The Digital Humanities is About Breaking Stuff

The Digital Humanities is About Breaking Stuff

The excellent “Hybrid Pedagogy” on moving beyond “building stuff’ and “sharing stuff” … 

“In fact, the course itself is one of the central texts we must consider, a collection of stories about reading and writing that can be actively hacked and remixed. Sean Michael Morris writes, “A course today is an act of composition,” an active present participle and not a static container. This is more and more true of courses that live even partially online, demanding we thoughtfully examine the digital as a frame, while recognizing that the digital does not supersede and can never unseat the work we do in the world. Kathi Inman Berens writes, “It doesn’t matter to me if my classroom is a little rectangle in a building or a little rectangle above my keyboard. Doors are rectangles; rectangles are portals. We walk through.” This is where learning happens, at the breaking point of its various containers. The semester is arbitrary. The course is breached. Canons must yield.

This is true just as well of the literary texts we analyze (and ask students to analyze) with digital tools.”
