Journal of Digital Humanities 2.2: Expanding Communities of Practice

The sixth issue of the Journal of Digital Humanities is now available online, with options to download as epub, PDF, or iBook. The materials featured in this sixth issue of the Journal of Digital Humanities expose "communities of practice" in digital humanities beyond the constellations of people and institutions directly engaged in experimental and digitally-inflected scholarship. Communities of practice, socially constructed groups that form around shared interests or crafts, often generate forms of tacit knowledge that circulate informally. What distinguishes the works herein is their articulation of tacit knowledge produced during the course of project development. While they originate in diverse sites of digital humanities scholarship, these project strategically engage contingent audiences. Furthermore, each details conscious decisions that tailor its approach to collaborative creation and implementation. Read the rest of the sixth issue of the Journal of Digital Humanities here.

Journal of Digital Humanities 2.1: Topic Modeling Now Available

The fifth issue of the Journal of Digital Humanities is now available online, with options to download as epub, PDF, or iBook.

The iterative publications Digital Humanities Now and the Journal of Digital Humanities are intended to facilitate this process. DHNow surfaces and distributes the conversations weekly in order to invite participation and feedback.
