The Short Guide, a subsection of Digital_Humanities that my coauthors (Anne Burdick, Johanna Drucker, Peter Lunenfeld and Todd Presner) and I devised both for DH practitioners and for department chairs, deans, promotion committees, provosts and university presidents, is now being released, section by section and with a video preface, by the online edition of the Bard Graduate Center’s journal of decorative arts, design history and material culture W 86th. Though it refers back to the arguments of earlier chapters of our MIT Press book, the Short Guide also stands alone as an overview of the field. As digital methodologies, tools, and skills become central to work in the humanities, questions regarding fundamentals, project outcomes, assessment, and design have grown in importance. So the Short Guide
sets out to provide a set of checklists and guidelines in concise
and shareable form.
Below you will find also images of the individual pages that make up the Short Guide.
