Subject: Web-Driven ? Willard The other day, Max Kemman pointed me in the direction of the work of Patrik Svensson where I found this phrase: "the digital humanities engages with the digital as a tool, as an object of inquiry, and as an expressive medium." From my reading of Humanist I have gathered the impression that communities and individuals have focussed on the digital as tool and as object of inquiry. I wonder about attention to the digital as medium of expression. Towards the end of an interview with Kemman, Svensson questions the drive to the generic and the interoperable. See his remarks beginning at 35 minutes in. An audience member at a conference demo asked when will the installation be ported to the Web. Svensson's response is in essence an invitation to ask how an infrastructure might be reproduced elsewhere, an invitation to interrogate the ubiquity of one particular infrastructure. https://www.c2dh.uni.lu/data/lecture-patrik-svensson-unframing-infrastructure- recording-and-interview Will the WWW continue to drive the digital humanities? Is this a fair question?
