The latest installment of a digital humanities bellwether

Contending with recent developments like the shocking 2016 U.S. Presidential election, the radical transformation of the social web, and passionate debates about the future of data in higher education, Debates in the Digital Humanities 2019 brings together a broad array of important, thought-provoking perspectives on the field’s many sides. With a wide range of subjects including gender-based assumptions made by algorithms, the place of the digital humanities within art history, data-based methods for exhuming forgotten histories, video games, three-dimensional printing, and decolonial work, this book assembles a who’s who of the field in more than thirty impactful essays.

Praise For…

"Ten years ago I asked what digital humanities was and what it was doing in English departments. This volume reveals the limits of that question—disciplinarily, methodologically, politically, and imaginatively. The Debates in the Digital Humanities series continues to define the field in the most expansive and provocative ways possible."—Matthew Kirschenbaum, University of Maryland

"This latest installment in the Debates in the Digital Humanities series continues the important work of prising open computational black boxes and of connecting code to culture. The essays collected here are sharp, smart, and political as they tackle crucial issues of race, gender, sexuality, affect, ethics, and more. They also point the way toward a more vibrant and inclusive Digital Humanities."—Tara McPherson, author of Feminist in a Software Lab: Difference + Design
