dc.description.abstractThe emerging field of the Digital Humanities challenges many of the assumptions and practices of the Traditional Humanities. For those who are developing digital tools, resources, archives, and text and data mining algorithms, digital practices and theory mutually inform and modify each other. This talk will explore the implications of these changes and synthesize the results of nearly twenty interviews with scholars prominent in the Digital Humanities (including our own Jay Bolter). N.
