In the last decades, computing has become a standard part of academic and scholarly life, both in American Studies and across the disciplines.
At the least, computers are necessary tools that facilitate research, teaching and communication, but for many practitioners computing has served to reshape both the methods and theories that underlie their work. While many members of the American Studies Association are actively working in areas of digital humanities, and many more are influenced by the rise of new approaches that computing has enabled, there has yet to form a unified point of contact for ASA members interested in pursuing digital humanities from within an American Studies framework.
The Digital Humanities Caucus will work to further communication and collaboration by:

A summary of my (brief) comments at the ASA 2012 conference in San Juan, P.R.

This entry is part of the American Studies and Digital Humanities 2012 Roundtable.
It's true of superheroes. It's also true of scholarly fields. Each one has its origin story. So in this post, I'll present two such tales: one about the origin of the digital, and the other about the origin of the digital humanities. Then, in our session at the ASA, I'll suggest a few ways in which we might, through the lens of American Studies, refract both stories into something more complex-- and consequently, more meaningful-- for understanding today's digital world.
The official hashtag for this year’s ASA conference in San Juan is now #ASA2012. Hope to see you in the backchannel!
