Historical Scholarship in the Digital Age

Things Noted

Siva Viadhyanathan, Generational Myth Chronicle
“Consider all the pundits, professors, and pop critics who have wrung their hands over the inadequacies of the so-called digital generation of young people filling our colleges and jobs. Then consider those commentators who celebrate the creative brilliance of digitally adept youth. To them all, I want to ask: Whom are you talking about? There is no such thing as a ‘digital generation.'”

Rachel Leow, Indulgence and Sin A Historian’s Craft
“I am reading my slow, marvellous way through the Yule-Cordier edition of The Travels of Marco Polo, armed with Google Maps, Google Images, Wikipedia and the 1911 Encyclopedia Britannica.”

Lisa Spiro, Is Wikipedia Becoming a Respectable Academic Resource? Digital Scholarship in the Humanities
“How many humanities and social sciences researchers are discussing, using, and citing Wikipedia?”
