RESOURCE: Computation and the Humanities: Towards an Oral History of DH 1

In a recent news post, the European Association for Digital Humanities (EADH) draws attention to a new open access book by Julianne Nyhan and Andrew Flinn (both at University College London), Computation and the Humanities: Towards an Oral History of Digital Humanities.

As EADH notes, “By taking an oral history approach, this book explores questions like, among others, researchers’ earliest memories of encountering computers and the factors that subsequently prompted them to use the computer in Humanities research.” The book features discussions with John Burrows, Hugh Craig, Willard McCarty, Wilhelm Ott, Tito Orlandi, Susan Hockey, Judy Malloy, Mary Dee Harris, John Nitti, Helen Agüera, Hans Rutimann, Michael Sperberg-McQueen, Manfred Thaller, John Bradley, Claus Huitfeldt, and Gabriel Egan (listed in order of appearance).
