and social organization. I also address the epistemic culture and commitments of humanities computing, and tensions between this tradition and a broad notion of digital humanities.

All in all, this is a large (and fun) project, and something I have been working on for quite some time. I have three more articles to go, but they are well along, and I hope to have the whole series ready (at my end) by early January. The provisional titles for the rest of the articles are: The Landscape of the Digital Humanities (2), From Optical Fiber to Conceptual Cyberinfrastructure for the Humanities (3) and Envisioning the Digital Humanities (4).
