Subject: first appearance of the words «digital humanities» Il 19/10/19 06:49, Humanist ha scritto: >> neighboring disciplines have moved in". Another way of saying somewhat >> the same thing is that interdisciplinary research, to which a >> methodological field like ours is committed, requires a discipline from >> which to be interdisciplinary. > Was there EVER such a discipline? Stylometrics? Library and Information Science > (itself a hybrid)? As you well know, Willard, the term 'digital humanities' > was coined well after the activities had been moving along for half a century, > sometimes under the rubric of 'computers and the humanities'. for history's sake. for what i know the first appearance of the words «digital humanities» is around 1997/98: Dennis Dillion. «The Changing Role of Humanities Collection Development». The Acquisitions Librarian 9, n. 17–18 (November 3 1997): 5–15. https://doi.org/10.1300/J101v09n17_02. David Green. «The National Initiative for a Networked Cultural Heritage». Information Technology and Libraries 17, n. 2 (1998): 107. i would be glad to know of any other previous occurrences of the two words together. the reason for this archaeology of names, is that only after we have a name, we can clearly identify a thing and speak of it. best maurizio _______________________________________________ Unsubscribe at: http://dhhumanist.org/Restricted List posts to: firstname.lastname@example.org List info and archives at at: http://dhhumanist.org Listmember interface at: http://dhhumanist.org/Restricted/ Subscribe at: http://dhhumanist.org/membership_form.php
