Of Five or Ten Minds about Collaboration

The Co-Creators of 10 Print and Digital_Humanities Get Together to Talk About New Academic Authoring

January 22, 2013, 12:00 pm   » 

A presentation and discussion about emerging models of collaborative writing and scholarship featuring authors of the recently published 10 PRINT CHR$(205.5+RND(1)); : GOTO 10 and Digital_Humanities (both from the MIT Press). 10 Print takes a single line of code—the extremely concise BASIC program for the Commodore 64 inscribed in the title—and uses it as a lens through which to consider the phenomenon of creative computing and the way computer programs exist in culture. Digital_Humanities explores methodologies and techniques unfamiliar to traditional modes of humanistic inquiry—including geospatial analysis, data mining, corpus linguistics, visualization, and simulation—to revitalize the liberal arts tradition in the electronically inflected, design-driven, multimedia language of the twenty-first century. The authors chose to create unified, choral voices for their books, a choice more common in the sciences than the humanities, rather than collecting individually attributed chapters or essays. From 10 Print: Nick Montfort (MIT), Jeremy Douglass (UCSB), Mark C. Marino (USC), and Casey Reas (UCLA). From Digital_Humanities: Anne Burdick (Art Center), Johanna Drucker (UCLA), Peter Lunenfeld (UCLA), and Todd Presner (UCLA).
