Fra ‘letterario’ e digitale: alle origini delle Digital Humanities

Andrea Cuna (Università di Udine)

Abstract

Padre Roberto Busa è universalmente considerato il fondatore dello Humanities Computing (HC) per il suo approccio pionieristico all’analisi del testo, che ha aperto la strada alla linguistica computazionale. Questo focus iniziale sul ‘letterario’ si è indirizzato nel corso degli anni verso nuove modalità d’interazione fra umanistiche e computing. Le Digital Humanities (DH) rappresentano un contesto di natura metodologica e di portata interdisciplinare. Questo contributo intende esplorare a grandi linee la transizione fra HC e DH, nel tentativo di evidenziare i principali elementi di continuità e/o di cambiamento.
