Alumni Spotlight: New Publication from CS Alumni

We are pleased to announce the new  edited volume, Research Methods for the Digital Humanities, has been published by Palgrave Macmillan.

This major volume on digital humanities has been edited by recent CS graduates Lewis Lewenberg, Tai Neilson, and David Rheams.  The collection also includes contributions from CS alumni Robert Gehl and Dave Arditi

Please see below for a summary from Palgrave Macmillan:

"This volume introduces the reader to the wide range of methods that digital humanities employ, and offers a practical guide to the study, interpretation, and presentation of cultural material and practices. In this instance, the editors consider digital humanities to include both the use of computing to understand cultural material in new ways, and the application of theories and methods from the humanities to interpret new technologies. Each chapter provides a step-by-step guide to cutting-edge methodologies so that students can make informed decisions about the methods they use, consider ethical practices, follow practical procedures, and present their work effectively. Readers will develop practical and reflexive understandings of the software and digital devices that they study and use for research, and the book will help new researchers collaborate and contribute to their scholarly communities, and to public discourse. As contemporary humanities work becomes increasingly interdisciplinary, and increasingly permeated by and with digital technologies, this volume helps new researchers navigate an evolving academic environment. Humanities and social sciences students will find this textbook an invaluable resource for assessing and creating digital projects."
