The invention and application of digital methods, tools and media have had significant effects on scholarly research. They raise new questions about how we conceive knowledge, think about scholarship and develop new epistemic practices, while large-scale digitization projects and hyperactive social media have brought into focus social and historical texts, images and other data formerly difficult or impossible to reach. Overseen by an international board of experts, our Digital Humanities Series: Knowledge, Thought and Practice is dedicated to the exploration of these changes by scholars across disciplines. Books in this Series present cutting-edge research that investigate the links between the digital and other disciplines paving the ways for further investigations and applications that take advantage of new digital media to present knowledge in new ways.

Text and Genre in Reconstruction: Effects of Digitalization on Ideas, Behaviours, Products and Institutions

  • Willard McCarty
Offering a significant contribution to the growing debate on how digitization is shaping our collective identity, this far-reaching, multidisciplinary collection investigates how the digital medium has altered the way we read and write text. In doing so, it challenges the very notion of scholarship as it has traditionally been imagined. Incorporating scientific, socio-historical, materialist and theoretical approaches, leading scholars explore topics including how computers have affected our relationship to language, whether the book has become an obsolete object, the nature of online journalism, and the psychology of authorship.

The Digital Public Domain: Foundations for an Open Culture

  • Melanie Dulong de Rosnay
  • Juan Carlos De Martin
Digital technology has made culture more accessible than ever before, but along with this technological democratization comes a paradoxical flipside: the norms regulating culture’s use – copyright and related rights – have become increasingly restrictive. Bringing together academics, librarians, entrepreneurs, activists and policy makers, this book argues that the Public Domain – the informational works owned by all of us – is fundamental to a healthy society. Essential reading for anyone interested in the current debate about copyright and the internet, this book opens up discussion and offers practical solutions to the difficult question of the regulation of culture in the digital age.

Digital Scholarly Editing: Theories and Practices

  • Matthew James Driscoll
  • Elena Pierazzo
This volume presents the state of the art in digital scholarly editing. Drawing together the work of established and emerging researchers, it gives pause at a crucial moment in the history of technology in order to offer a sustained reflection on the practices involved in producing, editing and reading digital scholarly editions—and the theories that underpin them. The unrelenting progress of computer technology has changed the nature of textual scholarship at the most fundamental level: the way editors and scholars work, the tools they use to do such work and the research questions they attempt to answer have all been affected.
