Digital Humanities on Serendip
from leamirella's digital project, "Discovering Henrietta Lacks"
|The Digital Humanities constitute a paradigm shift in the field of literary studies, attending to practices and qualities in any medium, reaching beyond print in modes of inquiry, research, publication, and dissemination. In this "massive theoretical shift in textual studies," print is absorbed into new hybrid, multimodal communication practices: time-based forms (film, sound, animation), visual traditions (graphics, design), spatial practices (architecture, geography), and curatorial practices (museums, galleries).
In the digital humanities, the single most important issue is a matter of scale, which changes the amount of text, contexts, and contents of questions. Distance becomes a condition of knowledge, encouraging focus on units smaller (devices, themes, tropes) or larger (genres, systems) than the text (many thanks to Katherine Hayles for the key elements of this summary).
