MITH Digital Dialogue: Fred Gibbs, Criticism in the Digital Humanities

As the digital humanities community expands beyond its computing roots, and as humanistic inquiry and interpretation (as opposed to methodological novelty) feature more prominently in its projects, the boundaries between digital and analog humanities grow increasingly blurred and permeable. One fortunate result is that more DH work has been opened up to scholarly critique by a considerably broader humanities audience. However, much of this work  often the most innovative ­ cannot be fully evaluated through the traditional critical lenses of the humanities. This talk argues that the DH community neither has established a sufficient rubric for critiquing its work, nor has been critical enough of its own projects. Dr. Gibbs' talk will be held in the MITH Conference Room, in the basement of McKeldin Library. Fred Gibbs is an assistant professor of history at George Mason University and Director of Digital Scholarship at the Roy Rosenzweig Center for History and New Media. {Will appear in FYI on Oct 10, 2011
