European Digital Humanities
From The Scout Report, May 17, 2013:
The European Association for Digital Humanities http://www.allc.org
"The European Association for Digital Humanities provides umbrella support for a range of professional organizations and institutions that maintain digital projects about European history and culture. The group was founded in 1973 with the purpose of supporting "the application of computing in the study of language and literature." On the homepage, visitors can browse through nine sections, including Elections, Publications, and Education.
The Publications area is a great place to start, as it includes access to the astute "Digital Humanities Quarterly," which is an open-access, peer-reviewed journal covering all aspects of digital media. The Education area has a great section titled DH Curricula & Syllabi. Here educators can look over a clutch of digital humanities syllabi contributed by the City University of New York and individual professors. Additionally, the site includes information about the operations of the organization, complete with contact information." [KMG]
"The Humanites, Done Digitally," by Kathleen Fitzpatrick (May 2011)
"... The state of things in digital humanities today rests in that creative tension, between those who've been in the field for a long time and those who are coming to it today, between disciplinarity and interdisciplinarity, between making and interpreting, between the field's history and its future. Scholarly work across the humanities, as in all academic fields, is increasingly being done digitally. The particular contribution of the digital humanities, however, lies in its exploration of the difference that the digital can make to the kinds of work that we do, as well as to the ways that we communicate with one another. These new modes of scholarship and communication will best flourish if they, like the digital humanities, are allowed to remain plural."
