  4. 4. www.bl.uk 4 “The emergence of the new digital humanities isn’t an isolated academic phenomenon. The institutional and disciplinary changes are part of a larger cultural shift, inside and outside the academy, a rapid cycle of emergence and convergence in technology and culture” Steven E Jones, Emergence of the Digital Humanities (2014)

  7. 7. www.bl.uk 7 “Literary scholars and historians have in the past been limited in their analyses of print culture by the constraints of physical archives and human capacity. A lone scholar cannot read, much less make sense of, millions of newspaper pages. With the aid of computational linguistics tools and digitized corpora, however, we are working toward a large-scale, systemic understanding of how texts were valued and transmitted during this period” David A. Smith, Ryan Cordell, and Elizabeth Maddock Dillon, ‘Infectious Texts: Modeling Text Reuse in Nineteenth-Century Newspapers’ (2013) http://www.ccs.neu.edu/home/dasmith/infect-bighum-2013.pdf

  16. 16. www.bl.uk 16 “Library based skunkworks - or semi- independent, research-oriented software prototyping and makerspace labs—are an uncommon, yet uncommonly potent, response to opportunities that open up when we pay increased organizational attention to digital tools, methods, and cultures across the humanities […] We might therefore consider a digital humanities skunkworks operation not only as a site for research innovation, but as an organizational experiment in breaking away from shop-worn service relationships.” Bethany Nowviskie, ‘Skunks in the Library: A Path to Production for Scholarly R&D’, Journal of Library Administration 53:1 (2013), 53-59.
