I'm pleased to announce that Working Together or Apart: Promoting the Next Generation of Digital Scholarship is now available for download via the CLIR (Council on Library and Information Resources) website.
Working Together is the final report from a symposium sponsored by the NEH and CLIR. The symposium was held on September 15th, 2008, and brought together 30 leading scholars to discuss research challenges in the humanities, social sciences, and computation. The report includes a terrific overview of the symposium written by Amy Friedlander of CLIR as well as a series of original papers commissioned for the meeting. The papers cover a wide range of topics that should be of great interest to the humanities research community:
- Tools for Thinking: ePhilology and Cyberinfrastructure, by Gregory Crane, Alison Babeu, David Bamman, Lisa Cerrato, Rashmi Singhal
- The Changing Landscape of American Studies in a Global Era, by Caroline Levander
- A Whirlwind Tour of Automated Language Processing for the Humanities and Social Sciences, by Douglas W. Oard.
- Information Visualization: Challenge for the Humanities, by Maureen Stone.
- Art History and the New Media: Representation and the Production of Humanistic Knowledge, by Stephen Murray.
- Social Attention in the Age of the Web, by Bernardo A. Huberman .
- Digital Humanities Centers: Loci for Digital Scholarship, by Diane M. Zorich.
My particular thanks go to Amy Friedlander at CLIR and Joel Wurl from the NEH for their tremendous work putting this together.
