Summary
"Advancing Digital Humanities moves beyond definition of this dynamic and fast growing field to show how its arguments, analyses, findings and theories are pioneering new directions in the humanities globally. Sections cover digital methods, critical curation and research futures, with theoretical and practical chapters framed around key areas of activity including modelling collections, data-driven analysis, and thinking through building. These are linked through the concept of 'ambitious generosity, ' a way of working to pursue large-scale research questions while supporting and enabling other research areas and approaches, both within and beyond the academy"-- Provided by publisher.
