Abstract

Brian Croxall Emory University Over the last five years, there have been countless articles written about the digital humanities. It’s been called both the savior and the death knell of scholarship in the twenty-first century. But what do we mean when we say “digital humanities”? How “digital” and how “humanities” need we be? Why is so much faith being placed in code and code words? In this presentation, Brian Croxall argues that digital humanists need to speak in code less frequently and that the rest of us probably speak more code than we realize.
