Hid­den and deval­ued fem­i­nized labour in the dig­i­tal human­i­ties: on the Index Thomisti­cus project 1965–67
BuchcoverHid­den and Deval­ued Fem­i­nized Labour in the Dig­i­tal Human­i­ties exam­ines the data-dri­ven labour that under­pinned the Index Thomisticus–a pre­em­i­nent project of the incunab­u­lar dig­i­tal humanities–and advanced the data-foun­da­tions of com­put­ing in the Human­i­ties.
Through oral his­to­ry and archival research, Nyhan reveals a hid­den his­to­ry of the entan­gle­ments of gen­der in the intel­lec­tu­al and tech­ni­cal work of the ear­ly dig­i­tal human­i­ties. Set­ting fem­i­nized key­punch­ing in its his­tor­i­cal contexts–from the his­to­ry of con­cor­dance mak­ing, to the fem­i­niza­tion of the office and human­i­ties computing–this book deliv­ers new insight into the cat­e­gories of work deemed mer­i­to­ri­ous of acknowl­edge­ment and attri­bu­tion and, thus, how knowl­edge and exper­tise was defined in and by this field. Focal­iz­ing the over­looked yet sig­nif­i­cant data-dri­ven labour of less­er-known indi­vid­u­als, this book chal­lenges exclu­sion­ary read­ings of the his­to­ry of com­put­ing in the Human­i­ties. Con­tribut­ing to ongo­ing con­ver­sa­tions about the need for alter­na­tive genealo­gies of com­put­ing, this book is also rel­e­vant to cur­rent debates about diver­si­ty and rep­re­sen­ta­tion in the Acad­e­my and the wider com­put­ing sec­tor.
Hid­den and Deval­ued Fem­i­nized Labour in the Dig­i­tal Human­i­ties will be of inter­est to researchers and stu­dents study­ing dig­i­tal human­i­ties, library and infor­ma­tion sci­ence, the his­to­ry of com­put­ing, oral his­to­ry, the his­to­ry of the human­i­ties, and the soci­ol­o­gy of knowl­edge and sci­ence.

Cor­po­ra and rhetor­i­cal­ly informed text analy­sis: the diverse appli­ca­tions of DocuS­cope
BuchcoverCor­po­ra and Rhetor­i­cal­ly Informed Text Analy­sis explores appli­ca­tions of rhetor­i­cal­ly informed approach­es to cor­pus research. Bring­ing togeth­er con­tri­bu­tions from schol­ars in a vari­ety of fields, it takes up ques­tions of how the­o­ries and tra­di­tions in rhetor­i­cal analy­sis can be inte­grat­ed with cor­pus tech­niques in order to enrich our under­stand­ing of lan­guage use, vari­a­tion, and his­to­ry. The stud­ies includ­ed in this vol­ume shed light on areas as diverse as stu­dent aca­d­e­m­ic writ­ing, polit­i­cal dis­course, and the dig­i­tal human­i­ties. These stud­ies all make use of a dic­tio­nary-based tag­ger called DocuS­cope, which rec­og­nizes tens-of-mil­lions of words and phras­es and slots them into cat­e­gories based on their rhetor­i­cal func­tions. While DocuS­cope pro­vides a through-line that both links the stud­ies’ var­i­ous ana­lyt­i­cal pro­ce­dures and primes their rhetor­i­cal insights, the vol­ume is about more than the explana­to­ry pow­er of a sin­gle tool. It demon­strates how rhetor­i­cal­ly informed approach­es can com­ple­ment more estab­lished cor­pus method­olo­gies, under­scor­ing their com­bined poten­tial.
