RESOURCE: Digital Scholarship and Digital Studies: The State of the Discipline

Sarah Werner (Folger Shakespeare Library) has shared the online pdf of the paper she co-wrote with Matthew Kirschenbaum (MITH) for the journal¬†Book History, titled “Digital Scholarship and Digital Studies: The State of the Discipline.”¬†Reflecting on her blog, Werner writes that:

¬†Our¬†review essay, ‚ÄúDigital Scholarship and Digital Studies,‚ÄĚ takes as its argument our belief that¬†book historians are already using digital tools and that current book production and reception is inextricably tied to digital methods… Matt and I feel strongly that the disciplines of book history and digital studies have much in common already and that these fields must work together to build strong futures for them both.¬†We are all already hybrid, whether we‚Äôre¬†studying the circulation of the earliest printed English books or the latest Jonathan Franzen novel or The F***ing Epic Twitter Quest of @MayorEmanuel.
