The Routledge Handbook of English Language and Digital Humanities serves as a reference point for key developments related to the ways in which the digital turn has shaped the study of the English language, and of how the resulting methodological approaches have permeated other disciplines. It draws on modern linguistics and discourse analysis for its analytical methods, and applies these approaches to the exploration and theorisation of issues within the Humanities.

Divided into three sections, this handbook covers:

  • sources and corpora;
  • analytical approaches;
  • English language at the interface with other areas of research in the Digital Humanities.

In covering these areas, more traditional approaches and methodologies in the Humanities are re-cast and research challenges are re-framed through the lens of the digital. The essays in this volume highlight the opportunities for new questions to be asked and long standing questions to be re-considered when drawing on the digital in Humanities research.

This is a ground-breaking collection of essays offering incisive and essential reading for anyone with an interest in the English language and Digital Humanities.
