Occupying the Digital Humanities
Rice, Jeff
College English, v75 n4 p360-378 Mar 2013
This essay questions the digital humanities' dependence on interpretation and critique as strategies for reading and responding to texts. Instead, the essay proposes suggestion as a digital rhetorical practice, one that does not replace hermeneutics, but instead offers alternative ways to respond to texts. The essay uses the Occupy movement as an example and, in particular, focuses on the circulated image of a police officer pepper spraying protesters at one event in order to show how suggestion functions within a network of moments and associations. (Contains 5 notes.)
