With this fourth issue we wrap up the first year of the Journal of
Digital Humanities, and with it, our first twelve months of attempting
to find and promote digital scholarship from the open web using a
system of layered review. The importance of assessment and the
scholarly vetting process around digital scholarship has been foremost
in our minds, as it has in the minds of many others this year. As digital
humanities continues to grow and as more scholars and disciplines
become invested in its methods and results, institutions and scholars
increasingly have been debating how to maintain academic rigor while
accepting new genres and the openness that the web promotes.
From Journal of Digital Humanities, VOL. 1 NO. 4 FALL 2012
Interesting account, but more analysis needed; I’m sure it has been done, just need to do the needed research. Creating ecosystems is seldom easy. And there are differences between semiconductor and computer fabs and automobile, if only in the materials and industrial tolerances. And then there is the issue of toxic pollution.
One of the more interesting things I’ve been doing is going through the literature on ICT4D (or, ICT for development). The bibliography maintained by the Manchester Uni.’s School of Env. and Dev. is very useful. See:
My other favourites are those to be found at Stanfords CDDRL (http://cddrl.stanford.edu/publications/) but the bibliography is not as extensive as Manchester’s.
The Canadian Citizen Lab (out of UofT) has become a necessary locus for work related to privacy, but other topics are also featured (see https://citizenlab.org/publications/).
