CfP: De-centering Interdisciplinary Studies Within the Space of Digital Humanities
International Conference RAACE 2017 - Special Session on Digital Humanities
23-25 November 2017, hosted by St. Xavier’s College, Jaipur
Encountering changing perspectives on the enclosure of digitalization in academia, one looks at the text through the lens of digital transference. There is a noticeable expansion in the understanding of text from the verbal, visual, oral, and numeric data to embracing varied forms of maps, prints, and music, archives of sound, of films, videos, and any computer-stored information. Digitalization has initiated a process of mediation between traditional humanities disciplines like history, literature, philosophy, sociology, psychology, economics, media studies, culture studies, social computing, and Digital Humanities. As a result, DH emerges as a rubric that assembles a range of interdisciplinary and cross-disciplinary concerns.
DH has been paving way for new research and methods of teaching and learning. The emerging concerns include locating the text in cultural, social, and literary periphery by establishing superiority of the digital text. It is imperative for scholars to critique the impact of digital culture on society. Deciphering humanities with the tools provided by computing, this session invites original interdisciplinary submissions from multiple perspectives exploring themes given below.
