Week Six

Foucault and Digital Humanities

In week 6, we continued thinking about Foucault’s Archeology of Knowledge and how it relates to the digital humanities. We considered the same question for our journal as we did in week 5:

How do Foucault’s methods of discourse analysis translate into the digital realm?  How does the discourse of digital technology itself impact upon the the uses of technology to represent discourses for literary and cultural analysis?  Or has the development of new technologies altered the field in a way that makes Foucault’s methodologies no longer relevant?  Continue this conversation as we continue our readings of Foucault over the final weeks of the course.
