Hybrid DIJ Study Group session on Digital Hermeneutics

Perspectives from the history and philosophy of science have helped conceptualizing knowledge production in the digital humanities (DH). In the laboratory setting, the concept of the trading zone has proved to be fruitful. Arguing that DH tools can be considered as experimental systems in the sense of Hans-Jörg Rheinberger, this lecture aims at proceeding beyond the laboratory setting and embrace the heterogeneity of DH scholarship as an interdisciplinary field of research. Based on the results of a two-day workshop at the German Institute for Japanese Studies, the lecture will try to integrate perspectives on epistemic virtues from the Global South, most notably those reflecting the decolonization of our current knowledge infrastructure and economy.
