Editors Matthew K. Gold (The Graduate Center, CUNY) and Lauren F. Klein (Georgia Institute of Technology) have released the revised edition of Debates in the Digital Humanities.
Pairing full-length scholarly essays with shorter pieces drawn from scholarly blogs and conference presentations, as well as commissioned interviews and position statements, Debates in the Digital Humanities 2016 reveals a dynamic view of a field in negotiation with its identity, methods, and reach. Pieces in the book explore how DH can and must change in response to social justice movements and events like #Ferguson; how DH alters and is altered by community college classrooms; and how scholars applying DH approaches to feminist studies, queer studies, and black studies might reframe the commitments of DH analysts.
Like its 2013 predecessor, the new open-access digital edition of the volume allows for readers to annotate, share, and contribute.
The dh+lib audience may be particularly interested in Jonathan Senchyne’s chapter “Between Knowledge and Metaknowledge: Shifting Disciplinary Borders in Digital Humanities and Library and Information Studies.”
