New book on teaching digital humanities

January 9, 2013

Digital Humanities Pedagogy bookDigital Humanities Pedagogy: Practices, Principles and Politics is a book of essays that was published in December 2012. Paper and PDF editions are reasonably priced, but you can read it online for free! From the publisher:

The first section offers views on the practical realities of teaching digital humanities … The next section proposes strategies for teaching foundational digital humanities methods … and the book concludes with wider debates about the place of digital humanities in the academy.

For those unfamiliar with the term, digital humanities takes research, teaching, and creation beyond text and paper to integrate digital tools and methods. It is about answering existing questions and generating new ones — challenging existing paradigms and creating new ones. A major focal point for digital humanities is the Roy Rosenzweig Center for History and New Media at George Mason University.
