Big Digital Humanities: Imagining a Meeting Place for the by Patrik Svensson

By Patrik Svensson

Big electronic Humanities has its origins in a chain of seminal articles Patrik Svensson released within the Digital Humanities Quarterly among 2009 and 2012. As those articles have been popping out, enthusiasm round electronic Humanities was once buying loads of momentum and critical confrontation approximately what did or didn’t “count” as electronic Humanities paintings. Svensson’s articles supplied a commonly wanted omnibus of electronic Humanities heritage, perform, and thought. They have been informative and an expert and tended to foreground reportage and clarification instead of utopianism or territorial contentiousness. In revising his unique paintings for publication e-book, Svensson has spoke back to either next suggestions and new developments.


Svensson’s personal particular point of view and unique stake within the electronic Humanities dialog comes from his position as director of the HUMlab at Umeå college. HUMlab is a different collaborative area and electronic Humanities heart, which formally opened its doorways in 2000. based on its personal authentic description, the HUMlab is an open, artistic studio atmosphere the place “students, researchers, artists, marketers and overseas site visitors come jointly to have interaction in discussion, scan with know-how, tackle demanding situations and circulate scholarship forward.” it truly is this final point “moving scholarship ahead” that Svensson argues is the true chance in what he phrases the “big electronic humanities,” or electronic humanities as practiced in collaborative areas just like the HUMlab, and he's uniquely situated to take an account of this evolving measurement of electronic Humanities practice.
