About this book


Amongst Digital Humanists brings an ethnographic account of the changing landscape of humanities scholarship as it affects individual scholars, academic fields and institutions, and argues for a pluralistic vision of digital knowledge production in the humanities. Based on fieldwork conducted at twenty-three academic and funding institutions in the US and Europe and on interviews with researchers, students, librarians, web developers, policy makers, and funders, this study shows how digital technologies transform the ways humanists envision, carry out, communicate, and organize their work and approach their objects of inquiry.
