Digital Humanities Discussion Reflections

Revisiting my previous post and the class discussions on digital humanities, I felt like I touched on most of the ideas on this blog: curators as respected scholars, collaboration, openness. There were also a few ideas that I touched on but didn’t realize their importance until the discussion: authorship (and students’ part in this) and print into digital. This last, the challenging of textuality and print as primary, now seems highly relevant and important, with its transitioning return to both visualization and orality. In particular, this oral tradition is performative, in the moment, and no longer as permanent as humanities scholars are generally used to. These are new ideas that we will have to work with in this digital age, continually revisiting and reviewing our methods and interpretations of digital humanities scholarship in the coming years.
