About this book

This book highlights an interdisciplinary terrain where the humanities and social sciences combine with digital methods. It argues that while disciplinary frictions still condition the potential of digital projects, the nature of the urban phenomenon pushes us toward an interdisciplinary and digital future where the primacy of cities is assured.

About the authors

Benjamin Fraser is Professor and Chair of Foreign Languages and Literatures at East Carolina University, USA.

Reviews

'Making a strong case for interdisciplinary layering as a way to represent the many layers - physical, social, aesthetic - of the city, Fraser's visionary book is as much a meditation on the future of the digital humanities itself as it is on the city as an object of humanistic inquiry. He cogently charts a course for how humanists will employ thick mapping as a way to practice the digital humanities.' David J. Staley, Associate Professor of History and Adjunct Associate Professor of Design, Director of the Goldberg Center at The Ohio State University, USA
