Six Sep­tem­bers: Math­e­mat­ics for the Human­ist
BuchcoverSchol­ars of all stripes are turn­ing their atten­tion to mate­ri­als that rep­re­sent enor­mous oppor­tu­ni­ties for the future of human­is­tic inquiry. The pur­pose of this book is to impart the con­cepts that under­lie the math­e­mat­ics they are like­ly to encounter and to unfold the nota­tion in a way that removes that par­tic­u­lar bar­ri­er com­plete­ly. This book is a primer for devel­op­ing the skills to enable human­ist schol­ars to address com­pli­cat­ed tech­ni­cal mate­r­i­al with con­fi­dence. This book, to put it plain­ly, is con­cerned with the things that the author of a tech­ni­cal arti­cle knows, but isn’t say­ing. Like any field, math­e­mat­ics oper­ates under a regime of shared assump­tions, and it is our pur­pose to elu­ci­date some of those assump­tions for the new­com­er.
The indi­vid­ual sub­jects we tack­le are (in order): log­ic and proof, dis­crete math­e­mat­ics, abstract alge­bra, prob­a­bil­i­ty and sta­tis­tics, cal­cu­lus, and dif­fer­en­tial equa­tions. This is not at all the order in which these sub­jects are usu­al­ly taught in school cur­ric­u­la, and indeed, it is pos­si­ble to take a course of study that does not include all of them. Our order­ing is borne of our own sense of how best to con­vey the con­cepts of math­e­mat­ics to human­ists, and is, like math­e­mat­ics itself, strong­ly cumu­la­tive.

Anno­ta­tions in Schol­ar­ly Edi­tions and Research: Func­tions, Dif­fer­en­ti­a­tion, Sys­tem­ati­za­tion
BuchcoverThe term ‘anno­ta­tion’ is asso­ci­at­ed in the Human­i­ties and Tech­ni­cal Sci­ences with dif­fer­ent con­cepts that vary in cov­er­age, appli­ca­tion and direc­tion but which also have instruc­tive par­al­lels. This pub­li­ca­tion mir­rors the increas­ing coop­er­a­tion that has been tak­ing place between the two dis­ci­plines with­in the scope of the dig­i­tal­iza­tion of the Human­i­ties. It presents the results of an inter­na­tion­al con­fer­ence on the con­cept of anno­ta­tion that took place at the Uni­ver­si­ty of Wup­per­tal in Feb­ru­ary 2019. This pub­li­ca­tion reflects on dif­fer­ent prac­tices and asso­ci­at­ed con­cepts of anno­ta­tion in an inter­dis­ci­pli­nary per­spec­tive, puts them in rela­tion to each oth­er and attempts to sys­tem­atize their com­mon­al­i­ties and diver­gences.
