Description

This panel theorizes the digital humanities [DH] through four papers that address archives, literacy, techne, and manuscripts. DH is a field filled with early period specialists. From digitization efforts and quantitative methods to social media-based public scholarship, medievalists have long stood at the forefront of digital initiatives. DH, moreover, has been more associated with questions of methodology and praxis than theory. This suggests a great need for work that theorizes DH within and beyond the context of Medieval Studies. - Corey Sparks, CSU-Chico
