The Digital Humanities: Beyod Computin
g
edited by Federica Frabetti

The field of the digital humanities embraces various scholarly  activities in the humanities that involve writing about digital media  and technology as well as being engaged in digital media production.  Perhaps most notably, in what some are describing as a ‘computational  turn’, it has seen techniques and methods drawn from computer science  being used to produce new ways of understanding and approaching  humanities texts. But just as interesting as what computer science has  to offer the humanities is the question of what the humanities have to  offer computer science. Do the humanities really need to draw so heavily  on computer science to develop their sense of what the digital  humanities might be? These are just some of the issues that are explored  in this special issue of Culture Machine.
