Lit­er­ary sim­u­la­tion and the dig­i­tal human­i­ties: read­ing, edit­ing, writ­ing
BuchcoverHow can we use dig­i­tal media to under­stand read­ing, edit­ing, and writ­ing as lit­er­ary process­es? How can we design the dig­i­tal medi­um in a way that goes beyond the print­ed codex? This book is an attempt to answer those fun­da­men­tal ques­tions by bring­ing togeth­er a new the­o­ry of lit­er­ary stud­ies with a high­ly dynam­ic dig­i­tal envi­ron­ment.
Using the dig­i­tal archive of the mod­ernist mas­ter­piece Book of Dis­qui­et, by the Por­tuguese writer Fer­nan­do Pes­soa (1888–1935), as case study and site for sim­u­la­tion and prac­ti­cal exper­i­ment, Lit­er­ary Sim­u­la­tion and the Dig­i­tal Human­i­ties demon­strates how com­pu­ta­tion­al approach­es to texts can ful­ly engage with the com­plex­i­ties of con­tem­po­rary lit­er­ary the­o­ry. Manuel Portela mar­shals a unique com­bi­na­tion of the­o­ret­i­cal spec­u­la­tion, lit­er­ary analy­sis, and human imag­i­na­tion in what amounts to a sig­nif­i­cant crit­i­cal inter­ven­tion and a key advance in the use of dig­i­tal meth­ods to rethink the process­es of read­ing and writ­ing lit­er­a­ture.
The fore­ground­ing of the foun­da­tion­al prac­tices of read­ing, edit­ing, and writ­ing will be rel­e­vant for sev­er­al fields, includ­ing lit­er­ary stud­ies, schol­ar­ly edit­ing, soft­ware stud­ies, and dig­i­tal human­i­ties.

Hack­ing in the human­i­ties: cyber­se­cu­ri­ty, spec­u­la­tive fic­tion, and nav­i­gat­ing a dig­i­tal future
BuchcoverWhat would it take to hack a human? How exploitable are we? In the cyber­se­cu­ri­ty indus­try, pro­fes­sion­als know that the weak­est com­po­nent of any sys­tem sits between the chair and the key­board. This book looks to spec­u­la­tive fic­tion, cyber­punk and the dig­i­tal human­i­ties to bring a human – and human­is­tic – per­spec­tive to the issue of cyber­se­cu­ri­ty. It argues that through these sto­ries we are able to pre­dict the future polit­i­cal, cul­tur­al, and social real­i­ties emerg­ing from tech­no­log­i­cal change.
Mak­ing the case for a secu­ri­ty-mind­ed human­i­ties edu­ca­tion, this book exam­ines press­ing issues of data secu­ri­ty, pri­va­cy, social engi­neer­ing and more, illus­trat­ing how the human­i­ties offer the crit­i­cal, tech­ni­cal, and eth­i­cal insights need­ed to oppose the nor­mal­iza­tion of sur­veil­lance, dis­in­for­ma­tion, and coer­cion.
With­in this counter-cul­tur­al approach to tech­nol­o­gy, this book offers a mod­el of activism to inter­vene and mean­ing­ful­ly resist gov­ern­ment and cor­po­rate over­sight online. In doing so, it argues for a wider notion of lit­er­a­cy, which includes the abil­i­ty to write and fight the com­put­er code that shapes our lives.
