2010 Plenary 4
Plenary 4: Digital Humanities is Not an Oxymoron
Digital literacy has joined critical thinking and information literacy as essential to scholarship in the sciences and social sciences, but traditional humanities fields have been slower to embrace this need. The emerging field of the digital humanities, however, is more than just the next big thing in academic circles. What it offers for scholars is game-changing. University presses may be particularly well suited to be strong partners in this transformation. This conversation will explore the margins of that nascent partnership.
