Debates in the Digital Humanities

Bethany Nowviskie

University of Minnesota Press

This chapter begins by presenting an exchange of tweets spawned by the news that two out of thirty-three speakers at the “Digging into Data Challenge” conference are women. The author then expresses her belief that the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) and other “Digging into Data” supporters do a consistently brilliant job of identifying sensitive and qualified peer reviewers and funding worthy projects. She says that the NEH’s digital humanities programs, in particular, are broadly representative of the actual makeup of the field. Any gender imbalance has little to do with the Digging into Data grant-making process and more with broader issues, going all the way back to Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) education for girls in the public schools.
