"This book explores the use of digital technologies to understand, interpret, and annotate the poetics of Indian literary and cultural texts which circulate in digital forms - in manuscript, and as oral or musical performance. Drawing on the linguistic, cultural, historical, social, and geographic diversity of Indian texts and contexts, it foregrounds the use of digital technologies - including minimal computing, novel digital humanities research and teaching methodologies, critical archive generation and maintenance - for explicating poetics of Indian literatures and generating scholarly digital resources which will facilitate comparative readings. With contributions from DH scholars and practitioners from across India, the United States, the United Kingdom and more, this book will be a key intervention for scholars and researchers of literature and literary theory, Digital Humanities, media studies, and South Asia Studies"-- Provided by publisher.
