演讲摘要:
Historically, the field of Digital Humanities has developed in a very anglophone environment with a preponderance of text based scholarship. We are now seeing an interest in exploring culture and heritage more widely. Geographic inclusion, however, does not necessarily equate to scholarly inclusion, particularly if language is a barrier to that inclusiveness. This presentation looks at the growth of DH beyond the anglophone/European sphere and the challenges that cross-cultural initiatives present. Just as the artefacts we produce are the results of cultural influences, so too are the writings, our cognitive processes, and how we view and understand the world around us. This also draws on my research into cross-cultural teaching, examines some of the issues that become apparent when working across disciplinary and ethnic boundaries, and considers some of the growing number of collaborative DH projects that focus on Chinese literature and cultural heritage. Restricting our cultural perspective is restricting our field; inclusion benefits us all.
