Rabea Kleymann: Data Diffraction: A Counternarrative to Integration for Digital Humanities Research
Lecture in context of the conference Digital Humanities: Responding to Asian Diversity of the Alliance of Digital Humanities Organizations, 25–29 Jul 2022
Asia has a long history of digital humanistic research, reaching back to the 1950s. Over the past several years, the ADHO DH conferences have seen a steady increase in participation and presentations by scholars from India, Central Asia, Southeast Asia, Taiwan, China, Korea, and Japan. There is a closeness among Asian neighbors not only geographically, but also in terms of shared history, cultural values, and linguistic connections. With this background in mind, DH2022 provides an opportunity to showcase not only DH in Japan, but to also provide a window into the breadth of DH research and teaching throughout the Asian region.
The literary scholar Rabea Kleymann is research associate with the project Diffractive Epistemics: Cultures of Knowledge in the Digital Humanities.
