  • Humanities infrastructure

  • Epilogue : Making December events.
Big Digital Humanities has its origins in a series of seminal articles Patrik Svensson published in the Digital Humanities Quarterly between 2009 and 2012. As these articles were coming out, enthusiasm around Digital Humanities was acquiring a great deal of momentum and significant disagreement about what did or didn't "count" as Digital Humanities work. Svensson's articles provided a widely sought after omnibus of Digital Humanities history, practice, and theory. They were informative and knowledgeable and tended to foreground reportage and explanation rather than utopianism or territorial contentiousness. In revising his original work for book publication, Svensson has responded to both subsequent feedback and new developments. Svensson's own unique perspective and special stake in the Digital Humanities conversation come from his role as Director of the HUMlab at Umea University. HUMlab is a unique collaborative space and Digital Humanities center, which officially opened its doors in 2000. According to its own official description, the HUMlab is an open, creative studio environment where "students, researchers, artists, entrepreneurs and international guests come together to engage in dialogue, experiment with technology, take on challenges and move scholarship forward." It is this last element "moving scholarship forward" that Svensson argues is the real opportunity in what he terms the "big digital humanities, " or digital humanities as practiced in collaborative spaces like the HUMlab, and he is uniquely positioned to take an account of this evolving dimension of Digital Humanities practice.

Encyclopaedic knowledge - factual knowledge of the divine and human worlds - had profound effects on intellectual activities in the early Middle Ages and its aftermath. Authors and scribes were raised in an intellectual and didactic tradition in which the acquisition and development of encyclopaedic knowledge was highly valued. Their concern with the elementary aspects of time, language, world history, God's creation and the Bible informed their activities as compilers of manuscripts or as producers of texts. They reaped the fruits of the learning that had grown over the centuries, digested them, or discarded them, or caused them to re-emerge after a long period of time and be used for purposes quite different from those for which they had originally been cultivated. The varieties of such fruit are as diverse as encyclopaedic learning itself, involving musicology, epistolography, liturgy, the study of grammar, codicology, the establishment of reading programmes, the writing of history and, perhaps most prominently, the compilation and promulgation of glosses and glossaries - one of the most essential disciplines in early medieval learning. The present volume casts light on the way in which encyclopaedic knowledge came to fruition in the ever expanding and diversifying world of medieval learning. Resulting from the fourth workshop in the 'Storehouses of Wholesome Learning' project, it builds on the foundations laid by its predecessors. The contributors discuss the influence of encyclopaedic knowledge in their respective fields of expertise. Their generous responses have provided a rich palette of new insights into medieval intellectual culture. Their articles deepen our understanding of medieval learning in its ability to instrumentalise the knowledge inherited from the classical world in the creation of new cultures of wisdom.

The image of the scholar as a solitary thinker dates back at least to Descartes' Discourse on Method. But scholarly practices in the humanities are changing as older forms of communal inquiry are combined with modern research methods enabled by the Internet, accessible computing, data availability, and new media. Hermeneutica introduces text analysis using computer-assisted interpretive practices. It offers theoretical chapters about text analysis, presents a set of analytical tools (called Voyant) that instantiate the theory, and provides example essays that illustrate the use of these tools. Voyant allows users to integrate interpretation into texts by creating hermeneutica -- small embeddable "toys" that can be woven into essays published online or into such online writing environments as blogs or wikis. The book's companion website,, offers the example essays with both text and embedded interactive panels. The panels show results and allow readers to experiment with the toys themselves. The use of these analytical tools results in a hybrid essay: an interpretive work embedded with hermeneutical toys that can be explored for technique. The hermeneutica draw on and develop such common interactive analytics as word clouds and complex data journalism interactives. Embedded in scholarly texts, they create a more engaging argument. Moving between tool and text becomes another thread in a dynamic dialogue.

In Pirate Philosophy, Gary Hall considers whether the fight against the neoliberal corporatization of higher education in fact requires scholars to transform their own lives and labor. Is there a way for philosophers and theorists to act not just for or with the antiausterity and student protestors -- "graduates without a future" -- but in terms of their political struggles? Drawing on such phenomena as peer-to-peer file sharing and anticopyright/pro-piracy movements, Hall explores how those in academia can move beyond finding new ways of thinking about the world to find instead new ways of being theorists and philosophers in the world. Hall describes the politics of online sharing, the battles against the current intellectual property regime, and the actions of Anonymous, LulzSec, Aaron Swartz, and others, and he explains Creative Commons and the open access, open source, and free software movements. But in the heart of the book he considers how, when it comes to scholarly ways of creating, performing, and sharing knowledge, philosophers and theorists can challenge not just the neoliberal model of the entrepreneurial academic but also the traditional humanist model with its received ideas of proprietorial authorship, the book, originality, fixity, and the finished object. In other words, can scholars and students today become something like pirate philosophers?

Digital Humanities has become one of the new domains of academe at the interface of technological development, epistemological change, and methodological concerns. This volume explores how digital material might be read or utilized in research, whether that material is digitally born as fanfiction, for example, mostly is, or transposed from other sources. The volume asks questions such as what happens when text is transformed from printed into digital matter, and how that impacts on the methods we bring to bear on exploring that technologized matter, for example in the case of digital editions. Issues such as how to analyse visual material in digital archives or Twitter feeds, how to engage in data mining, what it means to undertake crowd-sourcing, big data, and what digital network analyses can tell us about online interactions are dealt with. This will give Humanities researchers ideas for doing digitally based research and also suggest ways of engaging with new digital research methods.

"Au commencement était la source... Puis vinrent les difficultés. Chaque source pose en effet des problèmes spécifiques. Le présent recueil, issu de deux journées d'étude organisées à l'Institut catholique d'études supérieures (La Roche-sur-Yon), s'efforce d'en brosser un panorama, à partir de cas relevant de disciplines, de périodes et de corpus suffisamment variés pour présenter au chercheur en sciences humaines une vue générale des questions que suscitent ses propres pratiques en lien avec de telles sources. A la lumière de ces études, des questions récurrentes déterminent la recherche documentaire : ce que sont les sources, par quel examen critique les évaluer, comment les organiser, enfin comment élaborer un récit scientifique fidèle, autant que possible, à leurs enseignements. La source est-elle intègre, authentique, sincère, représentative ? Son témoignage, parfois polémique, est lacunaire aussi, parce que séparé de la culture dans laquelle il s'intégrait et que cherche à reconstituer le chercheur, à la manière d'un puzzle dont il ne subsisterait que quelques pièces. La critique des sources navigue entre une lecture littérale et une lecture hypercritique. Cette dernière risque de disqualifier par principe tout récit historien fondé sur des sources qui ne seraient jugées ni sûres, ni vérifiables, ni exploitables, comme les récits légendaires de la fondation de Rome. L'esprit critique, pourtant nécessaire à la déontologie scientifique, peut paralyser le discours savant quand il est systématisé. Mais comment apprécier un degré approprié de critique et un degré excessif ? La question des sources en vient donc à en ouvrir une autre, une interrogation de nature épistémologique et philosophique : comment fonder le savoir ?"--Page 4 of cover.

Amongst Digital Humanists brings an ethnographic account of the changing landscape of humanities scholarship as it affects individual scholars, academic fields and institutions, and argues for a pluralistic vision of digital knowledge production in the humanities. Based on fieldwork conducted at twenty-three academic and funding institutions in the US and Europe and on interviews with researchers, students, librarians, web developers, policy makers, and funders, this study shows how digital technologies transform the ways humanists envision, carry out, communicate, and organize their work and approach their objects of inquiry.

Between Humanities and the Digital offers an expansive vision of how the humanities engage with digital and information technology, providing a range of perspectives on a quickly evolving, contested, and exciting field. It documents the multiplicity of ways that humanities scholars have turned increasingly to digital and information technology as both a scholarly tool and a cultural object in need of analysis. The contributors explore the state of the art in digital humanities from varied disciplinary perspectives, offer a sample of digitally inflected work that ranges from an analysis of computational literature to the collaborative development of a "Global Middle Ages" humanities platform, and examine new models for knowledge production and infrastructure. Their contributions show not only that the digital has prompted the humanities to move beyond traditional scholarly horizons, but also that the humanities have pushed the digital to become more than a narrowly technical application.

"Notwithstanding their differing approaches-digital, archival, historical, iterative, critical, creative, reflective-the essays gathered here articulate new ways of seeing, investigating, and apprehending literature and culture." - From the Preface This collection of essays enriches digital humanities research by examining various Canadian cultural works and the advances in technologies that facilitate these interdisciplinary collaborations. Fourteen essays-eleven in English and three in French-survey the helix of place and space. Contributors to Part I chart new archival and storytelling methodologies, while those in Part II venture forth to explore specific cultural and literary texts. Cultural Mapping and the Digital Sphere will serve as an indispensable road map for researchers and those interested in the digital humanities, women's writing, and Canadian culture and literature.

The Digital Humanities is a comprehensive introduction and practical guide to how humanists use the digital to conduct research, organize materials, analyze, and publish findings. It summarizes the turn toward the digital that is reinventing every aspect of the humanities among scholars, libraries, publishers, administrators, and the public. Beginning with some definitions and a brief historical survey of the humanities, the book examines how humanists work, what they study, and how humanists and their research have been impacted by the digital and how, in turn, they shape it. It surveys digital humanities tools and their functions, the digital humanists' environments, and the outcomes and reception of their work. The book pays particular attention to both theoretical underpinnings and practical considerations for embarking on digital humanities projects. It places the digital humanities firmly within the historical traditions of the humanities and in the contexts of current academic and scholarly life.

"L'érudition renvoie à la collecte, à la lecture et à l'exploitation des sources. Pendant quinze siècles, du IIIe au XVIIIe siècle, dans l'Europe de culture gréco-latine et au Proche-Orient, les érudits ont abondamment puisé dans les écrits des Anciens, mais loin d'être de simples compilateurs, ils s'appropriaient les écrits qu'ils citaient, s'efforçaient de les rendre accessibles à leurs lecteurs et les mettaient au service d'un projet pédagogique ou intellectuel cohérent. Les écrits des érudits renseignent sur leur manière de travailler et sur les objectifs qu'ils poursuivaient. L'érudition fut-elle neutre ? Avait-elle pour seule mission de diffuser des savoirs et d'accroître la connaissance dans différentes disciplines? Quels que fussent ses objectifs, elle reposait sur des pratiques que l'on retrouve pendant quinze siècles : l'apprentissage de langues étrangères, l'emprunt, de manuscrits, le recours constant à la correspondance. Les aspects matériels de l'érudition sont un aspect important de la vie intellectuelle. Le travail effectué dans les scriptoria, la mise au point d'index et de tables des matières, la publication de lieux communs aidèrent les savants dans leurs recherches. Au XVIIIe siècle, la figure de l'honnête homme, qui supplanta celle de l'érudit, posa des problèmes spécifiques aux éditeurs qui durent mettre en oeuvre de nouvelles stratégies pour minimiser les risques que leur posaient les livres érudits. À côté des savants et des humanistes reconnus, des hommes et des femmes participaient à la vie intellectuelle de leur époque, sans rédiger d'oeuvres majeures. Membres de réseaux de correspondants, vulgarisateurs éclairés, lecteurs attentifs, ils contribuaient à la diffusion de la culture savante en enseignant, en encourageant la vie de l'esprit et en faisant connaître par leurs écrits les idées nouvelles."--P.

Evaluation examines policies and programs across every arena of human endeavor, from efforts to stop the spread of HIV/AIDS to programs that drive national science policy. Relying on a vast array of methods, from qualitative interviewing to econometrics, it is a "transdiscipline, " as opposed to a formal area of academic study. Accounting for these challenges, "Evaluation Foundations Revisited" offers an introduction for those seeking to better understand Evaluation as a professional field. While the acquisition of methods and methodologies to meet the needs of certain projects is important, the foundation of evaluative practice rests on understanding complex issues to balance. "Evaluation Foundations Revisited" is an invitation to examine the intellectual, practical, and philosophical nexus that lies at the heart of evaluation. Thomas A. Schwandt shows how to critically engage with the assumptions that underlie how evaluators define and position their work, as well as how they argue for the usefulness of evaluation in society. He looks at issues such as the role of theory, how notions of value and valuing are understood, how evidence is used, how evaluation is related to politics, and what comprises scientific integrity. By coming to better understand the foundations of evaluation, readers will develop what Schwandt terms "a life of the mind of practice, " which enables evaluators to draw on a more holistic view to develop reasoned arguments and well fitted techniques.
