Digital Humanities: Next Steps

Just published: a report, including several papers, from the September 2008 symposium held by the Council on Library and Information Resources and the National Endowment for the Humanities, titled:

Working Together of Apart: Promoting the Next Generation of Digital Scholarship

The purpose of the symposium was to explore the intersections between the humanities, social sciences, and computer science. There were two fundamental questions framing the meeting: 1) how are the interpretation and analysis of texts, images and other media, as well as their expression and related pedagogy, being transformed by digital applications, and 2) what kinds of research in computer science will be driven by the research, questions, and needs of digital humanities and social science scholars?
