The Digital Humanities or a Digital Humanism

David Parry bio photo By David Parry

My essay, “The Digital Humanities or a Digital Humanism,” appears Debates in the Digital Humanities, published by the University of Minnesota Press. The volume collects essays from a range of scholars practicing “Digital Humanities” in an effort to explain this emerging field of study. My essay warns against a Digital Humanities that seeks merely to add digital tools to humanities based research, instead arguing that we allow the digital to transform the very nature of what it means to practice scholarship in the humanities.
