Podcast 2: That anti-DH LARB article

**Apologies for a few tiny audio glitches in this episode – we’re still working on perfecting our audio setup.**

In this podcast we discuss the article published in the Los Angeles Review of Books in May 2016 that criticized the Digital Humanities more broadly, some of the criticisms of it that followed, and relate this to some of our experiences in DH.

(anti-DH) LARB article – Neoliberal Tools (and Archives): A Political History of Digital Humanities (May 1, 2016)

LARB DH series – The Digital in the Humanities: An Interview with Bethany Nowviskie (May 9, 2016)
