digital humanities

There was a renewed flurry of thinking and observing about the relationship between theory and DH, especially around the "less yack/more hack" approach to THATCamps. I'd like to pick up a bit on the comment that I left on "When DH Was In Vogue; or, THATCamp Theory" , and respond a little to Jean Bauer's "Who You Calling Untheoretical?".

There's been some great talk lately about hacking in the humanities at THATCamps Prime (aka, CHNM) and Victoria. At CHNM, I proposed two directions for humanists talking about code. One direction was to get coders and hackers and humanists together to see what we could learn about how we read and understand code. The other was a hands-on 'lets start learning how to hack' session.
