   schema:description ""Like most academic discourses, the Digital Humanities are a conversation in flux. Some would argue that the Digital Humanities are already a well-established field, pointing to the 20-year history of Humanities Computing. Others (me) see a new breed of academic with skills in both technology and the traditional humanities (the Platform Studies and Software Studies series), while others might indeed see this as a last gasp for the Modern Language Association's relevance. The point is that this is a conversation and, as such, various voices need to be heard. In David Goldberg and Patrik Svensson's Between Humanities and the Digital Age, more than 40 authors contribute to this discussion from a global, cross-disciplinary perspective. Describing the breadth and depth of how the humanities engage with the digital and information technology (including discipline-specific studies and perspectives, research infrastructure, innovative tools, creative expression and activist engagement), Between Humanities and the Digital 'demonstrates the diversity of research and theory building that lies between the existence of digital technologies and humanistic perspectives on knowledge generation'"--Provided by publisher."@en ;
