    Reflections on the Academic Book of the Future.Guyda Armstrong - 2017 - Humanist Studies and the Digital Age 5 (1):46-63.
    This article had its genesis in the joint paper we gave at the Scholarly Networks and the Emerging Platforms for Humanities Research and Publication Colloquium in April 2015. At that point, we were at the beginning of the Academic Book of the Future Project, which had been funded to run for two years from October 2014 by the UK’s Arts and Humanities Research Council and the British Library. As we write this contribution, the Project has just launched its two final (...)

    Galileo's Ariosto: The Value of a Mixed Methods Approach to Literary Analysis.Crystal Hall - 2017 - Humanist Studies and the Digital Age 5 (1):96-107.
    Using Galileo Galilei's Saggiatore and Ludovico Ariosto's Orlando furioso as a focal point, this article evaluates a mixed methods approach for identifying matches of words and phrases that are rich material for close reading and contextualization. The method focuses on ngram matches and networks of phrases that are used together. The similarity of Galileo's treatise to Ariosto's poem is compared to 45 other early modern Italian texts to evaluate the relative exceptionalism or normality of the findings. Ngram matches reveal a (...)
