Computational Humanities Reading Group

Quantitative Transgressions: Computing and Quantitative Methods in History and Literary Studies. This term the Computational Humanities Reading Group (CHRG) will examine three recent cases where it appears that scholarship in the humanities and interpretive social sciences has failed to use quantitative evidence skillfully. Are these cases the expected outcome of explorations of new methods? Might an infelicitous use of quantitative methods ever be intentional? Are more mundane explanations credible, such as publishers' failures to match articles with suitable reviewers? Join us this year as we consider cases from history and literary studies. The topic for November's meeting of the CHRG is "The History Manifesto: A Critique." See IDAH's website for links to readings and further information.
