Dear Colleagues,

The journal Visible Language has just published a special issue on Design and the Digital Humanities. The journal web site is:

http://visiblelanguagejournal.com

This is the December 2015 issue, edited by Jessica Barness and Amy Papaelias. The issue is titled

Critical Making. Design and the Digital Humanities.

The Visible Language web site is about to go through a major upgrade and renewal, with the contents of the first 50 years of this fine journal made available open access following a short embargo period on current contents. This issue is not yet visible on the journal web site … subscribing libraries will soon have digital access through digital resource collections.

Founded half a century ago, Visible Language is the oldest design journal in the world. For those interested in design, it is worth a look — especially with the full contents accessible as open access documents.

Happy New Year,

Ken Friedman

Dear all,

Marcello Vitali-Rosati, a colleague of mine at the Université de Montréal, just published an article on the concept of editorialization which should be of interest to members of this list:

Pamphlet 11
Literary Lab, Stanford University (January 2016)


"Of the novelties introduced by digitization in the study of literature, the size of the archive is probably the most dramatic: we used to work on a couple of hundred nineteenth-century novels, and now we can analyze thousands of them, tens of thousands, tomorrow hundreds of thousands. It’s a moment of euphoria, for quantitative literary history: like having a telescope that makes you see entirely new galaxies. And it’s a moment of truth: so, have the digital skies revealed anything that changes our knowledge of literature?"
