Christie Carson’s Questions

Posting from Christie Carson:

1. Does the use of digital resources in the classroom run the risk of creating passivity in our students as we try increasingly to keep them entertained?

2. Does the new discipline of Digital Humanities break down or minimise the distinctiveness of the individual traditional Humanities disciplines?

3. Does the use of computers in the Humanities inevitably push our research towards the Social Sciences model of measuring quantitative data versus appreciating the qualitative aspects of the subjects we study?

4. Does the World Wide Web actually make the world a smaller and more connected place or does it simply give one the impression of connectivity in an increasingly atomised world?
