Digital Humanities

A computational critique of a computational critique of computational critique.

Nan Da has a critique of some subset of digital humanities in Critical Inquiry. She calls it “Computational Literary Studies,” or CLS. I will happily adopt that acronym because 1.) it’s not, as far as I know, associated with any author; and 2.) after this particular article, it’s unlikely anyone will ever use it again. I started taking some notes on it, and rapidly fell into finding so mistakes that I figured I’d post it.
