the 1950 s

[After] World War II … the food industry [took] aim at home cooking per se, rapturously envisioning a day when all contact between the cook and the raw makings of dinner would be obsolete.”

…the Digital Humanities take aim at literary study per se, rapturously envisioning a day when all contact between the scholar and the text would be obsolete.

“institutional support for digital humanities by administrators, foundations, and legislators can work to conceal or compensate for reduced support given to the traditional humanities, and as such can contribute to the undermining of the liberal arts in higher education.”

Richard Grusin“The Dark Side of the Digital Humanities – Part 2”http://www.c21uwm.com/2013/01/09/dark-side-of-the-digital-humanities-part-2/

the dark side of dh
The Dark Side of DH

Digital Humanities is:

insufficiently diverse.

suffers from “techno-utopianism” and “claims to be the solution for every problem.”

“a blind and vapid embrace of the digital”

insists upon coding and gamification to the exclusion of more humanistic practices.

detache[d] from the rest of the humanities (regarding itself as not just “the next big thing,” but “the only thing”).

complicit with the neoliberal transformation of higher education; it “capitulates to bureaucratic and technocratic logic”;

support[ed by] comes administrators who see DH’ers as successful fundraisers and allies in the “creative destruction” of humanities education.
