englis­che Aus­gabe:

Cam­pus Medius erforscht und erweit­ert die Möglichkeit­en der dig­i­tal­en Kar­tografie in den Kul­tur- und Medi­en­wis­senschaften. Simon Ganahl doku­men­tiert die Entwick­lung des Pro­jek­ts von ein­er his­torischen Fall­studie zur Map­ping-Plat­tform. Aus­ge­hend von der Frage, was eine medi­ale Erfahrung ist, wer­den die Konzepte des Dis­pos­i­tivs und des Akteur-Net­zw­erks in ein Daten­mod­ell über­set­zt. Als Labor dient ein Zeit-Raum von 24 Stun­den im Mai 1933 in Wien, der von ein­er aus­tro­faschis­tis­chen »Türken­be­freiungs­feier« geprägt ist. Diese Massenkundge­bung wird mul­ti­per­spek­tivisch kar­tografiert und in medi­en­his­torische Net­zw­erke einge­flocht­en, die sich vom 17. Jahrhun­dert bis in unsere Gegen­wart auf­s­pan­nen.

Cam­pus Medius explores and expands the pos­si­bil­i­ties of dig­i­tal car­tog­ra­phy in cul­tur­al and media stud­ies. Simon Ganahl doc­u­ments the devel­op­ment of the project from a his­tor­i­cal case study to a map­ping plat­form. Based on the ques­tion of what a media expe­ri­ence is, the con­cepts of the appa­ra­tus (dis­posi­tif) and the actor-net­work are trans­lat­ed into a data mod­el. A time-space of twen­ty-four hours in Vien­na in May 1933, marked by a so-called »Turks Deliv­er­ance Cel­e­bra­tion« (Türken­be­freiungs­feier), serves as an empir­i­cal lab­o­ra­to­ry. This Aus­tro­fas­cist ral­ly is mapped from mul­ti­ple per­spec­tives and woven into media-his­tor­i­cal net­works, span­ning from the sev­en­teenth cen­tu­ry up to the present day.

Digital Humanities Workshops: Lessons Learned

Lau­ra Estill & Jen­nifer Guil­iano (Her­aus­ge­berin­nen)

Dig­i­tal Human­i­ties Work­shops is the first vol­ume to focus explic­it­ly on the most com­mon and acces­si­ble kind of train­ing in dig­i­tal human­i­ties (DH): work­shops.

Draw­ing togeth­er the expe­ri­ences and exper­tise of dozens of schol­ars and prac­ti­tion­ers from a vari­ety of dis­ci­plines and geo­graph­i­cal con­texts, the chap­ters in this col­lec­tion exam­ine the devel­op­ment, deploy­ment, and assess­ment of a work­shop or work­shop series. In the first sec­tion, „Where?“, the authors seek to sit­u­ate dig­i­tal human­i­ties work­shops with­in local, region­al, and nation­al con­texts. The sec­ond sec­tion, „Who?“, guides read­ers through ques­tions of audi­ence in rela­tion to dig­i­tal human­i­ties work­shops. In the third and final sec­tion, „How?“, authors explore the mechan­ics of such work­shops. Tak­en togeth­er, the chap­ters in this vol­ume answer the impor­tant ques­tion: why are dig­i­tal human­i­ties work­shops so impor­tant and what is their present and future role?

Dig­i­tal Human­i­ties Work­shops exam­ines a range of dig­i­tal human­i­ties work­shops and high­lights audi­ences, resources, and impact. This vol­ume will appeal to aca­d­e­mics, researchers and post­grad­u­ate stu­dents, as well as pro­fes­sion­als work­ing in the DH field. 

The Humanities in the Digital: Beyond Critical Digital Humanities

Lorel­la Vio­la–3‑031–16950‑2

This open access book chal­lenges the con­tem­po­rary rel­e­vance of the cur­rent mod­el of knowl­edge pro­duc­tion. It argues that the full digi­ti­sa­tion of soci­ety sharply accel­er­at­ed by the COVID-19 pan­dem­ic has added extreme com­plex­i­ty to the world, con­clu­sive­ly expos­ing the inad­e­qua­cy of our cur­rent mod­el of knowl­edge cre­ation. Address­ing many of the dif­fer­ent ways in which real­i­ty has been trans­formed by tech­nol­o­gy – the per­va­sive adop­tion of big data, the fetishi­sa­tion of algo­rithms and automa­tion, and the dig­i­tal­i­sa­tion of edu­ca­tion and research – Vio­la exam­ines how the rigid con­cep­tu­al­i­sa­tion in dis­ci­plines’ divi­sion and com­pe­ti­tion is com­plic­it of pro­mot­ing a nar­ra­tive which has paired com­pu­ta­tion­al meth­ods with exact­ness and neu­tral­i­ty whilst stig­ma­tis­ing con­scious­ness and crit­i­cal­i­ty as car­ri­ers of bias­es and inequal­i­ty. Tak­ing the human­i­ties as a focal point, the author retraces schisms in the field between the human­i­ties, the dig­i­tal human­i­ties and crit­i­cal dig­i­tal human­i­ties; these are embed­ded, she argues, with­in old dichotomies: sci­ences vs human­i­ties, dig­i­tal vs non-dig­i­tal and authen­tic vs non-authen­tic. Through the analy­sis of per­son­al use cas­es and explor­ing a vari­ety of applied con­texts such as dig­i­tal her­itage prac­tices, dig­i­tal lin­guis­tic injus­tice, crit­i­cal dig­i­tal lit­er­a­cy and crit­i­cal dig­i­tal visu­al­i­sa­tion, the book shows a third way: knowl­edge cre­ation in the dig­i­tal.
