Sunday, March 16, 2014 - 10:02pm
The MLA Discussion Group on Computer Studies of Languages and Literature

The descriptor "digital humanities" was first used in an ad in the MLA Job Information List in 2000 (Ridolfo, 2014).

Faulkner and Yoknapatawpha conference, University of Mississippi

His artistic forays into print culture, in other words, began far from the world of highbrow literary publishing with which he is usually associated—the world of New York publishing houses like Boni and Liveright or Random House and little magazines like THE DOUBLE-DEALER—though with time they would come to encompass that world as well.
