The Digital Humanities As Cultural Capital: Implications For Biblical And Religious Studies, Caroline T. Schroeder Dec 2016

The Digital Humanities As Cultural Capital: Implications For Biblical And Religious Studies, Caroline T. Schroeder

Caroline Schroeder

Although the study of the Bible was central to early Humanities Computing efforts, now Biblical Studies and Religious Studies are marginal disciplines in the emerging field known as Digital Humanities (English, History, Library Science, for example, are much more influential in DH.)

“Hiv/Aids And The Bible In Tanzania: A Contextual Re-Reading Of 2 Samuel 13:1-14:33, Mussa Simom Muneja

Mussa Muneja
