Summary
  • Advancing Digital Humanities moves beyond definition of this dynamic and fast growing field to show how its arguments, analyses, findings and theories are pioneering new directions in the humanities globally.
  • 'Advancing Digital Humanities is essential reading for those considering the future of our interdiscipline." - Professor Ray Siemens, Canada Research Chair in Humanities Computing, University of Victoria, BC, Canada 'Defining Digital Humanities by what it does rather than wrestling with definitions of what it is, the essays in this vibrant anthology are reports of substantive engagements with the intellectual dimensions of technological tools. Each project in this collection starts from research in a core humanities discipline-literature, history, cultural studies-and extends its questions of style, authorship, influence, production and reception practices through digital means. An excellent volume for those new to the field as well as insiders, each of whom will take away something of value from the carefully crafted insights of these essays.' - Johanna Drucker, Breslauer Professor of Bibliography, Information Studies, UCLA, USA 'This collection of essays is an essential travel guide for anyone who wishes to venture into the varied, complex and challenging intellectual terrain of the digital humanities. The volume moves discussion of digital humanities beyond arid debates about the definition of the field and illustrates the wider theoretical and cultural vistas that the digital humanities are opening up. This compelling collection of thought-provoking essays vividly illustrates how humanities scholars are using digital methods to refashion our cultural understanding and transform representations of knowledge across subjects ranging from Dickens to the Twittersphere. The contributors include not only some of the most distinguished international scholars in the field, but also young researchers engaged in innovative experimentation at the digital coalface, and their energy, diversity and intellectual ambition make this volume a captivating read. Advancing Digital Humanities is a fundamental and unmissable contribution to the intellectual and theoretical formation of this important new area of scholarly endeavour.' - Andrew Prescott, Professor of Digital Humanities and Head, Department of Digital Humanities, King's College London, UK

Summary expansion
Advancing Digital Humanities moves beyond definition of this dynamic and fast-growing field to show how its arguments, analyses, findings, and theories are pioneering new directions in the humanities globally. Contributions cover digital methods, critical curation, and research futures, with theoretical and practical chapters framed around key areas of activity, including modelling collections, data-driven analysis, and thinking through building. These are linked through the concept of 'ambitious generosity', a way of working to pursue large-scale research questions while supporting and enabling other research areas and approaches, both within and beyond the academy
