Mul­ti­lin­gual­ism from Man­u­script to 3D: Inter­sec­tions of Modal­i­ties from Medieval to Mod­ern Times
BuchcoverThis col­lec­tion explores the links between mul­ti­modal­i­ty and mul­ti­lin­gual­ism, chart­ing the inter­play between lan­guages, chan­nels and forms of com­mu­ni­ca­tion in mul­ti­lin­gual writ­ten texts from his­tor­i­cal man­u­scripts through to the new media of today and the non-ver­bal asso­ci­a­tions they evoke.
The vol­ume argues that fea­tures of writ­ten texts such as graph­ics, lay­out, bound­ary mark­ing and typog­ra­phy are insep­a­ra­ble from ver­bal con­tent. Tak­en togeth­er, the chap­ters adopt a sys­tem­at­ic his­tor­i­cal per­spec­tive to inves­ti­gate this inter­play over time and high­light the ways in which the two dis­ci­plines might fur­ther inform one anoth­er in the future as new tech­nolo­gies emerge. The first half of the vol­ume con­sid­ers texts where semi­otic resources are the sites of modes, where mul­ti­ple lin­guis­tic codes inter­act on the page and gen­er­ate extralin­guis­tic asso­ci­a­tions through visu­al fea­tures and spa­tial orga­ni­za­i­sa­tion. The sec­ond half of the book looks at texts where this inter­face occurs not in the text but rather in the cul­tur­al prac­tices involved in social mate­ri­al­i­ty and text trans­mis­sion.
Enhanc­ing our under­stand­ings of mul­ti­modal resources in both his­tor­i­cal and con­tem­po­rary com­mu­ni­ca­tion, this book will be of inter­est to schol­ars in mul­ti­modal­i­ty, mul­ti­lin­gual­ism, his­tor­i­cal com­mu­ni­ca­tion, dis­course analy­sis and cul­tur­al stud­ies.

Debates in the dig­i­tal human­i­ties 2023
BuchcoverWhere do the dig­i­tal human­i­ties stand in 2023? Debates in the Dig­i­tal Human­i­ties 2023 presents a state-of-the-field vision of dig­i­tal human­i­ties amid ris­ing social, polit­i­cal, eco­nom­ic, and envi­ron­men­tal crises; a glob­al pan­dem­ic; and the deep­en­ing of aus­ter­i­ty regimes in U.S. high­er edu­ca­tion. Pro­vid­ing a look not just at where DH stands but also where it is going, this fourth vol­ume in the Debates in the Dig­i­tal Human­i­ties series fea­tures both estab­lished schol­ars and emerg­ing voic­es push­ing the field’s bound­aries, ask­ing thorny ques­tions, and pro­vid­ing space for prac­ti­tion­ers to bring to the fore their research and their hopes for future direc­tions in the field. Car­ry­ing for­ward the themes of polit­i­cal and social engage­ment present in the series through­out, it includes cru­cial con­tri­bu­tions to the field—from a vital forum cen­tered on the voic­es of Black women schol­ars, man­i­festos from fem­i­nist and Lat­inx per­spec­tives on data and DH, and a con­sid­er­a­tion of Indige­nous data and arti­fi­cial intel­li­gence, to essays that range across top­ics such as the rela­tion of DH to crit­i­cal race the­o­ry, cap­i­tal, and acces­si­bil­i­ty.
