…Debates in the Digital Humanities. Minneapolis: University of Minnesota Press, 2012.
This collection of essays presents perspectives on the debates that have surrounded the recent emergence of the digital humanities as an academic discipline. Among the issues addressed by over thirty prominent digital humanities scholars are the struggles to define the field; the relationship of DH to theory; the prospects for new forms of scholarship and new models of scholarly communication; the past, present, and future directions of DH; the status of pedagogy within the field; the range of possible cultural approaches to DH; the methodologies that define DH inquiry; and the institutional ramifications of DH.
An interactive, open-access, social edition of the text, created by the GC Digital Scholarship Lab in partnership with the University of Minnesota Press, was released in January 2013: http://dhdebates.gc.cuny.e…

My background is in medieval literature and history, with a focus on fictional representations of the multifaceted crime of abduction in Middle English literature and concepts of personal and political consent formation in premodern England.
