On mak­ing in the dig­i­tal human­i­ties: the schol­ar­ship of dig­i­tal human­i­ties devel­op­ment in hon­our of John Bradley
BuchcoverOn Mak­ing in the Dig­i­tal Human­i­ties fills a gap in our under­stand­ing of dig­i­tal human­i­ties projects and craft by explor­ing the process­es of mak­ing as much as the prod­ucts that arise from it.
The vol­ume draws focus to the inter­wo­ven lay­ers of human and tech­no­log­i­cal tex­tures that con­sti­tute dig­i­tal human­i­ties schol­ar­ship. To do this, it assem­bles a group of well-known, expe­ri­enced and emerg­ing schol­ars in the dig­i­tal human­i­ties to reflect on var­i­ous forms of mak­ing (we priv­i­lege here the cre­ative and applied side of the dig­i­tal human­i­ties). The vol­ume hon­ours the work of John Bradley, as it is totemic of a prac­tice of mak­ing that is deeply informed by crit­i­cal per­spec­tives. A spe­cial chap­ter also hon­ours the pro­found con­tri­bu­tions that this volume’s co-edi­tor, Sté­fan Sin­clair, made to the cre­ative, applied and intel­lec­tu­al prax­is of mak­ing and the dig­i­tal human­i­ties. Sté­fan Sin­clair passed away on 6 August 2020.
The chap­ters gath­ered here are indi­vid­u­al­ly impor­tant, but togeth­er pro­vide a very human view on what it is to do the dig­i­tal human­i­ties, in the past, present and future. This book will accord­ing­ly be of inter­est to researchers, teach­ers and stu­dents of the dig­i­tal human­i­ties; cre­ative human­i­ties, includ­ing mak­er spaces and cul­ture; infor­ma­tion stud­ies; the his­to­ry of com­put­ing and tech­nol­o­gy; and the his­to­ry of sci­ence and the human­i­ties.

When Data Chal­lenges The­o­ry: Unex­pect­ed and Para­dox­i­cal Evi­dence in Infor­ma­tion Struc­ture

BuchcoverThis vol­ume offers a crit­i­cal appraisal of the ten­sion between the­o­ry and empir­i­cal evi­dence in research on infor­ma­tion struc­ture.
The rel­e­vance of ‘unex­pect­ed’ data tak­en into account in the last decades, such as the well-known case of non-focal­iz­ing cleft sen­tences in Ger­man­ic and Romance, has increas­ing­ly led us to give more weight to expla­na­tions involv­ing infer­en­tial rea­son­ing, dis­course orga­ni­za­tion and speak­ers’ rhetor­i­cal strate­gies, thus mov­ing away from ‘sen­tence-based’ per­spec­tives. At the same time, this shift towards prag­mat­ic com­plex­i­ty has intro­duced new chal­lenges to well-estab­lished infor­ma­tion-struc­tur­al cat­e­gories, such as Focus and Top­ic, to the point that some schol­ars nowa­days even doubt about their descrip­tive and the­o­ret­i­cal use­ful­ness.
This book brings togeth­er researchers work­ing in dif­fer­ent frame­works and delv­ing into cross-lin­guis­tic as well as lan­guage-inter­nal vari­a­tion and lan­guage con­tact. Despite their dif­fer­ences, all con­tri­bu­tions are com­mit­ted to the same under­ly­ing goal: appre­ci­at­ing the rela­tion between lin­guis­tic struc­tures and their con­text based on a firm empir­i­cal ground­ing and on the­o­ret­i­cal mod­els that are able to account for the chal­lenges and rich­ness of lan­guage use.
