    Abstract

    Digital Humanities: Knowledge and Critique is a book for our time. It comes just as another wave of assault on “critical” approaches in literary studies rolls over us and asks us to consider what it means to unreflexively adopt digital approaches amid humanist thinking. The work and the authors value computational thinking so long as it is not at the expense of the centuries of humanistic tradition on which it could build. The work thinks about its subject at both the institutional and the personal research level; it is an important book for those “on the ground” doing the research and for university managers who must implement the research architectures that will allow the digital humanities to thrive.
