Computation and the Humanities
30 May 2018
By Julianne Nyhan and Andrew Flinn This book addresses the application of computing to cultural heritage and the discipline of Digital Humanities that formed around it.
By taking an oral history approach, this book explores questions like, among others, researchers' earliest memories of encountering computers and the factors that subsequently prompted them to use the computer in Humanities research.
Computation and the Humanities will be an essential read for cultural and computing historians, digital humanists and those interested in developments like the digitisation of cultural heritage and artefacts.
