Pamela Fletcher Interviewed for LARB “The Digital in the Humanities” Series

In March 2016 journalist Melissa Dinsman began a new series for the Los Angeles Review of Books (LARB): “The Digital in the Humanities.” In late June LARB published Dinsman’s interview with Pamela Fletcher, Professor of Art History at Bowdoin and one of the founding co-directors of DCS. Professor Fletcher’s remarks highlight the value of humanistic inquiry of digital methods and objects as well as the ways in which a computational or digital approach can reshape the questions we ask of cultural objects. The piece is pleasantly provocative reading after the flurry of debate that surrounded an earlier LARB piece on digital humanities, which can be found along with links to responses in a summary post by dh+lib.
