Description

Lecture by Andrew Prescott, Professor of Digital Humanities at the University of Glasgow

The advent of the use of computers by arts and humanities scholars in the 1950s and 1960s created many anxieties about the role of quantification in humanities scholarship, which still persist today. However, the development of digital humanities in recent years has been characterised by the way it which it transcends quantitative methods. The growth of digital imaging has created a visually rich humanities scholarship which goes beyond text. A wider range of scholars are using material culture, sound and film in their work. Above all, digitisation has expanded the range of easily accessible primary sources. These transformations have not come without difficulties. Of these, the most pressing is the need to develop critical frameworks which take account of the way in which our digital environment is being manipulated and distorted by commercial and political pressures.

This event launches "New Horizons: Confronting the Digital Turn in the Humanities", a lecture series organised by the Luxembourg Centre for Contemporary and Digital History (C²DH).


The lecture is followed by a drinks reception.
