Understanding Digital Humanities (Palgrave)


Understanding Digital Humanities "discusses the implications and applications of" the computational turn in methods and techniques used in Arts and Humanities research. "Key researchers in the field provide a comprehensive introduction to important debates surrounding issues such as the contrast between narrative versus database, pattern-matching versus hermeneutics, and the statistical paradigm versus the data mining paradigm. Also discussed are the new forms of collaboration within the Arts and Humanities that are raised through modular research teams and new organisational structures, as well as techniques for collaborating in an interdisciplinary way".
