For those readers who are just dipping their toes into the vast digital humanities world, here is a list of books and blogs that got me started, and that will hopefully help you too.
1. Distant Reading by Franco Moretti
This book discusses Moretti’s thought process over the course of his career, and lays out his concept of distant reading, which is a basis for a lot of Digital Humanities work in Literary Studies.
2. Macroanalysis by Matthew Jockers
In Macroanalysis, Jockers discusses ways to put distant reading to work from a more technologically-minded perspective. He discusses different programs available to humanists interested in delving into the Digital Humanities.
