What does one do before huge, nearly infinite, amounts of documents available today?
The use of structured and/or tagged approaches to identify persons, themes, places, or features of a text provides a way to maximize the intellectual investigation of documents and to display these interpretations.
Digital Humanities seek to find new epistemological models, beyond linear prose and classical forms of argumentation. This includes an intellectual practice which appears to be rarely named, but which has become essential: critical curation.
Critical curation is an essential scholarly practice in the print-plus and post-print world.
