Digital Humanities

Drew noted the digital and textual elements of the digital humanities and the enhanced ability to share information. I think that the dissemination of information is pivotal to our ability to continuous grow as a society. As images and symbols become more and more recognizable, we began to streamline and operationalize our information. I’ve been mulling over the dichotomy of the coldness of the digital component, or the speed with which one can impersonally spread information, and the warmness and palpable nature of the humanities. I love what Professor Kroll said about the actual reading experience. There is a tactile element that helps connect you to a piece when on pen and paper. That is why I LOVED the knottedline site! It restored what I previously thought was lost on the Digital Humanities, physically manipulatable material.
