Welcome to the Bubble Chamber: Online in the humanities today

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

New scholarly resources are undoubtedly helping to change the methods of inquiry in media history and the humanities more broadly. However, this essay raises the question of the ways in which they are also helping to change the substance of that inquiry. Any satisfying approach to this issue must entail multiple strands. The author uses an analogy to the field of particle physics to illustrate the multiple issues this question raises and to suggest some possible answers.
