Walter J. Ong Memorial Lecture

I’m looking forward to visiting St. Louis University next week to give the sixth Walter J. Ong Memorial Lecture on “The Eversion of the Network and the Emergence of the Digital Humanities” (Wednesday, March 26, 4:00 PM). The lecture is sponsored by the interdisciplinary Ong Center for Language, Media and Culture.

Citations sighted

Over on the Tumblr for The Emergence of the Digital Humanities, I’ve noted a few interesting recent citations to the book, one on a British Library Digital Scholarship blog, one on a blog dedicated to the works of H. P. Lovecraft, and one on Digital Shakespeares.

The Emergence of the Digital Humanities was named book of the week this week by the libraries and publishing journal, Against The Grain.

And now you can read chapters 1 and 2 of The Emergence of the Digital Humanities over on the Tumblr.

You can now read the Introduction to The Emergence of the Digital Humanities at the publisher’s Website, and I’ve just posted chapter 1 in its entirety on the book’s Tumblr.
