Present, Not Voting: Digital Humanities in the Panopticon

By Justin Tonra, on 14 July 2010

At the close of last week’s annual Digital Humanities conference, DH2010, Transcribe Bentham member Melissa Terras delivered a plenary lecture which introduced the project to the assembled audience and succeeded in addressing many of the current concerns of the Digital Humanities discipline with precision and clarity.

Panopticon

Dr Terras’s lecture is timely and engaging, and should be of immense appeal both to Bentham scholars and enthusiasts, and to anyone interested in hearing an overview of the central issues and concerns in the field of Digital Humanities at the present time. Both the text and a video of the lecture are now available online.
