Reviews

'Advancing Digital Humanities is essential reading for those considering the future of our interdiscipline." - Professor Ray Siemens, Canada Research Chair in Humanities Computing, University of Victoria, BC, Canada

'Defining Digital Humanities by what it does rather than wrestling with definitions of what it is, the essays in this vibrant anthology are reports of substantive engagements with the intellectual dimensions of technological tools. Each project in this collection starts from research in a core humanities discipline literature, history, cultural studies and extends its questions of style, authorship, influence, production and reception practices through digital means. An excellent volume for those new to the field as well as insiders, each of whom will take away something of value from the carefully crafted insights of these essays.' - Johanna Drucker, Breslauer Professor of Bibliography, Information Studies, UCLA, USA

'This collection of essays is an essential travel guide for anyone who wishes to venture into the varied, complex and challenging intellectual terrain of the digital humanities. The volume moves discussion of digital humanities beyond arid debates about the definition of the field and illustrates the wider theoretical and cultural vistas that the digital humanities are opening up. This compelling collection of thought-provoking essays vividly illustrates how humanities scholars are using digital methods to refashion our cultural understanding and transform representations of knowledge across subjects ranging from Dickens to the Twittersphere. The contributors include not only some of the most distinguished international scholars in the field, but also young researchers engaged in innovative experimentation at the digital coalface, and their energy, diversity and intellectual ambition make this volume a captivating read. Advancing Digital Humanities is a fundamental and unmissable contribution to the intellectual and theoretical formation of this important new area of scholarly endeavour.' - Andrew Prescott, Professor of Digital Humanities and Head, Department of Digital Humanities, King's College London, UK

'This is a considered and timely intervention with chapters by many recognised voices in the DH community as well as many not well known beyond Australasia. Rich in analysis, these authors consistently demonstrate just how pervasive digital methods and theories are in changing the ways in which we do research in the humanities.' - Susan Schreibman, Professor of Digital Humanities, National University of Ireland Maynooth, Ireland
