From the Editors

From the Editors We are pleased to launch the first of several special issues designed to highlight cutting-edge research, methods, applications, literature, and websites in key fields of humanities and arts computing. The current double issue on variationist linguistics and computational humanities is an exemplar of what we hope to accomplish, especially in shortening the time it takes for important papers to move from initial presentation to publication. Under the guest editorship of John Nerbonne, Professor of Humanities Computing, Charlotte Gooskens, Associate Professor of Scandinavian Languages and Literature, both at the University of Groningen, The Netherlands, Sebastian Kürschner, Tenure track position (‘Juniorprofessur’) in variationist linguistics and language contact at the University of Erlangen-Nürnberg, Germany, and Renée van Bezooijen, Researcher at the University of Groningen, The Netherlands. This issue also introduces a roundtable discussion that we intend to become a regular feature of these special editions. The aim of the forum is to assess contributions to the field and link them to the broader interests of humanities and arts computing, as well as to highlight opportunities for connection and research within and among disciplines. Over the next year, we will publish two additional thematic issues. Volume 3.1 will focus on humanities GIS. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png International Journal of Humanities and Arts Computing Edinburgh University Press

Abstract

We are pleased to launch the first of several special issues designed to highlight cutting-edge research, methods, applications, literature, and websites in key fields of humanities and arts computing. The current double issue on variationist linguistics and computational humanities is an exemplar of what we hope to accomplish, especially in shortening the time it takes for important papers to move from initial presentation to publication. Under the guest editorship of John Nerbonne, Professor of Humanities Computing, Charlotte Gooskens, Associate Professor of Scandinavian Languages and Literature, both at the University of Groningen, The Netherlands, Sebastian Kürschner, Tenure track position (‘Juniorprofessur’) in variationist linguistics and language contact at the University of Erlangen-Nürnberg, Germany, and Renée van Bezooijen, Researcher at the University of Groningen, The Netherlands. This issue also introduces a roundtable discussion that we intend to become a regular feature of these special editions. The aim of the forum is to assess contributions to the field and link them to the broader interests of humanities and arts computing, as well as to highlight opportunities for connection and research within and among disciplines. Over the next year, we will publish two additional thematic issues. Volume 3.1 will focus on humanities GIS.
