Digital_Humanities came out last week from MIT Press and the open edition quickly made the rounds and even yielded a couple of flash reviews. Here’s the first one, by Dene Grigar, of the Creative Media + Digital Culture Program at Washington State University, published in the online edition of Leonardo:

I begin with a simple directive: Everyone in the academy should read Digital_Humanities, no matter the academic discipline or position, because the book provides a cogent and clear description of a growing area of research, one the authors call “an array of convergent practices” (122) that encompass design, computation, transdisciplinarity, qualitative and quantitative methods, statistical analysis, translation, communication, and a host of other interests and methods that, taken together, have the potential of transforming higher education and, thus, influencing contemporary culture.
