MLA 2011 Special Session (deadline: 3/20/2010)

Digital Humanism and English Studies

Humanism is traditionally defined as a moral philosophy that attaches primary importance to humans, to their dignity, concerns, and capabilities. What happens when we include the digital in this definition? Is "digital humanism" an oxymoron? Or is there room for reconceiving the relationship between digital computing and knowledge production—especially in, but not limited to, the discipline of English studies—in a way that harnesses human potential in the pursuit of humanistic ends? The print revolution played an essential role in the rise of Renaissance humanism. Can the spread of digital computers stimulate a digital humanism?
