Special Issue "Digital Humanities"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 April 2020).
Interests: conceptual modeling; metamodeling; cultural heritage; discourse; semantics; situational method engineering
Digital humanities have been described as carrying out humanistic work with the support of digital tools and/or doing humanistic work concerning the digital world. In either case, digital humanities are in vogue, and many researchers in the humanities regularly carry out their work in information- and computing-intensive settings. However, there is no consensus on what digital humanities are, whether they constitute a new discipline, or what their scope is supposed to be.
This Special Issue of Information attempts to shed some light on these issues by focusing on the role information plays in humanistic research and, specifically, how humanistic knowledge is generated, communicated, used, and institutionalized through information-intensive tools, techniques, and methods. Relevant areas are those that are important to the humanities, such as how things are documented and described; how natural language is incorporated into the research process; how time, space, subjectivity, change, and multilingualism affect reasoning and knowledge production; how computing techniques (such as big data, artificial intelligence, visualization, and many others) can help in the humanities; how socio-technical issues (such as specialized education, social networks, information reuse, or multidisciplinarity) impact humanities research; and any other aspects of humanistic research that are often performed in information-intensive settings.
I hope this initiative is of interest to you, and I look forward to your submissions.
Dr. Cesar Gonzalez-Perez
