Subject: Digitization VS Digitalization: is there any difference? Dear colleagues, Since some months, I have been thinking about the distinction between "digitization" and "digitalization", a difference that does not exist in French for example. The word "digitalization" can often be found on Google in DH volumes, but generally, it simply refers to this collected essay: Willard McCarty (ed.). 2010. /Text and Genre in Reconstruction: Effects of Digitalization on Ideas, Behavious, Products and Institutions/. Cambridge, OpenBook Publishers. However, "digitalization" is present only in the title of this book. Willard kindly explained to me that it was the publisher wish to get it in the title. Moreover, we have apparently only one article of definition of both concepts (not in OA): J. Scott Brennen and Daniel Kreiss. 2016. Digitalization (<)https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/abs/10.1002/9781118766804.wbiect111). /International Encyclopedia of Communication Theory and Philosophy/ 23 October:1-11. As for me, I did a first lecture on this binomial expression in France (Nice 2019), with the video here (<)https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VEWyrmGRkoA&list=PLwfNs3lhppctnSaZhAsFzjDZkN4KZ rJUx&index=4&t=0s), and I have a paper accepted on the topic at the AIUCD 2020. I am now interested in raising the debate here: do you think that there is any difference between these two English words? In DH in particular?
