Hello all, this is a blog for Digital Humanities Methods and Practices, or MALS 75500. My major purpose for taking this course is a) it’s interesting and b) there will come a time when almost everybody will be using some of these methods in whatever discipline they are working in. For me personally, the most compelling work right now is in visualization, especially of images. Which is not to say, however, that text mining and all the other tools and methods of DH practices will not also be useful, interesting, and insightful. I also believe that DH methods and practices can and should peacefully coexist, and actually co-mingle, with, traditional humanities methods and sensibilities. We are getting new arrows in our quiver, not replacing the bow.
