Video interview with editor Silke Schwandt

A new series addresses the methodological and theoretical implications of the application of digital research in the humanities. The first volume »Digital Methods in the Humanities« was recently published by Bielefeld University Press.

Digital Humanities Research. How do digital methods challenge the paradigms of the humanities?

An introduction of the series by editor Silke Schwandt

One of the biggest, if not THE biggest cultural transformation that our society is facing right now, is the digitalization of almost all realms of our lives. Digitalization does not stop at the doorstep of scientific research in general or the humanities in particular. Digitalization changes all that we are interested in, it changes communities, human interactions, societal institutions and organizations.
