Description

Title:What is Humanities Computing and What is Not?
Author(s):Unsworth, John
Subject(s):Humanities computing
Knowledge representation
Abstract:Humanities computing is a practice of representation, a form of modeling or, as Wallace Stevens has it, mimicry. It is also (as Davis and his co-authors put it) a way of reasoning and a set of ontological commitments, and its representational practice is shaped by the need for efficient computation on the one hand, and for human communication on the other.
