The Pal­grave Hand­book of Dig­i­tal and Pub­lic Human­i­ties
BuchcoverThis hand­book brings togeth­er recent inter­na­tion­al schol­ar­ship and devel­op­ments in the inter­dis­ci­pli­nary fields of dig­i­tal and pub­lic human­i­ties. Explor­ing key con­cepts, the­o­ries, prac­tices and debates with­in both the dig­i­tal and pub­lic human­i­ties, the hand­book also assess­es how these two areas are increas­ing­ly inter­twined. Key ques­tions of access, own­er­ship, author­ship and rep­re­sen­ta­tion link the indi­vid­ual sec­tions and con­tri­bu­tions. The hand­book includes per­spec­tives from the Glob­al South and presents schol­ar­ship and prac­tice that engage with a mul­ti­plic­i­ty of under­rep­re­sent­ed ‘publics’, includ­ing LGBTQ+ com­mu­ni­ties, eth­nic and lin­guis­tic minori­ties, the incar­cer­at­ed and those affect­ed by per­son­al or col­lec­tive trau­ma.

Lit­er­ary math­e­mat­ics: quan­ti­ta­tive the­o­ry for tex­tu­al stud­ies
BuchcoverAcross the human­i­ties and social sci­ences, schol­ars increas­ing­ly use quan­ti­ta­tive meth­ods to study tex­tu­al data. Con­sid­ered togeth­er, this research rep­re­sents an extra­or­di­nary event in the long his­to­ry of tex­tu­al­i­ty. More or less all at once, the cor­pus has emerged as a major genre of cul­tur­al and sci­en­tif­ic knowl­edge. In Lit­er­ary Math­e­mat­ics, Michael Gavin grap­ples with this devel­op­ment, describ­ing how quan­ti­ta­tive meth­ods for the study of tex­tu­al data offer pow­er­ful tools for his­tor­i­cal inquiry and some­times unex­pect­ed per­spec­tives on the­o­ret­i­cal issues of con­cern to lit­er­ary stud­ies.
Stu­dent-friend­ly and acces­si­ble, the book advances this argu­ment through case stud­ies drawn from the Ear­ly Eng­lish Books Online cor­pus. Gavin shows how a cop­ub­li­ca­tion net­work of print­ers and authors reveals an uncan­ni­ly accu­rate pic­ture of his­tor­i­cal peri­odiza­tion; that a vec­tor-space seman­tic mod­el pars­es his­tor­i­cal con­cepts in incred­i­bly fine detail; and that a geospa­tial analy­sis of ear­ly mod­ern dis­course offers a sur­pris­ing panoram­ic glimpse into the period’s notion of world geog­ra­phy. Across these case stud­ies, Gavin chal­lenges read­ers to con­sid­er why cor­pus-based meth­ods work so effec­tive­ly and asks whether the suc­cess­es of for­mal mod­el­ing ought to inspire human­ists to recon­sid­er fun­da­men­tal the­o­ret­i­cal assump­tions about tex­tu­al­i­ty and mean­ing. As Gavin reveals, by embrac­ing the expres­sive pow­er of math­e­mat­ics, schol­ars can add new dimen­sions to dig­i­tal human­i­ties research and find new con­nec­tions with the social sci­ences.
