Digital_Humanities is a compact, game-changing report on the state of contemporary knowledge production. Answering the question "Whatis digital humanities?," it provides an in-depth examination of an emerging field. This collaboratively authored and visually compelling volume explores methodologies and techniques unfamiliar to traditional modes of humanistic inquiry -- including geospatial analysis, data mining, corpus linguistics, visualization, and simulation -- to show their relevance for contemporary culture. Written by five leading practitioner-theorists whose varied backgrounds embody the intellectual and creative diversity of the field,Digital_Humanities is a vision statement for the future, an invitation to engage, and a critical tool for understanding the shape of new scholarship.
