The 'digital humanities' are growing rapidly to become what some feel will become the dominant methodology of the current generation of scholars, and what others interpret as a distraction, or indeed an outright threat, to humanistic traditions of knowledge creation.  In this masterclass, Dr Jennifer Edmond introduced the basic definitions and approaches of digital humanities, including some of the real opportunities and threats the ‘digital turn’ in scholarship pose.   

Required readings

Guillory, John: How Scholars Read
Crane, Greg: What Do You Do With a Million Books?
Moretti, Franco: Conjectures on World Literature
