Kennen Sie schon … The Digital Orientalist?

Logo "The Digital Orientalist" (

This online mag­a­zine is run by a ded­i­cat­ed team of schol­ars, librar­i­ans, and stu­dents. We share our expe­ri­ence using dig­i­tal tools in the Human­i­ties, espe­cial­ly as it relates to our day-to-day work­flow.

Our name, The Dig­i­tal Ori­en­tal­ist, may raise an eye­brow. We are all ful­ly aware of the con­tentious mean­ing of ‘Ori­en­tal­ism’ and its rela­tion to colo­nial­ism. We are of the opin­ion that enough years have gone by to pick this name up again, to con­vey in one word the rela­tion between our fields of stud­ies. In this sense we mir­ror sim­i­lar ini­tia­tives like The Dig­i­tal Clas­si­cist, The Dig­i­tal Medieval­ist, The Dig­i­tal Human­ist, etc. As diverse as our fields of stud­ies are, when it comes to dig­i­tal solu­tions, there are many shared aspects. We there­fore think we stand to ben­e­fit from talk­ing to each oth­er, to learn of best prac­tices in oth­er fields.

The Dig­i­tal Ori­en­tal­ist is affil­i­at­ed with the Amer­i­can Ori­en­tal Soci­ety and is active on both Twit­ter and Face­book. Please con­sid­er fol­low­ing us for news and updates.
