Steven Jones - The Network Inside Out and the New Digital Humanities Steven Jones, Professor of English & Co-director of the Center for Textual Studies and Digital Humanities, Loyola University, Chicago Keynote Talk, Digital Humanities Forum 2014: Nodes & Networks in the Humanities. University of Kansas September 12, 2014 http://idrh.ku.edu/dhforum2014/ -- The rise to prominence of the Digital Humanities in the past decade can be understood as a response to a simultaneous shift in the collective imagination of the digital network. What was once understood to be a transcendent virtual reality apart from the body and the physical environment is now experienced as if it had turned inside out and spilled out into the physical world, a ubiquitous mesh of data and connections to data that we move through every day. This topological shift in the way we figure the network--what author William Gibson has called the eversion of cyberspace--has important implications for the theory and practice of the humanities, calling for a heightened critical attention to the social, locative, embodied, and object-oriented nature of our experience in the networked world.
