Keywords:digital humanities, religious studies
The Download is your introduction to the digital humanities. Jeri Wieringa (University of Alabama) brings you up to speed on the history and currents of this enterprise, especially as it takes shape in and around the academic study of religion. In this edition, Wieringa highlights key issues discussed in Christopher D. Cantwell and Kristian Petersen’s edited volume, Digital Humanities and Research Methods in Religious Studies (DeGruyter 2021). This piece expands on a response essay published by our content partners at the Religious Studies Project. We invite you to check out the broader conversation hosted on their website: https://www.religiousstudiesproject.com/podcast/mapping-the-digital-study-of-religion/.
