Infographic: Quantifying Digital Humanities
By Melissa M Terras, on 20 January 2012
You may remember that back in December, I (Melissa Terras) gathered some stats about Digital Humanities. I turned these into an infographic, which is available in full technicolour and much higher res than this blog will allow, over at the UCLDH Flickr account. The infographic is courtesy of UCLDH as it generously paid for the graphic design to allow this to happen.
Wait! You want a print version? Well, find a 300dpi CYMK version here.
We at UCLDH are also going to get some printed up as posters -more about that soon, hopefully, once we figure out the costs involved.
Just a few words on the process. This was an inclusive, not an exclusive, attempt at trying to pull together available statistics on Digital Humanities. I’m aware there are a lot of things that dont appear on the infographic – major individual projects, for example. But it was the best that we could do, with the information available. I’m still collecting statistics, and interested in anything else that comes to light – I need to dig out the subscription numbers for LLC in the early 2000s, for example – but if you are not represented here, and have some statistics to share, do let me know via @melissaterras. Depending on reception, we may do an updated version of this.
Additionally, I’d love to hear your comments and suggestions on other things we can do in this vein to scope out and promote our field. Its been fun to put together – even if snow in Seattle stopped play for a week or so in the round of final edits with the designers – and after I’ve done some serious academic work we plan on doing some more of these.
We hope you like it!
