The ancient world goes dig­i­tal: case stud­ies on archae­ol­o­gy, texts, online pub­lish­ing, dig­i­tal archiv­ing, and preser­va­tion
BuchcoverThe new vol­ume of the Cyber­Re­search series brings togeth­er thir­ty-three authors under the umbrel­la of dig­i­tal meth­ods in Archae­ol­o­gy, Ancient Near East­ern Stud­ies and Bib­li­cal stud­ies.
Both a new­bie and a pro­fes­sion­al read­er will find here diverse research top­ics, accom­pa­nied by detailed pre­sen­ta­tions of dig­i­tal meth­ods: dis­tant read­ing of text cor­po­ra, GIS dig­i­tal imag­ing, and var­i­ous meth­ods of text analy­ses. The vol­ume is divid­ed into three parts under the head­ings of archae­ol­o­gy, texts and online pub­lish­ing, and includes a wide range of approach­es from the philo­soph­i­cal to the prac­ti­cal.
This vol­ume brings the read­er up-to-date research in the field of dig­i­tal Ancient Near East­ern stud­ies, and high­lights emerg­ing meth­ods and prac­tices. While not a text­book per se, the book is excel­lent for teach­ing and explor­ing the Dig­i­tal Human­i­ties.

Afro­fu­tur­ism and Dig­i­tal Human­i­ties: Show Me and I Will Engage Dif­fer­ent­ly
BuchcoverThis book brings Afro­fu­tur­ism into con­ver­sa­tion with dig­i­tal human­i­ties to pio­neer the field of Dig­i­tal Africana Stud­ies, and shows how stu­dents and aca­d­e­mics can engage with the vision of Afro­fu­tur­ism, both the­o­ret­i­cal­ly and prac­ti­cal­ly, in the class­room and through research.
As Black peo­ple across the globe con­sid­er their place in the future fol­low­ing the past two decades of tech­no­log­i­cal advance­ment, Afro­fu­tur­ism and its rel­e­vance for the human­i­ties has become ever per­ti­nent. While Afro­fu­tur­ism has thus far been dis­cussed through a lit­er­ary, artis­tic, or pop­u­lar cul­ture lens, grow­ing use of new tech­nolo­gies, and its resul­tant inter­sec­tions with the real­i­ty of our racial expe­ri­ences, has cre­at­ed a need for approach­ing Afro­fu­tur­ism from a dig­i­tal stud­ies per­spec­tive. Via detailed case stud­ies, Bryan W. Carter intro­duces the field of Dig­i­tal Africana Stud­ies to demon­strate how this new area can be expe­ri­enced ped­a­gog­i­cal­ly. Along­side the book, read­ers can also vis­it select Dig­i­tal Africana Stud­ies projects that exem­pli­fy the var­i­ous tech­nolo­gies and projects described at the author’s web­site:
Giv­en its unique approach to the path-break­ing tra­di­tion of Afro­fu­tur­ism, the book will be indis­pens­able for schol­ars and stu­dents across fields such as dig­i­tal human­i­ties, media stud­ies, black stud­ies, African Amer­i­can stud­ies, and Africana stud­ies.
