MEDIA REVIEWS

"At last, a thorough field study that does not approach the digital humanities as a sole entity, but puts the practices of humanities researchers central. This comprehensive, multifaceted ethnography of the expectations, successes, but also failures of all sorts of actors using digital methods in humanities research should not only be read by (digital) humanists or collaborating computer scientists. Policy makers of universities and funding organizations could also benefit from this empirical exploration of how digital humanists work in practice." - Charles van den Heuvel, Chair, Digital Methods and Historical Disciplines, University of Amsterdam, The Netherlands

"Finally someone is paying attention to what people are really doing when they say they are doing digital humanities. Antonijevi? brings empirical depth and analytic clarity to a field often characterized either by overblown claims of radical transformation or deep skepticism about the possibilities of digital technologies. This book is essential reading for those engaged with digital humanities - as researchers, hardware and software developers, university administrators, librarians and archivists, and funders." - Sally Wyatt, Programme Leader, eHumanities Group, Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences

"This ethnography of 258 digital humanities practitioners - seen as individual scholars doing 'boundary work,' and as participants in disciplinary and organizational evolution - moves us decisively beyond the 'who's in/who's out' misunderstandings of the past several years. Antonijevi?'s insightful study demonstrates that, when it comes to new modes of knowledge production in the humanities, we're all in." - Bethany Nowviskie, Research Associate, Professor, Digital Humanities, University of Virginia, USA

"This thorough and far-reaching study of academic research practices fills an important gap in debates about the Digital Humanities. Using extensive ethnographic research at twenty-three institutions in Europe and the US, Antonijevi? provides engaging analysis of digitally mediated knowledge practices in the humanities from three perspectives: individual scholar, discipline, and institution. An invaluable contribution to research into the changing roles and habits of the (increasingly digital) Humanist." - Paul Spence, King's College London, UK
