Guer­ril­la the­o­ry: Polit­i­cal Con­cepts, Crit­i­cal Dig­i­tal Human­i­ties
BuchcoverGuer­ril­la The­o­ry exam­ines the polit­i­cal, onto­log­i­cal, and tech­no­log­i­cal under­pin­nings of the guer­ril­la in the dig­i­tal human­i­ties (DH). The fig­ure of the guer­ril­la appears in dig­i­tal human­i­ties’ recent his­to­ry as an agent of tac­ti­cal ref­or­ma­tion. It refers to a broad swath of dis­ci­pli­nary desires: dig­i­tal human­i­ties’ claim to col­lab­o­ra­tive and inclu­sive ped­a­gogy, min­i­mal and encrypt­ed com­put­ing, and a host of minori­tar­i­an polit­i­cal inter­ven­tions in its prax­is, includ­ing queer pol­i­tics, crit­i­cal race stud­ies, and fem­i­nist the­o­ry.
In this pen­e­trat­ing study, Matthew Apple­gate uses the guer­ril­la to con­nect pop­u­lar iter­a­tions of dig­i­tal human­i­ties’ prac­tice to its polit­i­cal rhetoric and infra­struc­ture. By doing so, he reori­ents DH’s con­cep­tu­al lex­i­con around prac­tices of col­lec­tive becom­ing, medi­at­ed by claims to con­flict, antag­o­nism, and demo­c­ra­t­ic will.
Apple­gate traces Michael Hardt and Anto­nio Negri’s rad­i­cal demo­c­ra­t­ic ingress­es into net­work the­o­ry, the guerrilla’s role in its dis­course, and con­cerns for the dig­i­tal human­i­ties’ own invo­ca­tion of the fig­ure. The book also con­nects post- and decolo­nial, fem­i­nist, and Marx­ist iter­a­tions of DH prax­is to the aes­thet­ic his­to­ries of move­ments such as Latin Amer­i­can Third Cin­e­ma and the doc­u­men­tary cin­e­ma of the Black Pan­ther Par­ty. Con­clud­ing with a med­i­ta­tion on con­tem­po­rary polit­i­cal modal­i­ties inher­ent in DH’s dis­ci­pli­nary expan­sion, Guer­ril­la The­o­ry chal­lenges the cur­rent polit­i­cal scope of the dig­i­tal human­i­ties and thus its future insti­tu­tion­al impact.

Lan­guage and text. Data, mod­els, infor­ma­tion and appli­ca­tions
BuchcoverSpe­cial­ists in quan­ti­ta­tive lin­guis­tics the world over have recourse to a sol­id and uni­ver­sal method­ol­o­gy. These days, their meth­ods and math­e­mat­i­cal mod­els must also respond to new com­mu­ni­ca­tion phe­nom­e­na and the flood of data pro­duced dai­ly. While var­i­ous dis­ci­plines (com­put­er sci­ence, media sci­ence) have dif­fer­ent ways of pro­cess­ing this onslaught of infor­ma­tion, the lin­guis­tic approach is arguably the most rel­e­vant and effec­tive. This book includes recent results from many renowned con­tem­po­rary prac­ti­tion­ers in the field. Our tar­get audi­ences are aca­d­e­mics, researchers, grad­u­ate stu­dents, and oth­ers involved in lin­guis­tics, dig­i­tal human­i­ties, and applied math­e­mat­ics.
