Drawing from a tradition in textual criticism, the chapter renovates Jerome McGann’s notion of “radiant textuality” to extended virtual objects and built environments in digital…[Read more]
The first section of David Mitchell’s genre-bending novel, Cloud Atlas (2004), purports to be set in 1850. Narrative clues approximately date the intra-diegetic diary object of this chapter to the period 1851–1910. This article argues for the construction of a stylistic historical imaginary of this period’s language that is not based on mimet…[Read more]

This syllabus is my fifth version of a course aimed at introducing the digital humanities at an undergraduate level. In consultation with my colleagues, I decided that this year’s version should also include a unit that looked at digital objects with a humanities perspective.

The past twenty years have witnessed a mounting crisis in academic publishing. Companies such as Reed-Elsevier, Wiley-Blackwell, and Taylor and Francis have earned unprecedented profits by controlling more and more scholarly output while increasing subscription rates to academic journals.

Widely considered a minor voice who entered the…[Read more]
This article examines the recurring ways in which some of the most popular DH tools are presented as easy to use. It argues that attempts to couch powerful tools in what is often false familiarity, directly undermines the goal of encouraging scholarly innovation and risk taking. The consequences of framing digital tools as either easy or more…[Read more]
This article details the contributions of blind readers to the development, design, and marketing of the optophone, a text-to-tone transcription machine introduced in the early twentieth century. We combine archival research with prototyping to investigate the dimensions involved in past coding and decoding practices. If archives provide…[Read more]

As a result of the lim…[Read more]

I wanted to share an exciting project we have recently launched to mark the bicentennial of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein. We hope our completely free, open-source digital edition of the novel will be useful as a teaching resource as well as a living prototype of large-scale collaborative annotation.
