Handbook on Digital and Public Humanities

updated: 
Tuesday, December 4, 2018 - 8:35am
Anne Schwan and Tara Thomson / Edinburgh Napier University
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, January 25, 2019

This collection seeks to bring together some of the most recent international scholarship and developments in the interdisciplinary fields of digital and public humanities. Alongside a critical exploration of the production, distribution and scholarship of culture in relation to digital media and technologies, the collection will examine the possibilities and challenges of publicly engaged scholarship in the digital humanities and beyond. Working with a broad definition of ‘public humanities’, we wish to interrogate the multifaceted interface of arts and humanities scholarship and engagement with wider ‘publics’ beyond academia, from literary and cultural heritage to creative arts and performance.

Some forecast a post-capitalist, post-scarcity economy in which employment is a sought-after luxury good. In this world, individuals have a guaranteed basic income and can freely pursue liberal studies as part of a flourishing life.    Others foresee a significant expansion of machine learning resulting in a world where wealth becomes even more highly concentrated in the hands of the machines’ owners. In that world, most individuals will eke out a living in a gig economy making use of soft skills derived from their liberal arts education. Artificial intelligence, big data, robotics, and a threat of a pervasive algorithcracy, will have profound implications for the meaning and purposes of liberal studies.
