Problems and Solutions for Modernist Digital Humanities. MSA 15 (Nov 6-9, 2014, Pittsburgh, PA)

Monday, January 27, 2014 - 12:49pm
Shawna Ross

With its textually diverse and expanding canon, its relative immunity to copyright problems, its attention to formal qualities, and its following of academics dedicated to "making it new," modernism has attracted perhaps a disproportionate amount of attention from digital humanists. As a result, modernist digital scholarship and pedagogy can provide an ideal stage for hypothesizing best practices at a time when the digital humanities is still, from an institutional standpoint, very much in transition from the "next big thing" to a staple feature of the humanities.

I would read accounts of so-called battles I had been in, and they had no relation whatever to what had happened. So I began to perceive that anything written was fiction to various degrees. The whole subject – the difference between actuality and representation – was an interesting one. And that's what brought me to literature in the first place.
