** New DH book and companion blog **
Quantitative Methods in the Humanities - An Introduction, by Claire Lemercier and Claire Zalc
"Conceived primarily for historians, the book will prove invaluable to other humanists, as well as to social scientists looking for a nontechnical introduction to quantitative methods. Covering the most recent techniques, in addition to others not often enough discussed, the book will also have much to offer to the most seasoned practitioners of quantification." University of Virginia Press: https://www.upress.virginia.edu/title/5168.
The companion blog explores methods discussed in the book as well as how it might be used in DH teaching: https://quanthum.hypotheses.org.
Book soon to be ordered by the Taylor Institution Library.
