Bloomsbury publishes its Handbook to the Digital Humanities
The Bloomsbury Handbook to the Digital Humanities, edited by Dr James O'Sullivan from the Department of Digital Humanities at UCC, has been published.
The collection reconsiders key debates, methods, possibilities, and failings from across the digital humanities, offering a timely interrogation of the present and future of the arts and humanities in the digital age.
Comprising 43 essays from some of the field's leading scholars and practitioners, this comprehensive collection examines, among its many subjects, the emergence and ongoing development of DH, postcolonial digital humanities, feminist digital humanities, race and DH, multilingual digital humanities, media studies as DH, the failings of DH, critical digital humanities, the future of text encoding, cultural analytics, natural language processing, open access and digital publishing, digital cultural heritage, archiving and editing, sustainability, DH pedagogy, labour, artificial intelligence, the cultural economy, and the role of the digital humanities in climate change.
A number of scholars from UCC's College of Arts, Celtic Studies & Social Sciences contributed to the volume: Dr Pedro Nilsson-Fernàndez from the Department of Spanish, Portuguese & Latin American Studies co-authored "Multilingual Digital Humanities"; Shawn Day from the Department of Digital Humanities wrote "Visualising Humanities Data"; Dr Patrick Egan and Dr Órla Murphy, again from Digital Humanities, collaborated on an essay entitled "Sharing as CARE and FAIR in the Digital Humanities"; while Prof. Graham Allen and Dr Jennifer DeBie contributed "Digital Humanities in the Age of Extinction".
