Humanities in the Digital Age in Inside Higher Ed

Inside Higher Ed today published “Humanities in the Digital Age,” a brief opinion piece I co-authored with Alan Liu, immediate past chair of the Department of English at University of California, Santa Barbara. As department chairs, we decided a voice was missing in the current anxiety about the humanities and the digital. Both of us are interested in moving the humanities from conceiving of digital work as a separate category to infusing digital practices and technologies throughout our departments and disciplines. This piece aims to make the case for the full integration of the digital throughout the humanities.
